1) Preheat the oven to 350F. Coat a 12X8X2-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
2) Wash the red snapper fillets under cold running water. Place them in a 12X8X2-inch baking dish.

3) In a bowl, mix mayonnaise, yoghurt, lime rind, lime juice, tarragon and pepper. Pour the mixture over the red snapper.
