Kuoquot Sound Sablefish

Floating sea pens, Canada

It is difficult to find wild sablefish here in the US because the bulk of the catch is exported to Japan. When you do find it, it is hugely expensive. We would argue that Kyuquot Sound farmed sablefish gives its wild cousin a run for the money. 

Kyuquot Sound sablefish are raised in partnership with First Nations peoples. They are fed an FAO-certified organic feed and are harvested using a Japanese method that reduces stress. Further, the company raises shellfish downstream, which filters the waste, and kelp, which purifies the water. 

Despite its common name (black cod), sablefish is not a member of the codfish family and cooks differently from cod. Its high fat content makes it both flavorful and very forgiving when cooked. Sablefish is also high in polyunsaturated fat, perfect for low-cholesterol diets. It has milky white flesh and a buttery texture. Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

1 lb. for $29.50
½ lb. for $14.75

Yellow Perch

Net caught, Lake Erie

Perch. We don't like them, we love them! Their small size makes them a natural for pan-frying, but you can also put them in the oven. Once nearly endangered in the Great Lakes, yellow perch have now rebounded, particularly in Lake Erie. This batch is wild-caught from Lake Erie Canada-side. 

Yellow perch is flaky with firm flesh and mild flavor. A Seafood Watch "Best Choice.” Low mercury level. Kosher.

1 lb. for $17.00
½ lb. for $8.50 ($10.00 minimum)

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
