Red Grouper as the name suggests has an appealing red skin, especially those caught from the Indonesian waters. Fishes caught from local waters tend to have a pale orange colour. It can also appear in other colours such as shades of olive or yellow. Red Grouper is as popular as the Chinese Pomfret during Chinese New Year and prices can hit the $100 mark too.
Red Grouper has a very tender flesh and flakes beautifully when cooked. It has a firm texture and uniquely sweet flavour.
