The latest from Gemini Fish

I APOLOGIZE FOR THE DELAY IN THE EMAIL, GUYS. FIRST DAY OF WHAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE A MINI VACATION AND I'VE GOT A KID WITH MIGRAINE AND COMPUTER ISSUES! NOT ONLY THAT, IT MUST BE SEAFAIR 'CAUSE IT'S CLOUDY AND MISTING OUTSIDE! YAY, SUMMER!
BUT ENOUGH WITH MY PROBLEMS...LET'S TALK ABOUT FISH!

WE'VE GOT SOME AWESOME VARIETY THIS WEEKEND AND AS IS OFTEN THE CASE IN THE SUMMER MONTHS,
SALMON IS THE CENTERPIECE!!

WE GOT A SMOKIN' DEAL ON SOME
BIG FAT WASHINGTON TROLL-CAUGHT
WHITE KING SALMON THAT ARE ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS AND AS IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE WITH WASHINGTON "WHITES (MARBLED)" KING, THESE ARE TRUE WHITES AND REALLY FATTY!
WHOLE FISH...$13.99LB FILLET...$24.99LB
WHILE SUPPLY LASTS AND THE SUPPLY IS LIMITED!

I KNOW SOME OF YOU ARE FREAKED OUT BY THE WHITE KING. SALMON IS SUPPOSED TO BE RED, YOU SAY.
WELL, FOR YOU, WE'VE HAVE GOT SOME BEAUTIFUL HUGE 18-UP NORTHERN CALIFORNIAN/SOUTHERN OREGON RED KINGS! THESE FISH ARE ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL AND WE DON'T SEE A TON OF THEM UP HERE AS IT'S A MORE LIMITED FISHERY THAN SOME OF THE NORTHERN WATERS. TYPICALLY THESE FISH HAVE A BRIGHT RED MEAT COLOR SUPPOSEDLY DUE TO THE SHRIMP CONSUMPTION DOWN THERE. I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S TRUE, BUT THEY SURE ARE PRETTY AND ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!

THE NICEST SOCKEYE WE'VE SEEN YET ARE IN THE HOUSE THIS WEEKEND!! FRESH SALT-CAUGHT IN THE STRAIGHT OF JUAN DE FUCA, THESE FISH ARE PROBABLY HEADED TO THE FRASER RIVER
WHICH PRODUCES SOME MIGHTY FINE SOCKEYE!! COOLEST THING ABOUT THESE FISH IS THAT BY SOCKEYE STANDARDS, THEY ARE HUGE!! WE'RE GETTING GRADED FISH 6-9LBS THAT HAVE SOME GREAT FAT CONTENT! BEING A KING GUY, IT TAKES A SPECIAL SOCKEYE TO MAKE ME WANT TO TAKE IT HOME TO DINNER, BUT THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I DID LAST NIGHT AND IT WAS AMAZING!! THE COOL THING ABOUT SOCKEYE IS THAT WITH ALL THAT EXTRA FLAVOR YOU CAN DO COOL RUBS AND GLAZES THAT I WOULDN'T NORMALLY SUGGEST WITH KING SO LAST NIGHT WAS SOY, SESAME, MAPLE SYRUP, GARLIC AND A SHOT OF MAKER'S MARK...PUT ONE IN THE GLAZE TOO! GOOD STUFF!

BEFORE I GO ON WITH THE UNPRECEDENTED SEAFAIR SEAFOOD VARIETY, I'VE GOT TO MENTION A COUPLE THINGS...

FIRST, GEMINI FISH TOO WILL BE AT GEMINI FISH MARKET SERVING UP DELICIOUS FISH & CHIPS
AND FISH TACOS
TODAY AND TOMORROW FROM 11-5ISH.
EVERYBODY GETS MAD 'CAUSE THE TRUCK IS NEVER OPERATING AT THE SHOP ANYMORE. WELL HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO SHOW US THAT IT'S WORTH WHILE TO OPEN THE DOORS AT HOME INSTEAD OF RUNNING AROUND ALL THE TIME! COME ON DOWN AND HAVE GEMINI MAKE YOUR LUNCH OR DINNER OR BOTH!!

SECONDLY, WE GOT OUR HANDS ON SOME TREASURES FROM JUBILEE FARM!!
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT MY GARDEN IS A COUPLE WEEKS AWAY FROM POPPING AND I'VE BEEN JONESING FOR SOME FRESH LOCAL PRODUCE!! WE'VE GOT KILLER FRESH HEIRLOOM TOMATOES AND BEAUTIFUL SUMMER SQUASH JUST IN FROM JUBILEE IN CARNATION!! THE TOMATOES ARE SO SWEET YOU CAN'T EVEN STAND IT!! FIRST DAY WE GOT 'EM, BREAKFAST WAS A SLICED JAPANESE BLACK TRIFELE (THE DARK ONES) WITH A SPLASH OF BALSAMIC AND SOME KOSHER SALT!!
UNBELIEVABLE!!

MY STORY HAS BECOME TIRESOME SO I'M JUST GONNA RATTLE OFF SOME OF THE COOL STUFF WE HAVE FOR THE WEEKEND!!

MSC CHILEAN SEA BASS FILLET OUT OF A REALLY BIG FISH!!

FRESH ARCTIC CHAR OUT OF WASHINGTON...LARGER FILLETS

BEAUTIFUL BIG SHORTRAKER ROCKFISH AND SOME ROUGHEYE TOO!!

FRESH LOCAL TRUE COD

AMAZING SWORDFISH AND SASHIMI AHI OUT OF HAWAII

KING OF THE NORTH!!
NOT A CHARACTER FROM GAME OF THRONES, BUT A DELICIOUS TRIPLOID SHOOTING OYSTER FROM WILLAPA BAY!SUPPOSED TO BE AWESOME, BUT I HAVEN'T TRIED THEM YET! IN THE SUMMERTIME, OUR LOCAL OYSTERS GO INTO SPAWN AND THEY CAN GET KIND OF MILKY, MUSHY, AND JUST PLAIN GROSS!
THIS IS WHY WE TRY TO GO TO TRIPLOIDS THAT DON'T SPAWN DURING OUR WARM SUMMER MONTHS!!
AND GET THIS...THEY'RE ONLY $1.25 EACH COMPARED TO THE OTHERS THAT TYPICALLY RUN $1.75EA.

LOTS OF OTHER COOL STUFF ON THE WAY FOR THE WEEKEND BUT I'VE RAMBLED TOO LONG!
