Red snapper, also known as Al Hamra in Arabic is among the most popular of white fish. It is naturally found all over the world. Red snapper has a firm texture and a sweet, nutty flavour that lends itself well to everything from hot chilies to subtle herbs. Whole red snapper can be broiled, grilled, pan-fried, steamed, baked or deep-fried. Fillets are good pan-fried or steamed. Red snapper is also a fine ingredient in fish stew, such as cioppino.
