New Fish Merchandizing and Weekend Specialties 6.5.14

In honor of another nice finfish lineup, we thought it would be an appropriate time to formally introduce you to our new fish merchandising setup.  Many of you have hopefully already noticed a reshuffling and some of your standbys might be in different locations.  Not to worry!  We’re now merchandising fish based off of flavor and flake size, so if you find yourself in the mild/large flake section looking for Cod and it’s not available, great alternatives are right in front of you.  How cool is that?!   Categories include:  Strong/Large Flake, Strong/Fine Flake, Moderate/Meaty, Moderate/Flakey, Mild/Large Flake, Mild/ Fine Flake.  All of this is designed to help you navigate the world of fish with ease.  Happy shopping!

Copper River Sockeye and Weekend Specialties 5.29.14

Sockeyes are back and the fish displays have their characteristic orange and red hue now that the wild salmon season is fully upon us.  More so than wild kings, sockeyes are one of those quintessential summer seafood items, and we have a beautiful run of deep red fleshed fish coming in for the weekend.

Hawaiian Fish and Weekend Specialties 5.15.14

Just got word that one of our tuna and swordfish suppliers set aside some excellent Hawaiian finfish for us with our standing Swordfish and Tuna order.  Uku (Grey Snapper, above), Wahoo, Blue Marlin, and Barracuda are all on a flight as you read this, arriving just in time for the weekend.  All of these options will stand up well to a variety of cooking methods, but the grill is the clear favorite.  If you’re not interested in these, there are plenty of other great finfish in the house this weekend, so come on by and get inspired.
