Chinook salmon has a pronounced buttery, rich taste and are the most prized salmon in the culinary world. They are oily, flaky and meaty in texture and with the exception of some white-meat strains of Chinook, the flesh is almost always red, never pink. Simple treatments are perfect for the rich and flavorful king salmon, but the fish can also stand up to hearty flavorings.

Barrelfish

Product Of: Gulf of Mexico, USA
Catch Method: Wild- Hook & Line
Sustainability: Not Rated

Barrelfish are found along the Atlantic Coast and in Gulf of Mexico, where they are brought in as a bycatch. Because there is not a directed fishery for Barrelfish, we do not see this in house too often, so now is the time to try it! Fillets resemble that of grouper, and cook up tender and moist with a rich, sweet and distinctive flavor. Barrelfish can be cooked in a variety of methods, but holds up extremely well for pan searing, roasting and grilling.

Market Updates:

– Canadian, Faroe and Scottish salmon prices have all increased substantially over the last few weeks. Several large producers are either shut down temporarily or hampered by weather issues causing an unforeseen rise in prices. Some estimates point to March as to when things will settle down. Commodity Chilean salmon prices haven’t changed much, which is unusual.
-The plants in Iceland are back on line, but the weather has been terrible and there have been no in bound and outbound flights. We will not be receiving any new shipments of cod loins until the weekend.
