Pan Fried Snapper

RED SNAPPER IN A SNAP

You can make this in less time than it takes the TV weatherman to lie to you about tomorrow's forecast. And, unlike the weather report, the results are highly reliable.

There are dozens of species in the snapper family, but only one true red snapper. It's a common reef fish in the Gulf and Caribbean and ranges far up the east coast of the U.S., delighting seafood lovers as far north as Baahhstan. The flesh is light and sweet, which makes the red snapper ideal for minimal preparation or to serve with a light citrus sauce like this one.

Buy your snapper from a reputable source: There are a lot of other red fish like Pacific rock fish that are often sold as the coveted "red snapper." The real thing will have metallic pink or bright red skin. When you buy them at Lighthouse Seafood, you know for sure that they're real red snapper and you also know they're fresh.
