Catch + Cook

The fruits of South Florida’s waters—such as red snapper, mahi-mahi, tuna, and wahoo—deserve special treatment in the kitchen to showcase their savory nature. Now, after a day at sea reeling in big ones, anglers can bring their bounty to PB Catch. The restaurant’s new Catch & Cook service only requires a call ahead for chef Aaron Black to begin preparing a seafood feast. “Depending on what someone brings in, I like to start off the meal with a crudo, ceviche, or even a tuna poke with some avocado and a yuzu ponzu sauce,” says Black, himself an avid fisherman. For the main course, he can cook the fish according to any of the preparations on the menu (like pan seared with crispy potatoes, Castelvetrano olives, peppadew peppers, and a Spanish sherry vinaigrette, or beer battered for a classic fish and chips combo). Guests can also enjoy their catch grilled and paired with sides like basil jasmine rice or caramelized soy brussels sprouts for a more straightforward expression. Black says, “That’s what really fresh fish is all about: simple flavors.” Palm Beach (561-655-5558,
