Sculpin

Product Description

Sculpin, also known as scorpion fish, has made its way to high end, white tablecloth dining from San Francisco to Chicago.

The species is found along rocky shorelines and typically lives in waters from 80-300 feet. It ranges from red to brownish red in appearance and displays a large head covered with thorns. Sculpin is a popular and tasty food fish, in spite of the spines along its dorsal fin which pack a punch equivalent to a bee sting. When handling this fish whole, chefs must do so with care.

The prized meat within this fish is worth the extra effort it takes to fillet it. Sculpin prey upon smaller fish, shrimp, small crabs and octopus along the ocean floor. This diet results in flesh that cooks up white and firm with a juicy texture. Its flavor is sweet and mild, similar to cod, rock cod or haddock yet still unique.
