    0 The Manhattan Meat Market offers more than just meat!

    Norwegian and fresh caught salmon, dry scallops, Mahi Mahi, Arctic Char, Rainbow Trout, Monkfish, Ahi Tuna, Hamachi and Bronzini are just a sampling of the fresh seafood specials that arrive at the market weekly.  With our seafood coming to us within days after being out of the water, our supply chain is much more direct than in a grocery store setting, allowing us to provide our customers with the highest caliber of seafood you will find in Manhattan.

    Ahi Tuna Poke
    0 Ahi Tuna Poke

    This week we have sourced a shipment of sushi grade ahi tuna. This tuna is very fresh and always goes particularly fast whenever we offer it, so we encourage you to come in soon if you intend to get some. Ahi lends itself best to raw or barely cooked presentations. This week I have featured a dish that has been increasingly popular the past few years, poke.

    Poke is a traditional Hawaiian dish that has undergone a great deal of innovation and changes in its preparation as it has spread across th...

    Rockfish a la Meuniere
    0 Rockfish a la Meuniere

    This week we have a shipment of rockfish from the Chesapeake Bay. Also known as striped bass, rockfish is one of the most prized fish from the eastern seaboard. The fish has mild to medium flavor, and a large white flake. Rockfish is a versatile fish that takes well to most cooking methods, though its flakey needs makes it better suited the pan or oven than to grilling.

    As we continue our Lenten journey through cuisines with a strong Catholic it is time for a stop off in a country with a revere...

    This week we have fresh swordfish. While this weeks shipment was wild caught in the Pacific swordfish is also widely available in the Mediterranean, and has an important place in the cuisine of many Medi...

    December 5 Weekly Seafood Special: Striped Bass
    0 December 5 Weekly Seafood Special: Striped Bass

    While most midwesterners know striped bass as a fresh water fish, it is naturally a migratory fish spending most of its  life in salt water along the coast and migrating up river to spawn. This week we are happy to have a catch of Atlantic striped bass. Striped bass has a medium to mild flavor and a large white flake. It is sturdy enough to grill or saute. I recommend sauteing this fish skin on and crispy.

    I also recommend making a celery root puree. Known as celeriac, celery root is lightly s...

    Bacon Wrapped Monkfish - from Chef Eli
    0 Bacon Wrapped Monkfish - from Chef Eli

    A relatively unknown fish to many midwesterners, Monkfish tastes so close to lobster it has often been called ‘a poor man’s lobster’. The sweetness of this fish means it goes great with smokey and salty pork products. Last time we had this fish I put together a recipe to bacon wrap the filets. It had been a few years since I had cooked this dish, and taste wise I was incredibly happy with the results. 

    Enjoy your cooking,
    Chef Eli
