The Meal:

Square 1682 Executive Chef Mackenson Horebe shares his recipe for Red Snapper with corn and tomato salad


1 filet red snapper, skin on

1 c corn

1 c sliced grape tomato

1 ea diced avocado

4 tbsp lemon juice

8 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp chopped parsley

Sea salt to taste

Honey to taste

Method: The Salmon

Add olive oil to a hot sauté pan

Chef Tip: Always heat your pan first and then add the oil. That opens the pores of the pan so nothing sticks

Score your red snapper, putting a couple of diagonal slits in the skin so it won't constrict with heat

Season the red snapper with sea salt

Add snapper to the pan, skin side down (cook approx.. 2 minutes on each side)

Chef Tip: Press the fish down with your fingers or a spoon so it will get nice and crispy

Chef Tip: Start cooking your snapper on high heat and then move it down to medium

Flip the fish and sear other side for another 2 minutes

Chef Tip: You're looking for a light golden brown color around the edges. That's a sign it's ready to flip

Method: The Salad

Chef Tip: Prepare your salad while the snapper is cooking

In a mixing bowl add lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, corn, avocado, and tomato and sea salt

Chef Tip: Dice your avocado while it's still in the skin. Cut your avocado in half, remove the pit and make diagonal cuts in the flesh of the fruit. That way it can be easily scooped out, already diced.

Method: Honey & Lemon Vinaigrette

Mix 2 parts olive oil to 1 part lemon juice and drizzle in a little honey to taste

Place snapper on a serving dish, spoon the tomato and corn salad on top of snapper and drizzle extra vinaigrette on top of dish

The Deal:

Through October 3rd, if you dine at Square 1682 and mention you saw this feature on 6abc, they will give you a free dessert with your entree purchase-the chef's brand new house-made water ice with soft pretzel knots.
