When it comes to living in Colorado I don’t have many complaints. I don’t regret moving from Arizona up here and I definitely don’t miss those hot Arizona summers. There are a couple things that bother me, like when we get a big snow and I have to run inside on the treadmill. Doing an 18 mile run on a treadmill is brutal to say the least, thank God for the TV down in the basement! Binge watching cooking shows or movies helps a little, but it’s still not on my list of things I enjoy. Another thing I wish we had available to us is fresh seafood. My husband and I LOVE eating fish, but obviously living in a landlocked state the ability to have it fresh is pretty slim.
Often when I buy fish at the grocery store I wonder about it’s freshness, especially when it’s sitting in the store’s refrigerator or seafood case. I also don’t like that they’ll charge more for it even though I’m sure it was previously frozen anyways. Last week I had the opportunity to learn about and eat some of the fresh fish that was delivered to my door from Fulton Fish Market.
If you aren’t familiar with Fulton Fish Market, they are a 194 year old fish market located in Bronx, NY. They bring in between 1-2 million pounds of seafood 5 nights a week. Recently FultonFishMarket.com added the new feature of having fresh seafood shipped to your door which is perfect for those of us who don’t live near the ocean. There’s no middleman in the delivery of the fish and everything is hand-packed by their skilled fishmongers. When the halibut and red snapper that I ordered arrived it was perfectly chilled and packaged in a way that didn’t leave me feeling nervous about eating it. All of Fulton Fish Market’s fish are sustainable and they specialize in fish from US waters.
I was so excited to try the fresh halibut since it’s one of my favorite kinds of fish. If you’ve never had halibut it’s a mild fish that’s light and flakey. It doesn’t need much seasoning, in fact all I used for this Pan Seared Halibut with Rosemary Tomatoes and White Beans was kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. The recipe only requires using one skillet, it can be on the table in 20 minutes and it’s one of those healthy meals you just feel good about eating!
