Grilled Red Snapper with Wasabi Avocado Sauce

November 14, 2011

One benefit to living on the coast in Florida, aside from the beaches, the warm weather, fresh citrus and giant flying cockroaches you can saddle up and ride to work.... is the access to fresh fish.  In this recipe I grill up some fresh red snapper and top with a tasty wasabi and avocado sauce.

Red snapper is a great fish for grilling.  Its firm, mild white flesh can be grilled with the skin on, which keeps it from falling apart when cooking.

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Yields: 2 Servings


1 lb fresh red snapper filet, skin still on one side, about 1 inch thick

salt and fresh ground pepper for fish

1 avocado

1 tsp Wasabi powder (more or less to your taste)

1 tbsp lime juice (I used key limes, cause I had 'em handy, but they're more bitter)

1/8 tsp ground white pepper

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp olive oil


1Preheat the grill to medium with an indirect grilling area (not directly over the flame or coals)

2Place the fish on a well oiled disposable grill liner or grill basket.  Place on the grill and close the lid.

3Cook for about 8 and check to see if it is done.

4While fish is cooking, puree all other ingredients using a blender or  food processor.

5Remove snapper from the grill, add sauce to the top of the fish and serve.
