Since we live in Dayton, Ohio, and have a hard time finding affordable and fresh seafood, I’ve been looking for shortcuts to get good quality fish to eat. I want to add more seafood to our diet, but I want the best quality and it does get expensive.
There are a couple fish markets, a couple local grocery stores with pricey fresh seafood, and Jungle Jim’s about an hour away that have good fresh seafood selections and we use those on special occasions. But I still want other options.
I like that I don’t have to have a monthly subscription to Know Seafood. I can pick and choose or order a curated box whenever I want.
Everything arrived flash frozen with dry ice and regular ice. Everything is recyclable and very little plastic and no styrofoam!
I love the sustainability practices and that I know exactly where my fish and seafood came from.
I chose a curated box for variety for our first order.
Shrimp, Norwegian salmon, rainbow trout, bay scallops, lobster tail, tuna poke, and wild haddock.
The shrimp weren’t that exciting, but they were better than what we’ve been buying at our local grocery store.
We marinated haddock with Greek herbs and olive oil and grilled on a cedar plank. I skewered veggies separate and grilled garlic shrimp.
I like the flavor of haddock with light herbs and oil. It’s very versatile. My son even liked it so we will order more next time.
The salmon was perfect portions! I did a mustard glaze and baked in the oven.
Back for more haddock! I baked it in the oven for tacos and that was truly amazing! I made mango pineapple salsa and I could’ve eaten lots more.
We do a monthly subscription to wine with Firstleaf and I love that and the specials with free shipping on orders of twelve bottles. Wine pairs well with seafood! We also want good wine at good prices. We miss Europe where it seemed easier to find fresh food and good wine.
We still have scallops and lobster tails to try and I have to realize we have no special occasions other than any regular day.
I want to make a fun tuna avocado poke with the tuna steak. I have several options for the trout for myself and my daughter.
Their Facebook group for KnowBuddies offers lots of fun recipes and great ideas to inspire us. We’re eating more seafood and feeling healthier and more energetic. We have fresher options for variety that I don’t often find in our grocery store.
I’m on a waiting list for mahi mahi. Know Seafood gets in a variety and updates their site often. I like the curated boxes and I can add onto those or make my own order. They often have BOGO and deals they post online on their site and on social media.
