Grilled Jerk Whole Red Snapper

Ingredients

6 Servings
Serving Size:185g
* Optional Substitution Note
Jerk blend
  • 3 lb red snapper (or other white fish)
  • juice from 1 lime
Garnish
  • fresh lime
  • fresh parsley (or basil, tarragon, etc)

Steps

Step 1

Wash the fish and pat it dry.  Then place it in a plastic bag, or in the sink, to descale it using the back of a knife or a fish scaler tool.

Make about 3 (slanted) incisions in the flesh of the fish on both sides, scoring it, being careful not to go all the way through to the skin.

Step 2

Add ingredients for the jerk seasoning and oil to a high-powered blender and pulse blend until a paste forms.

Step 3

Rub the paste all over the fish and on the inside as well.  Place in an airtight container or bag in the fridge and let it marinate for at least 4 hours up to overnight.

Step 4

Set your grill to about 300F/149C.

Pro-tip: to help ensure the fish does not stick to the grates, I rub the grates with half a lemon or lime with a little oil.

Step 5

Add the snapper and cook for about 12 – 15 minutes on one side.  Then flip it over to cook for 10 – 12 minutes, or until the fish is firmer and the flesh is white.

Step 6

Garnish and enjoy!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
