Ahi Tuna #1

Line caught, Marshall Islands

Spring is here! If you want to kick it off in style, this sushi-grade ahi (indicated by the #1) is for you! Ahi—its Hawaiian name, meaning "fire"—is distinguished from other tunas by its bright yellow dorsal fins and yellow side stripes. 

Yellowfin is red-fleshed, mild, and meaty, and it's more flavorful than albacore because of its higher fat content. We love it in poke, but it is also great lightly seared, sautéed, or grilled. Watch the video showing how to make Sesame Crusted Ahi on a bed of fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and avocados or anything else you have on hand. Who could ask for anything more?

Because of the high cost of sushi-grade tuna, we are offering two portion sizes: ¾ of a pound and the usual one pound. In the store just choose the size that you'd like. 

Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Kosher. Higher mercury level. 
1 lb. for $26.50
¾ lb. for $20.00

Rainbow Trout

Aquaculture, Idaho

The rainbow trout farming is one of the oldest aquaculture industries in the US, dating back to about the 1880's. Clear Springs farm (the source of our trout) was started in 1966 and was the first rainbow trout farm to receive Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification. It continues to pride itself on its environmental stewardship in all aspects of aquaculture, including feed and waste management.

Expect a firm texture and a mild flavor. The fish comes butterflied and ready to cook. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Kosher. Low mercury level.
1 lb. for $13.00
