Spring is here and it is a great time to be in Wrightsville Beach NC!

When people come into the store asking for a "mild" fish, we often suggest fresh swordfish.

Swordfish offers many health benefits, especially for people who are following low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets. According to, swordfish has no carbohydrates and contains essential amino acids and omega-3 fatty acids. However, it belongs to a small group of fish that are not recommended for consumption by pregnant or lactating women.

It's important not to overcook swordfish.  However, it is a great fish to marinate, use your favorite rub, or incorporate compound butter (as in the recipe shared below).


You'll love this easy, super flavorful Ginger Garlic Pan Roasted Swordfish. It's the perfect restaurant style meal for your next date night dinner or small gathering.
