I have worked with this amazing company a few times now, and we have always been positively blown away by the quality of the seafood we've received. This blows any other seafood out of the water. (Cheesy pun totally intended.) Luckily, there is still time to order your own seafood in time for the 4th of July, since Anderson Seafoods ships quickly and provides reliable overnight delivery!
For those who are not familiar with Anderson Seafoods, here is a bit more about the company.
About Anderson Seafoods :
Yes, I said sustainable! All seafood companies are not created equal. Anderson Seafoods is a company with a conscience, and they care about the environmental impact of the fishing industry. Sustainable seafood is seafood from either fished or farmed sources that can maintain or increase production in the future without jeopardizing the ecosystems and communities from which it was acquired. Anderson Seafoods sources from suppliers who have this same vision and encourage those who do not, to have a better vision and become more sustainable. Anderson Seafoods is serious about its eco-impact. They do not do business with suppliers that overfish, deplete fish stocks or destroy their habitat. They have even partnered with the Aquarium of the Pacific in theSEAFOOD FOR THE FUTURE program, which will help support sustainable fishing practices by educating suppliers, and will also ensure healthier oceans for generations to come. As an eco-conscious consumer, this is something I can feel good about supporting!
In addition to Anderson Seafood's commitment to the environment, they also offer a huge selection of products sure to please even the pickiest of eaters, like myself! They have a wide variety of fish, crab, and even lobster. This company knows their seafood, and even supplies some of the top restaurants in the country! So if you've ever had a seafood dish that just melted in your mouth and made you have a "Food-Gasm", chances are, it came from Anderson Seafoods.
For those who cannot cook like a pro, they even offer some tasty looking, pre-made entrees that are prepared by expert chefs and guaranteed to be fresh. All of their products are of the highest quality, and if ordered online, will reach your doorstep the next day! They even have a "countdown timer" on their website that will let you know just how long you have to order to receive your seafood fresh the next morning. How cool is that?!
Recently we received an assortment of seafood to try. Among our choices were scallops, lobster tails, Mahi Mahi, Lake Superior Whitefish, and jumbo lump crab. As always, our shipment arrived with lightning speed and was very well packaged on dry ice.
Grilled Mahi Mahi Steaks and Bacon Wrapped Scallops :
These were very easy to make, which is great since I had never prepared or even tried scallops before. After marinating the scallops, you just wrap them with bacon that has had some of the fat rendered, and pop them in the oven until the scallops are opaque and the bacon has some crispiness to it. Because of the delicate nature of scallops and other seafoods, you definitely want to be sure of your timing so they don't become rubbery.
I had more scallops than bacon, so I made several "naked" scallops as well.
