Pompano, sold as Florida Pompano or Golden Pompano, is a member of the Jack family. Once seasonal wild catches are now supplemented by flash frozen farm raised fish that allow Pompano to be served year round. Most fish are less than 3 lb and served whole. It has very small scales and a delicate white flakey meat that has a mild buttery taste and make it a delicacy in fine restaurants around the country.
