Metropolitan Meat, Seafood and Poultry
Market Update

Feature of the Week May 23, 2018


Not only pretty to look at, red snapper are very tasty and highly popular among seafood fans. Red snapper is a firm-textured fish with moist, white flesh that is delicate and mild. It can be served broiled, baked, steamed, poached, fried or grilled. Snapper skin, like flounder, and mackerel skin is delicious when cooked until crisp.
Near total collapse less than 15 years ago, the commercial red snapper fishery imposed upon itself a whole new management system that meant more predictability for fishermen and seafood businesses, better availability for customers and, most importantly, a path to sustainability for this iconic species.
Let Metropolitan be your source for quality seafood week-in, week-out Always fresh, always available, always delicious.
