'Pumpkins' at Zebra

Zebra chef-owner Jim Alexander notes the restaurant just got in some of what he calls "the butter" of swordfish and what is commonly called "pumpkin swordfish," for its distinctive orange-pinkish color. That color is often attributed to a diet heavy in shrimp, and the fish is high-fat and high-flavor; this came from the lower east side of Florida, he says. Look for simple preps all week at the restaurant; 4521 Sharon Road; 704-442-9525.
