SOFT SHELL CRABS ARE HERE! 
One of the most delicious signs of spring is when the blue crabs off the East Coast lose their hard shells, and fishermen gather them up for our dining pleasure. We clean them for you, all you need to do is cook them, which takes minutes. We like ours dredged in seasoned flour, then sauteed in a little olive oil and herb butter, 2 to 3 minutes per side. A squeeze of lemon and they're ready to eat. To see how it's done, check out our soft shell cooking video  HERE: Soft Shell Crabs.
Soft shell on a bun. Yum!.

SUPPLY IS LIMITED - we recommend that you call and place an order if you have your heart set on soft shells for Mom.

We ate a lot of lobster rolls in Maine and Massachusetts, and ours are modeled after the ones we like best from a restaurant in Salem, MA. Perhaps we were bewitched...
grilling fish FRI.-SUN. DEALS 
5/11 - 5/13/18
Ask us for ideas for Mom -- halibut and Scottish salmon are great on the grill -- just add some of our fresh pesto, some garlic green beans and herb roasted new potatoes or our fresh potato salad - a meal fit for a queen! 

FRESH WILD ALASKAN HALIBUT
Was $34.95/lb. 
SALE $30.95/lb.*
We are selling fillets - other stores are offering steaks at a cheaper price, but you're getting twice as much skin and a bunch of bones. 
     Spring halibut season is something we all look forward to - check out some of our favorite preparation ideas Here: Halibut Recipes.  We love it baked with some of Jaime's great Arugula or Poblano Pesto (on sale) added before serving. A yummy start to the wild caught seafood season! 
FRESH WILD ICELANDIC COD 

Was $14.95/lb. SALE $11.95/lb.*
From one of the best managed fisheries in the world, this tasty fish is the perfect fish to please the whole family. Bake it in the oven with some of our Lemon Dill Sauce for a simple, delicious, low fat meal everyone will enjoy. Check out our favorite cod preparations

FRESH SCOTTISH  SALMON FILLETS
scottish salmon
Was$20.95/lb.  SALE  $17.95/lb.*
Wild salmon season is opening soon, but not quite yet. So we recommend this wonderful Scottish salmon from the North Sea - the pens are so big the fish don't know they're captive. This is Atlantic salmon in the Atlantic ocean, so escapees are not an issue. 
     High in omega 3s, Scottish salmon is good in any of our suggested salmon recipes -  Click Here for salmon prep ideas.
  We love this salmon baked with any of Jaime's great fresh pesto (on sale this weekend), or with his bruschetta and Lemon Dill Sauce.

     In late June we catered a fun event for a family in Wilmette - a combined 40th and 5th birthday party, father and son. Another father and son duo, Burhop's Chef Jaime and his son Jonny, cooked up kebabs, lobster tails, sweet corn and more for a happy crowd of many ages. According to the hostess: 
" An AMAZING feast thanks to you, John and Jamie.  The food was amazing and the chefs could not have been nicer.  Everyone was raving and we certainly let them know who to call! 
Thank you again, you have very satisfied customers."
