Chef Eric Ripert quick-bakes snapper with a little butter so it's silky and serves it with pan-seared tomatillos and a fresh salsa. Slideshows: Recipes for Red Snapper

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 400°. In a bowl, mix the peppers, jalapeño, olive oil, onion, lime juice and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2    

Butter a ceramic baking dish. Season the fish with salt and white pepper and arrange the fillets in the dish, skin side down. Scatter the 2 tablespoons of cubed butter around the fish and add 1/2 cup of water. Bake the fish for about 15 minutes, until just cooked.

Step 3    

Heat a cast-iron skillet. In a bowl, toss the tomatillos with the canola oil and season with salt and white pepper. Arrange the tomatillos in the skillet and cook over high heat, turning once, until charred, 2 minutes.

Step 4    

Transfer the fish to plates, top with the tomatillos and salsa and serve.
