 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4  C.            bottled clam juice
      1/4  C.            dry white wine
      1/2  C.            heavy cream
    2      Fillets       red snapper (about 6 oz. each)
                         salt
    2      Tbsp.         unsalted butter
    2      Tsp.          green peppercorns
                         packed in brine or vinegar
                         drained and rinsed
 
 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small saucepan combine the
 clam juice and white wine. Boil over high heat until reduced
 to 1/4 cup, about 5 minutes. Add the cream and continue to
 boil, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is reduced to 1/3
 cup, about 10 minutes. Keep warm over low heat. Meanwhile,
 butter 2 pieces of foil large enough to wrap each fillet.
 Place the fillets on the buttered foil, sprinkle lightly with
 salt and dot the fillets with butter. Fold to seal the foil
 and place the packets on a baking sheet. Bake in the middle of
 the oven for 12 minutes. Just before serving, add the green
 peppercorns to the sauce. Heat briefly to warm through.
 Remove snapper from foil and place on warm plates. Pour the
 sauce over the fish and serve hot.
