King mackerel are the largest of the mackerel family, and are truly impressive, with their slender shape and beautiful, colorful skin. King mackerel are a bit firmer and meatier than Boston or Spanish mackerel. While King mackerel are found in the Carribbean and all the way down to Brazil, ours come from the USA. The assertive flavor of King mackerel holds up well to bold ingredients and creative preparations. If you like stronger flavored, high oil content fish like sardines or bluefish you should try our King mackerel.
- If you prefer a slightly midler flavor, simply remove the outer bands of darker meat.
- Our King mackerel are caught in between Massachusetts and Florida, and also found in the Gulf of Mexico.
- King mackerel are a sustainable choice managed under United States and/or state regulations.
