Microwave Red Snapper with Lime Sauce

8 Min

After your gang sinks their teeth into this luscious, lime-infused snapper, they'll flip when you tell them how simple it was!

What You'll Need

  • 4 red snapper fillets (about 1-1/2 pounds total)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, cut into thin slices
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges (optional)

What to Do

  1. Place the snapper fillets in a microwave-safe 9" x 13" baking dish; season with the salt and pepper. Squeeze the lime over the fish, and top with the butter slices.
  2. Cover the baking dish, and microwave at 80% power for 4 minutes.
  3. Uncover the dish and sprinkle the fillets with parsley; microwave uncovered for 3 to 4 more minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
