We wanted to take this oppor-tuna-ty to tell you about our next Fresh Flight Fish supplier. We’re not squidding around when we say that it doesn’t take a brain sturgeon to know that Favco is dolphinitely one of the best.
Fish puns aside, they really are great. I trout you can find better seafood in Alaska than the offerings from Favco. That was the last one, I promise. As you’ve probably gathered, Favco is the subject of this blog and there’s nothing fishy about this fish business.
Favco has a monopoly on Alaskan geographic-based perfection. Perfectly situated in Anchorage, they are the transportation hub for the best seafood fished fresh from the North Pacific. All that and they’ve got heaps of genuine good-old-fashioned experience.
Did we mention how clean this place is? Oh man. You know that feeling you get when you take a pressure washer to a dirty part of your driveway and think “Wow! Look how clean that spot is.” Or that feeling of pride you get after washing your new car for the first time? They get the pleasure of having that feeling every single day when the dedicated Facvo team meticulously scrubs every inch of their facility. Its facility is approved and inspected regularly by private companies as well as officials from the city, state and federal government.
What kind of fresh fish do we get from this sparkling facility every day? Stop in one of locations almost any day and you will see their famous fresh Alaskan cod presented with pride in our seafood case. If you’re reading this in April then you’ve most likely noticed the sweet white perfection that is halibut. Eat it poached, broiled, baked with butter or try this halibut recipe from Festival Foods’ registered dietitian and chef Julie Andrews.
Our famous fresh Copper River Sockeye Salmon comes from Favco and man that’s good salmon! Rich and red, it’s almost a shame to season this fish before you cook it. With such rich flavor, all it needs is a dash of salt and pepper before cooked via method of your choice. We’ve got you covered with this recipe from George.
