Fish tacos can be done plenty of different ways, and this red snapper version doesn't disappoint. Char-Griller ambassador, James Llorens of Certified Creole BBQ, shares his Fish N' Bone Roasted Caribbean Red Snapper recipe for fish tacos. 


  1. Score the red snapper on an angle to the bone 2-3 times on each side depending on the size of the fish. This allows seasonings to go into the fish and helps during the cooking process. 
  2. Season all sides of the red snapper with your favorite fish & lemon garlic seasonings. 
  3. Place the red snapper in a plastic bag or bowl and add the Cilantro, Lemon, Garlic, Onion & Jalapeno Marinade to the red snapper and mix thoroughly. 
  4. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes. 
  5. After 30 minutes, remove from the fridge. 
  6. Place the red snapper onto the Super Skewers with lemon slices, lime Slices and a jalapeno. Add some additional fish/lemon garlic seasonings. 
  7. It’s now ready for the grill 

Grilling/Roasting Directions: Grilling/Roasting Time: 20-25 minutes, internal temperature 145° 

  1. Ignite your lump charcoal and preheat your grill to 400° 
  2. Add the Super Skewers with the red snapper to the grill directly over the lump charcoal. No need to close your grill hood. 
  3. Allow to roast over the open fire for 8-10 minutes and rotate it. 
  4. Then allow the red snapper to cook to internal temperature 145° and remove from the grill and it’s ready for immediate eating. 
  5. Tip: take the guesswork out and use the Char-Griller folding probe to easily see what temperature the red snapper is at. 
  6. Warm up your favorite tortillas. 
  7. Shred fish and add to the tortillas with your favorite salsa or use my Summertime Watermelon Salsa recipe. 
  8. Enjoy!
