With February coming to an end warmer weather is on the horizon which means lots of new choices in the fresh food department for the Lowcountry. As you all know, Cru Café loves serving up local goods in innovative and unique ways and the new season is a great start. One of our favorite additions that spring brings are the local fish options.
Here in Charleston we are lucky to have an abundance of seafood options right out our back door. Without going too far in the deep seas one can catch Red Drum, Trout, Flounder, Blue Fish, Spanish Mackerel, Blue Crabs, Stone Crabs, Oysters, Shrimp and more. If you’re daring enough to bare the deep oceans you can easily find Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Black Sea Bass, Snapper, Swordfish, Grouper and more.
The water temperature plays a very important role in the migration of the fish. Once the water is warmer, hence the warmer weather, you can start to see more seafood options on the menus of your favorite eateries including Cru Café.
Whenever possible we do our best to utilize local produce and protein. Eating and buying local is so important and seafood is a great avenue to do so!
Bring on the seafood Charleston!
*Fun Tip: While visiting Charleston set up a fishing charter for inshore or offshore excursions! The captain will provide you with everything you need to fish, including a license, and you can choose to catch and release or keep your fish to eat!
