Ahi Tuna #1

Line caught, Marshall Islands

It is spring, the perfect time for poke. This tuna is sushi-grade!

Ahi is a Hawaiian name meaning "fire," and this tuna is distinguished from others by its bright yellow dorsal fin and yellow side stripes. Its flesh is red and it is mild and meaty. It's more flavorful than albacore because of its higher fat content.

We love ahi in poke (as pictured above), but it is also great lightly seared, sautéed, or grilled. Try serving it fresh off the grill on a bed of lettuce, tomatoes, and avocados. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Higher mercury level. Kosher.

  • 8 oz. for $13.25

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. (10/20 per pound)

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
