Mahi Mahi

Hook and line caught, Southern Gulf

Mahi mahi is also called dolphinfish or dorado, but don't confuse it with dolphin (which as you know is a mammal, not a fish). Its Hawaiian name, referring to its swimming ability, means "extra strong."

Because female mahi can produce up to a million eggs each time they spawn, and mahi are fast growers, their population is both stable and sustainable. Their pinkish translucent flesh has a sweet, delicate flavor, moderately firm texture, and large, moist flakes. Seafood Watch rates mahi mahi a "Good Alternative.” Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

1 lb. for $15.00
8 oz. for $7.50*

-- Pesto Crusted Mahi Mahi with Blistered Tomatoes and Lemon Butter (from Life as a Strawberry)
-- Mahi Mahi with Braised Brussels Sprouts and Feta Butter (Barton Seaver, For Cod and Country)

* A $10.00 minimum applies to all orders. If your total order is less than $10.00, please contact us and we'll place the order for you. 

  

 

 

 

  

 

Haddock

Line or trawl caught, East coast

Haddock, cod, and pollock—though all related—have different flavors and textures. The haddock we are featuring this week, tends to be slightly thinner than cod and has a finer flake. Most chefs prefer the flavor of haddock to others in the cod family, and some compare its taste to that of halibut.

Haddock is excellent for baked fish and chips (see recipe), but if you'd prefer a different option, try simply roasting it with fresh vegetables (still more recipes linked below). Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Moderate mercury level. Kosher. 

1 lb. for $16.00
8 oz. for $8.00*

-- Baked Haddock with Roasted Tomato and Fennel (Feasting at Home)
-- Helen’s Haddock Fish Chowder(New England Today)

* A $10.00 minimum applies to all orders. If your total order is less than $10.00, please contact us and we'll place the order for you.

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
