Yellowtail Snapper with Corn Salsa

Yellowtail Snapper with Corn Salsa

Things I love about living in Miami:

  1. The beach is across the street and I can use it 9 months of the year.
  2. Abundant and cheap Cuban food.
  3. Cuban coffee. (a.k.a. nectar of the gods)
  4. It’s almost always flip flop weather.
  5. I can get really good tomatoes all year long. (Don’t hate!)
  6. Local Stone Crabs in the winter! (Mustard sauce!)
  7. Running outdoors October – May.
  8. Yellowtail snapper.

Yellowtail snapper is everywhere down here – swimming around while you cool off in the ocean and piled up in the fish cases at all the grocery stores. It’s a really delicious local white fish that’s tender and flaky, but still sturdy. If you can get a hold of some, a simple preparation is all you need to make a good meal. But even if you can’t find yellowtail near you, this is still a great recipe for your favorite fish – halibut, cod, striped bass, tilapia, rainbow trout, etc. Just make sure the fish you buy is a good environmental choice for your area.

Yellowtail Snapper with Corn Salsa

The accompaniment is a super-simple corn salsa perfect for the last days of summer. It’s bright and crunchy, providing a sweet textural contrast the to the rich butter-seared fish. This is one of those recipes you make when you want something special, but don’t want to expend a lot of effort. Just simple ingredients at their best.

  7. I love all the Florida fish: grouper, snapper and shrimp. It’s hard to find good Fla. and Bahamian fish here in NYC, but when I visit Miami or the Gulf Coast, I always order fish!
    Your salsa looks terrific.

  8. There are definitely a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That may be a great point to bring up. I supply the thoughts above as normal inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up where the most important factor will probably be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around things like that, however I am certain that your job is clearly recognized as a good game. Each girls and boys feel the affect of just a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
