Halibut

Long line caught, Alaska

This will be your last chance to get Alaskan halibut for the season! It's a perennial favorite—its flesh is thick, meaty, and firm, and its flavor is sweet and rich. In addition to those excellent qualities, it is a versatile fish that can be cooked in many ways—grilled, roasted, broiled, you name it. 

Halibut is among the largest fish in the sea—it is certainly the largest flat fish. Its usual size ranges from 20 to 40 pounds, but it can grow to 8 feet long—as a look at Instagram will show you. These days halibut is strictly managed by the Pacific Halibut Commission. Seafood Watch rates it a “Good Alternative,” and it is MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) Certified. Moderate mercury level. Kosher.
1 lb. for $28.50

Lake Whitefish

Trap net caught, Lake Erie, Cananda

Our "local" fish for this week is tender whitefish, which thrives in the cold, deep waters of the Great Lakes.

Whitefish is a reliable all-around fish. It has large flakes and is thick, rich, and versatile, and 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. Even the simplest of preparations, a quick sauté with lemon and butter, will satisfy completely. See our recipes page for more inspiration. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Low mercury. Kosher.
1 lb. for $12.75

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!
Net weight: 6 ounces for $6.00
