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.

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.

Sea Urchin Fest and Weekend Specialties March 01 2017 Posted in

We’re going all out on sea urchin this weekend.  In addition to live Santa Barbara sea urchin, we’ll also have live sea urchin from Maine.  These sea urchins are hand harvested in the cold clear waters off the coast of Santa Barbara, CA and the Gulf of Maine, and will be at peak freshness this weekend.  Both are rich, creamy and buttery, but unique in their own right.  Stop on by this weekend and compare.  May the best urchin win!

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.

Open Blue Cobia and Holiday Hours 12.15.16 December 14 2016 Posted in

Open blue cobia is in the shop this week and is another example farmed fish done right.  These beauties are quite versatile.  Their skin produces wonderfully crisp fillets, while their nice fattiness lends well to any raw application.  More importantly though, you can feel good about eating this fish.  Raised in open ocean net pens 7 miles off the coast of Panama in the Caribbean sea, these fish are fed a fishmeal diet from sustainable sources and at no point are fed any hormones, contaminants, colorants or pesticides.  Moreover, the pen densities are super low (see above picture) allowing the fish to swim freely and the pens are designed to move with the current, producing virtually no nutrient or waste buildup in the surrounding environment.  Come on by and grab some for the weekend!

 

Christmas is next week, but 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.
