Since we live in Dayton, Ohio, and have a hard time finding affordable, fresh, good quality seafood, I’ve been looking for shortcuts to get good quality fish to eat. I want to add more seafood to our diet, and I want the best quality but 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.
KnowSeafood is a lovely delivery option. I have tried other services, but the variety just isn’t there.
Each seafood serving arrived flash frozen with dry ice and regular ice. All the packing material 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. The a la carte option is exciting too!
I like that I don’t have to have a monthly subscription to KnowSeafood. I can pick and choose or order a curated box whenever I want.
Shrimp, Norwegian salmon, rainbow trout, bay scallops, lobster tail, tuna poke, and wild haddock.
The shrimp weren’t all that exciting, but they were better than what we’ve been buying at our local grocery store. They were better next time when I brined them and better still the third time when I marinated them.
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 (and everything)! We also want good wine at good prices. We miss Europe where it seemed easier to find fresh food and good wine.
Growing up, seafood was for vacations, holidays, and only dining out. It was expensive and my mom didn’t know how to cook it really. We often have no special occasions other than any regular day for seafood and wine. We make lots of delicious food every day of the week, depending on our schedule. Seafood only takes minutes to prep and cook!
We made scallops and lobster tails for Memorial Day.
I grilled the trout with veggies for myself and my daughter.
I just made a mild teriyaki tuna avocado poke and it was a hit!
One of our favorites is this grilled branzino with olives!
I made a healthier grilled version of furikaki mahi mahi and it was amazing!
I used a recipe on the website to make oven-fried fish and chips and it was a hit with the whole family!
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 to order mahi mahi when it’s in stock.
KnowSeafood 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. No monthly subscriptions required! They often have BOGO and deals they post online on their site and on social media.
We just ordered the grill box and I can’t wait to try it!
