Expert Tips

Of the 250 species of snapper, red snapper is the best known. This saltwater fish, named for its color, has firm white flesh and very little fat.

Serve sliced fresh fennel and baby carrots, quickly sautéed with garlic and oregano, with this fish. A mixed-green salad, rustic Italian bread and raspberry sorbet complete the menu.
