With a fine textured, mild white meat, red snapper is perfect for almost any fish recipe and will delight your gastronomic senses.

How To Make: Mediterranean Roasted Red Snapper with Garlic & Vegetables


  • 2 large whole snapper fish, cleaned and gutted
  • 15 large garlic cloves, minced and combined with a pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground sumac
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 3 bell peppers, different colors, sliced in rounds
  • 1 large tomato, sliced into rounds
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced into rounds
  • Private Reserve Greek extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 lemons


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degree F.
  2. Pat the snapper fish dry. With a large knife, make two slits on each side of the fish. Fill the slits and coat the gut cavity of each fish with the minced garlic.
  3. To make the spice mix, combine the cumin, coriander, salt, pepper and sumac in a small bowl. Use 3/4 of the spice mix to season the snapper on both sides; pat the spices into the fish pushing into the slits you made earlier. Keep the remainder 1/4 of the spice mix aside for now.
  4. Stuff each gut cavity with the chopped dill, and as much of the sliced peppers, tomatoes and onions as possible.
  5. Place the stuffed fish in a lightly oiled baking sheet. Add the remaining sliced vegetables to form a frame around the fish. Sprinkle the vegetables with a pinch of salt and the remaining 1/4 of the spice mix.
  6. Drizzle everything generously with olive oil.
  7. Place the baking sheet on the lower rack of your 425 degrees F heated oven. Roast for 25 minutes until the fish flakes.Transfer the fish to a serving platter and squeeze juice of one lemon all over it. Use the slits you made earlier to cut through and portion the fish. Serve it with wedges of the remaining lemon.
  8. Enjoy with a side of rice and fattoush salad, if you like.

How we package your order?

The vacuum sealed seafood products and frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel are packed in a polystyrene box, so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.

We seal the polystyrene box with packing tape and hand it to our cold chain logistic to deliver to you.

What should I do when my order arrives? 

Remove your seafood products as soon as possible from the box, refrigerate all fresh items and freeze all frozen goods until you are ready to prepare them for consumption.

How is your frozen seafood handled? What is your freezing process?

Our fish and shellfish are processed and immediately frozen in our -45°c blast freezer. No chemicals or preservatives are added during the freezing or production process on any of our seafood items.

What is a -45 Degree Freezer and how does it affect the seafood when defrosted?

Blast freezing seafood products at a lower temperature keeps the wall of the cell intact, ensuring that water from the inside does not exit. When defrosted, the quality, texture, and appearance will remain completely intact just as if it were a fresh product.  

What is the proper way to defrost frozen seafood products? 

If you have received frozen seafood and placed it in the freezer, remove these items from the freezer and store them in the refrigerator for at least one day before you plan to serve it. Allow 12 to 24 hours for the product to properly defrost. Do not rush the defrosting process as it can affect the flavor and texture of your seafood.  

Why are some seafood products unavailable from time-to-time?

The availability of seafood products depends upon the season, weather, and other conditions that can affect a catch or harvest. Additionally, the harvesting of many seafood products is regulated in order to maintain a sustainable supply.
