MSC Haddock

Net trawl or hook and line caught, Iceland

Haddock, cod, and pollock—though all related—have different flavors and textures. Haddock (which we are featuring this week) tends to be slightly thinner than cod and has a finer flake. Most chefs prefer the flavor of haddock to others in the cod family, and some compare its taste to that of halibut.

Haddock is excellent for fish and chips (see recipe here), but if you'd prefer a healthier option, try simply roasting it with fresh vegetables. MSC Certified, Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Moderate mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $18.00

  • 8 oz. for $9.00*

Arctic Char

Land-based aquaculture, Iceland

Everyone loves this fish! Raw arctic char, like salmon, has orange to pale pink flesh, but when cooked it fades to white. Despite the color of its raw flesh, char is genetically closer to trout than salmon. Its flavor is clean and mild, its texture is delicate, and it is full of heart-healthy omega-3’s.

The fat content of arctic char makes it adaptable to most cooking methods; it can be grilled, sautéed, broiled, or even smoked. According to Seafood Watch, farmed arctic char is "an excellent 'Best Choice'." Low mercury level. Kosher.

  • 1 lb. for $17.00

  • 8 oz. for $8.50*

Fair Trade Shimp (Frozen, Raw, Peeled and Deveined)

Supera net caught, Baja, Mexico, 26/30 per pound

Finally a shrimp you can feel good about eating (and they are delicious, too)!  Here's why: Instead of dealing with giant gas-powered trawlers, Del Pacifico works with artisanal fishermen who use small sail-powered boats (pangas), which are slightly larger than a rowboat and have a spectacular sail. (Score one.)

The wind and tide guide the net. Because they operate on such a small scale the fishermen can remove bycatch and return it to the water alive resulting in the lowest bycatch in the shrimping industry! (Score two.) 

The boats are small and have little storage area so they can't be at sea for long periods. The shrimp are blast-frozen within hours of capture. What is more, Fair Trade certification guarantees that there are no human rights abuses and that a percentage of the profit is returned to the community. (Score three and four.) 


1 lb. (about 16 to 20 per pound) for $20.00

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
