Ginger Snapper


  • cooking spray
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 (2 inch) piece fresh ginger root, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (2 lb.) whole snapper fillet


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a large sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray.

Thoroughly mix the soy sauce, honey, ginger, and garlic in a large bowl. Dip both sides of the fish into the soy sauce mixture, and place onto the aluminum foil. Spoon a little more sauce over the top of the fish. Roll up the aluminum foil to completely enclose the fillet.

Bake in the preheated oven until the fish is opaque and flakes easily, about 20 minutes.

Note: Best fish to use include gray snapper, mutton snapper, yellowtail snapper, or tilapia. Avoid red snapper due to overfishing.

Thank you for mentioning the overfishing of red snapper; too many of our fisheries are struggling to maintain their numbers. A good place to check out the best sustainable choices for fish is the Monterey Bay Aquarium site, Seafood Watch. They also provide some great fish recipes.

What's especially nice about the Seafood Watch site, a lot of the alternative fish choices are also more thrifty than the overfished varieties, and they take care to choose alternatives that are the right texture and flavor to substitute.
