Out of all the incredible seafood that comes from Louisiana’s fertile waters, red snapper is one of our all-time favorites. The versatile fish can be used in a variety of recipes, and this summer, we decided to highlight its beautiful flavor by grilling it whole. The wonderful thing about grilling with whole fish is that it requires minimal preparation and only a few simple ingredients to bring out its best flavors.
The next time you host a backyard cookout, try this grilled whole snapper for a dramatic centerpiece to your meal that will certainly impress all of your guests. This particular recipe gets its wow factor from a variety of fresh herbs and one of our more brilliant inventions: Shrimp Butter. And with the seasonal bounty of local vegetables, like okra and tomatoes, these delectable sides will help round out the meal with bright flavors and smokiness from the grill. Mix up a batch of Watermelon Gin cocktails to sip on as guests arrive, and you’ll be set for a meal that you and your guests will be dreaming about all summer long.
