Wild Striped Bass is going to be in limited supply for the next few days. New York State Striped Bass season is closed and Maryland just recently closed its season. Maryland reopens on 2/1/13….. hopefully we will start getting in a fresh, new stock by 2/5/13.
Black Sea Bass is a great alternative to Wild Striped Bass. The Black Sea Bass is leaner, tastes mild and is slightly delicate. There are strict limits on Black Sea Bass to prevent overfishing in the Northeast. As an alternative we also have some beautiful Grouper available.
We have an assortment of nice products that came in from Florida. Aside from Fresh Frogs Legs from the Everglades and 16/20 Fresh Gulf Shrimp we have some gorgeous Red Snapper. Red Snapper fillets will be pinkish in color with some yellow tones in the meat. The cooked meat is sweet, lean and moist. A true American red snapper fillet will not curl when cooking.
Beau Soliel Oysters are farmed using floating trays in Miramichi Bay, New Brunswick. The only other oysters that are grown that far north are the Caraquets. Beau Soliels never touch the bottom and when the winter hits New Brunswick, the oysters are lowered further into the water to prevent icing. They have perfect white shells with black crescents. It takes four years to reach its 2.5 inch size. They taste like champagne which is why it pairs perfectly with any starter.
Give us a call at Wild Edibles to find out about our supply of finfish, shellfish, and other products available for you to purchase today!!!
