We're excited to roll out a new packaging method for our fresh fish fillets utilizing one of the most tried and true handling techniques from top chefs around the world: cheesecloth wrapped fillets! Our processing and packing team is led by Robert Noce, a seasoned executive chef at top restaurants around the country, along with several of his most trusted sous chefs. Together our team is dedicated to ensuring that with every delivery our members receive seafood that our chefs would be proud to work with in their kitchens, homes, and restaurants.
Testing with our team and a select pilot group of members has shown significant benefits in terms of shelf life and maintaining premium quality. Based on the great feedback we received, we're excited to share this new packaging with all of our members! The ultimate goal of this change is to reduce external moisture, and to protect the integrity of the fillet. And please remember, for the best results with your seafood it is always important that you pat dry your fillets after you receive them and before cooking them – to remove the excess moisture and improve the overall quality of the dish.
Please see the letter below from Chef Noce to learn more about the benefits of this additional packing step.
I'm excited to share my years of professional experience working in restaurant kitchens to improve the packing and ultimate quality of your fillets and meals. Cheesecloth is one of a chef's essential tools for improving flavor and texture, and for maintaining the freshness of meat and seafood. This material has countless uses in a kitchen, and is essential for scratch made food, sauces, and broths.
But when used to wrap seafood fillets, the cloth reduces the moisture on the surface of the fillet, thereby improving quality while reducing bacterial activity. The wrap also provides a skin-like barrier that protects the fillet on its journey from our cutting table to your kitchen.
If you'd like to take an extra measure of care, you can even remove the cheesecloth your fillet arrives in, and wrap it with a fresh layer of cheesecloth when you receive it. If you don't have cheesecloth on hand, paper towels can work as a substitute.
We hope you notice the difference in terms of the improved quality and taste of your meals.
