Wild Edibles Sales Update

Good day Chefs and Buyers,
This morning we have fresh trap porgies, small 1lb Spanish Mackerel, and fluke all from Long Island boats just in late last night.
We have hand produced uni trays from Maine, uni is the edible portion of the sea urchin. Uni can be eaten raw, it makes a great addition to raw oysters, and adds an umami rich ocean flavor to risotto and sauces.
Dover sole is available in the most popular size of 18 to 20 ounces each. Flown in direct from the Holland auction these are great fish.
Wild striped bass prices are going up as landings are reduced, but the fish are certainly still worth it with bright red gills and very firm flesh.
Fresh Chilean turbot has arrived a fabulous flatfish that should be on more menus. The flesh is best described as a cross between halibut and dory with the best of both worlds. Awesome table commanding presence as a whole fish for two turbot never disappoints.
Also available fresh today: Lake Erie whitefish, clean tasting aquacultured carp (gefilte anyone?), day boat cod from Martha's Vineyard, Portuguese sardines, a handful of cuttlefish, and Organic farmed king salmon from British Columbia, Canada.
Do not forget about our unique frozen line up including: frozen at sea black cod, nitrogen fz "Bruce Gore" wild coho salmon, soft shelled crayfish and jumbo spot prawns.
