Oysters: Rappahannock River Oyster Company is packing some of the best local oysters! These farm-raised oysters are grown in Topping, Virginia and have been since 1989. These oysters are deeply cupped and mineral-rich, with an understated saltiness that lets the oyster’s natural flavor come through, our Rappahannock oysters offer up a sweet, buttery, full-bodied taste with a refreshingly clean, crisp finish. With 15 ppm (parts per million) salinity, they give you just a hint of sea flavor.
Clams: H.M. Terry has provided us with littleneck clams for years. These clams are roughly 1" in diameter and are perfect in any pasta dish or for a clams casino. They are farm-raised in the ocean-filtered Atlantic waters of Hog Island Bay, VA, these clams are fresh and tender with the perfect amount of salty, sweet flavor. The very best seaside clams that Virginia has to offer.
Grouper: Wild Seafood is a premier boutique fish house located in Madeira Beach, Florida, that sources the highest quality, sustainably harvested, traceable DOMESTIC seafood to environmentally conscious consumers. Each fish is tagged after being caught with a code for tracing where your fish was caught, what boat caught the fish and who the Captain of the boat is. They will give you the whole story and at the same time helps keep American fishermen at work providing high-quality fish to you and your families.
Tuna: Tuna fishing has been tight with the recent full moon. Pelagic species such as tuna, mahi, and sword swim in deeper waters, up to 665 feet deep, and tend to feed during the day. When the moon is bright they cannot distinguish between the day and night and feed during the night, making them harder to catch as the fishermen fish during the day. These tunas came to us from Sri Lanka and the Indian Ocean.
Crab Meat: The Maryland season, though open, is proving quite challenging this year. Labor at the picking houses is tough to come by and only one or two houses have enough pickers to provide any sizable amounts of fresh-picked crab meat. The flight from Venezuela did make it out this week and we will have fresh Venezuelan jumbo lump and lump for the week.
Arctic Char: We are offering Arctic Char, farm-raised in the frigid waters of Iceland. The reddish meat of char is similar in color to salmon, as char is in the salmon family, however, you will notice right away the richness of the flavor as more pronounced than that of its cousin. The fillets are skin on and smaller than those of salmon, with whole fish ranging from 4-6 pounds as compared to the 10-14 pounds of the whole salmon.
Bronzini: or European Sea Bass, coming to us from the beautiful waters of the Aegean Sea between Turkey and Greece. These white meat fillets will be in the 5-6 ounce range with the skin on. It has delicate, white flesh and a mild, almost sweet flavor. We are cutting fish that range in size from 600-800 grams (1.5-1.8#) giving you a perfect one portion-sized fillets.
Florida Stone Crab Claws: These were so popular last week we'd be remiss if we did not offer them up this week. We are priced the same on Large and Mediums and have an inventory of both in house.
