Cape Cod Triggerfish and Weekend Specialties July 18 2017 Posted in

It’s rare triggerfish make it up to Cape Cod as they normally inhabit waters from North Carolina to the Caribbean.  We won’t complain when we find out fishermen in the Cape have it though!  These fish are rare in that there isn’t much of a commercial fishery for them.  Don’t let that fool you though, triggerfish are excellent eating fish, with firm white flesh that is quite sweet in flavor and similar to blue crab.  The flake is small and the meat is delicate and moist.

Wild Salmon Season and Weekend Specialties 6.1.17 May 31 2017 Posted in

Wild salmon season is starting to get in gear.  The famed Copper River has opened in the past two weeks and other venerable spawning grounds are opening soon or have opened already.  There’s nothing better than warm weather and gorgeous, fatty, wild salmon that so exemplifies the start of June.  While the overall season is projecting to be a little bleaker than last year’s huge catch, we’ll be seeing plenty of wild kings, sockeyes and cohos throughout the summer.  This week we have some gorgeous kings caught right off of Vancouver Island as they make their way to spawning grounds in rivers off the coast.  Come on by for the season’s first taste!

Wreckfish and Weekend Specialties 5.3.17 May 02 2017 Posted in

Wreckfish season is back (April 16- Jan 14) and we have some great product in-house now.  Although Wreckfish are found all along the East Coast, most commercial landings are from the Charleston Bump, a deep-water bank located 80 to 100 miles off the cost of South Carolina.  Wreckfish enjoy deep-water habitats around sheltered structures and are caught using heavy-duty hydraulic reels with 1/8 inch cables.  The fishery is well managed to ensure long term sustainability.  While they can be tough to catch, the result is well worth the effort.  Wreck fish have a large flake, sweat flavor and nice skin that crisps well.

For the first time ever, we’ll have fresh, live New Zealand greenshell mussels in house this weekend.  Due to the long travel time, these mussels typically come in frozen on the half shell.  Fortunately for us, we’ve been able to source live ones directly.  These mussels are much bigger than your typical blue mussel (upwards of 4 inches long) and have plump meats and a sweet and tender taste.  Don’t sleep on these!

Icelandic Cod Cheeks and Weekend Specialties 4.20.17 April 19 2017 Posted in

Cod cheeks, once a fisherman’s secret, are quickly becoming mainstream.  Most cod comes to market H&G (headed and gutted) leaving the best parts behind.  Traditionally, fisherman and processors have held on to the tasty morsels of meat that come from the jaw of cod fish due to how tender, sweet and moist they are.  Lucky for you (and us) we’ve been able to source some great ones this weekend.  Come on down and see what everyone is talking about.

Good Friday is tomorrow, which means seafood is a must.  If you’re not a believer, you shouldn’t let that stop you from doing an all fish day!  We’ve got an amazing lineup of seafood and tons of great options.  Highlighting the list is gillnet caught pompano from the Gulf coast of Florida.  For those of you not in the know, pompano are prized for their firm, rich flesh and mild, sweet distinctive, full-bodied flavor.  Commercial harvests of these fish are typically small and most is consumed in Florida, so don’t sleep on this one!

Soft Shells and Weekend Specialties 4.6.17 April 05 2017 Posted in

We thought they would never come.  Finally, Soft Shells will be in the store this Friday and until they’re sold out.  For those of you who don't know, soft shells on the east coast refer to Blue Crabs which have recently molted their old exoskeleton and are typically available from April to September. They begin to molt when water temperatures rise and the soft shell season works its way from south to north with the first availability typically coming from Florida before the season begins in the in the Chesapeake Bay, where over 90% of the total Soft Shell catch comes from. Over its two to three year lifespan, a blue crab outgrows and sheds its shell about 20 times! Once the blue crab molts, it typically takes four days for its shell to harden and in between, as you may know, the shell is soft enough to eat (thus Soft Shells). Watermen harvest soft shell crabs as peelers (about to shed), rank peelers (within hours of shedding), and busters (in the process of shedding). Soft Shells are great sautéed in butter or fried up as soft shell crab sandwich, and all they need is a simple cleaning.

A nice treat this week in the form of ocean perch (AKA Acadian redfish).  This week’s ocean perch was caught by the F/V Tara Lynn in the Gulf of Maine.  These 1.5-3lb fish are prized for their lean, flakey, moist meat.  Perfect baked, fried, whole steamed or poached.

Jonah Crab Claws and Weekend Specialties 3.23.17 March 22 2017 Posted in

Our favorite crab cocktail is back!  Jonah Crabs have been unavailable for quite some time because no one’s been producing them.  Typically Maine lobstermen catch these crab and sell them to processors too cook the claws and pick the meat.  The one producer of the crab claws stopped production due to costs, but we’ve found someone else willing to produce these deliciously sweet cocktail claws.  We expect to see good availability from now until the early summer and then resuming back in the fall after the peak Maine lobster season is over.

Yellowtail Snapper and Weekend Specialties 3.9.17 March 08 2017 Posted in

We don’t mind saying, the specialty list this week is impressive.  From Hawaii to Maine there’s sure to be an item that will get you excited to cook this weekend.  The highlight of this week is yellowtail snapper caught in the US waters of the Gulf of Mexico.  Often living in the shadow of the more popular red snapper, this hook and line caught fish is nothing to sneeze at.  Yellowtail snapper produces a wonderfully crisp skin with sweet, moist, flaky meat.  We hope you’ll stop by and enjoy.

Shad and Weekend Specialties 2.23.17 February 22 2017 Posted in

In the seafood world, there is no better bellwether of spring than the start of the Shad season along the east coast.  Similar to wild salmon, Shad are most prized during the period of time before their spawn when their flesh has a higher fat content.  As the weather warms, Shad make their way up the east coast from Florida to Labrador during spring, lasting until right before June.  After June, shad become too oily and mushy.  While most fanatics prize Shad for their roe, the fillets are quite desirable as well, with sweet, delicate flesh, similar to herring.  Shad roe on the other hand is rich in flavor, with a firm, delicate texture.  Some call it the foie gras of the sea, but we’ll let you decide.

Norwegian Skrei Cod and Weekend Specialties 2.16.17 February 15 2017 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.

Maine Shrimp and Weekend Specialties 1.19.2017 January 18 2017 Posted in

Maine shrimp are back!  The 2017 season is actually shut down because of conservation concerns, however due to a scientific study on spawning, four shrimp trawlers and two trappers are collecting shrimp samples.  Lucky for us, we get to try these delicious, sweet roe-on shrimp that we’re once ubiquitous in winter time, but haven’t been around for 4 years now. Supplies are tight, so get in here fast!
