The huge popularity of the Red Snapper in American cuisine is easy to understand: they look beautiful, have wonderful flavor, and can be prepared in almost any cooking method. These tropical or semitropical fish travel in Eastern offshore waters and the Gulf of Mexico ranging as far north as Virginia- ours are landed off the coast of Florida. Lean in fat but moist, they have a medium texture and delicate sweet flavor. Their skin crisps up nicely as well. Prepare whole fish stuffed and baked or on the grill, or steam the fillets. Whole Fish are Approximately 5 Lbs each, Scaled and Gutted. Two Fillets are Approximately 2-3 Lbs, Net. Wild Caught. US.
