If you’re a new or avid fisherman and you’ve never heard of whole yellowtail snapper, don’t despair. I’ve spent so many hours researching this fish that I finally found a great recipe that I’m willing to share with you. It’s a relatively simple recipe, but it tastes just as good as the more expensive varieties.
To make these whole yellowtail snapper recipes you need some very good fish. Of course, the most common choice is yellowfin tuna. But sometimes you can find other varieties, like salmon, steelhead, or albacore. You should always look for fillets that are light brown or even light gray. Salmon will do great in a popcorn popper, but albacore works best when served with fresh vegetables and grilled chicken.
If you’re looking for a really easy aioli garlic shrimp recipe, start with whole yellowtail snapper recipes. Start by grilling two pieces of fish; a yellowfin will do great in a medium grill. Just remember, the brighter the grill is, the faster the food will burn. After about seven hours, you’ll be able to remove the fish from the grill and slice it thinly with a knife. You’ll have something delicious, if not the freshest tasting fish you’ve ever had!
To spice things up in your whole yellowtail snapper recipes, toss in some aioli sauce at the end. Aioli is Italian flavored garlic, and its important to your recipe. In a medium bowl, combine three tablespoons of dry Arial garlic, a quarter teaspoon of Tabasco sauce, and a quarter teaspoon of ground pepper. Gently mix them together until they become a smooth paste. It’s best if you can make the paste with the onion grated first before adding the other ingredients. Season to taste and store in an airtight container.
For the spices used in this recipe, I love to use fresh lime peels from my garden. If you don’t have lime peels available, just use the fresh juice from a small bowl of lime. Add the spices and garlic paste to the juice and allow to stand for about five minutes before using. You’ll want to add enough for the entire recipe, but make sure it doesn’t stick to the seafood when cooking. Using a wire rack or baking sheet, coat the seafood with the aioli mixture and then place it over the hot grill for two minutes. You’ll be surprised by the beautiful color that will come out of your grilled yellow tail.
For another delicious, easy recipe, you’ll want to try a stuffed whole roasted yellowtail snapper with lemon juice, olive oil and parsley. Take the stuffed whole snapper, which will be about twice its original size, and fill each section with either lemon juice or olive oil, depending on personal preference. Using a spatula or fork, slowly lower the filled sections into the marinade. As the peppers, onions and garlic start to brown, add the parsley to the mix to enhance the flavor.
These three recipes were created by one person over an eight-hour period using only recipes available online. The result was one of the best meals of our lives, and we were able to come up with these dishes quickly while in a hurry last weekend because we had been invited to a family reunion. I couldn’t believe we managed to get all the food done in such a short amount of time!
In order to create the great tasting foods described above, I recommend investing in a good recipe guide for yellowtail fish fillets. These guides are available at different online retailers for a reasonable price. They provide step-by-step instructions for preparation as well as specific recipes for several types of fish including yellowtail, barramundi and roosterfish. Because they include very detailed information, it’s possible to prepare a fantastic meal that meets the needs of everyone in your family.
