Also known as: Ocean Perch
Navigating the cool waters off Canada's Atlantic coast, particularly in regions like Newfoundland and Labrador, is where you’ll find the vibrant redfish. Sometimes called "ocean perch" or "rosefish," this species is easily identifiable by its striking red to orange-red hue.
The flavour profile of redfish is mild and slightly sweet. It has a medium-firm texture that appeals to both seafood novices and fans alike. Its subtle taste makes it versatile for various culinary explorations, but it's delicious even in its simplest forms.
Bone Strength: Redfish is a source of Vitamin D, which enhances calcium and phosphorus absorption, fostering the formation and maintenance of robust bones and teeth.
Truly a gourmet fish, the flaky flesh has a buttery taste and a silky texture that will coat your mouth with incredible flavour.
