Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good morning all,
The week seems to be getting off to a slow start, but the weekend is sure to be a upon us all quick. If you have special needs for your Valentines menu contact us soon to secure your fish. Some selections sell out quick, and we are already very tight on Dover Sole ( If you ordered already you are covered). Chilean Turbot is likely the next fish to make the 86 list, do not miss out.
Today we have bright and clean Mahi-mahi from Panama. Dayboat Haddock (say no more), monk and skate from Massachusetts. Beautiful jumbo sized black sea bass from Rhode Island. Golden tile (4-6lbs) from Barnegut light is delightfully gleaming. Icelandic cod is unnaturally fresh and a few wolf fish are left awaiting your creative kitchen.
Our featured oyster today goes by the name Skookum: these oysters are being raised in a traditional French manner (Rack & Bag) in the Little Skookum Inlet part of Puget Sound near Olympia, WA. The shell is strong and easy to open. A well formed very deep cupped oysters, Skookum oysters have an attractive shell with a contrasting appearance due to the high mineral content of the water. Skookum oysters are plump, almost crunchy, and salty with a smokey sweet finish.
"Happy and successful cooking doesn't rely only on know-how; it comes from the heart, makes great demands on the palate and needs enthusiasm and a deep love of food to bring it to life."
~ Georges Blanc
Have a great day,
