There are plenty of fish in the sea—and, as a result, plenty of delicious seafood flavors to enjoy here on land! In honor of National Seafood Month, we’re sharing a few of our favorite ways to dig in. Take a look.
Fish for lunch…
When the weather’s this good all year long, it’s easy to go fishing and come back with lunch—or the entrée of a backyard barbecue! If you decide to head out for a fun fishing excursion, just keep in mind the regulations for your chosen catch to know how much you are able to bring home. And most importantly, have fun with it! Fishing may serve a practical end, but it’s also a meaningful opportunity to connect with friends and family on the water; to savor the sunshine and sea spray; and to discover a relaxing escape from life on land. So even if you don’t land “the big one,” don’t worry, because we have you covered!
… or leave it to us!
Craving seafood flavors, minus the prep work? Swing by your local Peach Valley! Here are just a few delicious dishes to try…
Fried Fish Sandwich
As part of our U Pick 2 Menu, the Fried Fish Sandwich is classic seafood fare, and for good reason! It’s fried to delightfully crisp perfection—the sort of flavor and texture that makes you feel like you’re right by the water—and easy to enjoy alongside a refreshing salad or hearty soup.
Smoked Salmon & New York Style Bagel
Who says seafood isn’t for breakfast? Our Smoked Salmon & New York Style Bagel proves otherwise, delivering fresh, subtle salmon flavor alongside cream cheese, diced eggs, red onions and capers, all atop a delicious bagel. The result? A deli classic that packs a powerful protein punch to boot!
Grilled Salmon Salad
Our Grilled Salmon Salad is another great way to get your omega-3 fatty acids for the day (which happen to deliver a major brain boost!). Enjoy fresh grilled salmon atop a medley of fresh mixed greens, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and red onion rings, all served with raspberry balsamic dressing for a flavorful finish.
Blackened Fish Reuben
A smoky, seafood spin on the traditional Reuben sandwich? Yes, please!
Our Blackened Fish Reuben pairs our Fresh Catch of the Day with melted Swiss cheese, house-made cole slaw and thousand island dressing, all served on griddled rye bread in keeping with classic deli tradition.
Shrimp & Grits
This Southern dish is a time-honored tradition, further proof that seafood has earned its rightful place at the breakfast and brunch table! Savor jumbo shrimp, sautéed in a spicy lemon butter sauce with red and green peppers, onions and diced tomatoes, served over creamy homestyle grits for the ultimate double-act of seafood and Southern comfort.
Blackened Fish Tacos
Light, flavorful and easy to enjoy—on #TacoTuesday and every day of the week—our Blackened Fish Tacos are another exciting way to get your seafood fix. Dig into two soft taco shells filled with a blackened Fresh Catch of the Day, Southwest cole slaw, pico de gallo, chipotle mayo and a black bean corn salsa. It’s a taste of the islands mixed with Tex-Mex goodness in every bite.
Pick the perfect seafood pairing
When it comes to seafood, the right drink pairing can make all the difference! For dishes such as our Grilled Salmon, rosé is a popular option as it can stand up to any subtle smokiness from the grilling process, without overpowering the mild meat of the salmon itself—so try a Sparkling Rosé Sangria with your meal! Sparkling beverages with a touch of citrus, such as our classic Mimosa, play well with the rich flavor and texture of fried foods, such as our Fried Fish Sandwich.
Participate in seasonal seafood fun
The seafood fun doesn’t end with October! Seafood events and festivals abound across the Sunshine State in the months ahead; on November 16-17, for example, you can participate in Ormond Beach’s Riverfest Seafood Festival, which offers fresh seafood, music, and a fun al fresco environment to enjoy with friends and family.
Born and raised in the Sunshine State, Peach Valley Café has years of experience turning top-quality seafood into truly delicious dishes. Come discover our fresh flavors for yourself today!
