Walk on the wild side. Seriously how many opportunities will you have to enjoy fresh North Carolina ribbonfish? Particularly popular in recipes with Chinese influence, this sleek and silver skinned fish has mild, tender meat that flakes easily off the bones.

Bone-in steaks can be grilled or roasted. Fillets are excellent in the pan. Ribbonfish are also a good fish to dry.
