Line caught, Alaska
We can't get enough halibut. Its superior flesh is thick, meaty, and firm, and its flavor is sweet and rich. It also affords the cook many options, including grilling, roasting, baking, and broiling.
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. 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.

Norwegian Fjord Trout
Fjord-based aquaculture, Norway
This sea trout comes from an icy Norwegian fjord. The long, deep channel where the fish are raised was formed by successive glacial ice-flow erosions over the course of 2 million years. It contains a perfect mix of salt and fresh water. Its swift current makes for a highly oxygenated water that these fish love. This trendy trout is the same species as rainbow trout, though—like wild salmon—sea trout flesh is deep red. It is sweeter than salmon, and its flavor tends to be rich because of the way the fat is stored.
Sea trout are farmed in uncrowded conditions and are 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.

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!
