Cooks Note

Red snapper is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, a family of fats you need to obtain from your diet. Each portion of red snapper contains approximately 0.4 grams of docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, and 0.1 gram of eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA.

This DHA plays a role in brain function, and getting enough of it in your diet might lower your risk of Alzheimer's disease. Both types of omega-3 fatty acids benefit those suffering from diabetes and help improve blood lipid levels.
