Blowfish Tails and Mother's Day Specialties 5.5.16 May 04 2016 Posted in

First Blowfish tails of the year are in this weekend, marking another unofficial start to summer. Rest assured, we’re not talking about the poisonous Fugu. These blowfish tails come from U.S blowfish (or Sea Squab) and are perfectly harmless. They’re prized for their fillets, which resemble tiny chicken drumsticks, with a single bone running between two morsels of flesh. The meat is lean and white, and meaty rather than flaky.

Mother’s day is this weekend and we have plenty of great options for the special day so come on by and make mom proud by showing off your cooking skills!

Fresh Anchovies and Weekend Specialties 4.14.16 April 14 2016 Posted in

There is so much more to the anchovy than just the canned variety.  We happen to think a true fresh anchovy, while hard to find in the U.S., will turn anyone who tries them into a believer.  Fresh anchovies have a soft, smooth texture; and rich, distinctive, lightly oily flavor with edible bones, perfect for eating whole.  We have a limited amount of fresh anchovies from the Mediterranean in this Thursday and they’re the perfect seafood to bring in spring.  Check out this very easy, yet delicious fried anchovy recipe.

We have a very special addition to the specialty list this weekend.  Maine Shrimp!  The 2016 season was actually shut down due to conservation concerns, however due to a scientific study on spawning, four shrimp trawlers and two trappers are collecting shrimp samples until mid-April.  Lucky for we all get to try these delicious, sweet roe-on shrimp that we’re once ubiquitous in winter time, but haven’t been around for 3 years now. Supplies are tight, so get in here fast!

Shad Roe and Weekend Specialties 2.25.16 February 24 2016 Posted in

Spring is finally in the air!  While it’s still quite cold in some parts of the US and its still February, Shad have begun their annual migration up the coast and into rivers along the eastern seaboard where they conduct their yearly spawn.  While their fillets have a delicious, oily, rich flavor, their best known for their roe, which some aficionados liken to the “Foie Gras of the Sea.”  Lucky for you we have a small shipment coming in this Friday.  Shad roe are prefect pan fried in butter and lemon like in this recipe for pan-fried shad roe.

Skrei Cod and Weekend Specialties 2.4.16 February 03 2016 Posted in

Skrei Cod are in full force off the coast of Norway right now and we should expect to see consistent supply over the next month. Skrei is a Norwegian cod that migrates from the Barents Sea to its spawning grounds off Norway's snow covered, mountainous North coast. In order to be classified as Skrei, the cod have to be fully mature (typically 5+ years), and in pristine condition (i.e. no scratches, bruising or other injuries). All of this means Skrei has a fresh, clean flavor with large, smooth white flakes and a firm texture. It's cod at its finest! To top it off, the Skrei fishery is MSC certified for sustainability.

Try this great receipe this weekend with Skrei. Delicate, tender, flaky and meaty cod is paired with small briny clams in a verdant parsley and garlic sauce

Mauritius Redfish and Weekend Specialties 1.28.16 January 27 2016 Posted in

We all need a little escape from last weekend’s snow dump.  If you’re not on a beach right now, we’d highly recommend a figurative vacation in the form of Mauritius Redfish.  On the gorgeous island of Mauritius, innovative fish farmers are raising a delicious redfish.  Mauritius Redfish are given nutritious, sustainable feed and plenty of room to grown.  No chemicals are used and artisans conduct daily dives to check on the health and welfare of the redfish and surrounding environment.  These practices yield a high quality fish with a delicate flavor and rich texture. 

Sub redfish for striped bass in this great roasted striped bass with olive tapenade and star fruit recipe 

Of course, if you don’t feel like cooking, stop on by Cull & Pistol and get the market fish, which will feature Mauritius Redfish all weekend.

Haddock and Weekend Specialties 1.14.16 January 13 2016 Posted in

While New York is undoubtedly a cod town, perhaps we should take some lessons from our friends up north in New England and start to embrace Haddock a little more.  Everyone has seemingly forgotten that haddock are the most prized member of the cod family because of their delicate flavor and melt-in-your-mouth texture.  If you suddenly feel as if you’re missing out, never fear, we have a great run of haddock coming in this weekend from the Gulf of Maine!

Pacific Saury and Weekend Specialties 1.7.15 January 06 2016 Posted in

Happy New Year to all.  We’ve been lacking in the blog posting due to the holidays, but we’re coming strong for the New Year.  This week we’ll have some amazing Pacific Saury from Japan.  Sauries are small with dark, meaty, rich-flavored flesh that provides bone-free fillets.  They’re most abundant in the late autumn and winter and are caught using Japanese technique of attracting them by lights and scoop-netting them.  Sauries are great on the grill, but also stand up well to a nice braise.

Wreckfish, Holiday Hours and Ordering Polices and Weekend Specialties 12.17.15 December 16 2015 Posted in

Wreckfish season will be over in a few weeks and we have one last final run coming in this week so take advantage as it won’t be back until mid-April.  Wreckfish have thick, mild flavor fillet with skin well suited to pan searing. 

In other, perhaps more important news, Christmas is next week and we’re already in full gear here at The Lobster Place making sure we have a full selection of the freshest and finest seafood available for all of your holiday festivities.  The usual suspects will be on hand as well as the following specialties: Live blue crabs, live Dungeness, stone crab claws, anchovies, haddock, john dory, kampachi, Atlantic mackerel, tuna belly, uni trays, caviar, lobsters, and live peconic bay scallops.

 It’s also worth mentioning for those of you who are behind on the holiday shopping (ahem) it’s not too late to get gift cards and seafood kits sent to friends and family.  Stay tuned next week for a complete list of Christmas specialties. In the meantime, check out our holiday hours and ordering polices below as well as this weekend’s specialties.

Live Sea Urchin and Weekend Specialties 12.3.15 December 02 2015 Posted in

We’ve had a good amount of live sea urchin over the past couple months, but as we approach the colder months, the quality has gotten better and better as evidenced in the above picture.  These sea urchin were harvested by hand off the coast of California and produce uni with an incredibly salty ocean scent and sweet, buttery taste.  Enjoy this grade A sea urchin weekly from Wednesday-Sunday depending on deliveries.

In honor of sea urchin, check out this very easy, but incredibly delicious uni butter recipe.
