Seafood Staples

Below is a list of seafood kitchen staples that we always have on hand for easy, quick seafood meals.


  • Lump and jumbo lump crab meat
  • Atlantic Sea Farms fermented seaweed salad, sea-chi and sea beet kraut
  • We purchase fresh seafood (most often tuna, salmon, cod or haddock, mussels and scallops) from our local fish market, The Clam Man, once or twice a week
  • We also try to purchase fresh seafood “at the docks” straight from the fishermen and women, as often as we can
  • If you do not have a local fish market or a place to purchase very fresh fish, Fulton Fish Market is a great option – they deliver nationwide. After you place your order, you can receive your seafood in as little as 48 hours



  • Canned salmon
  • Canned tuna (we prefer tuna in olive oil) – we love Ocean Naturals
  • Tinned sardines and anchovies
