Carolina Catch

Fresh off the dock. These beautiful fish are out of Murrels Inlet.  Fish are caught on local day boats and backhauled directly to the Halperns' facility on our climate contolled truck.

The fish are then fabricated in our state of the art cut shop and shipped to our customers on the very next delivery!  It does not get any fresher.

Any given day we may see... Amberjack's, Trigger, Black Grouper, Scamp, Red Porgies, Mahi Mahi, Jolt Heads, Grunts, Black Bass, B-Liner Snappers, Hog Nose Snappers and more.

Porgies make for some great local color on your Menu. They are lean fish, with coarse texture and delicate flavor.  Try baked, broiled, grilled or poached.  And they are delicious pan fried!!

Pumpkin Sword

The orange swordfish is commonly called a "Pumpkin Sword".

It is thought that the color of the flesh is obtained due to naturally occurring carotene's in the prey. The orange flesh color can be attributed to the ingestion of shrimp and/or squid.

The blood line appears to remain quite ordinary in appearance. There appears be no difference in quality when compared to normal sword. It may actually have a slightly sweeter taste to it.
