The brilliantly colored Red Grouper is a lean, moist fish with a distinctive yet mild flavor, large flakes and a firm texture, although not as firm as other types of grouper. If you like Sea Bass or Halibut, this is a good choice for you.
Red Grouper, like a number of other Grouper species, begin life as females, with some later transforming into males.
Most lovers of Red Grouper grill or fry it. You may also poach, steam, bake, broil or sauté it, but keep the spice to a minimum since its flavor is a bit milder than other types of Grouper. It’s also excellent in soups or chowders.
Red Grouper is a deliciously good source of Vitamins B6 and B12, Phosphorus, Potassium, and Selenium and Omega-3.
