Wild Edibles Seafood Update

Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
 
Today at Wild Edibles we have brought in a few interesting specials to help get your week started. Local silver dory starts our offerings. Silver dory is similar to John Dory minus the spot and producing a thinner fillet. Pricing is very friendly for these beautiful swimmers that were caught on a short trip Jersey boat. Cod from Martha's Vineyard and Chatham boats are exceptional today. Small amounts of large monk and skates were landed on the same trip and are stellar as well. Black sea bass of all sizes are still in good supply, but wild striped bass has tightened up and we expect very little to be available until mid week. Prices for these limited wild striped bass may climb until we see some new openings. 
 
Wild Cobia is an infrequent offering, and today we have a few 30# plus sized fish available. The lush taste of this fish can take bold and vibrant sauces, or stand alone with just the right amount of salt. Cobia, although not related to in any way sword or mahi has flesh that has qualities of both. Rich and firm and an excellent choice for the grill.  Speaking of sword we have some marvelous peach colored "pumpkin" sword. Give us a call on this fine fish so we can make sure we send you the right sword.
 
Other fin fish specials include: Triple tail from Costa Rica, Australis Barramundi, farmed striped bass, wild salmon, and fluke.
 
Todays featured oyster is from Greenpoint, NY, Pipes Cove oysters make a much anticipated return after a long hiatus. We are very pleased to be able to offer this Long Island gem once again. The tidal areas that are the home of these humble bivalves is rich in nutrients and gives these oysters a very plump meat in a confined and well formed cup.
