No one mentioned the first very important step ie 

" First catch your snapper "

There is also a method that makes it real easy & much neater plus no mess ie.

Oceans & probably other fish retailers will fillet skin & bone for $3 per fish.

Must confess to using their services on a couple of occasions when it was not practical to do at home.

I understand if you are really lazy they will cook it as well ... ideal for a party or gathering.

Forgot to mention regardless of the method used I usually keep some scales from my bigger snapper as the local kids like to screw wheels on them for use as skate boards.

Hey mate I am a fisherman, consequently goes without saying would NEVER stoop towards any form of exaggeration & to prove the point may even donate one or two for prizes in the junior section of the upcoming Grunta Hunter comp !
