Mexican Fish with Coriander Recipe

Serves/Makes: 6 - 8


  • 3 pounds red snapper (striped bass, flounder, or any firm white-fleshed fish) fillets
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
  • 3 canned jalapeno chilies, rinsed, seeded, and chopped
How to cook Mexican Fish with Coriander:
  • Season the fish fillets with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the lemon juice.
  • Heat 4 tablespoons of the oil in a skillet and saute the onion until it is soft.
  • Lightly oil the surface of a shallow ovenproof casserole large enough to hold the fish comfortably, in more than one layer if necessary.
  • Arrange the fish fillets, with any liquid they may have yielded, in the casserole, cover with the onion and the oil, and sprinkle with the coriander and chilies.
  • Drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of oil. Bake in a preheated moderate 350°F(180(C) oven for 20 minutes, or until the fish has lost its translucent look.
