A truly tasty fish, our Lake Victoria Perch, is an excellent example of all the delightful qualities of a freshwater fish! Sourced from, you guessed it, Lake Victoria, it’s the world’s second-largest freshwater lake and home to some of the best seafood you’ll ever try. Perch is recognized and highly regarded for its distinctive flavor profile and medium-firm flaky flesh. Due to the size of their flake, Lake Victoria Perch are often compared to Grouper.
Thanks to its mild briny taste and sweet finish, Perch pairs well with a number of sides. The beauty of preparing fish as your main source of protein is its general lightness in character. While beef and pork often demand light, ethereal sides to counterbalance their bold flavor and heavy qualities, fish allows you to truly get creative and explore something beyond a simple green salad. While we love serving fish with simple peak-season grilled vegetables, it also does well with smashed rosemary potatoes or a crispy potato galette. Pasta and grains, while generally too filling to accompany other meats, do wonderfully with fish. We love a good quinoa or orzo based salad lightly seasoned with bright citrus and herbs.
No matter how you choose to prepare this delightful Lake Victoria Perch, we’re certain you’re going to love it for its excellent price point and your guests won't be able to get enough of its fantastic flavor!
