grilling fish

WILD MIDWEEK FRESH SPECIALS 9/20-22

Mild fallish weather this week, we should have plenty of great days for grilling ahead. We have lots of items for grilling on deal, ask us for ideas.

Fish cooks fast, grilled 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

From one of the world's best managed, fisheries, this mild, tasty fish is a real family favorite. Check out some of our favorite Cod Recipes HERE. When our kids were little, they loved Crumby Scrod. (We adults love it too, still make it). 

WILD DRY-PACK SEA SCALLOPS

Reg. $34.95/lb. SALE $32.95/lb.*

We call them the candy of the sea, because they're sweet and wonderful. They cook quickly - we toss them in a baggie of seasoned flour and saute in a little olive oil and butter. Serve over rice or pasta. A serving of scallops can be just 3-4, so a pound goes a long way. Click HERE for more scallop recipes.

NB: Wild sea scallops are not uniform in size or shape. Cheap uniform-looking scallops are most likely fake, or "wet pack" with moisture-holding chemicals added. 

WILD ALASKAN HALIBUT

Was $40.95/lb. SALE $38.95/lb.

We keep getting told that the season is over, but then we get offered halibut. Go figure, It's been a really long season, wonderful for halibut lovers. Great on the grill.

Spectacular for grilling or sear and bake - serve with a pay of herb butter, or ask us for some complimentary grilling sauces from Stonewall Kitchens. something fruity and tropical is usually perfect.

ARTICHOKE PESTO

Great for lunch, a tasty side dish for dinner. Your starch and veggies all in one dish - just heat and serve. (We recommend warming in the oven rather than the microwave.) 

OVEN ROASTED

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.

   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.
