Wild Striped Bass
Hook and line caught, East cost
The price of wild striped bass is finally the price is coming down. So take advantage of the low price while you can.
Forty years ago the East Coast striped bass fishery was nearly decimated by overfishing and pollution but the fishery is now well managed by the Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic Striped Bass.
Compared to farmed striped bass, the wild variety we have selected is larger, richer, and slightly sweet in flavor. It has a firm, large flake, and it can be baked, grilled, steamed, and sautéed. Whether you have mastered crispy skin, or would like to try it for the first time, striped bass skin works well. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

Fjord Sea Trout
Fjord-based aquaculture, Norway
This sea trout comes from an icy Norwegian fjord. The long, deep channel where the fish are raised was formed by successive glacial ice-flow erosions over the course of 2 million years. It contains a perfect mix of salt and fresh water. It's swift current, makes for a highly oxygenated water that these fish love. This trendy trout is the same species as rainbow trout, though—like wild salmon—sea trout flesh is deep red. It is sweeter than salmon, and its flavor tends to be rich because of the way the fat is stored.
Sea trout are farmed in uncrowded conditions and are fed sustainably, without chemicals or pesticides. They are good grilled, smoked, sautéed, and marinated. Registered by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. 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!
