Method for Cooking Chili Lime snapper:
- Preheat Vardaan Cookware’s premium encapsulated frying pan to medium-high heat.
- In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, minced garlic, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper to create the marinade.
- Pat the snapper filets dry with paper towels. Brush both sides of the filets with the marinade, ensuring they are well coated.
- Place the snapper filets in the pan, skin-side down. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Cooking time may vary based on the thickness of the filets.
- While frying, brush the filets with any remaining marinade to infuse extra flavor.
- Once the snapper is cooked through, remove it from the pan and transfer to a serving plate.
- Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with lime wedges on the side for an extra burst of citrus flavor.
- Enjoy your delicious chili lime snapper alongside your favorite side dishes for a zesty and satisfying meal.
