Baked Snapper Fillet - fish recipe from Jamie Oliver

I picked this up from Jamie Oliver: Naked Chef and found that I have been using several adaptions of this recipe in my everyday cooking of fish lately...because it is really easy and darn flavorful. Now, ranked side-by-side with Steamed Fish in "Quick & Easy" category is Baked Fish!


  • 1snapper fillet
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon
  • a little butter
  • Dash of dried oregano
  • Pinch sea salt, black pepper taste

1. Place fillets (pat dry) on parchment paper. Rub salt and pepper on the fillets
2. Rub some butter on the aluminum foil, and place some onions on the foil. Then place fish on top of the onions
3. Cover with remaining onion, herbs and bay leaves
4. Drizzle olive oil, lemon juice over the fish and add remaining butter. Fold and seal fish with aluminum foil
5. Place on tray and bake in a preheated 375F(190C) oven for approximately 8-10mins (~8 minutes per pound). Remove from the oven and allow to stand for 3-4mins without opening the bag.

Thanks to Jamie Oliver's easy cooking and there I have it for Bookmarked Recipes - Ruth's Kitchen Experiments. I never knew baked fish can be so flavorful and so easy to prepare. Now I have two killer recipes for fish - Chinese Steamed Fish and the Western Baked Fish!
