Whether grilled, broiled, baked, poached, or kabobed, swordfish is a favorite. Swordfish’s meaty texture and mild flavor are two reasons for its popularity. In addition to good taste, swordfish offers a low-fat, low-calorie choice for health-conscious consumers. And don’t forget the heart-healthy benefits of swordfish: rich in omega-3 fatty acids and other vitamins and minerals.
Notes from our buyer
Copper River Salmon
We should see Copper River and other sockeyes in the market through July, but this will all depend on Mother Nature. There are sockeyes coming from other areas like Prince William Sound, so if the price for true Copper River sockeye is too good to be true, it probably is.
Our vendor on Mediterranean mussels will not be producing for a while. We will inform everyone when production starts again.
Make sure you are buying what you think you are buying. Some people are selling a 30 pound box/sack of oysters and calling it 100-count. Count them and you will see that there are not always 100 oysters in there, and they are not graded. Contact your sales rep with questions.
Trout 6 oz Natural Cut
We will start bringing in this product as a great lunch item for your menu or special board. Is has a great presentation and good food cost.
Beautiful farm-raised Texas striped bass is a perfect sustainable option for any menu! The fish is kept below 38 degrees from the time it is harvested from the water to the time it hits your door.
East Coast Soft Shells
Soft-shell crabs will be here for the weekend. We should have Jumbos and Whales.
We have some really nice halibut with great prices. The season only lasts a little while, so get it while it lasts.
Redfish production is tight again. We are receiving as much as we can from the farm, but they are not able to harvest all we are ordering. Drum is an excellent alternative.
Summer is here and drum prices are up. The product is beautiful and still at a nice price, just a little more than before.
Prices are moving back up a bit with tuna catches being a little off. We are coming up on a full moon on July 2nd, so keep your fingers crossed for better catches.
Mahi has tightened up this week. Very little product available and prices are high.
The season is upon us and availability is strong.
American Red Snapper
This product is tight for a couple of reasons – the weather in the gulf is rough because of the storm, a lot of boats are shrimping, and some have filled their quotas.
We will be receiving some steelhead for the weekend.
We will have a nice shot of marlin for the weekend.
Catfish prices will drop next week. Check out our prices if you are not currently using us. Our catfish is farmed raised here in Texas.
Prices are dropping a little with the new areas opening, but not much.
Scottish Salmon Fillets
Prices are steady, and the product is excellent.
Mongchong, Opah, and Barracuda
Looking for something from Hawaii??? We have a great partner over there that supplies us with fantastic fish from the Hawaiian waters.
