Select the size of your preferred mangrove snapper to see the total price. Although customers of our market may choose to have their fish filleted, the price listed is based on the weight of the whole fish. Mangrove snapper, once filleted, yields around 33% of fish meat. We recommend a pound of whole fish per serving size at the table.
Is Mangrove Snapper better-ordered whole, or filleted?
If you don’t mind paying a bit extra for shipping, and you have skill with the fillet knife, we always recommend ordering the whole mangrove snapper. Ordering the whole fish allows the edible fillet to remain the freshest form once cooked. However, fish larger than 5 pounds will have to be filleted prior to shipping to allow room for the fish to fit within our shipping coolers. If you’re in the Pinellas County, Florida area you can order online and pick up at our market in John’s Pass of Madeira Beach, Florida
How to Fillet a Mangrove Snapper
Similar to Grouper, Snapper and Mangrove Snapper specifically is an easy fish to fillet if you ask any fisherman along Florida’s gulf coast. Starting with the primary cut down the dorsal fin you’ll let your knife run along with the bones on the backside of the fish. From there, cut down the gill-like to the belly of the fish. Peeling the fish open run your knife down to the bone inside the previous cut. The process continues however to help with better visualization of the process, we recommend following our guide on how to fillet a Grouper. Although this tutorial features a Grouper, the overall process is the same for Mangrove snapper.

Best Mangrove (Gray) Snapper Recipe
There are a plethora of delicious ways to cook mangrove snapper aka gray snapper. Among them include one of our deckhand’s favorites; Pineapple Crusted.
Pineapple Crusted Mangrove Snapper
Pineapple is an excellent compliment for the lean, firm texture of mangrove snapper. For this recipe, start by de-boning the fish and removing the skin. Following this, coat the product in olive oil and season with salt and pepper or one of our personal seasoning options.
Prepare the pineapple by chopping it into relatively small chunks and set this aside.
Next up, heat some lemon juice and a bit of vinegar with a pinch of sugar in a skillet. Bring the pan to a hot temperature via the medium heat setting. Once the mixture starts to bubble you’ll know it’s hot enough to add the snapper. Add the fish along with a bit of coconut milk and chopped onions (peppers too if you’d like). In addition, you’ll want to go ahead and dump the cut pineapple into the pan and cook for eight to twelve minutes or until your desired texture is reached. We generally prefer our fish closer to undercooked than over, however, if you do not fully cook the fish, food-borne illnesses can arise.
Mangrove Snapper alternatives
As the supplier of the fish (Mangrove Snapper included) we sell, it’s hard to forecast exactly what we will have coming in from the next offload. Hence, we won’t always have Mangrove Snapper ready for shipment. If you see options above under “size”, we have some in stock. When stock is low however we might only have very large fish available for purchase.
