That's true of East Coast rockfish, but Sprout is on the West Coast and the fishmonger told her it's a type of snapper.

You can pick up a fish grilling basket for your barbecue grill for less than 20 bucks American at K-Mart or Wally World.

What we call Pacific red snapper on the west coast is rock cod. Rockfish, however, is what Issac Hayes' character called James Garner's character on Rockford Files.

Rock fish, striped bass is easy to cook on a grill. Oil the grates & the fish, with skin on making slits every 1/2 " through the skin and season with S&P. Cook over hot coals or heat. Remove, and lace with aluminum foil, then add some chopped tomato's, onion & garlic. Rape & cook indirect heat till fish flakes. Do not over cook.
