Most of, if not all of our fish is sashimi quality and can be eaten raw (except for fish like Halibut and Sablefish). However, the FDA recommends freezing or curing the fish for consumption as sashimi. Please see the entry below for more details.
We label products as Sashimi Quality if they can be consumed raw. Of our Sashimi Quality products Salmon, and only salmon, is recommended to be cured before consuming raw. The easiest way is to freeze overnight or longer. You can also use a salt and vinegar cure. None of our fresh products have been frozen before unless otherwise specified in the product description.
When you place an order, we place a hold for a slightly higher order total on your card. This pending hold is replaced by the correct charge upon successful packing and delivery. This process ensures that suppliers can charge accurate weights for products (i.e. 1.24lb Fillet vs. 1lb Fillet ordered). If the user cancels the order or the payment hold is not captured, the authorization is cancelled and the funds are released back to the customer.
We're here to help! We're available during business (PST) hours at email@example.com.
Fresh cut fish are packed in the portion size indicated for that fish. Most fish are packed with a moisture wicking pad/paper and sealed in a plastic bag or container. We do not vacuum pack any fresh items processed at ABS. Frozen and dry goods are packed and sold in the size/portion indicated. Our team will pack each item carefully in an insulated container and include sufficient gel ice to keep your items cold. We do not use dry ice so some items that are packed frozen may not remain completely frozen upon delivery but are safe to immediately put in your freezer at home.
No, but it is preferred that someone be there to accept the package. Our drivers will provide contactless delivery by placing your order by the front door and ringing the doorbell before leaving.
