This Week’s Seafood Order: Haddock – New Bedford, MA (order by Dec. 8)

haddockThis week’s fresh wild caught fish offering is Haddock from New Bedford, MA. From our Sea to Table connection, “Haddock is a perfect substitute for cod, whose stock levels are extremely unsustainable in the Atlantic, and is readily found around New England year-round. Haddock meat cooks up very white and has a delicate and slightly sweet taste. The texture is firm, tender and has a finer flake than cod.”

Haddock fillet skin off (5-8oz): $18.50/lb.
(order by the pound)
