Alaskan Halibut

Long line caught, Alaksa

The wild halibut season is starting to wind down. We might be able to squeeze it in one more time before the season closes, but order it now if you like it because it may be the last time we get it this season.

Halibut flesh is thick, meaty, and firm, and its flavor is sweet and rich. It also affords the cook many preparation options, including grilling, roasting, baking, and broiling. 

Halibut is among the largest fish in the sea—it is certainly the largest flat fish. Its usual size ranges from 20 to 40 pounds, but it can grow to 8 feet long. These days halibut is strictly managed by the Pacific Halibut Commission. Seafood Watch rates it a “Good Alternative,” and it is MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified. Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $24.50

  • 8 oz. for $12.25

Dry Pack Scallops

Trawl caught, Delaware

Bite into a perfectly seared sea scallop. Its caramelized, crusty exterior covers a sweet, buttery interior. And it is so easy to make! Just a hot pan, a bit of oil, salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon. It takes all of three minutes!

The sea scallops we offer are shucked on the boat, dry-packed (no chemicals added), and shipped on ice. (Wet-pack scallops—which are soaked in a water-retentive sodium triphosphate solution—exude so much water when cooked that they can't be properly seared.) Dry-pack scallops are firm and slightly tacky to the touch; this quality promotes caramelization. Incidentally, color variation in a raw scallop is natural and confirms the absence of a bleaching agent. 

Seafood Watch rates dry-pack scallops a "Good Alternative." Low mercury level. (10/20 per pound)
