Foil Baked Snapper with White Wine Sauce

Cooking food in foil is a traditional outdoor method that helps infuse flavours much more than other methods. This recipe foil wraps salmon to infuse it with lemon, garlic and thyme.

This method can be used on a wide range of outdoor cooking equipment from grills and smokers, to even a campfire.

Serve the salmon with a fresh salad and plenty of crusty bread to sop up all of the cooking juices. And, don’t forget a glass of wine.

Ingredients

Foil Baked Snapper

1 whole snapper

1 lemon, thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

50g (1/4 cup) salted butter

small bunch chives, thinly sliced

drizzle of olive oil

White Wine Sauce

1 tablespoon of butter

1 clove garlic, finely diced

2 spring onions, sliced

1 teaspoon dried tarragon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1/4 cup white wine

1 lemon, juiced

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley

Equipment

large piece of foil

grill

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat the grill for medium-high heat.

  2. Lay the snapper on a large piece of foil. Insert 2/3 of the lemon slices, garlic, chopped thyme and butter into the cavity of the fish.

  3. Cut 5 large slices into each side of the snapper. Stuff the remaining third of the garlic and thyme into the slices. Top the fish with the remaining lemon slices and butter. Sprinkle with chives and drizzle with olive oil then wrap the fish tightly in the foil.

  4. Place on the preheated grill and cook for 1 hour.

  5. Unwrapped the salmon and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until it gets a nice browned colour.

  6. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and spring onions and cook until transparent, about 4 minutes. Stir in the tarragon, salt, and pepper.

  7. Increase the heat to medium and stir in the wine and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley. Pour over the snapper.

  8. Simmer for about 1 hour, then uncover and cook for an additional 20 to 30 minutes.

  9. On a platter present the foil baked snapper and drizzle with some of the white wine sauce. Place the remaining white wine sauce in a jug so people can add it on their plate as/if desired.
