PRODUCT INFO

The popularity of Sapori Del Mare Bronzino is marveling. Also known as Sea Bass, or Loup de Mer, Bronzino has captured the hearts and taste buds of both seafood lovers and non-seafood lovers all over the world. Thanks to aquaculture, Bronzino is readily available throughout the year, wherever you go. This fish is known for its fresh, delicate, white flesh, and its mild, slightly sweet flavor. It is considered one of the ultimate tableside fish.

Sapori Del Mare maintains the same high quality and care. The fish are dieted for two days before harvest. This is done to keep their stomachs empty once harvested which promotes fresh flavor and shelf life. When the Bronzino are brought out of the water, they are humanely killed and instantly placed in a freezing ice slurry to eliminate any stress or lactic acid development during the process. This process produces a clean-tasting and picture-perfect Bronzino. Once harvested, the fish are hand-selected and only the highest quality fish make the Sapori Del Mare grade. The entire process is performed under HACCP guidelines and Sapori Del Mare is Global Good Agriculture Practices (GlobalGAP) certified. Bronzino is healthy for us too as they are low fat, high in protein fish, and rich in wonderful Omega 3 fatty acids.
