MSC Swordfish

Hook and line caught, Gulf of Mexico

Swordfish shows off its most distinctive characteristic—its meaty, almost steak-like texture—when it is grilled. But however you cook it, it's awesome! Plus, it's an excellent gateway fish for those who need convincing that seafood is a delicious (not to mention healthy) alternative protein! 

Because of new fishery management measures, once-overfished Gulf swordfish is now more sustainable than it has been for decades. The swordfish we are offering is handgear-caught, a fishing method that yields no bycatch (no other creatures are caught and killed in the process). Swordfish can be baked, broiled, grilled, sautéed, or smoked. It's MSC certified and Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative.” Higher mercury level.

Red Rockfish

Hook and line caught, Ecuador

The rockfish category contains about 100 species, though only a few are sold commercially. Twenty-five years ago the fishery was nearly depleted but since then it has made a remarkable recovery. For marketing purposes, rockfish is called many things, including striped bass, rock cod, and Pacific snapper (even though it is none of those things).

Rockfish is sweet in taste and low in oil, and it has a large flake. It can be cooked most ways, but its large flakes can make grilling problematic. Each fillet is around 4 to 5 ounces. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Moderate 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

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
