WILD & EXOTIC

Feral Texas Boar  (Sus scrofa)

The Wild Boar of Texas are not the pink, curly-tailed pig of the domestic barnyard. They are the feral descendants of pigs brought from Europe. Firstly pigs were imported as food for exploration and colonization, and more recently for game hunting. The Wild Boar of Texas survive in a natural environment and are harvested for their delicious meat. SeafoodS.com has a direct line to the wild. These Wild Boar provide a deeply authentic flavor of hunted game. The Wild Boar survive on a foraged diet of acorns, hickory nuts, pecan, and seeds. The Summer fattening is at its peak with a long season of fruits, grasses, mushrooms, and eggs. Their varied diet offers a very intense “pork” for any menu. Hunting is open, but your hunt for sensational swine is over.

Ostrich  (Struthio camelus )

Looking for a great beef alternative? Don’t hide your head in the sand when it comes to Ostrich. Ostrich is a phenomenal “Red Meat”. It offers a lean alternative to beef and has a close resemblance in appearance and flavor. Ostrich does, however, have a depth of flavor that surpasses those resemblances. Ostrich has become a very popular protein in the United States and is welcomed to those cutting down on richer meats. It shares a lean quality found in other birds, but blows them away in heartiness. Ostrich holds a multitude of applications. From rare grilled filet to smoked sirloin, the Ostrich is a bird that is more than just the word. SeafoodS.com offer pastured Ostrich that generally feed on the insects, grasses and seeds of their environment. The diet is supplemented with a high quality all natural feed that is packed with protein from natural grains. They are processed in strict accordance to USDA food safety and are readily available year-round. Put a big bird on the board and your guests will be impressed.

Kangaroo  (Macropus giganteus)

Though there are many species of Kangaroo, the most predominant in food production is the Eastern Grey Kangaroo. These are large Kangaroo with lean yet tender meat. Kangaroo meat is a fine textured soft meat with tender muscle fibers, virtually no fat and little connective tissue. Kangaroo meat is extremely healthy. Fat levels of kangaroo meat are typically 1-2%. This means the meat must be cooked rare and with care to avoid over cooking. It is clinically proven that the Kangaroo is a spectacular protein. Kangaroo meat is a staple on the menus of the US Olympics training center.  It is a well-flavored meat with the intensity of the flavor ranging from subtle in young animals to distinctive in older animals. Kangaroo dishes respond well with aromatic spices and abundantly seasoned vegetables.  Jump into Fall with an exotic on the menu.
