Jazz up your fish: Mustard-Grilled Red Snapper

Red snapper is a firm, mildly flavored, white-fleshed fish that can be prepared in a wide variety of dishes; from a very simple dish to a gourmet meal. My favorite way to prepare red snapper is grilled with a spicy Dijon mustard sauce. Here’s what I do:


1/3 Cup Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 Red Snapper filets (6 to 8 ounces each)


Heat grill to medium-high for direct grilling.

Meanwhile combine mustard, vinegar and red pepper in small glass bowl and whisk well. Coat both sides of fish thoroughly with mustard mixture.

Grill fish over direct heat on a covered grill over medium-high heat. Grill approximately 5 minutes and one side and then turn and grill an additional 4 to 5 minutes on the other side or until fish flakes easily when tested with fork. Garnish with parsley sprigs and serve.
