Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients and may I say BRAVO to all the home chefs out there who have been cooking up a culinary tempest.

Seriously you guys and gals have been nothing but impressive regarding your cooking "chops" and your ability to speak "Chef" in your own kitchen. Why just yesterday, William from Whitehouse was telling me about the dishes he created last week for his family and then it happened, he started speaking chef and saying things like "...well, I looked at the reservations on the book (his family of four) and saw I had a four-top of VIPs. Well, I started my mise en place (French for "everything in its place" or prep work before cooking) and by the time service came the clock got away from me and before I knew it I was in the weeds (a term used for falling behind in the kitchen). Now you know I always do my Sole Veronique A la minute ( French for "in the minute,") but my..." I had to stop him there and say "Whoa big cat, I can't even digest the amount of Chef Speak you just Brunoised (French term for fine chopping) on me. By the way, what do you do for a living when you're not "bamming" it like Emeril Lagasse in your kitchen?" and without a beat, he said, "Oh, I'm a Bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing clerk but my real passion is writing haiku." I did not see that coming, no not the Bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing part, the haiku was what really melted my brain (full disclosure, I'm a fan of the 5-7-5 format).

 

Well either way, to all the folks out there feeling your Little Chef growing into a Bigger Chef (sorry, that sounds wrong but you know what I mean) I am super stoked to have new contemporaries to chat with regarding cooking techniques and the merits of an Egg Cuber (just kidding there is no merits to eating squared hard-boiled eggs). And to William, I hope you will enjoy my haiku, "Now that you can cook, Here are today's recipes, Cook your heart out dude." Sorry, it's no Willy Shakespeare but all in all a solid haiku. Oh, I almost forgot, here are the recipes I promised; Grilled Halibut over a Zucchini Arugula Salad   &   Grilled Whole Red Snapper with a Lemon Basil Drizzle. All kidding aside, these dishes sound "Chefy" but are quite easy. In closing please know that whether you are a seasoned Little Chef or just a "I make a good Ramen" cook, the staff at Metro is eager to help you create delicious and healthy meals for you and your loved ones.  Please just ask us for any guidance at all but remember should you start wearing a chef coat in the house, you must also wear pants, even during your "Little Chef" zoom party.

Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients and as we go through this difficult time together, we cannot thank you enough for your support. ​​   Honestly, the most difficult part of this terrible situation is that we cannot take care of all of you the way we so genuinely love to. So for anyone who was not able to place a curbside pick-up last week we offer our most humble apologies. You, our friends and clients mean the world to us and we will never forget how your kindness and patronage has allowed us to be your Fishmongers for the last 31 years.

March 17, 2020

I would like to reassure all of you that we continue to take the utmost precaution to keep you and our employees safe during these times with continuous sanitizing measures prescribed by the CDC and observing all social distancing guidelines in the hopes of curtailing the spread of the Coronavirus. That said, thankfully the availability of fresh and healthy seafood is continuing to come into the market to feed our community. The Fulton Fish Market itself has been diligent in its cleaning practices and even has installed automatic hand sanitizing dispensers throughout the market. Having said this, please know that Metropolitan Seafood will continue to operate during our regular business hours (both Fresh Fish and Take-Out) and observing all curfews when issued.

February 7, 2020

This friend was writing a "food" column and asked if I could give some "beginners" tips on how to purchase fish. She then proceeded to inform me that I am an expert on the subject to which I was humbled and extremely flattered. By the way, flattery is wildly underrated and dare I say we all might want to exercise this skill a little more in our everyday life. For example when my wife might want me to do something that she knows is going to put me through a personal hell, she often opens with "Hey, have you lost weight tiger?" Hello and Roar and all I heard was I look skinny and am likened to a awesome jungle cat. At this point she could ask me to take her mother to an off-season Christmas store and shop for Tchotchkes...yes, that would be hell but I also would be prowling...
