This week’s fresh catch is Vermillion Snapper. From Sea to Table, “Vermillion Snapper, also known as a beeliner, is caught off of the U. S. coast from NC and around the Florida panhandle to Texas. Similar in appearance to their cousin the Red Snapper, Vermillion Snapper are a smaller fish with lean flesh, a mild, sweet flavor, and a medium-firm texture. They are most abundant in shallow water where they live near the seafloor, near the edge of continental shelves. Hook-and-line gear are primarily used to catch this species closer to shore. Any recipe that you’d use for Red Snapper can also be used for Vermillion snapper.”

Price: $25.90/ lb. (skin-on filets, approximately 1 lb.)

Snapper is a low-calorie, lean source of protein that is rich in selenium, vitamin A, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids.
