Red porgy has white, tender meat with a large flake and mild, sweet flavor. It has been compared to snapper in taste and texture.Porgies contain lots of small bones, which makes them difficult to fillet.
Porgy is a versatile fish that can be used in many preparations, and its mild flavor works well with a variety of flavor accents. Dressed fish and steaks can be stuffed and baked. Whole fish are good cooked on the grill or oven roasted; these methods soften the bones and allow the meat to slide off them more easily. Porgies can have tough, hard-to-scale-skin. It’s easiest to have the fish scaled before buying.
