King Mackerel

Recent Catch Info: Fish landed @ Surf City, NC
Catch Method: hook n line


Flounder is the mild, delicate white fish that suits just about every palate. It tiptoes into a dish, makes sure everything is agreeable, and then proceeds to please.

King Mackerel is the opposite. Robust, dense, an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids and the antioxidant mineral selenium, this fish has a presence on your plate. It has attitude. It’s loaded with things that make your heart healthier and your brain stronger. Its bold flavor can be intimidating simply because it isn’t familiar.

Wildly popular in the UK, this oily fish is prized for its versatility. Grilled, broiled, fried, poached, stuffed or baked, King Mackerel works well with a variety of preparations, and loves strong & spicy flavors with a touch of acidity. We are thrilled to offer it this week in steaks and in fillets, ready for your culinary prowess. Enough of the mild stuff. Indulge in this rich and powerful fish.
