Excellant fresh Pacific Red Snapper. I will order Red Snapper again


The order arrived well pack and still frozen after the long haul. I wish I’ll be able to get the fresh not frozen snapper next time. I will order again in the future with out hesitation. Good job Rivierra.


Super fresh and not fishy tasting. We just steamed in the microwave for 5 min w onions and ginger the poured hot oil and soy over it. Delicious! Thank you for always supplying the freshest seafood for all our holiday gatherings.

A perfect Fish---

My Fish.....arrived ...perfectly wrapped and scaled...gutted and cleaned. After rinsing it off appeared as fresh as if caught hours before. I love red snapper and like to cook it very simply as on a beach in Mexico or the Caribbean. For this I simply roasted over a fire searing the outside skin.....Not wanting to ruin the very delicate flavor of the Fish.I made a creole sauce with Okra and peppers etc...very spicy to accompany the fish as a side. Simple white rice. Of course some Quintessential maduro Plantains Baked as opposed to frying...the meal needs something sweet on the side. I have also used a good indian Chutney when no Plantains. For the fish..I peeled off the burnt skin and drizzled the white meat with a bit of lime......salt and pepper....bueno probecho...that's as good as it gets with out flying somewhere.
