Flounder, Halibut, Fluke & Sole: Flatfish Make the World Go ‘Round

Flounder, Halibut, Fluke & Sole: Flatfish Make the World Go ‘Round

As far as flavor and preparation, most of the commercially-sold flat fish are mild and delicate, they vary in texture, sweetness and size. Since most are tender in texture the smaller whole fish and fillets are perfect for the pan...Larger, meatier fish like Channel Flounder, Fluke or Halibut are great to steam, bake or grill. Whole smaller flounder or fillets are also great to stuff (crab stuffing is a great flavor with sole or flounder). I love all of the flatfish that we sell but the sweetest, nuttiest, most delicious of all, for me, is Grey Sole. These fish come from the gulf of Maine and Georges Bank. Snow-white flesh and so good flash sautéed or stuffed and baked. We see lovely Grey sole this time of year, in fact there must have been a lot of fish landed this week 'cause the price will be the best we've seen in months!

For a Healthful 2017: Eat More Fish!

For a Healthful 2017: Eat More Fish!

It's a new year and many of us are thinking about lightening up and changing our eating habits for the better. Old habits die hard. The bad choices we've all made over the years aren't that easy to change. We all know that fish and shellfish are the healthiest of choices—full of protein, essential vitamins, minerals and those incredible Omega 3 fatty acids. Fish is naturally low in calories...its fat is the "good" polyunsaturated fat and we know we would be doing our minds and bodies a big favor to eat more of it.

Festa dei Sette Pesci (Feast of the Seven Fishes)

Festa dei Sette Pesci (Feast of the Seven Fishes)

Chef Mario Batali says that La Vigilia is "What Italians do when they say they're fasting," which is kind of hysterical because this penitential fasting tradition has been turned into a major feast. For those of us who were born into less delicious culinary traditions, there's no reason that we can't have some fun and try our own feast of the seven fishes on Christmas Eve.

Happy as a Clam

Happy as a Clam

Man, do we love, LOVE clams! Steamed Ipswich clams (steamers), cherrystones on the half shell, manila clams over spaghetti, stuffed quahogs, fried belly clams, red or white clam sauce, clam chowder, clams casino, Portuguese clams Cataplana, fried Maine razor clams, thin-sliced giant geoduck clams for sushi—the list goes on and the possibilities are endless. There are over 2,000 varieties in the world and the handful that we offer are a pretty good representation of what's out there.
