    Default Red Snapper on the Weber

    Last night Melinda and I spent a wonderful evening in Sealy, TX. It's about 15 miles west of where we live. After 6 long years, our son Robert is officially out of the Navy and back home in Texas. He and his wife and child are temporarily living with her folks in Sealy. We had to go celebrate.

    His FIL is really big on fishing so fish was on the menu. He baked up a great meal of Red Snapper fresh from the gulf in the oven. It was maaaahvelous! He had planned to grill, but possible bad weather changed his plan. Anyway, he sent us home with some beautiful fillets. I froze one bag and cooked the other on the Weber tonight.






    This is one big fillet cut in half to make easier handling. I smeared it with EVOO and sprinkled with Tony's. Let that rest while I nuked some corn on the cob and fired the Weber.

    The fire was really hotter than I intended, so I didn't cook directly. I set it off with some wood chunks for about ten min. Sorry no pics of that stage. It was flaking nicely already so I pulled it.



    I had also prepared a pkg. of Cajun King's Lemon Butter Amandine Sauce.



    This was spooned over some of the fish.

    So how was it? The fish was cooked perfectly. Moist and flaky, downright juicy. Mama's reaction was ! Way over seasoned! My first few bites, I had to agree. But, as I got further into my big thick fillet it was actually quite good. The sauce was a bit much,even after I diluted it with more butter and lemon than called for. The crunchy almonds were a nice touch though. And the light smoke flavor did wonders.

    Melinda rinsed some of the spice off of hers and was able to enjoy. Overall it was very good. I'm lookin' forward to the next pkg. with a little less spice and skip the sauce or make my own.

    Oh yeah, almost forgot this pic. Corn and slaw rounded it out.

    Looks good!! Snapper is one of my favorite fish to grill.

    It's easy to overwhelm their mild flavor with certain types of seasoning. I like them seasoned with Fire Lime.

    Tim, my stepson Robert just came by this afternoon with three more generous bags and I told him where to get the dry ice and how to get to Okie-land. Aw shucks! Wouldn't ya know it? He was outta gas! Oh well, I'll post pics. Best I can do buddy!

    Jim, thanks for the tip. Tell me more about Fire Lime. Maybe I can try it on Tim's fish.
