Lemon Tarragon Snapper with Wilted Spinach

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons low sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 clove garlic pressed
  • 2 tablespoons dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 6 oz snapper fillets
  • 2 cups baby spinach


  • Preheat oven broiler.
  • In a small bowl, combine broth with lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, tarragon, salt, pepper, and olive oil.
  • Arrange snapper fillets on a lightly oiled baking pan and brush generously with lemon/herb mixture (or pour it evenly over the top); broil until fillets are opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Place 1/2 cup of spinach on each dinner plate and top with a snapper fillet, spooning any remaining sauce over the top (the heat will wilt the spinach perfectly!)
  • Serve immediately.
