Bay Scallops

Wild caught, Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada

If you haven't yet tried these tiny gems, please do consider them! Bay scallops are sweet and mild, with a firm moist texture. They are delicious in pasta, as ceviche, baked with herbs, or lightly pan-seared.

Further, they are dry-packed, meaning that there are no chemicals added. (Wet-pack scallops on the other hand are soaked in a water-retentive sodium triphosphate solution so that 30% of what you pay for is water. Plus they exude so much water that they can't be properly seared.) Our sweet and tender scallops will caramelize nicely. Seafood Watch rates them a "Best Choice." Low mercury level.

  • 1 lb. for $25.00

  • 8 oz. for $12.50

Barramundi

Net pens, Vietnam

Barramundi, reportedly a name given to the fish by indigenous Australians, means large-scaled silver fish. It is also called Passion Fish. In an Australian Aborigine Dreamtime legend, part creation story, the barramundi transforms itself into the moon.

Barramundi is comparable to wild sea bass. It is recommended for its sweet, buttery flavor and is packed with omega-3 fatty acids. This barramundi is farmed in Vietnam under strict conditions. Believe it or not, because of its low environmental impact—low use of chemicals, effluents monitoring, and transparency—Seafood Watch rates this Vietnamese-farmed barramundi a "Best Choice." Low mercury. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $21.50

  • 8 oz. for $10.75

Matiz Sardines in Olive Oil

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
