personal chef fort lauderdale

Fish has always been one of the few types of food that many people shy away from in the kitchen, assuming that its delicate texture makes it difficult to properly prepare. However, this could not be further from the truth, and that will be proven after you try out this delicious red snapper recipe. This white fish features a mild yet appealing flavor, and can be prepared in a variety of different ways.
For this recipe we will be taking our flavorful red snapper and frying it in hot butter before braising it in a creamy butter lemon sauce. The combination of crispy fish and smooth butter creates a depth of flavors and textures that make this dish simply to die for. Plated over fresh spring greens and drizzled with that buttery lemon sauce, this red snapper recipe is not one that you want to miss out on.

Red Snapper with Butter Lemon Sauce Recipe


  • 2-3 red snapper fillets
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ lemon
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh parsley


  1. Heat a cast iron skillet to medium and add the butter. 
  2. Once the butter has completely melted, season both sides of the snapper with salt and pepper before adding it to the pan.
  3. Let the fish cook for around 3 minutes, or until slightly brown and crispy on the bottom side, then flip the fish over.
  4. Add in the cooking wine, heavy cream, garlic, and lemon juice. Allow the fish to braise for a couple more minutes, then remove from the pan.
  5. Add chopped parsley to the sauce and lower the heat to medium-low. 
  6. Let the sauce continue cooking until it has reduced quite a bit, becoming much thicker and creamier.
  7. Serve the fish over a plate of greens and drizzle the butter lemon sauce right over top of it.

Insulin resistance is a warning flag for diabetes and can make weight loss extremely difficult even for individuals who shouldn’t have a problem dropping pounds.
