Total Time:


24 to 28 ounces red snapper fillets, skinned
4 tablespoons sesame seeds
kosher salt, to taste
freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons grass-fed butter, ghee, extra virgin Coconut Oil, or bacon fat


1. Lightly dust one side of the snapper fillets with kosher salt then black pepper to your taste. Lay the seasoned side of each fillet on the bed of sesame seeds, pressing down to ensure an even coating. Season the up-facing side of the snapper with salt and pepper then flip over in the sesame seeds. Repeat with remaining fillets.

2. Melt 2 tablespoons of cooking fat in a large frying pan. Over medium/high heat, lay the sesame seed coated snappers on the pan. Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes or until the seeds take on a golden color.

3. Let the fish rest for a few minutes then serve.
