Each Week Red's Best's Fisherman will offer us what they expect to be fresh off of their partner small boat day fisherman.
This fish and shellfish is extremely fresh and literally right off of their small boats. All fish are caught using small scale sustainable methods such as hook and line and small gill nets, so that ocean and fish stock damage is minimized. This ensures a sustainable future of quality fish for us, for the fisherman and the communities they live in.
Quality is much higher than what is available at retail stores for a number of reasons.
- Fish is handled less and arrives in your kitchen within a few days of the catch.
- These fisherman return each day with their catch and do not store or hold fish.
- All fish is wild caught and not frozen or processed in any way other than cutting or packaging for travel.
- Your fish arrives at Red's Best Monday morning, Farmers To You picks it up Tuesday, and you receive it Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Flounder are sweet and tender filets that are easy to prepare. The flavor is mild and buttery, and the small filets are easy to handle. Sweet and earthy flavors like leeks and mushrooms complement flounder nicely. Lightly dust filets with seasoned flour, sauté in butter, and top with sautéed mushrooms and leeks for a quick meal.
Keep refrigerated and eat within 5 days or freeze.
