How do I thaw and cook my fish?

General thawing/cooking instructions can be found on our thawing/cooking page. See the product pages for specific cooking instructions. Don’t forget to visit our recipe page for cooking inspiration! 

Do you sell fresh fish?

We sell frozen and tinned fish, which in most cases is fresher than “fresh fish” you get at the seafood counter. We carefully select and partner with producers who utilize cutting-edge freezing technology and production methods to its seafood at the peak of freshness. By harvesting from their natural waters and during a species' peak time of year, as well as freezing hours after harvest, it preserves the nutritional benefits, taste, and texture, giving you the market today.

Do you sell whole fish?

We sell no-hassle, ready to cook portions of fish which is more convenient and provides less waste. 

I want to feed a family of 4. How much should I buy?

The majority of our products feature (2) 6 oz. servings, which is perfect for two.


Our tinned fish come in a 3.9 oz. or 4 oz. tin, enough for one person’s meal or perfect to use as an appetizer to impress your guests! 

Is your fish ready to eat?

We offer ready to eat products - Smoked Norwegian Salmon, Smoked Norwegian Steelhead, Cooked American Shrimp, Salmon Sashimi, and our entire tinned line. While our sashimi and tinned line requires no thawing and can be enjoyed right out of the box. The rest of our ready to eat products require thawing.

Can I mix and match my bundle?

Our bundles are curated collections of our favorite fish -- so you can’t mix and match. You can always buy our frozen, ready to eat, and tinned seafood a la carte. 

How do I order three portions of salmon or any other seafood?

Most of our products have two potions (servings) apiece. If you need three, you’ll want to buy an additional. Don’t worry, though -- our frozen seafood is vacuumed sealed keeps in your home freezer for up to 6 months. And each portion is individually wrapped, so you can easily thaw them individually.
