Red Snapper with Cilantro, Garlic and Lime
6 (6- to 8-ounce) red snapper fillets (1/2 inch thick) with skin
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated fresh lime zest
Accompaniment: lime wedges
Preheat broiler and lightly oil a shallow baking pan (1 inch deep).
Pat fish dry, then arrange, skin sides up, in 1 layer in baking pan. Brush both sides of fish with 3 tablespoons oil total and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Toss together cilantro, garlic, and zest in a small bowl.
Broil fish 6 inches from heat, without turning over, until just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer fish, skin sides up, with a metal spatula to a platter, then sprinkle with cilantro mixture and drizzle with remaining 3 tablespoons oil.
