Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
 
Mid week arrivals are mostly local specials, and we are excited to offer some truly spectacular and extra large U/8 dry sea scallops from "Elephant Trunk" this area is located just southeast of New Jersey and these are true dayboat scallops. They are jelly, and we mean that in the best way! We have all other sizes of dry seas available if you do not need something this big. U/8's will only be available on a limited basis. Also from Jersey we have fancy Spanish mackerel 2 lb average, and good enough to enjoy raw.
 
Porgie landings in Long Island have been good lately and we have been able to select the freshest trap fish available. These local breams are still very much under valued, yet the meat is on par with many more expensive and imported species. If big 'doormat' fluke are your thing (think small halibut) then we have some sushi grade 6+ fluke from the Island that are still in rigor.
 
Many of you have shown great support for fisherman from the Gulf of Mexico and we have some great offerings to help you continue that support. From Alabama and Louisiana we are getting great fresh picked lump and jumbo lump crab meat. From Pensacola, Florida domestic American red snappers could not look nicer with bright eyes and fire engine red gills. 
 
Expected arrivals Thursday include: Amberjack, Corvina, Grouper, Dover sole and Sardines.
