What’s for Dinner? Just Wing it! (Skate Wing that is)

Here’s another underutilized treasure for ya—skate! When we first started selling it back in the ’80s, most skate was used for lobster bait,...

Mackerel: “The Perfect Fish!”

Mackerel: “The Perfect Fish!”

I've always called Atlantic Mackerel a true "fish lovers" fish because it has dark flesh with lots of fat and flavor that many shy away from. Mackerel has an undeserved bad reputation as a greasy, strong, "fishy-tasting" fish, but to me its the perfect fish in every way...

Season Opener! The Return of the Mighty Alaskan Halibut

Halibut is a very versatile and delicious fish...sweet, delicate with a firm meaty texture. Cook it in any style—braise, bake, fry, steam and it's even firm enough to grill the steaks or fillets. We're getting the best halibut in our 30 year history right now!

Don’t Skimp on the Shrimp!

Don’t Skimp on the Shrimp!

...The majority of shrimp sold in the U.S. is imported. This is unfortunate not only because of the problems of habitat (mangrove) destruction and the use of chemicals and antibiotics in other countries, but also because some of the world's best shrimp come from right here in the U.S! Wild Gulf shrimp has a firmer, "snappier" texture and much better flavor than imports. The Florida, Alabama and Texas shrimp that we sell at Monahan's are fantastic! No pre-cooked frozen shrimp here...
