For the Jose Cuervo Tequila Lime Butter Sauce


In a bowl, combine the softened butter, lime zest, tequila, fresh lime juice and chopped cilantro.

Mix the ingredients until well combined and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Transfer the tequila lime butter onto a sheet of plastic wrap and shape it into a log or roll.

Wrap the plastic wrap tightly around the butter, twisting the ends to seal.

Place the butter in the refrigerator to firm up while you begin to prepare the fish.

Preparing the Snapper

Pat the snapper fillets dry with paper towels.

Brush each fillet with olive oil and season both sides with salt and pepper.

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and brush the grill grates with olive oil to prevent sticking.

Grilling the Snapper

Place the snapper fillets on the grill, skin-side down.

Grill for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the flesh is cooked through and has distinct grill marks. The skin should be crispy.


Remove the fillets from the grill and transfer to a serving platter

Top each fillet with a slice of Jose Cuervo Tequila Lime Butter allow it it to melt and coat the fish.

Garnish with lime wedges and fresh cilantro
