mum made up this recipe the other night with some fresh snapper... have to say it is easily the best tasting fish i've had in years..

first...
get the fillets of fish and make a parcel of tinfoil to wrap them in...
then coat the fish in coconut milk (sorry don't know exact measurements we tend to just throw everything in)...
now add some sweet chilly sauce, and squeeze half a lime over each parcel, then add a handful of fresh coriander over the fish...
sprinkle sufficient amounts of salt and pepper over the fish wrap the parcel up and bake in oven for 7-10 minutes depending on how big parcel is...

the coconut, chilly and lime mix together while cooking and infuse their flavours into the fish, the coriander is a must it really tops it off.

B....E.....A UTIFUL...

if you don't give this recipe a go in your lifetime you are missing out on something real special...

Sounds good Levcat... If you can try to get hold of some vietnamese mint.  Its similar to Coriander but a bit sharper and more aromatic.  I love the stuff and you can use it to replace or even compliment coriander.  A few Garden centres stock it, and its cheap although it needs to be kept war and wet as its sub tropical and dies easily over the summer if it dries out.  Still I've had one alive for more than 2 years, which is also handy unlike coriader which dies pretty quickly.
 
Also try it in a seafood marinara - divine!

Here is a similar but alternative recipe to try. It is also damn fine and comes from a chef that worked in the Onetangi hotel in the mid 1980's. Dish was called Gannet Rock Snapper if my memory is still working.
Again put the fillet in foil etc, but stuff the 'V' of the fillet with diced marinated mussels and a small amount of diced onion. Instead of coconut milk etc as a 'sauce', use about 2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lemon juice and honey mix. Little bit of salt and pepper to taste, coriander on the top, wrap and bake as per the earlier recipe.
For those that don't like Mussels, use half a banana.

And if you want it truly spectacular, wrap the filet in banana leaves before wrapping it in silver paper.
 
Incredible.
 
If the weather plays ball I may be able to give this a go this weekend. Like the sound of hte mussels, or I might just try some fresh cockles instead as they have a more subtle flavour. Mouth's watering just thinking of it.

OK I tried it. Very nice indeed, but I was a little shy on the sweet chili sauce and the coriander. A good change from the fried fish. Thanks Levi.

Just tried your recipe Levcat, and after reading Rank Amateurs comments regarding Vietnamese mint, decided to make up parcels of snapper using fresh Coriander, some using Vietnamese mint, and some using a mixture of both. Served them up with some Uncle Bens 2 minute rice of various flavours, to SWMBO. All were beutifull, but SWMBO preferred, the Coriander, whereas I preferred the mixture of both. Either way an excellent recipe for fresh snapper.

Derek the Chef cooked some snapper fillets in foil the other weekend. He added a couple of slices of swiss cheese. That looked mouth watering!

Tried the recipe last night Levcat, used bananas and no lime juice. The crew thought it was great thanks.ClapHave taken to scaling rather than skinning snapps and find for recipes such as this the fillets slide easily off the tinfoil and don't disintegrate like skinned fillets sometimes do.

So many fish, so little time,

Good thread lads, Thumbs Up good to see some examples of the fish in tin foil, must try a few as we mostly bake in a shallow dish in the microwave sort of minute on each side and so is very quick and easy and above all healthy, no butter or fat fry up...
 
But then again the tin foil lets it all fuse into the fish, etc...

similarly, we make a sauce of coconut milk, sweet chilli sauce, lime juice and zest, and a handful of fresh cilantro (corriander)

we serve this over little prawn and grated kumura cakes
