Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
We have a good selection of special fish today that certainly deserve a home on your tables.
From Florida we have: Stone Crab claws, dayboat mahi, exceptional snapper, and flashy red grouper.
From the Carolinas we have: Spanish Mackerel, and weakfish.
We have a new mussel from Maine. The Pemaquid mussel is a raft raised full and plump meat mussel. Try a couple pounds and you will see the difference. Very comparable to so called "bouchot" mussels. Currently no one is producing a true Bouchot.You can read here -
Fluke prices are down and the fish are nice and firm. Maine shrimp are available again, as are Nantuckets with some slightly warmer temperatures allowing harvests.
Also available; Hiramasa, Wild Sturgeon, and Fresh Sable (black Cod from Alaska).
We are running a special on Dorade for the rest of the week at $4.95. These are beautiful 1-1.25 lb fish a perfect size for whole presentation.
"Genius is nothing but a greater aptitude for patience."
