The fresh Oregon Chinook season is open and these magnificent tasting fish are in the market. The supply is starting out slow but we have a limited supply daily. As the season gets fully underway we should have more, but this is a special fish that is limited and in high demand. These troll-caught wild salmon have a delicious flavor, are loaded with nutritious omega-3's, and provide a perfect firm texture that makes this the king of the Pacific Northwest salmon. Stop in early or call ahead to be sure we have what you need. You can enjoy the bounty of the Oregon Chinook through September - don't miss it!
We would choose the fresh Oregon Chinook over Copper River chinook any day! The popularity of the Copper River chinook has grown as Alaska has increased their marketing efforts. The Copper River chinook season has opened but the price is very high so we won't bring it in until that comes down. Newman's has a wide selection of salmon and we invite you to chat with our team about the differences and to try them on your grill and see which you prefer.
Oregon Shrimpmeat season is back in full swing. The shrimp are sweet and delicious. We also have plenty of other shrimp in the market to use in stir-frys, soups, sauteed and served on top of pasta, and grilled or sauteed as appetizers.
We have a good supply of halibut in the market. There are so many ways to prepare this versatile firm white fish. It is great on the BBQ and also good baked in the oven.
Petrale Sole should continue to show up on a regular basis for the short-term future. The catch has been pretty consistent to date. This will potentially be affected if weather systems keep the boats off the water.
Also, high quality, fileted-by-hand, hook and line Rockfish, Ling Cod, and Black Cod are plentiful. The texture and appearance of trolling, hook and line caught fish is superior to trawl (net) caught. The quality is firmer and the flavor tends to be slightly sweeter and milder.
We will keep you posted of upcoming seafood seasons as we get the information from our fishermen. Razor Clam fans should stop in or call the market to see if we have a supply as their availability is subject to the tides and weather.
