U7 Wild African Saltwater Prawn - Head On Presentation

U7 Wild African Saltwater Prawn – Head On Presentation

In a few short weeks it will be Valentine’s Day. In frenzied pursuit of excellence, with the task of topping last year in mind, your patrons will plan for the biggest night out of the year. Will they ask your valet to “check the trunk for flowers and a note to sneak in… shhh…?” Will they beg your hostess to run across the street to the florist and have flowers on the table? Will they sneak a diamond ring into a glass of champagne? While we cannot be sure what they have in store for you, one thing is certain – we can be part of their decision – AND, if our customers are truly as important to us as we say they are, we can be part of their solution! Is February 14th Amateur Night? Maybe. Let’s forget about that this year, and let’s treat them like PROS!! And maybe.. just maybe.. they’ll stick around for your coaching all year. So, chin-up, eyes open, tell the front of the house to put their game face on – and line up 500 2-tops with your primo menu options this year. Let’s Get It On!

The Usual… Done Unusually Well
Experience tells us Valentine’s patrons want the ABC’s done to the nines! They want lobster, tuna, shrimp, and tenderloin. We know they probably won’t take a chance on the killer new Korean BBQ or Octopus Carpaccio dish you came up with this winter. Still, there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to have fun. Give them their lobster… But, why not Australian Spiny? Shrimp? We can get that done, but let’s go with New Zealand Scampi or U7 Wild African Salt Prawns. Tenderloin? Fresh American Bison grilled to perfection. Heritage pork? Yep – we have Duroc Red Hog all day! Easy, no frills white fish? Bronzino fillet fresh, direct from Greece… Let’s give them what they want and still blow their minds. This way we all have some fun. Here are the 2013 top picks from TeamSeafoodS:

Tahitian Tuna – “A Profitable Solution”

#1 Tahitian Tuna Cryovac Loin

Our Team was given a challenge in the second half of 2012 – “Consistent Ahi Tuna!” Everything was on the table… Price had to be consistent, quality had to be consistent, trim spec, shelf-life, packaging- EVERYTHING! We gladly accepted the challenge. Why not?? These types of solution-based programs are what we live for! It’s simple – We solve our customers’ problems day in and day out.

From July 2012 to January 11, 2013, SeafoodS.com has purchased over 13,000 pounds of Tahitian Ahi Tuna. We are pleased and humbled to report that through the hard work and support of key Customers, Fishermen, and Importers, the program is an overwhelming success! Out of the 13,000 pounds of tuna we have shipped to our customers, we have credited less than 200 pounds!! That is what we like to call quality and reliability.

We researched every market in the world to explore fishing practices, logistics in place, sustainability results, grading resources, and more. At the end of the day, Tahiti really stepped up for SeafoodS.com and our customers. Check out the program…

New Zealand Orange Roughy

Orange Roughy

New Zealand Orange Roughy

Orange Roughy swam its way to our American dinner tables back in the early 1980’s. Virtually unknown at the time, our national domestic retail fish buyers were looking for a substitute for the depleted whitefish stocks (cod and haddock) that match or equal to the texture (firm), color (white) flavor profile (mild) and price point. The biomass had to be large and the name had to be marketable and compatible to our American consumers buying habits. Orange Roughy my hero!
