Mother's Day Weekend Specialties 5.7.15 May 06 2015 Posted in

Mother’s day is this weekend and if you’re planning on giving Mom the ultimate gift of a home cooked meal, we’ve got you covered.  Of course, taking Mom out for a nice steamed lobster dinner either in the store or at Cull&Pistol would probably be welcomed as well.  This week, we’re featuring fresh Sablefish (Black Cod) from Oregon.  Now you’re probably wondering what fresh has to do with anything (of course the quality is good).  In fact, Sablefish is one of two fish, Chilean Sea Bass is the other, that always come to us in a frozen state.  The high oil content and long distance traveled to get here make Sablefish an ideal candidate to be frozen at sea in whole form and the vast majority of all product not destined for the west coast comes in this way.   This week we’ve happened to get our hands on some great looking fresh product.  This Sablefish is line caught off the coast of Oregon and has a rich, mild, and distinctive flavor with soft, velvety texture and large, moist white flakes. 

Now onto the good stuff …
