IN THIS ISSUE...
MASKS ARE NOW OPTIONAL
We've been wearing masks for two years to keep ourselves and our customers safe. We will continue to do so, and some of our customers will as well. If you are showing any signs of illness, please place a curbside pickup order, 630-887-4700, $25 minimum.

IF JUST ONE PERSON ON OUR STAFF GETS SICK, WE WILL HAVE TO CLOSE FOR UP TO 2 WEEKS. THAT WOULD BE A HUGE FINANCIAL PROBLEM FOR US AS A SMALL BUSINESS WITH PERISHABLE PRODUCT. A MASK IS NOT PUNISHMENT, IT'S NOT POLITICAL, IT'S A WAY TO PREVENT THE TRANSMISSION OF GERMS.
LOTS OF WILD SEASONAL ITEMS THIS WEEK
6/21-6/23
We will have fresh Alaskan king salmon, (fabulous on the grill), Icelandic cod, and customer favorite Scottish salmon on sale this week.
We also have opah, not on sale, but a very popular wild grilling item.
Whatever your seafood desires are, we always recommend that you call and place an order to avoid disappointment - 630-887-4700.
ALL SEASONAL ITEMS ARE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY - IF OUR SUPPLIERS CAN'T GET IT, NEITHER CAN WE.
GAZPACHO IS BACK!
One of our customer favorites, this delicious cold vegetable soup is great as a first course, as a quick and easy lunch, or a healthy snack. No heating, just serve! Add some fresh crusty bread and it's a meal in itself. Perfect for hot, steamy weather.
grilling fish
MIDWEEK SPECIALS 6/21-23
Beautiful grilling weather this week - No need to heat up the kitchen when it's 90 outside!
We have good things for the grill on deal this weekend - fish cooks fast, dinner can be ready in 10-15 minutes, no pans to clean up.
Kebabs have been selling like hot cakes - we strongly recommend placing an order so you don't have to wait - we go through the kebabs at a fast clip, but we'll have yours ready if you call ahead, 630-887-4700.
WILD ICELANDIC COD
Reg. $24.95/lb. SALE $22.95/lb.*
Mild and flaky, makes a great family dinner. Wonderful simply baked with our Lemon Dill Sauce, or check out our Cod Recipes HERE. One of the world's best managed fisheries.
WILD ALASKAN KING SALMON
Was $42.95/lb. SALE $40.95/lb.
One of the most elegant of wild salmons, we love it grilled and topped with some fresh pesto, or one of the Stonewall grilling sauces. We had salmon with the Garlic Rosemary Citrus sauce for Father's Day, delicious.
scottish salmon
SCOTTISH SALMON
Was $23.95/lb. SALE $21.95/lb.*
A year round customer favorite, Scottish is as close to wild as you can get with a raised fish. Housed in giant pens off the shores of Scotland, these fish don't know they aren't free to swim away. Great on the grill.

All our fresh deli foods are made here in our kitchen, not brought in in big tubs from somewhere else. We use organic and locally grown ingredients (when available). See something you've never tried? Ask us for a taste.

These cook in minutes on the grill - try them with our Shoyu Marinade, or a drizzle of Lemon Dill Sauce at the end of cooking.
seafood harvest
SEAFOOD HARVEST SALAD
Reg. $9.95/lb. SALE $8.95/lb.*
Makes a great lunch or a light dinner - tasty crab surimi combined with crispy celery and green onion in a light creamy dressing. Also makes a delicious sandwich roll. A customer favorite for over 35 years.

HOW TO RECOGNIZE FAKE
SEA SCALLOPS
We recently had a customer regale us with her belief that we had "cheated" her elderly father, because some of the sea scallops he'd bought were not fully round. They tasted great, but weren't perfectly formed.
Sea scallops are one of the most commonly "faked" shellfish, made with a cookie cuter out of shark or skate wing. If your scallops look perfectly round and uniform, they may not be scallops at all. Here is a Link to an article on fake scallops.
Scallops are wild caught, they are never going to be perfectly alike. We would never sell fake scallops. Know your fishmonger!
wbw burger
SEAN'S CRISPY WBW BURGER
$5.95 RAW, $7.95 COOKED ON A BUN
Another tasty creation from one of our staff - a combination of fresh mild tasting whitefish, branzino and walleye, with spices and crumbs that crisp up when cooked. Makes a wonderful quick lunch or dinner, ideal for those who don't like salmon! Serve with or without a bun. Great topped with our tartar sauce.
NB: If you want yours cooked, call ahead to avoid the wait - 630-887-4700

NEW CHECK OUT SYSTEM
We have just launched a new checkout system, tied into new scales, which we are not used to yet. Instead of having specials that last for two months, we will be having specials posted in the store in addition to the ones in our twice weekly blasts. Once we get used to making all the changes required for sale items, we may go back to the way we were doing things. In the meantime, daily specials will be posted on whiteboards in the store.
Our goal is to come into the 21st century with our check out system - we hope it will improve your shopping experience as well as our efficiency!

   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." 
   Recently we did an oyster bar for a party in Hinsdale, and a lobster tail birthday party in Kenilworth. 
And in early October, we did a socially distanced wedding reception with individual lobster boil dinners.
   If you have something to celebrate, do it with great seafood! We will custom design a menu, just for you. To find out more, email us at nbburfish@gmail.com, or call us at 630-887-4700.
