4-6 Porgies and Scup Fish (6 LB.)
When midweek fatigue is getting you down, there are plenty of solutions to spice up your family meals. Although it may be tempting to preheat the oven for a pizza or order take-out, there’s no denying the benefits of adding seafood and fish to your diet. Our premium porgies are the perfect alternative to traditional meats and poultry and provide the protein you need for overall health. In North America, this species is also known as scup fish, and they can be found and fished anywhere from the coastal waters of South Carolina all the way up to Massachusetts. Our fine selection of porgies fish is wild-caught from the fresh waters of Virginia.
Whether baked, fried, broiled, or poached, porgies offer superior flavor and can complement a wide variety of your favorite side dishes and recipes. You can order this fish with the head on or off, and we will conveniently split your order for you so it’s ready to season and prepare. Our kiting techniques allow you to effortlessly add a stuffing when smoking or baking your fish. Boasting a mildly sweet flavor, scup fish may remind you of snapper. The delicate to medium texture can become wonderfully flaky depending on your cooking method of choice.
We believe that porgies fish are an underrated alternative to salmon, tuna, shrimp, and other popular seafood fare. The edible skin adds a nice, crispy touch to any dinner plate. You can cook our high-quality porgies whole or filleted, pairing it with delicious vegetables, a light broth, or any zesty side dish your family craves. Scup is high in selenium, niacin, phosphorus, protein and vitamins while remaining low in sodium, so you can lose the guilt while admiring its unique flavors.
