IN THIS ISSUE...
WE WILL BE GETTING OUR FIRST WILD ALASKAN KING SALMON IN THIS FRIDAY - SUPPLY WILL BE LIMITED, SO WE RECOMMEND PLACING AN ORDER - 630-887-4700
MAY 8TH IS ALL FOR MOM...
MOTHER'S DAY IDEAS:
SOFT SHELLS - TREAT HER WELL, SHE DESERVES IT! 
This Sunday will be a Mother's Day when families can reunite after 2 years of isolation for many. We're here to help you plan something super special for that special lady - something Dad and the kids can wow her with. Do it for Mom! 
Soft Shell Crabs are here this weekend -- a delicious way to say "Mom, we think you're really special!" Great served simply sauteed as an appetizer, with rice pilaf for a main course, or on a bun with our Stone Ground Mustard Sauce, some fresh greens and a squeeze of lemon. 
SUPPLY WILL BE LIMITED - we recommend that you call ahead to place an order, 630-887-4700. Check out our soft shell cooking video here: How to cook softshell crabs.
Other ideas for Mom:  
BRUNCH IDEAS: Make Mom some great eggs scrambled up with some Ducktrap smoked salmon and fresh chives -- elegant and easy! 
Here are some more ideas for feeding the family while Mom puts her feet up: 
1) Poached Egg on a Crab Cake -- all you need is an English muffin, lightly toasted, a freshly poached egg, a Burhop's crab cake, and our Stone Ground Mustard Sauce. Saute the crab cake, place on the toasted half muffin, top with the poached egg and a dollop of mustard sauce. Mom will love you for it. You'll love you for it. (Make one for yourself).
2) Poached Salmon Fillets -- beautifully simmered in an authentic court bouillon. Comes with our own Sour Cream Dill Sauce. Serve with a green salad and our Herb Roasted Potatoes. (24 hours notice required for poaching). Have us make up a party tray, or take it home and put it on your own platter. To order party trays on line, CLICK HERE. (A party without a Burhop's Party Tray is just a meeting.)
3) Burhop's Cocktail Shrimp -- freshly cooked daily in-store with our own blend of spices. Order a Shrimp Tray to pass, or just buy a bunch and serve with a bowl of our famous Cocktail Sauce. 
4) Burhop's Spreads -- Smoked Salmon, Crab Blend, Smoked Whitefish or Shrimp -- just put in a bowl & add crackers. An economical appetizer everyone will love.
5) Tuna Salad -- freshly made Cranberry Tuna - serve on a slice of fresh cantaloupe with some slices of our fresh crusty bread. 
6) Lobster Rolls -- add some fruit salad and you have an amazing meal for Mom! Comes with a small serving of our Creamy Coleslaw.
7) Mussels -- our raised mussels are sweet and clean, ready to cook. Check out our many wonderful mussel recipes HERE.. Mussels are fun to eat, delicious, and incredibly good for you, high in omega 3s. 
8) Burhop's Crab Cakes or Salmon Burgers - do them on the grill or on the stove -- they come with our Stone Ground Mustard Sauce.
Ask us for ideas!
Salmon Kabobs
For Dinner: 
Grill up something wonderful for mom on her special day -- fish that are great on the grill include halibut, tuna, salmon, char, mahi mahi, grouper, swordfish, ono and marlin, all nice, meaty fish that hold together well when grilled. Ask us for grilling sauces and toppings that go with your choice of fish, plus our fresh side dishes. 
OVEN READY ENTREES: 
DAD & KIDS CAN COOK THESE FOR MOM -
NO PROBLEM!  
Our freshly made entrees are just the ticket for Mother's Day - easy to make and absolutely delicious! If you can turn on the oven or fire up the grill, you can make any of these...

Fresh Salmon Kebabs - Great for Grilling 
Just rub with a little olive oil or one of our many marinades or grilling sauces and toss on the grill for about 8 minutes. So easy, so delicious! 
NB: We can make kebabs with a variety of fish, like swordfish, tuna, shrimp etc. Just call and place an order, we'll make them just for you. 
BURHOP'S SALMON COZIES
An elegant way to tell Mom she's the best -- fresh salmon fillets wrapped in puff pastry with fresh spinach and herbs. Just follow the simple baking directions and serve with the Lemon Dill Sauce (included). Mom will be so impressed. 
STUFFED SALMON; SOLE, TROUT OR TILAPIA BY SPECIAL ORDER
Choose your fish - salmon, sole, trout or tilapia - then choose your freshly made Burhop's stuffing! Choices are:
Spinach Florentine
Shrimp & Caper
Portobello Mushroom
Blue Crab
We generally just stuff salmon in advance, but will happily stuff trout, sole or tilapia if you call and place an order. All stuffed entrees come with a container of Lemon Dill Sauce.
BURHOP'S SALMON PAPILLOTES
Tasty salmon fillets topped with Roasted Ratatouille and wrapped in parchment, the perfect dinner present for Mom!

IT'S ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO CALL AHEAD AND PLACE A SPECIAL ORDER TO MAKE SURE YOU GET WHAT YOU WANT, 
630-887-4700
WE GET FRESH DAILY...
You my have noticed the new staff t-shirts with this message on the back - they'll be wearing them more when the weather stays warm. Unlike other stores, we get fresh fish deliveries every day except Sunday (our suppliers don't deliver Sunday, or we would get it on Sunday as well). Other stores generally get their fish delivered once or twice a week - which means fish may sit in their cases for days. It is our policy to sell out most of our fish daily, which is why we encourage people to order ahead, to avoid disappointment.
There are tasty aged meats, cheeses and wines, but not tasty aged fresh fish.
With fish, freshness is the key to your success.
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.

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!

Pick up some suggested party menu ideas the next time you're in the store - enjoy your guests, let us do the work!
   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.
