The Fisherman's Daughter offers a variety of Gulf Coast seafood caught and prepared in Gulf Coast family tradition. We believe in traceable, sustainable seafood from ocean to table and encourage you to know your fisherman.
Our Gulf Coast pride is rooted deeply in all we do, from mullet to blue crabs. Family recipes passed down from generation to generation span our heritage and excite us still.
Smoked mullet, in particular, is a passion of ours— wild-caught and lightly seasoned with a home made spice blend then smoked over natural wood for 4 to 6 hours, depending on the size and thickness of the fillets.
Mullet is well known for its oily and flavorful meat. It is also the only fish with a gizzard, allowing it to filter out ocean impurities and toxins. The resultant flavor is rich and quite unique.
As travel writer Robert Moss noted in a 2016 issue of SAVEUR, “you can get New Orleans-style gumbo in Boston and Baltimore-style crab cakes in San Diego, but smoked mullet is one of those rare regional delicacies that can still be found almost exclusively where it originated. It’s also a splendid example of how a little-prized fish can be transformed into something delicious and wonderful through nothing more than smoke and time.”
The Fisherman's Daughter is Chanda Jamieson, daughter of commercial fisherman and crabber Robert Jamieson.
My family has fished and prepared Gulf Coast seafood for several generations. My parents (dad is pictured above with me and below with my brother) instilled in me from a young age a sense of family tradition and responsibility. They highlighted the beauty, the absolute wonder, of a life lived in reverence of the ocean.
Waking at 4AM to troll the waterways until daybreak. Tying the bow to a mangrove while the noon sun presents itself. Seeking out the day's catch beneath sun and shadow.
The ocean offers sustenance as well as life, an earned living as well as magic.
It is our honor to catch and prepare these fish which have supported us for so many years. We think you'll love it just as much as we do. -Chanda
