Stone Crab Claws

Trap caught, Florida

It is stone crab claw season! The crab we're offering is trap-caught off the west coast of Florida where it is harvested and cooked the same day as it is caught thus never frozen. The crab industry is highly regulated and stone crab is among the most sustainable seafoods available. Only the large crushing claw (which regenerates) is removed. Crabbers are careful to avoid egg-bearing females in harvesting. 

Stone crab claw meat is pure white, moist, and tasty. We think it's best served chilled with a good dipping sauce. It can also be sautéed (say in butter) for a few minutes, but it is already cooked so no further cooking is needed. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Approximately 6 to 8 large-sized claws.

1 lb. for $20.00

  

 

 

 

  

 

Meagre

Aquaculture, Mediterannean region

Meagre (also called stone sea bass and salmon bass) is fast becoming a member favorite. Long popular in Europe, it is now gaining popularity here too. Meagre has appeared on the menu at The Girl and the Goat, The Little Goat, Boka, Coco Pazzo, Anteprima, and other other fine dining establishments.

Its delicate, sweet taste is much like that of corvina and bass, though its flesh is denser. It received a "1 Star Superior Taste Award" from the renowned International Taste and Quality Institute in Brussels. See for yourself why chefs are so excited about it. Low mercury level. Kosher.
1 lb. for $24.50

Skate Wings

Trawl caught, East coast

Skate wings are exaggerated pectoral fins made of cartilage. Sounds delicious, no? Well, they are a taste treat. Many compare their flavor to that of scallops. 

We love skate, but one note of caution: they are best when super fresh. If you are not planning to cook the night you pick up your fish, best to either freeze it 😠 or opt for the meagre or crab claws. Seafood Watch rates skate a "Good Alternative." Low mercury level.
1lb. for $14.00

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!
Net weight: 6 ounces for $6.00
