    I use this one a lot and it is simple,
    1/4 cup of Italtian dressing
    2 tbs soy sauce
    1 tsp lemon juice
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    one lemon sliced about 1/8th-1/4" thick
    marinade the fish for about 30 min
    place in a baking dish and place the sliced lemon over the fish cover with foil and bake as usual, depending on thickness and amout of fillets times very greatly. I bake mine a 400 usually.

    When it starts to flake easily with a fork. I would say usually about 20 min, if they are thin fillets check them sooner. I usually just slide mine out and kind of pull on the flesh with a fork, if it flakes its done

    OK that works, these arent that thick, just long and wide. They are probably like...I guess maybe 1/4 inch thick? I dunno??

    I can't wait to chow down

    I'd for sure check them at about 10 min and then keep an eye on them afterwards, let me know what you think

    Very good, VERY good. I believe I will try this with some other fish (Mahi, Grouper). Thank you. It Tastes very good and does NOT take away the flavor of the fish.

    Glad you liked it, this is the way I usually fix mahi myself, figured it would work well with the snapper also

    Snapperhunter, as a rule of thumb, fish should be cooked ten minutes per inch of thickness. Cooking method seems to be irrelevant to this general rule.

    Just remember that the rule is based on the measuring the thickest part of the fish.
