TASTE & FLAVOR: Fresh swordfish is a mild-tasting, white-fleshed fish with a meaty steak like texture.
PREPARATION: Most of the swordfish is cut into steaks which is great for pan-frying or grilling. You can marinate the fish overnight or just simply add olive oil and toss on the grill.
FISHING METHOD: longline & deep set buoy gear
CAUGHT IN: Mexico
FISHING SEASON: Year Round
HOW IT COMES: Our fish is fresh and includes skin and bloodline to show freshness, comes delivered in gallon bag. Each pound is a weight estimate, it is not exact. We do our best to get it as close to the ordered weight as possible. Each cut of fish is anywhere from .8lbs-1.2lbs in size. We suggest ordering at least 2lbs for the best cuts of fish.
STORING: If you choose to store your fish in the refrigerator we suggest consuming it within 3 days of delivery. If you do not plan on eating the fish within 3 days we suggest freezing it immediately after delivery to ensure freshness. Before freezing we suggest removing the fish from the bag, rinsing it with cold water and patting dry. Then place it in a vacuum sealed bag, airtight ziplock bag, or double saran wrapped before freezing. To defrost run cool (not hot) water over the bag for 5-10 minutes. Defrosting in the refrigerator is the second best option.
SUSTAINABILITY: Please refer to NOAA's FishWatch.gov for more information on this species fishery.
