THE FISHERY - Gulf Direct from Bilouxi. All the great Gulf Seafood that you anticipate from Direct overnight shipping from Mississippi.

THE FISH - Redfish is a phenomenal Center of the Plate species. The Flesh has large loose flakes that are packed with moisture and a clean ocean flavor. The Skin crisps wonderfully and has a "Fish Bacon" appeal. The Redfish has as many culinary application as the imagination will allow. The fish is very forgiving to high heat applications and "Green" Line Chefs. This is a very recognized "Blackened" Species. Thanks Chef Prudhomme.
