Red Snapper Dinner
Red Snapper Seafood Dinner
Red Snapper is a nutty flavored and sweet white fish. You really have to make sure you are getting the real Red Snapper fish which has a firm texture and is delicious and so easy to prepare.
While living on the East Coast I was introduced to Red Snapper, which is hard to find in some other regions. preparing it is as easy as it can be and well worth the price, especially if you are a seafood lover.
You would broil it just as you would most fish items, the the texture sets it above the other fish that is readily available.
You would want to purchase it with the skin on the fillets or whole, the skin has thin red lines on it
Lets just get this Red Snapper ready to eat. Serve with your favorite side dishes and you are set to enjoy.
- 2 tbsp Dill, fresh or dried
- 1 tsp Coriander, ground
- 1 tsp Rosemary, ground
- 1 tsp Cummin, ground
- 2 pats Butter, each fillet
- 1/2 lemon, juice
- 2 tbls olive oil
- 1 tsp coarse salt, optional
- 1 tsp black pepper, optional
- 4 oz Red Snapper, per person
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- Wash fillets
- Rub entire fillets with olive oil
- Mix dry ingredients and rub onto both sides of fillets
- Add butter on top of red snapper. (Optional)
- Add bread crumbs on top of snapper fillets.
- Pour lemon juice into bottom of pan before putting the red snapper under broiler. Do not wet bread crumbs
- Place under broiler for approximately 10 min, depending on thickness of fillets.
Cook your fillets, skin side down.
Your fish should flake apart when tested with a fork and look opaque.
Do not use the same utensils to plate your fish, that you used when the fish was raw.
If using smaller pieces check red snapper before the ten minutes are up.

Freshness and timing
Timing of broiled Snapper
When cooking any type of seafood the timing is very important. You will want to have all of your side dishes prepared and ready to plate. Most seafood will not take but a few minutes to cook, which means everything else has to be ready and kept warm if necessary.
You really don't want to have to keep fish or most sea foods warm because it will continue to cook and will be over cooked. Make sure you plan ahead so that everything is ready at the same time so you will enjoy a delicious meal.
Sea foods that you are waiting to cook should be kept in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook it. When purchasing your seafood there should be a vague ocean scent. If you come upon a seafood the has a strong pungent smell, leave it in the store, do not purchase it.
The flesh of the fish should be somewhat translucent and white and might have a pale pink tint.
Always ask when the seafood was delivered into the store, that will give a hint as to whether your seafood is fresh or not. I have often requested fish from the freezer if it comes in frozen.
You really don't know how long it has been in the showcase on ice and if temperature has been stable, due to the frequent opening and closing of the display case.
