Bluefish has a bad reputation as having a “fishy” taste. When handled incorrectly, the rich flavor of bluefish will get even richer. Here at Locals, we love the flavor of fresh bluefish and take great care to handle it properly. Our fish is cut at the last minute and kept extremely cold until it hits your bag.

Recipe wise, bluefish holds up to strong flavors. With this species, air and heat is your enemy. It’s best to keep the fish sealed and chilled until ready to throw in the pan. Bluefish is a great fish for curries and sauces.
