Golden Pompano from Florida, I think that is what my local Asian market keeps. Or sometimes Larger ones from China. Stock up your freezer with Pompano because its the easiest fish to cook. This recipe of Golden Pompano is so easy that you are going to make it again and again.
I had 2 Pompanos, which were already cleaned and gutted by our fishmonger at the Grocery Store. Definitely make friends with the guy that sells the fish. Cooking fresh, cleaned fish makes your weekday evenings that much easier.
