Fish Tails 3/30/21: Pranks & New Hours … Aloha Seafood

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • Aloha once more, Glad to be able to inform y’all that we’re back to being OPEN on SATURDAYS again, starting this week, so you’re all lookin’ at a 6-days-a-week delivery option from your favorite fish-monger!  And more — we’re in an extremely rare week that includes four holidays  — the two obvious ones are Good Friday, (which was once a huge seafood-consuming day many years ago), and Easter, … and on Thursday, April 1st, it’s both Opening Day! and April Fools Day, which both need a little boost to be considered high-seafood-consumption days. Anyway, we’ve got some BOLIVIAN SEA BASS coming in this week, and if you order some, then we’ll know that you haven’t read this thing all the way ’til the end …
  • Lately, it seems like more changes than usual on the Price List — not in the right direction — so be aware of that. For instance, WE are now paying over $10 for LIVE Crabs — price up to you, but we just can’t lift it any higher to where we’d like our margins to be.
  • Popular items for that Easter Brunch include ALASKAN HALIBUT, SMOKED SALMON, any of our FRESH SALMON (6 of ’em), SKREI (NORWEGIAN ATL COD), SHRIMP/PRAWNS, IQF SHRIMPMEAT, CRABMEAT, LOBSTERMEAT, SCALLOPS, and da’ list goes on …
  • And a few we haven’t seen much of lately are set to make an appearance this week — HUACHINANGO! (Real MEX’N RED SNAPPERS), Local LING COD!, and YELLOWTAIL JACK. 
  • Lots More including PETRALE SOLE, SoCAL & LOCAL HALIBUT … ROCK & TRUE & BLACK COD … SWORDFISH, MAHI, OPAH?, AHI, TOMBO … CORVINA, BRONZINI …
  • OK, lotta’ repeated stuff below this, but the reason I need to explain the piece about Bolivian Sea Bass to you rookies, sorry, I mean you home-chefs, is because you might just order some, not realizing that Bolivia doesn’t have fishing fleet, because it doesn’t have a coastline, it never did, and it won’t have one on April Fools Day either.    Gotcha’.    Happy Easter!
  • Reminder 1) It’s OK to include the eMail addresses that have one of our names in it, BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ALWAYS INCLUDE orders@alohaseafood.net when eMailing/replying with us.
  • Now offering a line of eight of Bristol’s “MY FISH DISH”, a 7-oz thaw, bake, & enjoy seafood entree — GARLIC/HERB/BUTTER SHRIMP & SWEET CHILI-SAUCE SHRIMPBlackened-&-Smoked Butter SCALLOPS or ATLANTIC COD or WILD SOCKEYE SALMON; and Sesame-&-Seaweed Teriyaki on the same three fish. Seems perfect for all of you HDS customers. Give ’em a try!
  • “Del Pacifico” Suripera Blue Prawns are absolutely da’ Best Prawn/Shrimp that can be found. Currently, Disney Corp is their top customer … let’s see if we can join that Mickey-Mouse outfit at the top of the list!
  • Some faves from da’ freezer —  HAMACHI COLLARS / KAMA (2+ lbs per pkg); HAMACHI FILLET (about 5-lbs ea); CHILEAN C-BASS COLLARS … SPANISH OCTOPUS; FZN Cooked/Blanched OCTOPUS TENTACLES (TAKO) about 3# ea, from Hokkaido/Japan, a ‘Hot Special’ at $7.50 … AHI POKE CUBES; SALMON POKE CUBES; FZN ALBACORE LOINS; Sk-Off/BLO FZN AHI LOINS … IQF SMELT; IQF SARDINES; PERUVIAN BAY SCALLOPSOYSTER SPRING-ROLLS; Lots More …

Fish Tails 3/15/21: Aloha Again

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • Appreciate your annoyance about me skipping ‘Fish Tails’ last week, here’s da’ latest:
  • ALASKAN HALIBUT season has begun, and the fish are beautiful. Hoping for consistent supply moving forward, but keep in mind that the allowable catch (quota) stretches out for 9 months this year, so the fishermen will only go out when the conditions are good. The SoCAL/MEX’N HAL are still running strong, too.
  • Here’s one we haven’t had since 2019 — OPAH — this fish is in a category by itself, firm, thick flakes, red meat, grillable, fatty, maybe tastes like a cross btwn SWORDFISH & AHI. Help me out here — any Islanders out there who can enhance that description? Fresh MAHI avail this week, too.
  • The DUNGENESS CRAB catch is really grinding down towards an early end already. Most of the local boats have already pulled in their gear, and there’s just not enough catch up north nor demand down here to warrant bringing any down via trucking.
  • NO Petrale Sole this week — rough weather.
  • Some price increases already showing up due to increased demand around the country/world because of the loosening of Covid restrictions — note your Farm’d ATL SALMON Fil is up a buck. And you probably don’t even wanna take note of where LIVE LOBSTERS & LOBSTERMEAT pricing has gone.
  • BRONZINI  /  COD = ROCK & TRUE & SKREI (Norwegian Atl Cod) & BLACK COD  /  MEX’N PINK GROUPER  /  Lotsa’ SALMON Choices  /  HOKKAIDO DRY-PACK SCALLOPS  /  OYSTERS-CLAMS-MUSSELS  /  Lots MORE — some re-“Tail” below — Keep Eating Seafood!
  • Promote Aloha Seafood! — as we notice an uptick in our restaurant business, we also notice a slight decline in our Home Delivery Service, so here’s how you can help: When you’re out there supporting your local restaurants, ask them who their Seafood supplier is?, and if they reply with the wrong answer … well, good time to mention “Aloha Seafood”! It’s easy. Mahalo.
  • Reminder 1) It’s OK to include the addresses that have one of our names in it, BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ALWAYS INCLUDE orders@alohaseafood.net when emailing/replying with us.  Reminder 2) We’re now Eliminating Home-Delivery Service on Fridays, and we’re still CLOSED on Saturdays for now. Mahalo for understanding.
  • Now offering a line of eight of Bristol’s “MY FISH DISH”, a 7-oz thaw, bake, & enjoy seafood entree — GARLIC/HERB/BUTTER SHRIMP & SWEET CHILI-SAUCE SHRIMPBlackened-&-Smoked Butter SCALLOPS or ATLANTIC COD or WILD SOCKEYE SALMON; and Sesame-&-Seaweed Teriyaki on the same three fish. Seems perfect for all of you HDS customers. Give ’em a try!
  • “Del Pacifico” Suripera Blue Prawns are absolutely da’ Best Prawn/Shrimp that can be found. Currently, Disney Corp is their top customer … let’s see if we can join that Mickey-Mouse outfit at the top of the list!
  • Some faves from da’ freezer —  HAMACHI COLLARS / KAMA (2+ lbs per pkg); HAMACHI FILLET (about 5-lbs ea); CHILEAN C-BASS COLLARS … SPANISH OCTOPUS; FZN Cooked/Blanched OCTOPUS TENTACLES (TAKO) about 3# ea, from Hokkaido/Japan, a ‘Hot Special’ at $7.50 … AHI POKE CUBES; SALMON POKE CUBES; FZN ALBACORE LOINS; Sk-Off/BLO FZN AHI LOINS … IQF SMELT; IQF SARDINES; PERUVIAN BAY SCALLOPSOYSTER SPRING-ROLLS; Lots More …
  • Note: if you buy LIVE Crabs, and they don’t seem so alive when you receive them, PLEASE Cook Them BEFORE you tell us that you want Credit for a “dead” Crab — if the Crab has even an iota of life left in its body/nerves, then the muscles will tense up and the meat will be firm when cooked, but if it really indeed was dead before cooking it (which would be unusual), then the meat could end up more like the texture of applesauce — it’s not common, it’s also not harmful, but we get it that it’s not so appetizing, either.

Fish Tails 3/1/21: Answer & Announcement, Aloha

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • Answer to da’ riddle: There was a pretty successful Broadway stage production about Alexander Hamilton, but he was never a President. Neither was good ol’ Ben Franklin. So there’s Washington (on the $1) and Abe ($5) and Andrew Jackson ($20) and Ulysses Grant ($50) and don’t forget about Tom Jefferson ($2) — that’s  $78.00 worth of Presidential portraits on  American paper currency up to the $100-bill. Final answer. Congratulations to a few of you that got it right! — and if you haven’t already cashed in on our “waive your delivery fee” prize, don’t forget to remind us. Feeling obliged to mention my sister, not because she got it right (she did), but because I forgot to wish her a Happy Birthday.
  • As areas are moving into less-restrictive tiers, we’re announcing a move to squeeze you guys (the Home Delivery sector) in to a 4-day delivery schedule, Monday thru Thursday, eliminating Fridays. Please order accordingly. Pick-ups here at our facility on Pier 45 on Fridays is still OK.
  • Promote Aloha Seafood! — as we notice an uptick in our restaurant business, we also notice a slight decline in our Home Delivery Service, so here’s how you can help: When you’re out there supporting your local restaurants, ask them who their Seafood supplier is?, and if they reply with the wrong answer … well, good time to mention “Aloha Seafood”! It’s easy. Mahalo.
  • That’s all for today, slightly edited re-“Tail” below, and Price-list attached …
  • SKREI & YELLOWTAIL JACK & SoCAL HALIBUT  /  MEX’N PINK GROUPER & CORVINA will be our “Bass”  /  DUNGENESS CRABS remain day-to-day. SWORDFISH, AHI, TOMBO  /  ROCK & TRUE & BLACK COD  /  PETRALE SOLE  /  DRY-PACK SCALLOPS  /  BRONZINI  /  CLAMS, OYSTERS, MUSSELS  /  CAVIARS  /  CANADIAN ATL SALMON, ‘LOCH DUART’ ATL SAL, NZ KING SAL x 2, STEELHEAD X 2  /  More…
  • Glad to see SKREI again … this is a short-season, highly managed, sustainable fishery of a population of (North Sea) ATLANTIC COD in their migration route to spawning grounds off of Norway. Try it now!

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • I was complimenting y’all for being such loyal readers, but now just ‘crickets’ on the latest riddle. Here it is again: You have one each of American paper currency from the $1-bill through the $100-bill — if you add up all those presidential portraits, how much money do you have?
  • When you’re done doing that math, check out the math of lower prices this week on SKREI & YELLOWTAIL JACK & SoCAL HALIBUT!!
  • Fortunately and somewhat surprising, the recent weather around the country has had little to no effect on our receiving. Looks like CORVINA will be our “Bass” for the early part of this week. Expecting some FRESH MAHI-MAHI this week. DUNGENESS CRABS remain day-to-day — we’ve had days with No Live ones, days with No Cooked ones, but not yet any days with neither. NO Huachinango, NO Striped Bass, NO Uni this week.
  • Lots More, including SWORDFISH, AHI, TOMBO  /  ROCK & TRUE & BLACK COD  /  PETRALE SOLE  /  DRY-PACK SCALLOPS  /  BRONZINI  /  CLAMS, OYSTERS, MUSSELS  /  CAVIARS  /  CANADIAN ATL SALMON, ‘LOCH DUART’ ATL SAL, NZ KING SAL x 2, STEELHEAD X 2  /  Price List attached, re-“Tail” below …
  • Glad to see SKREI again … this is a highly managed, sustainable fishery of a population of (North Sea) ATLANTIC COD in their migration route to spawning grounds off of Norway. Very short season of availability, try some now!

Fish Tails 2/16/21: Riddle Time, Aloha

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • Need to express appreciation that so many of you guys & gals actually read this thing, compared to the relatively small numbers of chefs & purchasers of restaurants, who get another version of “Fish Tails”, that very few of ’em ever read. Example — the short blurb that was sent out last Tuesday about some Fresh Uni coming in — well, we sold out in a matter of a coupla’ hours, was able to increase our order, and we still over-sold (almost 40 trays); ALL except two trays went to you guys, and the two trays that went to chefs were for their home use, not for their restaurants. Mahalo! for reading …
  • And thanks for buying & eating Seafood, too. Super Bowl Sunday and Valentine’s Day were very helpful, and did ya’ know about the other Holiday coming up tomorrow? — It’s called “Pitchers & Catchers Report to Spring Training”, and though it may not be recognized as a National holiday just yet, it’s still as good of an excuse as any to eat fish!
  • And since we’re talking about President’s Day, it’s time to dust off this one: If you had one each of the presidential portraits on American currency from the $1-bill thru the $100-bill, how much money would you have?
  • Here’s some news — We’re guessing that DUNGENESS CRAB availability is gonna get more sporadic than it’s been, order up and hope for the best, and note that the price is up quite a bit … Alaskan HALIBUT season is only a month away! … And some more SKREI are coming in (see below).
  • Bigger HUACHINANGO (2-4s) expected in, too … STRIPED BASS, BRONZINI, PETRALE SOLE, SoCAL HAL, ROCK & TRUE & BLACK COD, SWORDFISH, YELLOWTAIL JACK, WHITE C-BASS, AHI & TOMBO, DRY-PACK SCALLOPS, SALMON x 6, OYSTERS/CLAMS/MUSSELS, Lot’s More …
  • Glad to see SKREI coming back in … this is a very sustainable, highly managed fishery of a population of (North Sea) ATLANTIC COD in their migration route to spawning grounds off of Norway. Very short season of availability, try some now!
  • Reminder 1) PLEASE check who you’re sending your eMailed orders & comments & questions to.

Seems perfect for all of you HDS customers. Give ’em a try!
  • Check out the “Hot Specials” section of the Price-List, and notice the 16/20 P&D Blue PRAWNS from “Del Pacifico” on the Sea of Cortez — these are Wild, and a rarity in the Shrimp industry, they are caught in one-day outings, with Suripera nets, frozen one time only, and the company has exclusive and hard-to-attain Fair Trade Certification! (We ordered 16/20 Headless Shell-On to replenish our stock, they sent us P&Ds by mistake, discounted the cost, and we’re passing it on to you!) Yes, they aren’t cheap, because of the factors listed above, but “Del Pacifico” are absolutely da’ Best Prawn/Shrimp that can be found.

Fish Tails 2/1/21: First of Feb, Aloha Seafood

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • OK, I mentioned that this was coming, and the timing is now right for this juicy little tidbit: The Pt. Reyes/Tomales Bay area is home to a lotta’ dairy cows, and seasonal rains, as well. The run-off from the rains, (which includes what the cows dropped in the grass), flows into the shallow bay. And Oysters do a great job of cleaning up their environment because they are filter-feeders. You get the picture — A full three days after it stops raining is when the State tests the water for absence of natural toxins such as E.coli. If an Oyster operation in West Marin has the capacity to “wet-store” a week or two worth of Oysters, then great, but in this case, we will NOT have any Pt.Reyes Miyagi Oysters this week.
  • Now that we’ve got you lickin’ your lips … there’s an opportunity for a few “new” ones this week — FRESH Monterey SQUID (inconsistent availability ’til June, so jump on it), and HUACHINANGO (real “Red Snapper” from MX, 1-2#ers), which we haven’t seen for a while, that’ll be swimming in with some MEX’N WHITE C-BASS. More from down south — YELLOWTAIL JACK!!  And TOMBO is back in da’ ice again!! Furthermore, we’re trying to secure some SKREI (migrating sub-population of Atlantic Cod off of the coast of Norway) for next week in time for Valentines Day.
  • Take note: price hikes on DUNGENESS CRABMEAT & 5/6-oz Cold-water LOBSTER TAILS. And “mahalo” to a few of ya’ who helped us blow through some Ground/Minced Ahi — None more available, and None more coming in.
  • Not too early to give us a heads-up about your Lobster & CAVIAR needs for Valentines day.
  • Day-to-day on whether we’ll have either Live and/or Fresh Whole-Cooked CRABs or neither — just keep the orders coming in.  More: ROCK & TRUE & BLACK COD  /  MEX’N STRIPED BASS & BRONZINI  /  PETRALE SOLE & SoCAL HAL  /  SALMON x 6  /  AHI & SWORDFISH  /  DRY-PACK SCALLOPS  /  Lotta’ SHELLFISH & Lots More & re”Tail” below …
  • Note: if you buy LIVE Crabs, and they don’t seem so alive when you receive them, PLEASE Cook Them BEFORE you tell us that you want Credit for a “dead” Crab — if the Crab has even an iota of life left in its body/nerves, then the muscles will tense up and the meat will be firm when cooked, but if it really indeed was dead before cooking it (which would be unusual), then the meat could end up more like the texture of applesauce — it’s not common, it’s also not harmful, but we get it that it’s not so appetizing, either.
  • Reminder 1) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ALWAYS USE orders@alohaseafood.net when emailing/replying with us. Always. The reason is when/if you place your order by replying back Only to This eMail or Only to Lloyd or to Kaiser, Mike, etc, then your reply comes back Only to That Individual, and your message may get “lost”, and not get forwarded to our “control center”.  It’s quite OK to include me, or Mike, or Lloyd, Kaiser, etc. … but Please Always Include orders@alohaseafood.net also. Reminder 2) We’re now CLOSED on Saturdays until things pick up again. Mahalo for understanding.
  • Now offering a line of eight of Bristol’s “MY FISH DISH”, a 7-oz thaw, bake, & enjoy seafood entree — GARLIC/HERB/BUTTER SHRIMP & SWEET CHILI-SAUCE SHRIMPBlackened-&-Smoked Butter SCALLOPS or ATLANTIC COD or WILD SOCKEYE SALMON; and Sesame-&-Seaweed Teriyaki on the same three fish. Seems perfect for all of you HDS customers. Give ’em a try!
  • Check out the “Hot Specials” section of the Price-List, and notice the 16/20 P&D Blue PRAWNS from “Del Pacifico” on the Sea of Cortez — these are Wild, and a rarity in the Shrimp industry, they are caught in one-day outings, with Suripera nets, frozen one time only, and the company has exclusive and hard-to-attain Fair Trade Certification! (We ordered 16/20 Headless Shell-On to replenish our stock, they sent us P&Ds by mistake, discounted the cost, and we’re passing it on to you!) Yes, they aren’t cheap, because of the factors listed above, but “Del Pacifico” are absolutely da’ Best Prawn/Shrimp that can be found. Currently, Disney Corp is their top customer … let’s see if we can join that Mickey-Mouse outfit at the top of the list!
  • Some faves from da’ freezer —  HAMACHI COLLARS / KAMA (2+ lbs per pkg); HAMACHI FILLET (about 5-lbs ea); CHILEAN C-BASS COLLARS … SPANISH OCTOPUS; FZN Cooked/Blanched OCTOPUS TENTACLES (TAKO) about 3# ea, from Hokkaido/Japan, a ‘Hot Special’ at $7.50 … AHI POKE CUBES; SALMON POKE CUBES; FZN ALBACORE LOINS; Sk-Off/BLO FZN AHI LOINS … IQF SMELT; IQF SARDINES; PERUVIAN BAY SCALLOPSOYSTER SPRING-ROLLS; Lots More …

Fish Tails 1/27/21: Another ‘Tail’ … Aloha Seafood

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • Just know that even though there’s new protocols that lessen restrictions for dining out, we have no plans to diminish or phase out you guys, the home-chefs, whose support has been such a critical part of our success. So keep eating fish!
  • And thanks for telling your friends & fam about us — always surprised by how many weekly additions we get on this mailing list. Welcome newbies, enjoy some “Tail”.
  • Not much news to report — the DUNGENESS CRAB season is a flop — normally a big influx by now of the bigger & better critters from Eureka, Crescent City, and Oregon hitting the markets, but they’re struggling to catch anything up there, too — Now offering FRESH COOKED CRABS for the same price as LIVE ones, they’re mmm-mmm good!
  • This week’s inventory: SALMON x 6 … Bass = MEX’N PINK GROUPER & MEX’N STRIPED BASS … PETRALE SOLE … SoCAL HALIBUT … BRONZINI … ROCK & TRUE & BLACK COD … AHI (but still NO Tombo) … SWORDFISH … DRY-PACK HOKKAIDO SCALLOPS … OYSTERS/CLAMS/MUSSELS (great time of year for shellfish) … lot’s more…
  • If your favorite restaurant isn’t serving LOBSTERS for Valentines Day, you can always get ’em from us!
  • Last call for our GROUND/MINCED AHI — gettin’ real low, and we ain’t buyin’ any more.
  • Below is a few bullet-points from previous issues of da’ “Tail”, which we call re-“Tail”… Prices attached … Stay hungry & stay healthy …
  • This one seems to come up quite often — “Which fish are sashimi-quality, are safe for raw consumption?” — Simplifying it just a bit, most all of our products can be and have been consumed raw. Seafood items that are Frozen adhere to the (never enforced) regulation that “items consumed raw must have been frozen at some point in the process”. Live ShellFish (Oysters/Clams/Mussels) which are purchased on a commercial basis (not recreationally harvested) are under very strict guidelines for absence of toxins. (More about that in a future issue when it’s been raining a lot). As for Fresh Seafood, you may feel safer with Farmed products such as Salmon or Striped Bass, because they are not susceptible to natural pathogens & parasites as Wild species sometimes are. And if you do come across a worm in your Halibut or Rock Cod, just realize that it will not present a health hazard if consumed, and furthermore, we didn’t charge you anything extra for that extra morsel of protein!
  • Note: if you buy LIVE Crabs, and they don’t seem so alive when you receive them, PLEASE Cook Them BEFORE you tell us that you want Credit for a “dead” Crab — if the Crab has even an iota of life left in its body/nerves, then the muscles will tense up and the meat will be firm when cooked, but if it really indeed was dead before cooking it (which would be unusual), then the meat could end up more like the texture of applesauce — it’s not common, it’s also not harmful, but we get it that it’s not so appetizing, either.

Aloha Seafood’s Fish Tails 1/19/2021

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • OK, not offering up any excuses and we’ll spare you all the details, but let’s just say that we’re real sorry if our execution on Friday caused any inconvenience or hardship to many of you. Hope it all ended up well.
  • This has got to be the most uneven start to a Crab season that I can ever remember — first of all, the huge processor that was involved in the pricing negotiations hasn’t bought a single pound of local Crabs yet. The fishermen are staying out longer because the initial catches are not enough volume/weight to come in. Then when they do come in, they’re not unloading until they get paid more money. Then most of those Crabs are going to China, (because they’ll pay). Then there’s some cooked Crabs from up north that arrived in the Bay Area on Monday, and we get a notice from OR Fish & Game that those Crabs haven’t cleared inspection yet, so they’re “on hold” (don’t know how they even got on a truck without proper test clearances). Haven’t even mentioned rough weather yet. Needless to say, the price that was published on last week’s price-list was good for about 37 seconds, maybe less, and there’s still too much “volatility”, so no published price quote on this weeks list.
  • Other than that, the news that Crab season has started has brought us another wave of “new” folks — Aloha to all you “newbies”, appreciate your interest, enjoy some “Tail”.
  • This one seems to come up quite often — “Which fish are sashimi-quality, are safe for raw consumption?” — Simplifying it just a bit, most all of our products can be and have been consumed raw. Seafood items that are Frozen adhere to the (never enforced) regulation that “items consumed raw must have been frozen at some point in the process”. Live ShellFish (Oysters/Clams/Mussels) which are purchased on a commercial basis (not recreationally harvested) are under very strict guidelines for absence of toxins.

  • SALMON x 6 … MAHI … Bass this week is MEX’N PINK GROUPER … SoCAL HAL … BRONZINI & STRIPED BASS … ROCK & TRUE & BLACK COD … Lots More, but still NO Tombo … some more re-‘Tail’ below …
  • Here’s how it works: The Crabs from our local waters typically average less than 2-lbs each, but at the onset of the season, and also because the season is starting so late,  we may see a good amount of ’em that weigh in heavier, perhaps 2.25 to 2.5 lbs. Best for us if you order by-the-piece — figure a Crab per person is about right — if you’re light eaters, you’ll have some left over for the next day or three; if you’ve got a big appetite, then add an extra Crab or three on to your order. I may be an expert on Crabs, but you’re on your own as far as which sourdough makes the best garlic bread, or which wine to serve. Last note: if you buy LIVE Crabs, and they don’t  seem so alive when you receive them, PLEASE Cook Them BEFORE you tell us that you want Credit for a “dead” Crab — if the Crab has even an iota of life left in its body/nerves, then the muscles will tense up and the meat will be firm when cooked, but if it really indeed was dead before cooking it (which would be unusual), then the meat could end up more like the texture of applesauce — it’s not common, it’s also not harmful, but we get it that it’s not so appetizing, either.
  • Added two more to our “My-Fish Dish” line!! — GARLIC/HERB/BUTTER SHRIMP & SWEET CHILI-SAUCE SHRIMP. Bristol’s “MY FISH DISH” is a 7-oz thaw, bake, & enjoy seafood entree. We’re offering EIGHT of ’em — Blackened-&-Smoked Butter SCALLOPS or ATLANTIC COD or WILD SOCKEYE SALMON, and Sesame-&-Seaweed Teriyaki on the same three fish, plus the two SHRIMP dishes mentioned above. Seems perfect for all of you HDS customers. Give ’em a try!
  • A pound of Crabmeat is equivalent to 4# of Whole Crabs, about two nice-sized Crabs. CRAB SECTIONS are Crabs in the shell, without the back shell or any guts/innards, just the body sections with legs attached, what you’ve probably enjoyed at your yearly charitable Crab Feeds. About a pound of these would be the equivalent of one nice Crab. We have NO Fzn WHOLE Crabs.
  • Check out the “Hot Specials” section of the Price-List, and notice the 16/20 P&D Blue PRAWNS from “Del Pacifico” on the Sea of Cortez — these are Wild, and a rarity in the Shrimp industry, they are caught in one-day outings, with Suripera nets, frozen one time only, and the company has exclusive and hard-to-attain Fair Trade Certification!

Fish Tails 1/11/2021: Crabs R Coming … Aloha Seafood

FISH TAILS — HDS

  • First, the good news — From our vantage point here on Pier 45, there’s a line of boats heading out through the gate to drop their Crab traps in da’ sea! On Wednesday morning, they’ll pick ’em up, and if the traps are full of critters, then We WILL Have LIVE DUNGENESS CRABS for Thursday! … and there oughtta’ be FRESH COOKED CRABS by Friday!!!  Here’s how it works: The Crabs from our local waters typically average less than 2-lbs each, but at the onset of the season, and also because the season is starting so late, we may see a good amount of ’em that weigh in heavier, perhaps 2.25 to 2.5 lbs. Best for us if you order by-the-piece — figure a Crab per person is about right — if you’re light eaters, you’ll have some left over for the next day or three; if you’ve got a big appetite, then add an extra Crab or three on to your order. I may be an expert on Crabs, but you’re on your own as far as which sourdough makes the best garlic bread, or which wine to serve. Last note: if you buy LIVE Crabs, and they don’t seem so alive when you receive them, PLEASE Cook Them BEFORE you tell us that you want Credit for a “dead” Crab — if the Crab has even an iota of life left in its body/nerves, then the muscles will tense up and the meat will be firm when cooked, but if it really indeed was dead before cooking it (which would be unusual), then the meat could end up more like the texture of applesauce — it’s not common, it’s also not harmful, but we get it that it’s not so appetizing, either. All that needs to occur now is the weather cooperating so the boats can get out & in. Oh, one more last thing — could be some fluctuations on the pricing to start off, but the price-list is a good guesstimate for now.
  • Here’s the not-so-good news — We rejected shipments of Fresh AHI and Fresh TOMBO this morning, and all of our primary sources have none to offer us at this time. We’re hoping for some later in the week, price will likely jump. Our Frozen AHI LOINS (5-8 lbs ea), Fzn AHI SAKU BLOCKS (1# ea), and Fzn LOCAL ALBACORE LOINS (1# ea) are all Skinless & No Blood-Line, are always gaining traction in popularity, and are all Sashimi-Quality. … And still a lotta weather up North, so there’s NO Petrale Sole for now, we don’t expect our next ROCK COD until Wednesday, we’ll probably need to slack out some BLACK COD as our Fresh inventory is real low, and we think you’ll really like our AK TRUE COD Fillets. The moral to da’ story is that Wild Fish Availability & Wintertime Weather just aren’t always a good match.
  • A few jars of the CA ‘ROYALE’ CAVIAR on hand … also SALMON x 6 … BRONZINI … SoCAL HAL … CORVINA BASS … Lots More … some re-‘Tail’ below …
  • I should find some time in the next coupla’ weeks to update the Terms/Abbreviations and the FAQs in the attachments and on our website — stay tuned. I may even have time to clean up my desk area, too.  Reminder of last week’s announcement that we’ll be Closed on Saturdays until in makes sense to open again. And another friendly reminder to PLEASE ALWAYS USE orders@alohaseafood.net when emailing/replying with us. Always. The reason is when/if you place your order by replying back Only to This eMail, then your reply comes back Only to Me, and because I’m not always sharp enough to notice that sorta’ thing, your message may get “lost”. It’s quite OK to include me, or Mike, or Lloyd, Kaiser, etc. … but Please Always Include orders@alohaseafood.net also. Mahalo.
  • Added two more to our “My-Fish Dish” line!! — GARLIC/HERB/BUTTER SHRIMP & SWEET CHILI-SAUCE SHRIMP. Bristol’s “MY FISH DISH” is a 7-oz thaw, bake, & enjoy seafood entree.

Give ’em a try!
  • No Crabs, but know that we have D. CRABMEAT, BLUECRAB BACKFIN MT, Fzn CRAB SECTIONS, KING CRAB LEGS & CLAWS, SNOW CRAB COCKTAIL CLAWS, and/or LIVE LOBSTERS, LOBSTERMEAT, & LOBSTER TAILS. And to answer a common inquiry lately — Yes, we will sell the Lob Tails by the piece; they’re 5/6-oz each, so about 3 pcs per lb, at $38 per lb.
  • — (A pound of Crabmeat is equivalent to 4# of Whole Crabs, about two nice-sized Crabs.
