A great choice of seafood due to sustainability and is considered one of the best eating fish of the ocean. Generally found in the great depths of the Western Atlantic with a mostly fish, squid, and crustacean diet, giving them a nice distinct, shellfish flavor. Constantly roaming in motion of cold waters, which allows for a more firm and flaky texture when cooked. Their thick fillets will hold up well in most cooking methods and are excellently prepared in chowders and seafood sauces. A wild caught variety offered filleted or whole.
Often I'll talk with my account manager at Sam Rust and they'll come up with a product that I didn't know about or you don't see in the market - which helps keep my menu exciting.
