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.
We hope you'll stop by this weekend and take advantage! Stay tuned next Thursday for another edition of specialty items. Please note that occasionally items listed will not make it to our store due to weather or unforeseen supply issues.
