Opah is back!

by Monte on Sep 10, 2016

Opah or moonfish is one of the most colorful of the commercial fish species available in Hawaii. A silvery-grey upper body color shades to a rose red dotted with white spots toward the belly. The moonfish’s large, round profile may be the origin of its name.
It’s firm rich meat turns an off white color when cooked. Most closely resembles marlin, tuna or shark in texture.
Suggested Preparations: Raw (sashimi), Broiled, Baked, Sautéed, Steamed, Smoked.



Long Neck also known as Ipswich clams or east coast "steamer clams"

by Monte on Sep 10, 2016

Virtually all our customers know what a clam is. But, many of our customers are unfamiliar with one of the best clams on the east coast – the “steamer clam”. Now, most places in the country, especially west coasters, call hard shell clams like the quahog or littleneck a steamer clam. But if you’re from the Northeast, you reserve that term for the soft/brittle shelled clam with the siphon that sticks out.

We’ve got these delicacies in for the 2nd week in a row. Last week 1 customer bought them all. So, this weekend, we only have 10 lbs to sell. As always, stop in early or just email/text or call and we’ll reserve some for you. If you’re looking for recipes online – google “longneck clam or ipswich clam”.



Halibut Cheeks!!!

by Monte on Sep 10, 2016

A halibut cheek is just what it sounds like – the cheek of the halibut! Located exactly where you think it would be, it’s the tender, grained muscle that opens and closes a halibut’s mouth as it makes its way in the world eating the smaller and slower fish that happen to cross its path. Each halibut possesses only two (comparatively) small cheeks, so they can be a bit hard to come by!

People who are cheek fans will argue to the death that the cheek is the very best part of the fish, and I have to agree that it is both delicious and special. There was a time in the not-so-distant past when the halibut cheeks were discarded with the carcass of the fish after the filets were removed, but when the level of delectability was discovered, word spread quickly and now they are in high demand and considered a treat.

Cheeks are quite mild in flavor (no ‘fishiness’), cook up tender and solid, and have a grain to them similar to a chicken breast or I think scallops might even be more accurate. We like to simply pan sear them, or poach them with a bit of white wine and butter, but they also can be tossed on the grill or baked in the oven with great success. I’ve had them dredged in seasoned flour and fried – AMAZING!

Get your order in now! We literally have dozens of cheeks from hundreds of pounds of halibut. It was “our turn” to get some from our supplier. We can vacuum pack and freeze them as well for later use! Of course – while supplies last!
