Cobia has everything going for it. Flavor. Texture. Consistency. And because of its high oil content, the flesh stays succulent and moist no matter how you prepare it.
Our ocean-raised Cobia is fast becoming a favorite of many chefs and home cooks as it lends itself to a range of international cuisines, cooking methods, and pairs well with a wide variety of flavor.

We all know how healthy seafood is to eat; however, to enjoy it fully, we recommend the following suggestions to Make It Easy!

Fish Fillets

- Sear Medium to High

- 3 to 5 minutes

- Max Finish Temp 145°F

Fish Portions (6-8oz)

- Max Finish Temp 145°F

- Seafood Should be Flaky

Shrimp

- Sear Medium to High

- 3 to 5 minutes

- Finish Temp 130-140°F

DON'T OVERCOOK...SHRIMP IS LOW IN FAT & COOKS FAST

SCALLOPS

- Sear Med. High to High

- 45-90 Seconds per side

- Finish Temp 120°F

DON'T OVERCOOK... SCALLOPS ARE LOW IN FAT & COOK FAST

LOBSTER - BAKED

- Pre-Heat Oven to 350°F

- Baked for 15 minutes

- Use a meat thermometer (140-145°)

- Brush with butter frequently

LOBSTER - BOILED

- Boil Salted Water

- Reduce to Low Bubbling

- 3 to 5 Minutes (3-6oz Tail)

- Add 1 minute for each additional ounce

- Cool immediately in ice water

Please Note: The above guidelines are suggestions only. The average time depends on the size/amount of seafood portions. Stoves and pans also vary in performance, so check color and texture regularly to achieve perfectly cooked seafood. Please use a meat thermometer for accuracy.

Thawing frozen seafood properly is significant not only to ensure the quality of the seafood but also to prevent health risks. For example, all of our seafood has a protective glaze of water to prevent freezer burn-in to ensure quality. Once thawed, gently pat away any excess moisture from the glazing as soon as possible.

We recommend that you follow the USDA’s instructions on safe food handling, which can be found here. We also recommend that all cooking instructions are followed and that you use a food thermometer to ensure that all seafood and other applicable items are cooked to the USDA’s recommended internal temperatures, which can be found here.

Here are a few simple ways how to defrost:

The Refrigerator Method

It might be the longest, but thawing seafood in the refrigerator is undoubtedly the safest way to thaw any protein such as seafood. It also protects the quality of the seafood, providing the best quality-control method. For example, for our Individual Frozen Portions (IFP) or Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) bags like our shrimp and scallops, it can take up to 12- 24 hours to thaw. Please remove from the original package, plate, and cover, or at a minimum, puncture the plastic packaging. Once melted, seafood lasts up to three days in the original packaging. Do not refreeze after thawing.

The Water Method

Here’s how it works:

IFP Portions: Place the seafood in a bowl of cold water (not warm or hot as that starts the cooking process) in the kitchen sink. Change the water now and then or place a constant drip/spray of water to control the temperature. Check the seafood after one hour – it should be fully thawed by then. Cook immediately after thawing.

IQF bags:

Place the desired quantity of seafood (scallops/shrimp) that you will use into another resealable bag.Replace unused IQF seafood immediately back into the freezer.Submerge the sealed bag in a bowl of cold tap water.Let the bag sit in the water until it’s completely thawed, changing the water every 30 minutes, if necessary.

We don’t recommend running under cold water outside of the bag. Cook immediately after thawing.

The Microwave Method

Not always the favorite way, but it’s fast, and the microwave method is undoubtedly the quickest of the three. Still, it’s the least preferred method to preserve the seafood’s quality. But if you forgot to take it out of the freezer and are in a hurry, here’s what you do: make sure you puncture the plastic before placing it in the microwave. Use the “Defrost” function and set the time according to weight. Cook immediately after thawing.

Only from harvesters we trust

Harvested in an area in the North Atlantic called Georges Bank, our wild-caught, sustainable KnowSeafood Signature haddock fillets have been a New England favorite for generations.

Fishing out of our home town of New Bedford, Massachusetts, the local fishermen sail their trawlers to this nutrient-dense body of water and spend a few days towing their nets to land these native fish. Since there are limitations to how much haddock can be harvested, fish are caught to a quota and are not overfished.

Once back to the New Bedford docks, these fresh fish are processed, hand-filleted, packaged, and blast-frozen within hours of being caught.

Only from harvesters we trust

Open Blue takes extreme care to raise the perfect fish from their state-of-the-art hatchery to their offshore open ocean farms. Open Blue is a pioneer in deep water, open ocean mariculture – their fully submersible SeaStations situated 8 miles offshore are designed to withstand the most challenging ocean conditions such as strong currents, high wind speeds, and wave heights.

Determined to create the most innovative and sustainable operation possible, Open Blue selected the Caribbean coastal waters of Panama as an ideal location and Cobia as the perfect fish to feed a growing world – a fish with great flavor and texture, rich in Omega-3 and a minimal environmental footprint.

OUR SEAFOOD HAS A STORY.

Absolutely delicious

I had been told that Cobia was a lot like tilapia, and that made me hesitate, because tilapia, like catfish, tastes like dirt to me. But I had it in a restaurant once, and I did not recall such a thing, so I splurged and ordered some. I prepared it simply; salt and pepper, broiled 3 minutes each side, sauced with some brown butter, lemon, and parsley. Incredible. I can see butter or olive oil poaching this, or adding it as the white fish in Cioppino. And the quality of the product was first rate.

Meh..... other fish is better

Too pricey and not tasty enough... much better fish out there for half the cost. If this was 18 bucks per order then maybe I'd get it again.

Cobia is wonderful

Awesome, I love this fish a lot. Meaty, holds up to cooking in a frying pan with just butter like a steak and has an amazing texture and flavor.

Wonderfully unique

I got this as a fee add-on when I placed my order. I'd never heard of cobra and wanted to check it out. My customers didn't know what it was, either, but I made two meals to give to top customers as a gift, and they both loved it. I will definitely buy more.

Loved the Rainbow trout

I just got my first shipment and all I’ve had is the rainbow trout but it was so delicious tonight we’re gonna have the haddock. It’s so nice to be able to get some different kinds of fish then from Kroger here in Bowling Green Kentucky. Thank you for what you do to get us fresh fish.
