Although there are hundreds of snapper species, the Caribbean red snapper is one of the most beloved. This reef snapper boasts a fine, juicy texture and sweet flavor to delight your taste buds. Their tasty skin holds the delicate texture together and seals in flavor. Best of all, you can choose exactly how you would like your fish cleaned: head on or head off and split. Although it may require a little extra love to keep it from falling apart on the grill, you can choose to use a basket for flipping or lifting above the flame. The possibilities of red snapper are limitless, but it tastes especially great when stuffed, in soups, or served over your favorite rice.
