Fresh, Sustainable Seafood!

By | Seafood, Southern Foods, What Chefs Want

From Kelly Probst / Director of Seafood Purchasing for Boat Direct:

“Spent this past week with a number of mongers on the California coast. Well, what else am I going to do when Hurricanes have messed up our Atlantic side fishing so much?!? Hunt the US for cool, unique line caught fish to bring back home!”

“Encinitas has a special place in my heart. Grew up there, Surfed D Street for surf PE in high school and that’s where my love for fish was spawned. Fish are so cool! It is such a pleasure to work with you guys and to see how you treat such amazing creatures with so much respect as they deserve.”

Item of the Day – Copper Shoals Red Fish

By | Gourmet, Item of the Day, Seafood, Smart Catch, What Chefs Want | No Comments

Copper Shoals Red Fish

Item 48074 Whole 4-6 lb avg

Item 48072 Fillet

Fresh whole farmed Copper Shoals Red Drum from Texas. Fresh farmed Copper Shoals Red Drum hand-cut fillet from Texas.  
Red fish or Red drum will have a mild, sweet flavor with a medium-firm texture. Not a steak texture like Shark or Swordfish and not as flaky as say a Flounder. If you have ever had Red Snapper the texture is about the same.
