Best Ways to Cook Snapper

When cooking snapper, it is usually best to go with a method that allows the snapper's skin to become crisp. This will give snapper a snappy texture and flavor while also protecting the meat from drying out. Snapper can be baked, broiled, grilled, or fried into many different types of dishes.

While snapper tastes great on its own or sautéed in butter, snapper fillets are another popular food ingredient used in seafood recipes including soups, pastas, and salads.
