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.

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 $13.50

  • 8 oz. for $6.75*

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
