Peconic Bay Scallops and Weekend Specialties 11.9.17 November 09 2017 Posted in

We know, it’s the 2nd bay scallop e-mail in the past three weeks. Please excuse our exuberance, but when you live and breathe seafood, there are few things that get us more excited than the start of the northeastern bay scallop season.  It’s Mother Nature’s way of giving us a little treat before the cold weather fully moves in.  A couple of weeks ago, we saw the Massachusetts season come on line and this week, the Peconic Bay season has started.  While the Martha’s Vineyards and Nantucket Bays have more notoriety, in our humble opinion you just can’t beat the Peconic bay scallop.  The Peconic lies 90 miles due east of New York City and these deliciously sweet scallops are shipped to us on the harvest day, ensuring an immedicably fresh product.  Early indications suggest the season is off to a great start.  We’ll be getting new shipments on Tuesday and Thursday (shucked and live) while supplies last.

Martha's Vineyard Bay Scallops and Weekend Specialties 10.26.17 October 25 2017 Posted in

Fall is full of great seasonal seafood items from Florida stone crabs to plump oysters. The product that always gets us most excited though are north eastern US bay scallops.  From Peconics to the Cape, there is nothing sweeter.  This week we have live Cape Cod bay scallops and shucked Martha’s Vineyard scallops in the market.  While the season typically goes from November to March, most of the product is spoken for by the end of the year so don’t miss out on these rare treats!

Belon Oyster Season and Weekend Specialties September 27 2017 Posted in

Fall marks the beginning of peak oyster season as oysters use the drop in water temps to start feeding and fattening to survive through winter.  The end of September always brings a welcome addition to our lineup with the start of Maine Flat (aka Belon Oyster) season.  We source our belons from a hard-shell clam fishery in Casco Bay, off of Harpswell Island.  These belons are wild and not for the faint of heart, with super metallic taste.

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.

Apalachicola Bay Pompano and Weekend Specialties 4.13.17 April 12 2017 Posted in

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.

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.
