Scallop quotas have been reduced, so fresh Reds Best scallops have been hard to come by. These are the same scallops, but frozen, and just as easy to cook. They are never brined or soaked to add water weight, so they brown nicely and shrink very little.
Red's Best Scallops and Fillets are wild caught and never frozen or processed (other than cutting and packing). They are fresh caught on the Sunday or Monday preceding your order and best enjoyed within five days or they can be frozen. To thaw fish that has been frozen, place in a sealed bag in a bowl of cool water. Allow at least a day to thaw prior to cooking. Depending on the size and cut of fish, thawing times may vary.
Each week Red's Best's fishermen will offer us what they expect to be fresh off of their partner boats.
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 usually available at retail stores for a number of reasons.
Fish is handled less and arrives in your kitchen within a few days of harvest.
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.
