Roasted Snapper Fillet and Sustainable Seafood Recipe
Roasted snapper fillets seasoned with rosemary, garlic and olive oil dusted with breadcrumbs and roasted in the oven or also excellent cooked on the grill. This takes less than 30 minutes to make and we enjoyed this with a cucumber tomato salad on the side.
What is sustainable seafood was my first thought after hearing about this? What that means is the fishing is managed for protection against overfishing, habitat damage, and pollution and doesn’t compromise the surrounding ecosystem. As a consumer, you can drive the market for sustainable seafood by choosing fish only from healthy, responsibly-managed sources, and caught or farmed in ways which minimize damage to the marine environment. A practice I will follow moving forward.
