Alaskan Sockeye Salmon
Seine or gillnet caught, Resurrection Bay, Alaska
It is already nearing the end of the season for Alaskan sockeye salmon. One of the most popular of the salmon types, sockeye is rich and meaty with dark red flesh. Look forward to some other types of salmon in the upcoming weeks.
Of the 5 different types of Pacific salmon (king—also known as chinook—sockeye, coho, pink, and chum), sockeye (or red) is smaller than king salmon, but like king salmon, it is high in omega-3's and has an excellent flavor. We love Alaskan salmon grilled on a cedar plank. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice," and it is MSC Certified. Lower mercury. Kosher.

Hook and line caught, Ecuador
Onaga (also known as longtail snapper or ruby snapper for its brilliant red color) is arguably one of the best snappers around. Its flesh is pinkish and its flavor is mildly sweet. When cooked, it has large, moist flakes. Onaga can be eaten in many ways: raw baked, steamed, or poached.
Onaga is often used in Japan and Hawaii to celebrate the new year and at weddings because its deep red color is thought to bring good luck. Not rated by Seafood Watch. Medium mercury level. Kosher.

Fair Trade Shimp (Frozen, Raw, Peeled and Deveined)
Supera net caught, Baja, Mexico, 26/30 per pound
Finally a shrimp you can feel good about eating (and they are delicious, too)! Here's why: Instead of dealing with giant gas-powered trawlers, Del Pacifico works with artisanal fishermen who use small sail-powered boats (pangas), which are slightly larger than a rowboat and have a spectacular sail. (Score one.)
The wind and tide guide the net. Because they operate on such a small scale the fishermen can remove bycatch and return it to the water alive resulting in the lowest bycatch in the shrimping industry! (Score two.)
The boats are small and have little storage area so they can't be at sea for long periods. The shrimp are blast-frozen within hours of capture. What is more, Fair Trade certification guarantees that there are no human rights abuses and that a percentage of the profit is returned to the community. (Score three and four.)
1 lb. (about 16 to 20 per pound) for $20.00

Wild caught, Florida Keys

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!
