WHAT'S THE MEANING BEHIND FISHMONGER APPROVED?
Fishmongers are seafood experts. A fishmonger knows best how to source, filet and distribute fish. As the former owner and fishmonger of the famous Maximo Seafood Shack in St Petersburg, Florida, I know my way around a fish market, fillet table and kitchen. When I say something is "Fishmonger Approved" it means that it has earned my seal of approval as a top quality product, restaurant, recipe or service and are considered the Best In Class!
If you've come here looking for delicious seafood, cooking tips or fillet lessons, you've come to the right place. Swim around and enjoy!
Stay up to date on fish facts, food reviews and #fishmongerapproved fun!
