West Coast Halibut season is behind us, but that doesn’t mean the Halibut party has to stop. We have beautiful, refreshed West Coast fish available. These fish were instantly frozen at peak condition and are expertly slacked out to order by our production team. If you have to have a fresh option, try our Farmed Halibut. This fish is sustainably farmed in Norway and cuts out beautifully with extended shelf life since they are harvested to order.
Florida must be seeing red because we are getting some beautiful domestic Red Snapper and Red Grouper from our southern neighbors. We don’t mind taking all of their delicious fish off their hands, especially when these species are running so fresh. Both are caught hook and line and the crispy bright skin is not only delectable, but also wraps the plate like a brilliant, tasty red ribbon.
Oh my, Ono! We are getting some beautiful Ono this week from Ecuador. These fish are running 8 pounds and larger and are cutting out beautifully. They taste like a cross between mahi and tuna and can be a very meaty grill option. King Mackerel is another meaty fish we will see this week. Coming out of Florida, these “king of the macks” are also running over 8 pounds each and have a delectable, assertive flavor.
