Citrus Grilled Snapper with Roasted Pineapple
- Serves: 4
- Complexity: easy
- 1 - 3lb red snapper filet
- 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 T grated ginger
- 2 lemons
- 1 lime
- 2 - 3 chopped green onions
- grated orange rind
- 1 pineapple - cored and cut into rings
Heat a charcoal or gas grill for indirect cooking.
Make several shallow slashes in the body of the snapper using a very sharp knife - this will keep the fish from curling + let's the seasoning penetrate the fish
Place the fish on a piece of tin foil - large enough to make a package or in a shallow disposable roasting pan
Combine soy sauce, orange juice and ginger, then drizzle over fish. Turn fish over and drizzle remaining soy sauce mixture.
Slice lime and 1 lemon into rounds and place over fish.
Cut other lemon in half and place in package or pan to roast.
Cover fish with foil to make a package or cover disposable pan with foil.
Grill over indirect heat covered for 10 - 15 minutes or until fish is opaque and flaky.
Squeeze roasted lemons over fish before serving.
Cook pineapple rings directly on grill (indirect heat side) for about a minute on each side until there are char marks but the pineapple is still firm.
Remove and serve along side the fish.
