Help with Local South Florida Fish

erica | Dec 25, 2012 10:13 AM

I'm spending some time in South Florida this winter. While I am relegated to using an electric (coil) stove, I do have access to a (gas) outdoor grill.

I'd like to experiment with grilling local, non-farmed fish, but coming from NYC, the names on offer at the local fish market are mostly new to me.

There may be others, but so far in the local category, I've noticed cobia, snapper (which type is best?), mahi-mahi, pompano, swordfish, and grouper.

Any tips on what to look for when buying these fish?
Which of them should I put at the top of my list to try?
Any favorite simple recipes for outdoor grill, or indoor cooking?

Many thanks!
