Easy to make! Can be scaled up to serve a large group. Adapted from Country LIving magazine, this is a typical recipe for fish from Greece.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Lightly oil a shallow roasting pan.
  3. With sharp knife, make 4 cuts through skin of each fish. Place snapper in oiled pan. Drizzle, inside and out, with lemon juice, oil, and wine. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake seasoned fish until cooked through, about 25 minutes total, or 10 minutes per each inch thickness.
  5. To serve, transfer fish to serving platter. Garnish with thyme, if desired. Serve immediately.

I also made these using salmon fillets, so delicious! I used fresh ground black pepper and drizzled more lemon juice on top of the salmon after cooking, thanks Shar!

Sharon, I can't use the stars because I substituted salmon fillets for the red snapper. The fish seemed to be lacking in flavor, I think maybe I should have marinated it for several hours. Or maybe it was the wine I used which was dry sherry, hubby said he would have liked it better with chardonnay. Thank you for posting Sharon, made for ZWT, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.
