Albacore Tuna

Hook and line caught, Washington coast

There are many different kinds of tuna. Albacore tuna, which differs greatly from ahi tuna in color, is the tuna used for tinned tuna (95% of all albacore harvested is canned). Also, to quote Wild Pacific Seafood, "there are significant differences in methods of catching, sustainability, and the product itself." 

Of all the tunas, albacore is the lightest, it has the highest level of omega-3s, and it is among the mildest. Because of its light color, albacore is often called the other white meat. The phrase "chicken of the sea" was meant to call light fleshed meat to mind. (Sorry, Charlie!)

Albacore has a steak-like texture that makes it great for grilling and searing. It is listed by Seafood Watch as a "Best Choice." Moderate mercury. Kosher.

Bluefish

Line caught, Rhode Island

Bluefish, which is usually caught as bycatch—that is, few fishers go out looking for it—has a generally bad rap. When it comes to fish, let's agree that tastes vary. Some of us prefer milder fish that can carry a great sauce. Those who like the assertive flavor of wild king salmon and other such fish, should enjoy bluefish's persuasive combination of unapologetic flavor (think mackerel or sardines) and rich tenderness.

It is high in omega-3's, so is great smoked. It is also good baked, broiled, or sautéed. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Higher mercury level. Kosher.

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!

6 ounces for $6.00
