This recipe is a bit involved but good. If you don't have the cedar planks just placing the fillets on a baking sheet with non-stick foil works fine.
8 oz Cold butter, cubed
1/2 tsp Chopped fresh thyme
Zest from 2 limes
Juice of 2 Lemons
Zest of 2 Oranges
Salt and pepper
Drizzle of olive oil
4 Red snapper fillets (skinned)
8 oz Capicola Ham (finely chopped)
1/4 c white wine
Zest of 2 Lemons
2 Untreated cedar planks
1/4 c Heavy cream
1 1/4 c Fine dried bread crumbs
1 Bay leaf
1 T olive oil
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a saucepan, combine the wine, lemon juice, peppercorns, bay leaf and thyme. Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce by half, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the cream and bring the liquid back to a boil and reduce by half, about 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in the butter, a cube at a time, until all the butter is incorporated. Season the sauce with salt and pepper.
Strain the sauce through a fine mesh strainer and keep warm. Bring a small pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch the zest for 1 minute. Remove the zest from the water and shock in an ice bath. Remove the zest from the ice bath and pat dry.
In a small saute pan, over medium heat, cook the Capicola ham until crispy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and turn into a mixing bowl. Add the blanched zest, bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil.
Season with Creole seasoning. Mix well. Season the fillets with Creole seasoning. Rub the top of each cedar plank with olive oil. Place each fillet on a plank. Sprinkle the crust over each fillet. Place the planks on a sheet pan and place in the oven.
Bake the fillets for 12 to 15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the fish is flaky. Serve the planks with a drizzle of lemon butter sauce.
