Alaskan Halibut

Long line caught, Alaska

It might be pricey but we can't resist offering the first halibut of the season! Yes, despite the cold, spring is here at last. Wild Alaskan halibut is a perennial favorite—its flesh is thick, meaty, and firm, and its flavor is sweet and rich. In addition to its excellent flavor and texture, it affords the cook many options. You can grill, roast, or broil it. 

Halibut is among the largest fish in the sea—it is certainly the largest flat fish. Its usual size ranges from 20 to 40 pounds, but it can grow to 8 feet long—as a look at Instagram will show you. These days halibut is strictly managed by the Pacific Halibut Commission. Seafood Watch rates it a “Good Alternative,” and it is MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) Certified. Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

1 lb. for $29.00
8 oz. for $14.50

Norwegian Fjord Trout

Fjord-based aquaculture, Norway

This special trout was brought to Norway from America in the 19th century. It is raised in a long, deep channel formed by successive glacial ice-flow erosions over the course of 2 million years. The fjord thus contains a perfect mix of salt and fresh water. Its swift current results in a highly oxygenated water that these fish thrive in. This trendy trout is the same species as rainbow trout, though its flesh—like that of wild salmon—is deep red. It is sweeter than salmon, and its flavor tends to be rich because of the way it stores fat.

Fjord trout are farmed in uncrowded conditions and fed sustainably, without chemicals or pesticides. They are good grilled, smoked, sautéed, and marinated. Registered by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. Low mercury level. Kosher.

1 lb. for $14.50
8 oz. for $7.25*

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!
Net weight: 6 ounces for $6.00
