Mahi Mahi

Hook and line caught, Ecuador

Mahi mahi is also called dolphinfish or dorado, but don't confuse it with dolphin (which as you know is a mammal, not a fish). Its Hawaiian name, referring to its swimming ability, means "extra strong."

Because female mahi can produce up to a million eggs each time they spawn, and mahi are 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.

The Ecuadorian fishery is part of a Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) and hopes to gain MSC certification in about a year. To date, improvements to the fishery include the reduction of the sea turtle bycatch. Seafood Watch rates mahi mahi a "Good Alternative.” Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

Arctic Char

Land-based aquaculture, Iceland

Everyone loves this fish! Raw arctic char, like salmon, has orange to pale pink flesh, but when cooked it fades to white. Despite the color of its raw flesh, char is genetically closer to trout than salmon. Its flavor is clean and mild, its texture is delicate, and it is full of heart-healthy omega-3’s.

The fat content of arctic char makes it adaptable to most cooking methods; it can be grilled, sautéed, broiled, and even smoked. According to Seafood Watch, farmed arctic char is "an excellent 'Best Choice'." Low mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $17.50

  • 8 oz. for $8.75*

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
