The Pacific Red Snapper is also marketed on the West Coast as Rock Cod, Red Snapper, Pacific Ocean Perch, and Rockfish. Pacific Snappers are caught in a year-round fishery along the Pacific Coast from California to Alaska using hook-and-line.
The firm, mildly flavored, white-fleshed snapper can be prepared very simply or as a gourmet meal. You can easily include this light, but nutritious form of protein more than once in your weekly meal plan without tiring of it. It is available in your local markets throughout the year. Red Snapper can be pan seared, baked , broiled, blackened, crumb-coated or simply sushi-raw (Tsukuri).
Pacific Snapper is listed as “Good Alternative” on the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s “Seafood Watch” list.
Most fish are high in protein, low in saturated fat and a unique source of extremely beneficial compounds called omega-3 essential fatty acids. Snapper is no exception. The Pacific Red Snapper is a very good source of protein, and a food able to provide almost 15% of our daily value for omega-3 fatty acids in one 4-ounce serving.
Each bag contains 2 fillets averaging 6-8 ounces each.
