Mild, distinctive flavor and a “robust” texture make Redfish an easy fish to add to any menu. It’s also available whole.
For Your Menu
Chef Paul Prudhomme was famous for his Blackened Redfish – and you can certainly enjoy this fish in that style but it’s also delicious when prepared in other ways, and can be enjoyed raw.
For Your Waitstaff
If you’ve got a hungry regular looking to try something unique, suggest the Redfish! It’s a bit different than other fish with its characteristically firm texture which made it so popular for blackening back in the ’80s.
For Your Retail Display
This beautiful fish would make a great addition to your case – bring in a whole fish to display, and then add your favorite cajun spice blend or blackening spice!
