Fresh Local Wild King Salmon:
This King salmon was wild caught by local fisheries and fisher people just off the coast of Northern California. Uniquely delicious & filled with nutrients like Omega-3's, fresh local wild King salmon is both a wise and delicious choice. Wild King salmon has the highest fat content and most flavor compared to the other species of wild salmon (Coho, Chum, Sockeye, Pinks). In order to elicit optimal flavor from wild King salmon, it is always best practice to slightly undercook the king rather than to overcook it. For any cooking method, we recommend just under 10 minutes per inch of width.
This Alaskan Northern Halibut is wild caught by fisher people up in the Northern Pacific. Compared to local Pacific Halibut, Alaskan Halibut has a higher fat content which permits it to be more forgiving when grilling or searing. Halibut is a white fish with a mild flavor and a slightly sweet taste. Just like the King Salmon, it’s usually best to err on the side of undercooking it rather than overcooking. We recommend to stop cooking immediately after the internal flesh turns from translucent to opaque.
Generally speaking, Alaskan Halibut or North Pacific Halibut are responsibly caught. Fisheries use a bottom line to catch these fish and use circle hooks (instead of single or double barbed hooks) that decrease mortality rates when non-target animals are caught. Alaskan Halibut is managed by the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC) and has stated that its population has continued to grow since 2013. However, it is important to note that the population declined from 1997 to 2013.
Fanny Bay Oysters:
Fanny Bay’s oyster farms up in British Columbia are responsibly managed and regulated. They are grown in suspended bags in the ocean near Baynes Sound (off Vancouver Island), and then transferred to the intertidal area for hardening. The process of growing, hardening, and transporting oysters is strictly monitored and harvest locations and dates are labeled for full traceability. These oysters are larger than average, are salty with firm flesh and have a slightly sweet-ish finish
Lobster Tails (Frozen, Premium Product):
Back by popular demand, these American lobster tails are from the cold, Atlantic Ocean off of Maine and Canadian shores. These lobsters are caught using traps and are ranked as a “Good Alternative” product by Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program. These American lobster tails are a good alternative to imported spiny lobsters from the Carribean and South America sources. They are frozen to preserve their sweet, succulent meat - ready to be prepared grilled, broiled or stuffed.
