Albacore Tuna

Hook and line caught, Washington coast

There are many different kinds of tuna. Albacore tuna, which differs greatly from ahi tuna in color, is the tuna used for tinned tuna (95% of all albacore harvested is canned). Also, to quote Wild Pacific Seafood, "there are significant differences in methods of catching, sustainability, and the product itself." 

Of all the tunas, albacore is the lightest in color. It has the highest level of omega-3s and is among the mildest. Because of its light color, albacore is often called the other white meat. The phrase "chicken of the sea" was meant to call light-fleshed meat to mind. (Sorry, Charlie!)

Albacore has a steak-like texture that makes it great for grilling and searing. It is listed by Seafood Watch as a "Best Choice." Moderate mercury. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $15.00

  • 8 ounces for $7.50*

Dab (American Plaice)

Trawl caught, East Coast

This week we are also featuring Dabs, more formally known as American Plaice. This usually small flatfish (flounder) is increasingly popular on the East Coast. It has flaky white meat and a mild flavor. Its texture makes it perfect for fish and chips. Thus it will come as no surprise that most of the East Coast catch is exported to the UK.

Plaice fillets average 6 to 10 ounces and will come skinned. Seafood Watch rates American Plaice a "Good Alternative." Low mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $18.50

  • 8 oz. for $9.25*

-- Summer Baked Plaice (BBC Good Food)

-- Plaice Fish Fingers (Fish Is The Dish)

* A $10.00 minimum applies to all orders. If your total order is less than $10.00, please contact us, and we'll place the order for you.

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
