Red Snapper aka Red Fish is an excellent source of protein, potassium, vitamin B12, and vitamin B6. This tasty fish is found in warm waters in the Gulf and aids in many health benefits such as weight management (high protein density), lowering the risks of cancer and other chronic diseases, also prevents heart disease (plenty of (omega-3) fatty acid), and supports thyroid health.

Let’s Get Rolling

A couple of things about fish and seafood in general… use a lot of salt. Fresh seafood is in need of plenty of salt. I do not like using regular table salt.

You are welcome to do so but you may find yourself using a bit more than you would like. I use sea salt; it works great with seafood (sea salt…seafood) Great pair, right?!

Using sea salt also cuts down on the amount of salt you will use. I always season every layer of my dish and taste test throughout the cooking process. This ensures all my flavors are coming along nicely.

Once the butter has melted take the baking dish out of the oven and set aside to tend to the preparation of the whole Red Snapper.

Preparing your Fish

Take the Red Snapper and season it with sea salt & red pepper. This is a whole fish so you would also season the inside of the fish.

Place the fish season side down into the baking dish then season the other side. Pour your veggies over the fish.

Take your pan and deglaze it with dry white wine, 1 tbsp Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce and pour that over the fish.

In the pan also add about 4 dashes of wine vinegar then sprinkle with the chopped parsley.

Place in the oven and you are done! Cook for about an hour or until the veggies are tender.

Nice Add-Ons

Easy Vegetarian MealsThis healthy fish recipe can be paired with fresh string beans seasoned with salt, fresh ground pepper, garlic powder with slices of onion and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil (toss together).

Spread onto a cookie sheet and bake for about 20 min. at 400 degrees until the beans have shriveled a bit.

Another add-on that’s really quick to make is a simple healthy green salad.

I use the organic spring mix then add cherry tomatoes, red onion, and roasted salted almond slivers.

Toss with a light balsamic vinaigrette and olive oil dressing.

Finale

Red Snapper aids in many health benefits such as weight management (high protein density), lowering the risks of cancer and other chronic diseases, also prevents heart disease (plenty of (omega-3) fatty acid) and supports thyroid health.

Keep in mind fresh seafood is in need of plenty of salt. I would suggest sea salt or kosher salt. Either of those would work better than the regular table salt. Either will make the dish taste a lot more flavorful than table salt.

Easy Vegetarian MealsWatch your spice levels with this dish. You can adjust the seasoning how you like them. Make it your own for you and your loved ones.

I truly hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do. If you happen to try it let me know how it turns out.

  2. My family and I love seafood and I just can’t collect enough recipes, tho it’s tough to compete with my husband’s prowess at the grill! Looking forward to testing your recipe and giving Mr. Grillmeister a run for his money!

    I love the Cajun twist, as well as the inclusion in your content of the many health benefits associated with fish and, specifically, Red Snapper.

    You’ve introduced a satisfactory amount of images, too, tho I would love to see them sized a bit bigger.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your recipes and giving them a taste-test 🙂

    1. I am big on freshwater seafood. It’s really the only seafood I will eat. One thing I really like about this type of fish is it’s GREAT grilled! lol, Thank you for the comment!

  3. Red Snappers are a great source of essential nutrients that the body needs for good metabolism, as you have stated in your introduction. And when one has good metabolism, their weight can properly be manage as they desire. 

    Question please, what is the difference between table salt and sea salt? And why is it best to use sea salt in your opinion? The recipe is simple and to me is what we can find in our local supermarkets or easily online supermarket. These recipes are also healthy, which is good for our health.

    The preparation steps are easy to follow, even when you’re preparing this for the very first time. This shows that you have everyone in mind, not just the experts. I believe everyone preparing this will be salivating even before they are done. Thank you for the easy step by step guidelines to prepare a healthy meal in an easy way.

    1. Hi Augusta! To answer your question on the difference between sea salt and table salt: 

      Sea salt comes directly through the evaporation of seawater and usually is not processed, so it retains trace levels of minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium and other nutrients.

      Table salt is mined from salt deposits. It’s processed to give it a fine texture. This strips table salt of any minerals and additives.

      I am big on non-processed foods. No can goods, no frozen foods. 

      Table salt, in my opinion, adds more sodium than I would like. 

      Thank you so much for your comment. I hope I answered your question. 🙂

  5. Worcestershire sauce is an under-appreciated seasoning I think!  Glad to see it’s part of this recipe. 

    I’m also glad you use the whole fish in this recipe.  While filets are often more convenient, not to mention available, when it comes to red snapper, so much of it is mislabeled you can never be certain you’re getting the right fish. When it’s whole, it’s a lot easier to identify as the real deal. 

    Thanks, this is one I’ll have to try!

  6. I am always on the lookout for new supper ideas, especially fish recipes. I’m not such a fan of chicken and meat and neither are my kids. Seafood always goes down well.

    This recipe looks divine and I am also a fan of sea salt. I never use table salt anymore, apparently sea salt is much healthier. I just know its tastier:)

    Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to make it.

    1. Let me know how you like the end result once you make it. I would love to hear how the kids took to it. Lol

      I found out that sea salt really isn’t healthier just less sodium and it isn’t processed like table salt. Thank you so much for your comment.
