What does Pompano taste like?
Our fresh, wild-caught Pompano is a firm white fish with beautiful almost iridescent silvery skin. This shining outer layer is edible meaning no scaling is required and the meat of the fish itself is easy to chew. Flavor-wise it yields a mild, clean taste that is almost sweet and subtle in its sea salt attributes. It is commonly known as “the most edible fish” due to its unique effect on the taste buds and somewhat flaky yet solid texture when cooked.

How to cook Pompano
The Pompano fish is a fantastic staple for any meal due to its easy prep work and flexible flavor making it a popular buy in our local seafood selections. This product can be eaten whole, as it readily comes off the bone, or halved lengthwise for 2 long fillets. As for cooking methods some choose to grill it, others bake it, but the simplest way to prepare it is by broiling with lemon and butter. The citrus aspects help to combat any fishy flavors, but the same can be done with olive oil, tarragon, and rosemary. However, most find the product itself, given its own vibrant taste, enough without the use of other ingredients. The most famous method of preparing Pompano is called “en papillote”, which simply means cooking it in parchment.
What’s the Price of Good, Local-Sourced Pompano?
Our fresh Florida Pompano is priced at a fair $8 per pound of whole fish, though this may vary depending on its availability due to the season. In other words, Pompano is most concentrated in the Gulf of Mexico during the summer months, however, their habitat goes as far as Massachusetts and continues all the way to Brazil. These bottom feeders tend to stay away from clear waters and mainly habitat surf flats.
