Farmed Atlantic Halibut
Wild Pacific halibut is a perennial favorite—its flesh is thick, meaty, and firm, and its flavor is sweet and rich. The farmed Atlantic halibut we are featuring this week is farmed but, nevertheless, comparable in flavor and texture.
Because wild Atlantic halibut is now endangered, many argue that farming is a necessary conservation strategy. The halibut, who are bottom feeders, are raised in 200-meter-deep pens in the clean, swiftly moving fjord waters in Rogaland. Halibut is excellent sear-roasted, baked, or really any way you choose to cook it. Moderate mercury level. Kosher.
1 lb for: $29.00
8 oz for $14.50

Trawl caught, West Coast, US
Petrale sole, which is actually a flounder, was given its name for marketing purposes. It is a right-eyed flat fish that lives on the sandy or muddy ocean floor, off the Pacific coast. The fishery is managed by the Pacific Coast Groundfish Collective.
Chefs consider petrale sole to be the best of the West Coast flounders, because of its mild flavor and delicate flesh. It can be prepared almost any way: sautéed, baked, broiled. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Low mercury level. Kosher.
1 lb. for $15.50
8 oz. for $7.75 ($10.00 min)
-- Petrale Sole with Lemon Caper Butter (Real Good Fish)
-- Petrale Sole with Lemon-Shallot Brussels Sprouts (Bon Appétit)
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
