"Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing it is not fish they are after."

The refrigerator light goes on...

Red snapper is such a great meal. This is a very lean fish that takes almost no time to cook and has a clean, fresh flavor. I do love simple grilled fresh fish with a bit of salt and pepper and lemon or lime but the Roasted Garlic Tartar Sauce gives this a twist that really complements the taste of the fish.

2 4 ounce filets red snapper
1/8 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper
spray grapeseed or olive oil
2 Tbsp Garlic Tartar Sauce

Heat the grill to hot or place a large grill pan in the oven at 375°F.

While the grill (or oven) is heating rinse the snapper filets and pat dry. Place on a cutting board skin side up and score the skin about 1/2 inch apart. Do not cut more than just through the skin.

Lightly sprinkle the salt and pepper over the scored fish.

When the grill (or oven) is hot spray the grill (or grill pan) lightly with oil. Place the fish on the grill skin side down and cook for about 5 minutes. Turn and cook for another 2 - 3.

Serve over Purple Potato Salad and top with 1 tablespoon of tartar sauce per serving.
