How does Yellowtail compare to other Snapper for taste?
Yellowtail Snapper is a beautiful fish with the majority of its body being a blush olive tone and a striking yellow band that extends from the tip of its snout to its forked tail. Its meat is known as almost a delicacy being gentle yet firm while also flaky with a delicate light flavor. In comparison, it’s very similar to Red Snapper when it comes to taste, however, Yellowtail is much milder to the palette than red and unable to be cooked as long due to its lower oil content.
Our favorite Yellowtail Snapper recipe
Yellowtail snapper is extremely versatile in its flavor combination abilities but our favorite recipe is Stuffed Whole Roasted Yellowtail Snapper. For this recipe, you want to begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees and then score the skin of each fish with 3 diagonal cuts. Next, you’ll want to begin your seasoning by rubbing the inside of each fish with olive oil, then drizzling with lemon juice, and finish with a sprinkling of salt and pepper. After seasoning, it’s time to lay the fish on a baking sheet, place onion, fennel, rosemary sprigs, and oregano sprigs inside each, and roast for around 30 minutes.
Another delicious recipe that is as simple as can be is Crumb-Coated Yellowtail Snapper. This dish simply adds a bread crumb layer with cheese and lemon-pepper seasoning to your fish. To begin, in a small bowl you’ll want to combine your bread crumbs, cheese, lemon pepper, and salt. You then add your Yellowtail fillets, flipping them over in order to coat each side. Then in a skillet coated with oil cook the fillets in batches for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
