Wild Striped Bass
Hook and line caught, East Coast
A couple of months ago we had some wonderful farmed striped bass. This week we've netted a great price on wild striped bass. If you have a minute, let us know how they compare!
Forty years ago the East Coast striped bass fishery was nearly decimated by overfishing and pollution. Since that time, the fishery has been successfully overseen by the Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic Striped Bass.
Wild striped bass is rich and slightly sweet in flavor. It has a firm, large flake, and it can be baked, grilled, steamed, and sautéed. Its skin too is delightfully "crispable." Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Moderate mercury level. Kosher.
1 lb. for $25.00
8 oz. for $12.50

Redfish (Red Drum)
Perhaps because of the popularity of Blackened Redfish (Paul Prudhomme's classic dish), red drum populations declined dramatically during the 1970s. Strict federal regulations on the catch have helped it rebound enough to allow sport fishing. The redfish we are offering this week comes from a family-owned inland fishery in Texas where they use a high-protein feed (sourced from US fisheries) and do not use hormones or antibiotics. Addi-tionally their environment is free of mercury and other pollutants.
Some people compare redfish to snapper. It is a mild fish with a sweet flavor and medium flake. It can be baked, sautéed, grilled, and (of course) blackened. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Low 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!
Net weight: 6 ounces for $6.00
