White Seabass Fillet, Frozen (IQF)
This product is available during these seasons:
Working with day boat fishermen in Baja, we bring in white seabass caught by hook and line or low impact hand thrown nets. This beloved species is harvested year round but mostly during the spring and summer on the Pacific coast of California and Baja California as well as the Sea of Cortez. Providing a moist tender white meat with a mild flavor, white sea bass is perfect for pan frying, poaching, or grilling.
The Frozen Advantage
To preserve the just caught freshness of this wild caught product, it is filleted into one pound portions, IQF (individually quick frozen or "blast" frozen) and vacuum sealed. The biggest advantage of properly frozen seafood is that it enables you to conveniently enjoy your favorite varieties year-round! This product is IQF, which refers to foods that are individually quick or "blast" frozen. When something freezes quickly, it forms smaller ice crystals than when it freezes slowly. Smaller ice crystals prevent damage to the fibers of food, which keeps the foods in prime condition. The result of IQF seafood is a product that in some cases is even better fresh!
