Grouper belongs to one the largest fish families, the seabass family. Grouper is found in the waters of Florida and the Mid-Atlantic states as well as South America, Central America, and the Gulf of Mexico. Chances are if you have eaten grouper it has been red grouper. This fish has a mild but very unique flavor, somewhere between bass and halibut. Red grouper is not quite as firm and has a milder, sweeter flavor than black. Grouper meat cooks up very firm with big flakes, and it holds its moisture better than many other fish. Since red grouper is a leaner fish, you might need to baste it when broiling or baking it.
Notes from our buyer
We are still receiving Copper River sockeyes, but we are also seeing some early Snow Pass coho. We will have both this week.
Prices are right and production is rolling. Take advantage of this while it lasts.
We will be receiving some beautiful red and Yellow Edge grouper for the weekend.
Summer temps are here and causing the yields on the oysters to decrease. That means the meat in the shell will be smaller and the gallon oysters will be as well. This should continue until the temp begins to drop.
Trout 6 oz Natural Cut
We will start bringing in this product as a great lunch item for your menu or special board. Is has a great presentation and good food cost.
Beautiful farm-raised Texas striped bass is a perfect sustainable option for any menu! The fish is kept below 38 degrees from the time it is harvested from the water to the time it hits your door.
We have some beautiful halibut in. Keep it on the special board; it won’t be around forever.
Redfish production is tight again. We are receiving as much as we can from the farm, but they are not able to harvest all we are ordering. Drum is an excellent alternative.
