Miami Fish Market will be unlike anything the Gold Coast has seen before. Taking over a former factory space in Miami, the venue will be open to the public and showcase a mouth-watering selection of sustainably sourced seafood, primarily from Australia and New Zealand, but there will be some specialty goods from Europe and Japan. The exact details are being kept under wraps for the moment but we’re told to expect some live seafood as well as some more unusual selections – including Paul’s favourite, sea urchins. You needn’t possess mad culinary skills to enjoy the fare as there will be a selection of ready-to-cook fillets that are pre-marinated so all you have to do is bake in the oven for 15-minutes and voilà, you have yourself a restaurant-quality meal at home – suffice to say, we’re here for it!
Excitingly, there will also be a dedicated sashimi and oyster bar so you can sit and slurp back freshly shucked oysters ’til your heart’s content. The idea for Miami Fish Market has been rattling around in Paul’s brain for a number of years but it wasn’t until his path crossed again with his old friend, Craig Warren, who coincidentally had been working at various fish markets and farms in Japan. The pair decided to join forces and have gone to great lengths to ensure every one of Miami Fish Market’s suppliers practice sustainable fishing because we’ve all seen that Netflix doco. Miami Fish Market is expected to open in June so watch this space.
