Red Snapper



I love fish and I can eat fish everyday. One of my favorites is the red snapper. I can eat red snapper whatever way it is cooked: grilled, fried, soup, "paksiw", baked... or whatever....

Red Snapper is one of the most popular of all white fish. It is low in saturated fat and sodium and is a very good source of protein. Red Snapper can reach weights of up to 35 pounds, but most fish sold are well under that size. Red Snapper has a great, firm texture and a sweet, nutty flavor that lends itself very well to everything from hot chilies to subtle herbs. And, of course, Red Snapper is excellent for grilling.

TIP: When buying whole Red Snapper look for clear, red eyes, bright red skin that fades towards the belly. If you are looking for fillets try to buy it with the skin on.
