Welcome to the last week of April and the end of the Stone Crab Claw season. This year the stone crab season was shortened by 2 weeks and the last day to go crabbing in Florida for "stones" is Friday. We should see one last shipment in for next week, but I do have a new shipment in for this week!
Sheepshead: I mentioned this fish last week and we sold out quicker than expected. I have new fish in now with more on the way, so if you missed having this great-tasting fish with a very weird name you are in luck. Coming to us from New Orleans once again. Priced at the nice round number of $13.12/lb
Opah: Hawaiian Moonfish as it is called due to the moon-shaped body it has. These fish are large, often weighing in at over 100# with the largest fish recorded at over 2,000#. I don't think that fish made it to market though. The rich buttery texture and flavor make this fish great for the grill or in a ceviche. Priced at $20.99/lb
Kanpachi: Farmed in Baja, Mexico, kanpachi is a great fish for sushi, Crudo (raw application with other ingredients), ceviche, and traditionally cooked methods such as grilling, baking or pan searing. Kanpachi has a high oil content, is rich in Omega3 fatty acids, and low in saturated fats, making this a highly nutritious and heart-healthy fish. Reasonably priced at $19.41/lb for fillets.
We have some more fish coming in this week, including Atlantic Stone Bass (known as wreckfish), Golden Tile, and Black Sea Bass, so check out the website closer to your order day.
