Featured Specialty Seafood:

Golden Tilefish

Product Of: USA
Catch Method: Long Line

Beautifully colored both in and out of the water, Golden Tilefish are targeted within a selective fishery with little by catch. Firm and mild tasting, Golden Tilefish offers a variety of options to the chef. Feeding heavily on crustaceans, Tilefish is mild, yet distinctive, clean in flavor and often compared to lobster or crab. The meat cooks up white with a firm, flaky texture.

Cooking suggestions include baking, broiling, frying, poaching or sauteing with an overall favorite of pan searing. The meat holds together well, which also makes it a good candidate for soups and stews.

Wreckfish

Product of: USA/ Mid Atlantic
Catch Method: Hook and line
Sustainability: Best Choice

The Wreckfish fishery is extremely well managed and product is often hard to come by as there are very few devoted vessels for the industry. Only two or three boats in the U.S. are actively fishing at one time, and the quota is divided between those few fishermen. Specific gear is used for fishing so the habitat floor is not impacted and by catch remains almost non-existent. Wreckfish get their name because they are often found around abandoned shipwrecks in deep water banks and around floating lines of wreckage in the open ocean and harvested around the Charleston Bump, off the coast of South Carolina. They have a firm white flesh with a large heavy flake and a mild flavor similar to that of grouper and sea bass.
