Characteristics of Redfish

What does redfish taste like? Is it fishy, steak texture, flaky, white, or fishy tasting?

Answer
Redfish or Red drum will have a mild, sweet flavor with a medium-firm texture. Not a steak texture like Shark or Swordfish and not as flaky as say a Flounder. If you have ever had Red Snapper the texture is about the same. The raw flesh color of the Red Fish will not be as white as the Black drum, but it will cook up snowy white.

Red snapper is also a good fish to compare taste to, very similar.

Hope this helps you out.

Thanks for visiting the cookingfishmonger.

Arcadian Redfish

Not very flaky, smooth textured, very mild taste. Reminded me of perch when lightly grilled. Can easily be overpowered with accompanying flavors, sauces, etc. I think best eaten unadorned. Would order again.

I had Texas Redfish for dinner tonight, and it was very good.
