Metropolitan Meat, Seafood and Poultry
Market Update

Feature of the Week August 8, 2018


Swordfish has a mildly sweet flavor and a moist, meaty texture with moderately high fat content. The flesh can range from white or ivory to pink or orange. The color variations do not reflect quality. All Swordfish turn beige in color after cooking. It offers an impressive nutritional profile that includes an excellent source of protein, essential minerals and vitamins D & E.
Swordfish is one of the meatiest fish you will find, making it ideal for grilling and skewering, as well as other cooking methods that don't fare well with more delicate fish varieties. Swordfish is also a fantastic stewing fish because it remains firm and intact in the broth and won't dissolve. Use it as a component in something like Cioppino or another fish stew. It is also delicious in a fish chowder.

Let Metropolitan be your source for quality seafood week-in, week-out. 
Always fresh, always available, always delicious.
SALMON-No change. We should see some relief in the Chilean prices next week.
SWORD-Best bet. From Ecuador, Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Good Alternative rated.
TUNA-Staying steady.
HALIBUT-Supply is very limited.
ROCKFISH-Gone for now.
LOBSTERS-Holding steady. We have nice hard shells in place.
CRABMEAT-We got the green light to start shipping the fresh Venezuelan product again but we are only selling product that is using the HPP (High Pressure Processing) process. This process uses extreme pressure to kill all the unwanted stuff without changing the taste or texture of the meat. It also gives the product a longer shelf life. We also have domestic product available from Louisiana.
RED SHRIMP-Plenty in stock. All natural and untreated. From our regular supplier who is MSC certified.
GROUPER/SNAPPER-Will have for Friday delivery.
WAHOO-Came and went.
BLUE CATFISH-With the crazy weather pattern we’ve had this summer, the Blue Cat is still going strong.
