A fish market find - what is it?

lemonwheel | Aug 29, 2014 09:53 PM

I picked up a lovely, bright-eyed "red cardinal" fish at my local Vietnamese market today, and grilled it whole after cleaning. It weighed about 1.5 pounds, was bright red and had a very spiny dorsal fin. It had such an interesting flavor - like lobster or crab, but with the texture of a medium-firm white fish! Does anyone know anything about this fish? Google isn't giving me much, only information on aquarium fish.
