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.

Gill net or trawl, US Atlantic
Monkfish is one of the ugliest fish in the ocean, but we love its flavor and texture! Think poor man's lobster.
Once widely considered a "trash" fish, monkfish looks positively prehistoric. Its huge, gaping mouth and hideous teeth are complemented by an odd-looking, dangling apparatus on its head that some say looks like a fishing pole and bait. Its tail though is "seafood gold," with a texture and density similar to that of lobster, as mentioned above. We've seen it used in a number of ways—in "lobster" rolls, risotto, and soup, and also braised and bacon-wrapped. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Low mercury level.

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
