Opah and Weekend Specialties 6.12.14

Nothing prettier than a whole Opah.  The one pictured above, came in at a whopping 113lbs from Hawaii!  Opah has long been regarded as good luck and can be found worldwide, but most commonly around the Hawaiian Islands.  They are most abundant from April to August, but are always a bit difficult to source because they don’t swim in schools.  Opah are most commonly caught as by-catch by Pacific tuna longliners.  Despite the difficulty in sourcing it, Opah is well worth the trouble due to its rich, creamy texture and firm, fatty flesh.  Perfect on the grill with strong seasonings or lightly seared tataki style.

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.
