From Florida, this is the time of year for fresh Amberjack. Amberjacks are in the same family as Pompano another great eating Florida fish.

If you don’t like overly fishy-tasting fish, amberjack is the fish for you. It is a firm, white meat fish with a clean, mild flavor but the texture is meaty like a Tuna. It is low in fat and packs a lot of protein.
