Redfish Fillets Blog

This wild caught fish is straight from Iceland and has brilliant flame-red scales. It’s lean, flaky & moist and will cook up white. It is comparable to Ocean Perch or Rockfish. It’s mild and slightly sweet in taste with a medium firm texture while staying moist. It’s best when grilled, baked or sautéed which makes this fish great for the summer time. The recipe below is for a seafood chowder, which you can make extra to freeze and store for when winter rolls back around. So stock up because when it’s gone, it’s gone!
