How to Make It

Step 1    Cook the fish:

Pick your favorite flavor combination (Asian, Mediterranean or Caribbean, at left).

Step 2    Cook the fish:

Choose one of the flavor combinations and chop all of the ingredients except the oil together with a large pinch of salt. Transfer the paste to a small bowl and stir in the oil. Make 5 parallel 3-inch-long slashes on each side of the snapper, slicing almost through to the bone. Lightly season the fish with salt and fill the slashes with the paste. Rub the fish all over with canola oil.

Step 3    Cook the fish:

Light a grill and oil a grill basket that's large enough to hold the fish. Set the fish in the basket and grill over moderate heat, turning once, until the flesh just flakes with a fork, about 20 minutes. Carefully remove the fish from the basket and transfer to a platter. Using 2 forks, lift the fillets off the bones and serve.

Suggested Pairing

A bright, citrusy Sauvignon Blanc.
