Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Season the snappers with the salt and pepper. Place the tomato slices on the bottom of a large roasting pan in 2 columns of 4 tomato slices. Place 6 sprigs of rosemary across the each of the 2 rows of tomatoes. Lay the fish on top of the tomato slices, and divide the thyme leaves, orange zest and garlic cloves evenly over the tops of the 2 fish. Pour the wine and lemon juice around the fish, and drizzle each fish with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Place the fish in the oven and roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and add another tablespoon of the olive oil to each of the fish. Return to the oven and continue to cook until well caramelized, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the fish from the oven and drizzle with the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil.

  • Serve immediately, with the pan drippings drizzled over the top of the fish.
