FRESH SPANISH MACKEREL FILLETS
Was $18.95/lb. 
SALE $16.95/lb.*
A firm, flavorful fish, mackerel lends itself to grilling, baking or broiling. (In Spain, they cook it for you on the beach - amazing). High in omega 3s, it's good for you as well as delicious! 

Here's a simple grilled mackerel recipe that tastes great:
Garlic Grilled Mackerel
Ingredients:
2 medium mackerel, filleted, skin on
5 or 6 garlic cloves, crushed
4 ounces butter
Salt
Pepper
1 or 2 limes
Directions:
Preheat an outdoor grill to medium high heat and oil the grate with a brush or towel.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the crushed garlic.
Make 3 deep cuts on each side of the fish. Season fillets generously with salt and pepper. Place flesh side-down and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip fish over and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from grill and brush with some of the garlic butter (about 2 tablespoons).
Squeeze 1/2 of a lime over each fillet and serve immediately.

FRESH WILD 
SOFT SHELL CRABS
Were $9/each
SALE $8/each*
Available only in spring and summer, these tasty crustaceans make an amazing sandwich, a great first course, or do two per person for a main course. Don't know how to cook them? Check out our  Soft Shell Cooking Video HERE. NB: We clean the crabs for cooking - if you have uncleaned crabs from another source, the video doesn't tell how to clean them. 
 
NORWEGIAN STEELHEAD TROUT
Was $19.95/lb. 
SALE $17.95/lb.*
Wonderful for grilling or baking - we love it with a sprinkling of fresh herbs or some of our dried herbs from the Spice House, or grill it and top with some Poblano Pesto, on sale this week as well. Always add pesto towards the end of cooking, for the last minute or so.  

*While supplies last. Not good with other offers, discounts or coupons. 
PURE & SIMPLE DEALS 
Burhop's own Pure & Simple prepared foods are made here in our kitchen by Chef Jaime and various staff members under his direction. Our salads, sauces and side dishes don't come here in giant buckets from a distant warehouse. Many of our fresh ingredients come from local farmers, much of it organic. We
aim to make all our food both healthy and delicious.
NUTTY TUNA SALAD
Reg. $9.95/lb.
SALE $7.95/lb.* 
Great in a sandwich, on fruit slices, on crackers, stuffed into a fresh tomato, on a slice of cantaloupe. Contains pecans.
BURHOP'S FRESH 
POBLANO PESTO $2 OFF/lb.
Reg. $8.95/lb. SALE $6.95/lb.*
Jaime can take just about anything green and turn it into an amazing pesto -- his poblano pesto is a customer favorite, made with tasty (but not too spicy) peppers. It's great on grilled fish, tossed with shrimp and pasta, on toast points - and so good however you eat it!
