King Salmon

Gill-net caught, Sitka, Alaska

What luck! We've netted another batch of king salmon for this week. I know we've said it before, but this time will be the last wild salmon of the season.

To review: there are 6 different types of salmon (king—also known as chinook—Atlantic, sockeye, coho, pink, and chum). Of these, the king salmon is the largest and fattiest, and it is considered to be the most flavorful. It is the highest of all the salmons in omega-3s, and its high natural oil content gives its meat an especially rich taste. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Low mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $22.00

  • 8 oz. for $11.00

-- Sesame Seared Salmon Over a Bowl of Quinoa, Leeks, Kale, and Broccoli (What’s Cooking Good Looking)

  

 

 

 

  

 

Mahi Mahi

Hook-and-line caught, Ecuador

Mahi mahi is also called dolphinfish or dorado, but don't confuse it with dolphin (which as you know is a mammal, not a fish). Its Hawaiian name, referring to its swimming ability, means "extra strong."

Because female mahi can produce up to a million eggs each time they spawn, and mahi are fast growers, their population is both stable and sustainable. Their pinkish translucent flesh has a sweet, delicate flavor, moderately firm texture, and large, moist flakes.

The Ecuadorian fishery is part of a Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) and hopes to gain MSC certification within 18 months. To date improvements to the fishery include the reduction of the sea turtle bycatch. Seafood Watch rates mahi mahi a "Good Alternative.” Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $26.00

  • 8 oz. for $13.00

-- Blackened Mahi Mahi Tacos with Chipotle Mayo (from That Oven Feelin’)

-- Mahi Mahi with Roasted Tomatoes and Fennel (One Sweet Mess)

  • 1 lb. (16 to 20 per pound) for $18.50

Matiz Sardines in Olive Oil

Galicia, Spain

These wild, tender sardines are sustainably harvested using traditional methods off the coast of Galicia, Spain. They are wonderful on their own,
or toss them with pasta, or use them in salads. Bones are edible.
Net weight: 4.2 ounces for $5.00

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!

6 ounces for $6.00
