How We Get The Cajun Flavor!
Red snapper shines as the protein in this recipe paired with a cream tomato sauce and plenty of Cajun spice. You can use a store-bought Cajun spice blend to save on prep time. This versatile spice is often made with a blend of dried spices like paprika, garlic, onion, thyme, oregano, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.

Learn About Our Red Snapper!
Here at Sizzlefish, our red snapper is Wild caught in the US Gulf as part of a sustainably managed fishery. Red snapper is a catch prized by both commercial and recreational fishermen. This highly sought-after fish is known for its mildly sweet, nutty flavor and firm, white flesh.

Health Benefits of Red Snapper!
American red snapper is a highly versatile fish, perfect for grilling, sautéing, and baking. When you order Red Snapper from Sizzlefish, each perfectly sized portion is hand cut and individually vacuum sealed in 4 oz. portions for convenient thawing. Red Snapper is abundant in the mineral selenium. This mineral helps increase white blood cell count and supports thyroid function. Snapper is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids that help reduce inflammation throughout the body. Rich in protein, red snapper supports muscle growth and maintains strong bones, tissues and cartilage.

Description Of How To Get The Best Flavor!
After searing the snapper, the Cajun cream sauce is prepared by sautéing garlic in butter until fragrant. Next, the cream cheese, tomatoes, and chicken stock are added. Once the cream cheese melts, the sauce will thicken slightly and turn velvety smooth. Return the snapper to the pan and heat for a couple minutes longer. Spoon the sauce over snapper to envelope it in the flavors. Top with parsley and enjoy hot!
