Fresh Salmon Makes for Better Tasting Dishes

Growing up in Hawaii, eating fresh fish on a daily basis was very common. Over the years I have acquired many recipes that taste their best when fresh fish is used. It was never a problem getting fresh salmon and seafood when I lived in the Hawaiian Islands and I pretty much took it for grant it until my job relocated me to New Mexico.

I love many things about living in New Mexico. I am able to live in a larger house and even though the scenery was so different from my native island home, it is still as beautiful. There was not much I did not like about it until I decided to throw a party with a Hawaiian theme and realized that the local super markets did not carry the fresh ingredients that I needed for the party. I was especially disappointed that I could not buy fresh king salmon for a special Hawaiian dish called Poke that I wanted all my new friends to try.

Frustrated with my shopping selection at the grocery store, I decided to look for a site that I could buy salmon online. In a few minutes of surfing the web, I found Giovanni’s fish market. I was so excited that I could not only get fresh salmon delivered to my home, they also carried fresh dungennes crab too.

The next day my fresh seafood and fresh king salmon was delivered. The quality of fish and crab was impeccable. I could not have found fresher seafood unless I was back on the Hawaiian Islands. Needless to say the party was a huge success and my friends could not get over how good everything tasted. They all wanted to know my secret, so I told them about this site. Now, many of my friends are also only using fresh salmon fillet in their favorite recipes too.

How to Get Fresh King Salmon in the Midwest

Those who live in the Midwest are land locked and use to not have access to fresh salmon. Times have now changed with Giovanni’s fish market now shipping fresh seafood to the Midwest. It just takes the click of a mouse and your order will be shipped overnight.

One thing that many caterers in the Midwest have problems with is getting fresh salmon fish. Caterers and home cooks alike use to be stuck with buying frozen fish at the local super market. One never knew how long the fish had been in the freezer and if a grocery store did offer salmon that was thawed, you never knew how long it had been in the display case. Not to mention if the fish was even wild caught or if it was farm raised.

Now Giovanni’s offers its customers the ability to purchase fresh salmon online. There is no waiting in line at the seafood counter at your local Midwest grocery store. One knows where the fresh salmon was caught. The best advantage is that the fish is shipped overnight right to your door. This has made many of us that live in the Midwest happy to be able to get fresh fish and seafood any time of year.

There is no substitute when one has cooked and tasted fresh caught salmon fillet. Many home cooks and chefs prefer to only prepare the freshest food for their family and clients. Now being able to buy salmon on the internet is changing the way many of us eat in the Midwest. With many of us wanting to only cook with the freshest ingredients, ordering fresh fish and seafood online is the only way to go when one lives in the Midwest. The quality of the fish and seafood and the great prices have now made fresh fish easy to obtain in landlocked areas.
