Citrus Pan Fried Snapper

Citrus Pan Fried Snapper
Serves 2 Prep Time 15 minutes Cook Time 7-8 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Zest from ½ lemon
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tsp runny honey
  • 2 x 150g snapper fillets - skin off
  • Handful fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1 x 160g bag Wattie's SteamFresh Broccoli, Carrots and Baby Peas

Method

  1. Place olive oil, lemon zest and juice, orange juice and honey into a dish. Add the snapper fillets and turn the fish through the marinade. Marinate in the fridge for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan. Add the fish fillets, reserving the marinade.
  3. Cook the fish for 7-8 minutes over a medium heat, turning once during cooking. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of the fish fillets.
  4. Transfer the fish to individual plates. Pour the reserved marinade into the pan. Bring to the boil and allow to reduce a little before pouring over the fish. Sprinkle over chopped parsley before serving with Wattie’s SteamFresh Vege Mixes.

Tips

As an alternative to snapper use tarakihi fillets or salmon fillets – cook times will vary depending on the type of fish and thickness of the fillets.
