Scarlet Snapper (2 fillets, 6 – 8 ounces each)

Scarlet Snapper is a species of snapper fish that is found in the Indo-Pacific region. Its scientific name is Lutjanus erythropterus, and it is known for its bright red coloration and distinctive black spot located near its pectoral fin. The scarlet snapper has a slender and elongated body with a pointed head and a concave snout. Its scales are relatively large, and its fins are long and pointed.

Scarlet snapper is also commonly used as an ingredient in Southeast Asian cuisine, where it is known as “ikan merah”. It has a mild, sweet flavor and firm texture that makes it suitable for a wide range of cooking methods, including grilling, baking, and frying.

In terms of nutrition, scarlet snapper is a good source of high-quality protein, vitamins, and minerals. It is low in fat and high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining a healthy heart and brain.

Cooking Instructions

Bake – Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a large baking pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes until snapper is cooked thoroughly. The best way to check for doneness is to use a fork to gently prick the fish, and if it flakes easily, it’s ready.
