Lake Erie Whitefish

Trap-net caught, Lake Erie, Canada

Whitefish is a reliable all-around fish. It has large flakes and is thick, rich, and versatile. Its fat content makes it particularly flavorful and excellent for smoking.

You can use it in just about any recipe that calls for a "white fish." Really, a quick sauté with lemon and butter, is all you need. See our recipes page for more inspiration. Seafood Watch rates whitefish a "Good Alternative." Low mercury. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $12.00

  • 8 oz. for $6.00*

Redfish (Red Drum)

Land-based aquaculture, Texas

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. Additionally their environment is free of mercury or 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.

  • 1 lb. for $24.50

  • 8 oz. for $12.25

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
