Oven-Roasted Sesame Red Snapper

Oven-Roasted Sesame Red Snapper


  • Cooking spray
  • 4 6-ounce, 3/4-inch-thick red snapper fillets with skin
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Olive oil
  • 1 large scallion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons roasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place an 18-by-24-inch sheet of foil on a cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray. Place fillets in a single layer in the center. Evenly sprinkle garlic and pepper flakes on both sides of fish; leave skin side up. Fold foil in half over fish, leaving a little headspace, then fold to seal edges. Bake 10 minutes or until fish just flakes when tested with a fork.
  2. As fish roasts, heat olive oil in a skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add scallions and cook 30 seconds until just wilted. Set aside.
  3. Using a slotted spatula, transfer fillets to plates. Evenly distribute scallions and sesame oil over fish and drizzle with soy sauce.
