Walleye

Gill net caught, Lake Erie, Cananda

Walleye is so popular that it is the "o-fish-al" state fish of Minnesota, South Dakota, and Vermont. Although it is often called "walleye pike," it is actually a member of the perch family.

What's up with that name? Walleye has unusual pearlescent eyes that help it to see more clearly in murky water and at night. This factor makes its eyes seem cloudy, but for this fish, the condition of the eyes is not an indication of spoilage.

Walleye has a sweet flavor and a delicate flake, and it can be prepared in virtually any way—sautéed, baked, and grilled. My mother's favorite Florida restaurant serves this Midwestern lake fish topped with artichokes and tomatoes, then drizzled with béarnaise sauce. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Higher mercury level. Kosher.

Farmed Norwegian Salmon

Ocean pens, Norway

Norway is considered one of the leaders in sustainable seafood aquaculture. Its long coastline with cold, clear water is the perfect setting for raising salmon. 

The industry is heavily regulated. For example, the salmon are raised in floating sea pens with a strict ratio of 2.5% fish to 97.5% water. They are fed an all-natural diet. They are fully processed within 4-6 hours after they've been harvested. And so on. It sets the standard for aquaculture excellence, which is revealed in its superior flavor. 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!
