Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon crushed fennel seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 (8-oz.) snapper or other white fish fillets
  • 4 slices lemon
  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, halved

Steps

  • 1
    Lightly oil broiler pan. In small bowl, combine lemon juice, oil, fennel seed, salt and pepper; mix well. Place snapper on oiled pan. Brush with lemon juice mixture.
  • 2
    Broil 4 inches from heat for 5 minutes. Top each fillet with lemon slice; broil an additional 3 to 5 minutes or until fish is no longer translucent in center and flakes easily with fork. Sprinkle with olives.

  • Of the 250 species of snapper, red snapper is the best known. This saltwater fish, named for its color, has firm white flesh and very little fat.
  • Serve sliced fresh fennel and baby carrots, quickly sautéed with garlic and oregano, with this fish. A mixed-green salad, rustic Italian bread and raspberry sorbet complete the menu.
