Featured Specialty Seafood:
Genuine Redfish/ Red Drum
Product Of: Mauritius Island
Catch Method: Farmed
Sustainability: Not Rated
Native to the Atlantic Coast, northern South America and the Gulf of Mexico, Red Drum are known as the best tasting drum species which almost led to its downfall. Overfishing in the past led to closures of most US fisheries, so today most available redfish are farmed.
In marine pens just offshore of Mauritius (Indian Ocean), the fish grow out in spacious conditions with low stocking densities. Divers inspect the nets daily to maintain net integrity and monitor stock health, while maintaining the highest animal welfare standards and preservation of the environment.
Its white flesh is delicate enough to fry and firm enough to grill, and is well suited for raw dishes. Its mild flavor makes it a perfect option for strong flavors and bold spices.
Gulf Wild Gag Grouper
Product of: USA
Catch Method: Line caught
Sustainability: Good Alternative
Some call Gag Grouper the grouper of choice as it offers the best yield and a firmer meat compared to all other groupers on the market. Groupers are found in the temperate waters from the Mid- Atlantic states and Florida, to South America, Central America and the Gulf of Mexico. All of our fish coming in from Gulf Wild are tagged for full traceability, including the catch method, catch location, fisherman, and the vessel from which is was caught.
Gag Grouper has a mild, but distinctive flavor, somewhere between bass and halibut and is white in color when both in the raw and cooked state. The texture is firm, moist and flaky and best when baked, broiled, fried, grilled or steamed. Most chefs love it because it’s incredibly forgiving, remaining moist even if it gets a bit over cooked.
Product of: Ecuador
Catch Method: Hook and Line
A resilient Central and South American delicacy, Corvina is a member of the drum family and very similar to redfish. The meat shares many characteristics with Grouper and also makes a great substitute. Golden Corvina is mild, slightly sweet, and cooks up firm with large flakes. Corvina is very versatile and is great for ceviche, as well as grilled or sauteed.
