Ingredients for the Red Snapper

  • 1 (2 1/2 to 3-pounds) whole red snapper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To make the Red Snapper

Cut fish into 4 to 6 ounce portions. Incise the snapper and season with salt and pepper. In a skillet on medium high heat, sear skin side down with olive oil and butter until crispy.
