grilled fish recipeAside from salmon and the ever popular tuna, snappers are also among the most favorite and definitely one of the most delicious, too! It’s hearty yet mild which is why it’s on the list of the best fish to barbecue. And speaking of snapper, here’s a delectable recipe we got from Bobby Flay. We just tweaked it a little so that you can cook it on your La Caja China!




* 1 bay leaf

* ½ teaspoon sugar

* 2 serrano peppers, chopped

* 4 tablespoons capers, drained

* 1/2 cup green olives, pitted and chopped

* 4 large tomatoes, chopped

* ½ cup dry white wine

* 4 cloves garlic, chopped

* 2 large onions, sliced

* 4 tablespoons olive oil

* 8 snapper fillets

* 4 tablespoons olive oil

* salt and pepper, freshly ground


Cooking Instructions:


1. To save on charcoals, you can grill your fish together with other food items or when you’re almost done with your meat. Before putting them on the grill, brush your snapper fillets first with olive oil and then season them with salt and freshly ground pepper as you desire.


2. Make sure that your coals aren’t that hot. Remember to only grill fish on medium heat to prevent them from burning. It will also be wise if you have brushed the grates with oil to prevent sticking. Place your snapper fillets on the grill using a spatula to prevent breaking. Grill them for about 2 minutes on each side. Remember to only flip the fillets once. When they’re done, get them out of the grill and set them aside.


3. Now it’s time to make your sauce. Get a sauté pan and heat it on medium-high. Pour your olive oil and let it get hot. Add your sliced onions and chopped garlic. Saute them until they’re soft or until the onion has caramelized. Pour your white wine and let the mixture reduce. Add your green olives, capers, tomatoes, pepper, bay leaf and sugar. Boil the ingredients until the sauce has thickened. When it’s cooked, you can put the fish in the pan and let it simmer for another 2 minutes. Or, you can just top the sauce over the fillets. Serve this with your favorite side dishes!
