Copper River Salmon
$21.00 per pound
Finally it is summer. We went from cold to super hot weather. More important, it is now wild Alaska salmon season and the price has come way down! It started the season at over $40.00 per pound! Perhaps it's the short season—from mid-May through June—that makes Copper River salmon the most celebrated of salmons. Or maybe it's the deep red color, melt-in-your-mouth texture, and exceptional flavor. Or maybe it's the marketing. Who knows. But nearly everyone you talk to says that Copper River salmon is one of the best. What’s more, the price at the end of the season is remarkably low. If you haven’t yet tried it, the time is now!
These salmon travel upstream some 300 miles from the ocean to spawn in Alaska's pristine glacier-fed Copper River (the 10th largest river in the US). Since they don’t eat once they have re-entered freshwater, they need to store massive amounts of fat to make the journey, accounting in large part for its great texture and flavor and its high omega-3 content. Low mercury level. Kosher.
$20.00 per pound
Cobia (sometimes called lemonfish) is one of our favorite fishes. Its meat is firm with a large flake and a mild, buttery flavor. A versatile fish, cobia can be cooked in many different ways: baked, grilled, and sear-roasted or served as sushi.
Open Blue, our source, raises the fish in deepwater net pens anchored to the seabed far off the coast of Panama. The system is designed to minimize the impact on the surrounding marine environment. The net pens prevent the fish from escaping and competing with wild fish populations. The system also uses a closed-loop water system, which means that the water is recycled and reused.The fish are fed an all-natural hormone-, colorant-, and pesticide-free diet.
Open Blue Cobia is certified by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), which is the world's leading certification program for sustainable aquaculture. It has also earned GlobalGAP aquaculture certification and Best Aquaculture Practices. And Seafood Watch gives cobia a “Good Alternative” rating. We support Open Blue's efforts! Low mercury level. Kosher.
Ahi Tuna #2+
$26.50 per pound
The #2+ grade indicates that this tuna is best eaten as ceviche or lightly seared (though Fulton Fish Market—among others—says that it can be eaten raw). The tuna grading system is based on appearance, size, color, texture, and fat content. This tuna is somewhat leaner than Ahi Tuna #1. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative.” High mercury level. Kosher.
