St. Patrick’s Day is this Saturday so let your rep know if you’ve got a corned fish and seaweed menu that needs last minute help. It’s also time for Spring menu changes with the Vernal Equinox coming up next Tuesday, March 20th.
Here is what else you need to know:
Farmed Baja Striped Bass hits the sweet spot between exotic and familiar offering that has robust flavor, delicate flaky texture and can even work for some “local” menus.
Wild California White Bass fishing closes today but we do have product in house.
Mexican Shortfin Corvina offers all of the familiar flavor and texture of bass at a price point that allows for menu experimentation. Get it while it’s here!
