Continental Baked Fish Recipe / Lemon & Garlic Baked Fish Recipe / Baked Snapper Recipe



One of my viewer asked me to post a whole baked fish recipe for quite a long time. I was waiting these long to get my hands on a beautiful fish to make this one. Luckily few days back hubby got couple of beautiful looking snapper fish and i decided to try out this recipe. I made one fish as a continental style and one as a typical indian style, which i will share soon..


I loved this fish more than the indian one..I had it all by itself. It was clean and very fresh tasting. I taste the real flaky juicy flesh of the fish and it was yum..


I hope you will love this as much as i did, and let me know how it turned out for you..

  2. @SumiI didn't debone it. But you can debone so it will be easy when you are serving.

  6. It was such a kick ass recipe. Mint lemon and fish combinations were fantastic. Especially once it's done you flake the fish and eat it with the sauce. Heavenly. N healthy. We loved it.
    P.s- can you post more continental recipes like chicken parmigiana or roasted chicken with jus etc
