Caribbean Style Red Snapper

Caribbean Style Red Snapper


Except red meat, fish is also a great food to cook in grill. The juicy meat and the freshness deliver magnificent flavors that nobody can resist. Maybe some of you might have grilled fish before, like salmon or tuna steak, but grilling a whole snapper is totally another thing.


If you are a fish lover and you want a little bit of the Caribbean twist to your fish, this recipe would be good for you.



Ingredients you’ll need:

A fresh red snapper

2-3 stems fresh thyme

1 green onion

2 garlic cloves

2-3 stems fresh dill

Scotch bonnet peppers

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1/2 tsp red chili flakes

Olive oil

1 lemon



Tools you’ll need:

Royal Gourmet Barbecue Tongs

Royal Gourmet Silicone Barbecue Brush



Grill recommended:

Royal Gourmet CC1830F Charcoal Grill with Offset Smoker



Not in every corner ofAmericayou can get fresh red snapper. If you can’t get fresh red snapper, the frozen one works as well.


Put your nice and clean red snapper on a cutting board, make some cuts on it, which helps cook the fish all the way through.


We’ll mainly add the flavor by stuffing spices. Make the red snapper stuffed with the fresh thyme, dill, green onion, scotch bonnet pepper, lemon slices, garlic and onion. You can roughly chop them if you like.


Drizzle with a little olive oil and brush the fish with Royal Gourmet silicone barbecue brush, which helps keep the fish moist during grilling process.

Sprinkle salt, pepper and red chili flakes accordingly, and season the snapper well.


Preheat your grill and grease with oil.

A charcoal grill is recommended since the charcoals give extra tasty smokey flavor, although a gas one also performs well.


It is, as a matter of fact, not that hard to grill a whole fish. Simply season the fish and place it on grates with proper time and temperature control, a delicious grilled red snapper can be done.


As the meat of fish is relatively more delicate, it’s better to wrap the fish with foil. It keeps the fish moist and prevents it from breaking down.


Grill the wrapped fish in grill over indirect medium heat, which will give the red snapper low and slow cooking so that it comes with mouthwatering smokey flavor.


It takes 10-15 minutes for each side according to the size of your snapper, flip once.


About half an hour later, your fish is ready to go.

Open the foil carefully, and you’ll see an appealing grilled red snapper with extraordinary aroma. The spicy flavor from chili and pepper give you a hit from Caribbean. Drizzle with some fresh lemon juice to make the whole taste even better.


If you ever had great vacation time in Caribbean beaches, you’ll definitely have to try this recipe. Every single bite brings you the fresh breeze and amazing memories from the ocean. Even if you’ve never been there yet, you’ll be transferred to the beautiful islands immediately.
