Our favorite Vermilion Snapper recipe
Vermilion Snapper is best compared as a smaller cousin to red snapper, at least when it comes to the kitchen and the various cooking methods most suited to the product. It gives rise to a mild, slightly sweet flavor that can be fitting for a multitude of recipes. For example, steamed snapper with ginger, lime, and cilantro can be prepared in 3 easy steps for anyone to enjoy. The first step calls for the combining of cilantro, lime juice, clam juice, green onion, fresh ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and fish sauce to create your blend. Next, you want to start preparing your fish by placing a steamer rack or basket in a pot of boiling water and adding a glass pie dish on top, preferably one that’s 9-inches in diameter. Placing your fresh fish in the pie dish, you will pour a layer of cilantro sauce, as well as a sprinkle of both salt and pepper, over it. Lastly, you’ll cover and allow to cook for approximately 6 minutes and finish with a garnish of cilantro and ground ginger.
