Net pens, Vietnam
Barramundi, reportedly a name given to the fish by indigenous Australians, means large-scaled silver fish. It is also called Passion Fish. In an Australian Aborigine Dreamtime legend, part creation story, the barramundi transforms itself into the moon.
Barramundi is comparable to wild sea bass. It is recommended for its sweet, buttery flavor and is packed with omega-3 fatty acids. This barramundi is farmed in Vietnam under strict conditions. Believe it or not, because of its low environmental impact—low use of chemicals, effluents monitoring, and transparency—Seafood Watch rates this Vietnamese-farmed barramundi a "Best Choice." Low mercury. Kosher.

Walleye is often called "walleye pike" but it is actually a member of the perch family. Something to remember when choosing walleye is that its pearlescent eyes are not an indication of spoilage but rather a result of light sensitivity that allows the fish to see more clearly at night.
Walleye, which has a sweet flavor and a small flake, can be prepared in virtually any way. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Higher 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!
