Remember, your fishmonger is your friend and here at DLM. They are knowledgeable and passionate about sourcing the best and the freshest! But what does that word “fresh” really mean? It’s often overused because everyone says their seafood is “fresh” to the point that the word has almost lost its meaning. Our definition of the word is one we stand behind and is one of the building blocks that has elevated our Seafood department over the years. It comes down to “time spent out of water,” says Jack Gridley, DLM VP of Meat & Seafood, and there are several ways that we keep that time to a minimum. We do so by buying it direct from fishing co-ops that practice sustainable techniques. We also choose air freight instead of having it travel by truck, resulting in drastically less time out of water.
The constant stream of new fish in our seafood case is a true reflection of what’s in season. So as the Lenten season begins, check with us often as we’ll be featuring a vast selection of seasonal catches as they are available as well as a variety of shellfish. Here are 7 recipes so you can cook up a fish dish for your table, whether it’s for Fish Friday or any day.
