Ahoy from SS All Fresh Seafood -
Last week I set sail and headed to the Boston Seafood Show with my first mate and partner who many of you had the pleasure of speaking to in the past - Our Director of Logistics & IT - Jerry. It was a super fantastic trip of exploration that is going to yield new and exciting things for the coming year. I'd like to thank our other first mate and partner Glenn for holding down the mothership while we were away - the seas were rough but he made it through the storm!!
Some of the new products that we are going to be sharing and the one I am most excited to share are Lobster Tails from Australia!! The water there is super deep, super cold, and super pristine! These tails are really special- it is half a lobster that is split in half to make it easy to pop on the grill or butter poach! This will be an exclusive partnership with this very special product!!!
The next item that we found is something to help with our "Green Initiative". We will be sourcing our Branzini from a fully Sustainable Farm located in Connecticut, instead of halfway around the world. The product is beautiful and every little bit we do to be more responsible in our sourcing as a company helps our beautiful earth. This is one of our top priorities for this coming year and beyond!!
The last item I would like to share is something that inspired me from a dinner we had in Boston - this coming week we will be bringing in Fresh Boston Haddock Fillet. This is really a New England staple, in so many fish & chip shops and white tablecloth restaurants. I had it in a fancy restaurant roasted with a parmesan crust and it was divine! It was a pure, simple, hearty piece of fish - and this is what I want to share with everyone this coming week - if you like Cod, you will LOVE Haddock!

Hi, Fish Fans -
Spring is finally upon us and the world of seafood is in a tsunami of turmoil! I know everyone is feeling it at the gas pumps, can you imagine what some of our boat captains are saying when they pull up with a 150 - 200 foot vessel - filla up, please! These vessels can hold 22,000 gallons - a boat like the Time Bandit on the Deadliest Catch for instance! Yikes, I hope they have the Black American Express card! All kidding aside we are fighting these supply chain issues which are very real and causing prices to spike into uncharted territory. It is not so much because the product is not available, but because of all the labor, shipping, and handling expenses surrounding it.
This last week Dover Sole continued to be a super fan fav, Monkfish made a debut after some time off and was welcomed back with open arms, and Red Snapper was way oversold all of the sudden - wow!
This coming week we will have beautiful fresh Spanish Mackeral coming in from the mid-Atlantic fishing grounds, fresh Skate filet which is my favorite fish. If you have not tried Skate don't hesitate - it will go in a NY minute. If you saute this in a cast iron pan crispy it just might be your new favorite fish!! Lastly - please explore our new weekly circular of savings - so many great deals not to miss.
