Kyuquot Sound Sablefish
Floating sea pens, Canada
It is difficult to find wild sablefish here in the US because the bulk of the US catch is exported to Japan. Where it is available, it is hugely expensive. We believe that Kyuquot Sound farmed sablefish gives its wild cousin a run for the money.
Kyuquot Sound sablefish are raised in partnership with First Nations peoples. The sablefish are fed an FAO-certified organic feed and are harvested using a Japanese method that reduces stress on the fish. Further, the company raises shellfish and kelp downstream. One filters the waste and the other purifies the water.
Despite its common name (black cod), sablefish is not a member of the codfish family and cooks differently from cod. Its high fat content makes it both flavorful and very forgiving when cooked. Sablefish is also high in polyunsaturated fat, perfect for low-cholesterol diets. It has milky white flesh and a buttery texture. Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

Walleye is so popular that it is the "o-fish-al" state fish of Minnesota, South Dakota, and Vermont. Although it is often called "walleye pike," it is actually a member of the perch family.
What about that name? Walleye has unusual pearlescent eyes that help it to see more clearly in murky water and at night. This factor makes its eyes seem cloudy, but for this fish, the condition of the eyes is not an indication of spoilage.
Walleye has a sweet flavor and a delicate flake, and it can be prepared in virtually any way—sautéed, baked, and grilled. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Higher mercury level. Kosher.

Gibsons Steakhouse Seasoning Salt
Ingredients: Salt, spices, dehydrated onion and garlic.
We are selling this product because a dietician recommended it for a friend with heart issues. It contains only salt, spices, and dehydrated onion and garlic, and it is the secret ingredient that some say makes Gibsons steaks so good. Because it is a healthy alternative to straight kosher salt, we wanted to try it.
The verdict? Gibsons proved to be excellent on fish too!
