Delicious Lime & Chilli Roasted Snapper

If you are a seafood fan, this is a must try recipe! It’s simple.delicious and healthy too.


Serves 4

4 x 500g plate-sized snapper fish,cleaned

2cm piece fresh ginger (10g)

2 cloves ginger, sliced thinly

8 fresh kaffir lime leaves

1 fresh long red chilli,sliced thinly

2 tbs peanut oil

 1 cup loosely packed fresh coriander leaves

Chilli Lime Dressing

1/3 cup (80ml) sweet chilli sauce

1/4 cup (60ml) fish sauce

1/4 cup (6oml) lime juice

2 tsp peanut oil


1. Preheat oven to 240C /220 C fan-forced.

2. Rinse fish inside and out under cold water,pat dry with adsorbent paper.

3. Divide ginger,garlic,lime leaves and chilli among fish cavities; rub fish all over with oil.

4. Place fish in 2 shallow oiled baking dishes; roast,uncovered,about 15 minutes or until cooked through.

5. Meanwhile, place ingredients for chilli lime dressing in screw-top jar; shake well.

6. Drizzle fish with dressing, sprinkle with coriander. Serve with asian greens and steamed rice.


Depending on your serve, adjust the ingredients accordingly and to your taste. I love garlic so I put 2 cloves in one fish instead of dividing it into 4 fish. When using kaffir lime leaves whole,rub them first between your fingers to open the cells in the leaf tissue and release their vivid flavour.
