Attention Foodies, Vegans, Pescatarians & All in Between… Big & Small, people of all ages, I would like to introduce myself…

I am Johnny Nalbandian, a 40-year Seafood/Fish monger who has loved every minute of it. Since my eyes light up every time I talk about anything that swims, calls me “Mr. Seafood” & my pleasure will be as it has been for the last four decades…to excite folks of all ages about Seafood & Fish from around the world. I developed my Famous Marinade at a tender age of 19 when I entered one of America’s first industries. I would like to share this with you in time for the upcoming BBQ season. My favorite fire for fish is Mesquite Wood Sizzling Hot. My sauce is not only for the Barby. You can also enjoy it baking, broiling & even as a quick sauté. For you landlubbers it is equally delicious on meats & poultry, especially Pork. Master Chefs have enjoyed my recipe for many years and very soon you will be able to purchase my marinade in your favorite markets as well as online. Now get off the couch, invite some fun foodies over and enjoy our species pick for May, “King” Chinook Salmon and Alaskan Halibut.
