Mahi Mahi

Hook and line caught, US Gulf

Mahi mahi is still going strong, so we thought we'd feature it this week. Although it is sometimes referred to as dorado or dolphinfish, mahi should not be confused with dolphin (which as you know is a mammal, not a fish). Its Hawaiian name, referring to its swimming ability, means "extra strong."

Because mahi are prolific breeders and 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 $21.00

  • 8 oz. for $10.50

Dry-Pack Sea Scallops

Trawl, Delaware

Imagine a bite of a perfectly seared sea scallop. That contrast of a crusty—almost crunchy—exterior and a sweet, buttery interior is hard to beat. 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 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)

  • 1 lb. for $21.00

  • 8 oz. for $10.50
