Coconut Rice and Sauteed Snapper Fillet With Mojo Picón Sauce

This healthy entree features a tangy sauce from the Canary Islands.

Sauteed Snapper Fillet

En español | Ingredients:

4 6-ounce snapper fillets*

2 tbsp canola oil

Salt and pepper

Preparation:

Pat fish fillet dry and season with salt and pepper.

In a large non-stick skillet heat oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking and cook fish about 3 minutes, or until golden brown.

Turn fish over and cook 2 minutes more, or until just cooked through.

*The mild, slightly sweet flavor and firm yet tender texture of most white fish fillets take well to light seasoning and a quick sauté. Alternatives include sole, flounder, tilapia, fresh cod, and red snapper
