Flounder

Hook and line or trawl caught, Rhode Island

Flounder is an odd-looking flat fish with a fine delicate texture and a sweet mild flavor. It is a good introductory fish for those who are skeptical of fish. Some compare it to halibut, which actually is a type of flounder. Halibut is large, firm, and meaty, while flounder is delicate and flaky. Its flavor and texture can be enhanced by a coating of cornmeal or parmesan breadcrumbs for a crispy crust. Seafood Watch rates flounder a "Good Alternative." Low mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $22.50

  • 8 oz. for $11.25

Arctic Char

Land-based aquaculture

Everyone loves this fish! Raw arctic char, like salmon, has orange to pale pink flesh, but when cooked it fades to white. Despite the color of its raw flesh, char is genetically closer to trout than salmon. Its flavor is clean and mild, its texture is delicate, and it is full of heart-healthy omega-3’s.

The fat content of arctic char makes it adaptable to most cooking methods; it can be grilled, sautéed, broiled, or even smoked. According to Seafood Watch, farmed arctic char is "an excellent 'Best Choice'." Low mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $17.50

  • 8 oz. for $8.75

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!
