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