Wild Edible Seafood Update

Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
 
We cannot say enough about soft shelled cray fish. This is an item that is sure to entice your guests. They are tasty when simply fried up, so with some culinary creativity they are sure to astound. http://tinyurl.com/y3uheex  Until soft crabs show up strong and reasonably priced in a month or so these might be worth a look
.
 
Fresh fish selections in today include:
  • Suzuki sea bass, Australian farmed and sustainable, 5-7lbs h&g http://www.cleanfish.com/pdfs/info_sheet_suzuki.pdf
  • Wild troll caught King salmon, say no more
  • Chilean Turbot, cookie cutter perfect
  • Uber-fresh whitebait, eperlain if you prefer
  • Mahi, iridescent and rigid today
Pemaquid oysters are one of our new favorites. Since some Massachusetts producers have been unable to supply the quality and quantities needed we have expanded our oyster selection to include more variety and better products. Pemaquid oysters from Maine are the answer to everything we like in an east coast oyster. Meaty and full of briny liquor this oyster is clean and refreshing. Grown in the remote protected Damariscotta River this artisanal operation ensures the shells are firm and deep cupped. Nicely cocktail sized averaging 3-4 inches, and easy to open. The cold clean waters of Maine burst from the Pemaquid oyster, give them a try we know you will agree.
