Notes from our buyer
We will have Coho this week. This is a seasonal product, so make sure you are maximizing this fantastic product on your menus while it is available. Please let your Frugé Seafood sales representative know your needs.
Several varieties of east coast oysters are available. Ask your sales rep about your options, and they can also assist you with flavor profiles. Blue Points are still not available. This situation should rectify itself by the end of next week.
We have beautiful domestic tilefish available for your feature boards.
Redfish is a great farmed product for your menu.
We have beautiful fish direct from Alaska.
Cod, Sole, and Haddock
We bring these delicate fish direct to our customers from Boston and only order what you need in order to provide you with a beautiful, fresh product every time. Get your pre-orders in early.
Chilean salmon prices are improving. We are expecting the trend to continue through the wild salmon season. We are also getting in large whole salmon from the North Sea(country of origin can be Scotland, Faroe Islands, or Norway). The shortages in Europe appear to have stabilized a little as well, but we are only seeing moderate improvements in price. Ask your rep about New Zealand Farmed Ora King Salmon.
The first three weeks of September will be the worst for oysters. Summer is here and oysters are coming out of private leases. The private leases in Texas will be transplanting oysters eight days between September 1st and September 19th. On the days oysters are being transplanted, no oysters are allowed to be harvested. This will put a huge strain on an already tight market. We will continue to support our loyal customers, as best we can, through this challenging time.
American red snapper continues to be tight, but we do have them. We also have beautiful lanes and yellowtail snapper.
Though price has increased, demand for scallops has not decreased in the market. We continue to have the larger product available but also offer a U/12 product for customers who are more price-sensitive.
Tuna prices are still up, but we are seeing some great quality fish.
Mahi prices are going up and supply is getting worse. There aren’t large quantities of the fish, but our great suppliers keep us with product.
Grouper is a little tight this week as the fishermen seek out octopus, but we do have the product. Ask your sales rep about the pre-cut Mexican fillets; these are great for your more price sensitive dishes.
Our farmed striped bass is from right here in Texas. It is harvested, transported, prepared, and shipped under controlled temps. This increases the quality and shelf life for you.
Many of you may be considering black drum as an alternative to redfish. The product is available, but can be limited in the summer, so make sure we know your needs.
We are seeing some domestic meat now. Get your pre-orders in, and we will do our best to fill them.
Our catfish is farmed right here in Texas. As the summer heat continues, the larger sizes of fish are tightening up a bit, so if you use a large fillet, please make sure we know your needs.
Mongchong, Opah, and Barracuda
We have a variety of seabass options. We have H&G sized 20-30 kg as well as fillets cut from that size. Get with your sales rep for details.
We offer a full range of sizes of live lobsters straight from Maine and Canada. Order today, and we will get them to you tomorrow
The low water supply this summer has created a shortage on the larger red meat fish from Idaho. The water supply is back up now, and the product will be more plentiful towards the end of September.
