The term Red Snapper has been used to describe almost any fish that is red. There is also much other fish marketed as “Snapper.” Red Snapper has large dog-like teeth, which gives it the “snapper” name. It is found from North Carolina along the coast of the United States through Texas and to the Campeche Bank off Mexico.
Red Snapper has pinkish meat that is lean, moist and sweet with a mild although distinctive flavor. It should be cooked with the skin on to help keep in moisture.
