                         BUTTER------------------
      1/4   c            Unsalted butter
                         -- at room temperature
    3       tb           Chopped fresh cilantro
    1 1/2   tb           Fresh lime or lemon juice
    1       t            Grated lime or lemon zest
      1/4   ts           Salt
    1       pn           Freshly ground pepper
                         -----FOR THE FISH-----
    2       lb           Red snapper fillets
                         -(skinless)
                         -- cut into 4 equal pieces
                         -- about 1 thick
                         Vegetable oil
                         Salt
                         Freshly ground pepper
 
   Combine the butter, cilantro, lemon or lime juice and
   zest, salt and pepper in a bowl and beat by hand with
   a wooden spoon. Shape into a rough log about 2 inches
   long and 1 inch in diameter, wrap in plastic wrap and
   chill until firm. Prepare a fire in the grill.
   Position the oiled rack 4-6 inches above the fire. Rub
   the fish lightly with oil and sprinkle to taste with
   salt and pepper. Arrange the fish on the grill. Cook,
   turning once, about 10 minutes; the fish is done when
   it turns from translucent to opaque throughout. Remove
   to a warmed platter or plates. Cut the cilantro butter
   into 4 equal slices and top each fillet with a slice.
