Perch - Red Ocean Fillet 4/6oz (Pack of 4 fillets)
Origin: Wild Caught off the Coast of Nova Scotia
Fish Facts: Red Ocean Perch or also known as Redfish is a deep-water fish found in abundance in the North Atlantic Sea. Generally fished near the Scotian Bank, Labrador Sea, and Gulf of St. Lawrence our Red Perch is caught using midwater trawls. Mid water trawling allows for targeted fishing at a specific depth while also leaving the seabed untouched. Please note that swollen eyes and air bladders are not an indication of spoilage. Swelling is due to pressure changes as the fish is being harvested from deep waters to the surface. Red Ocean Perch is an excellent source of protein, vitamin D, potassium, and omega-3 fatty acids
Taste/Cooking: Red Ocean Perch’s texture is close to bass, the meat is lean, firm, and delicate. Its flavour is relatively mild since it is a low oil fish and has a slightly sweet, nutty finish. As this is a milder fish, Rockfish will easily take on flavours of ingredients added to your dish. Common methods of preparation include baking, pan frying, deep frying, or grilling. This fish would pair well with our Jamaican Jerk, Basil Pesto, Garlic & Dill, as well as others.
