Red Snapper Fish
Salt and Pepper
Onions and Garlic
Start with a fish. Make sure it is scaled, cleaned, and that it has a few deep cuts along the sides. Today we used a lovely red snapper.
Set up a baking dish with plenty of foil. Wash the fish. Put it in the dish.
Get a bunch of fresh basil. Wash it. Get rid of the thick stalks, leaving only the leaves.
Spread some olive oil on one side of the fish. Tuck a lot of basil in each of the cuts. Add salt and pepper.
Turn the fish over. Spread olive oil on the other side and tuck basil in its cuts. Put some more basil where the innards used to be. Add more salt and pepper.
Slice some onions and coarsely chop some garlic. Spread them on the fish and under it. Add some slices of butter.
Wrap the foil around the fish. Ensure that the liquids will not spill.
Meanwhile, you'll have preheated the oven to 250 degrees.
We baked this two-kilogram baby for 40 minutes.
Serve hot and enjoy. You can add a few drops of lime and it will be delicious.
