The culinary website, culicurious.com, featured Vermilion Bay Sweet Black Drum in an article and a recipe, Pan-Fried Black Drum, on its website this month. Culicurious is the culinary website of Addie K and Jeremy Martin. The article presents the history and creation of the Vermilion Bay Sweet brand that originated in Iberia Parish. The authors state that among the seafood initiatives of the LSU AgCenter, “the one I am most excited about it the launch of their new brand – Vermilion Bay Sweet.” First, the brand featured premium peeled shrimp, but has since branched off into fish, namely the black drum.
The article is excellent in explaining the emergence of the brand and plans for its future development. You can sample and purchase Vermilion Bay Sweet Black Drum at the monthly Delcambre Seafood & Farmers Market in Delcambre. The next market is December 2nd at Bayou Carlin Cove Boat Landing and Pavilion, 605 S. Railroad (Hwy 330).
