Dry-Pack Sea Scallops

Trawl caught, Delaware

A bite of a quickly seared sea scallop begins with a crusty—almost crunchy—exterior and is followed by a contrasting sweet, buttery interior. The sea scallops we offer are shucked on the boat, dry-packed (no chemicals added), and shipped on ice. (Wet-pack scallops are soaked in a water-retentive sodium triphosphate solution, meaning that when cooked they exude so much water that they can't be properly seared.) Dry-pack scallops are firm and slightly tacky to the touch; this quality promotes caramelization. Incidentally, color variation is natural and confirms the absence of a bleaching agent. 

Seafood Watch rates dry-pack scallops a "Good Alternative." Low mercury level.

1 lb. for $24.00
8 oz. $12.00

Meagre

Farm raised, Greece

Meagre (also called stone sea bass and salmon bass) has become a member favorite. Long popular in Europe, it is gaining popularity stateside 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 $23.00
8 oz. for $11.50

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
