Golden Corvina

Gill net or handline caught Ecuador

While corvina is more available now than it was a decade ago, you probably won't find it at your local Jewel or Mariano's. It Is a delicious firm, mild, and sweet fish. To us, corvina is special. If you like redfish and meagre, you will probably like this too.

Corvina is a generic name for a large number of fish in the Sciaenidae family, which includes both croakers and drum fish. (Those common names reflect the sounds each fish makes: Croakers croak while drum make a beating or drumming sound.)

You can prepare corvina in a number of ways: as ceviche, baked, broiled, grilled, and sautéed. Low to moderate mercury. Kosher.
1 lb. for $23.00

Arctic Char

Land-based farm, Iceland.

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
