Fjord Sea Trout

Farm raised, Norway

This week we are featuring sea trout from an icy Norwegian fjord. The long, deep channel where the fish are raised was formed by successive glacial ice-flow erosions over the course of 2 million years. It contains a perfect mix of salt and fresh water that flows swiftly, making for a highly oxygenated water that these fish love. This trendy new trout is the same species as rainbow trout though, like wild salmon, sea trout flesh is deep red. It is sweeter than salmon, and its flavor tends to be rich because of the way the fat is stored in the abdomen of the fish.

Sea trout are farmed in uncrowded conditions and are fed sustainably, without chemicals or pesticides. They are good grilled, smoked, sautéed, and marinated. Registered by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. Low mercury level. Kosher.
1 lb. for $18.00

Yellow Lake Perch

Net caught, Lake Erie, Canada

Perch. We don't like them, we love them! Their size makes them a natural for pan-frying, but they also taste great roasted, grilled, or baked. 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. 

The fish is flaky with firm flesh and mild flavor. A Seafood Watch "Best Choice.” Low mercury level. Kosher.
1 lb. for $17.00
