Yankee Magazine Weighs in on Atlantic Seafood Market

“This market is the seafood gem of the lower Connecticut River valley. Owned by Lisa Feinman, everything here is as fresh as it can be. CIA-trained resident chef Jerry Doran and his staff cut all their fish fresh and make all their prepared seafood delights from scratch every day. Late spring is a good time to pay a visit, when the shad are running up the Connecticut River and fresh shad and shad roe are in plentiful supply.”

A Spring Salmon Sensation

“Tweet tweet!” The voice of a robin pierces the mild air. The snow melts to reveal muddy, thawed earth just beginning to sprout grass. Daffodils have sprung from the soil and are budding, soon to burst into their vibrant yellow. Finally, it is spring! At Atlantic Seafood, spring means that one certain type of fish will be flying out of the cases – salmon.   The various types of super – nutritious and tasty salmon1 can star in a vast assortment of spring meals3.

Any given salmon is first categorized by the ocean to which it is native. While the Atlantic Ocean is home to one species of migratory salmon, the Pacific Ocean boasts five. These five types of Pacific salmon include chum, coho (silver), pink, chinook (king) and sockeye (red) – sockeye being the smallest and chinook being the largest. Pink salmon, known to have a lower proportion of fat than most salmon types, is usually canned. The fat content of silver salmon is moderate, while sockeye and chinook are the highest in fat and popular in cooking. The rich flesh of salmon can be orange or red but usually is pink1.
