Anderson Seafoods Review

Growing up in Florida with the bounty of the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, my family and I love good seafood! Thankfully, no matter where you live in the United States, Anderson Seafoods will deliver the freshest, highest restaurant quality seafood directly to your doorstep.

Anderson Seafoods was established in 1979 in California and has a network of sustainable seafood providers from Alaska, Mexico, Hawaii, Asia, South America, the Pacific Northwest, the East Coast and Canada. With intensive quality assurance standards in place and hand selected premiere shrimp, lobster, salmon, crab and more……. Anderson Seafoods is a leader in the industry and you can feel confident that you will receive the best seafood that our oceans have to offer.

There is a wide variety of seafood to choose from over at the Anderson Seafoods online retail store. At first, I was a bit apprehensive about ordering seafood online from across the country but the quality and freshness of my box from Anderson Seafoods well exceeded my expectations. My box of fresh seafood arrived via overnight delivery in an insulated cooler and all of the contents had arrived in perfect condition.

For our first dinner, we selected the fresh Loch Duart’s Salmon from Scotland which is farm raised without any growth hormones or antibiotics and uses traditional practices. I decided to bake our salmon with just a bit of sea salt, fresh dill from our garden and lemon juice. Both my husband and I agree that this is the best piece of salmon that we have ever tasted in our lives. It was succulent, fresh, had no “fishy” taste and it was simply delicious. We enjoyed every morsel of this fish and wanted more…….in my opinion this was even better than salmon served to us in the finest restaurants.

At my son’s birthday party, I served the Ahi Tuna Potstickers to the delight of my guests. These appetizers were literally gone within just a few minutes so I only had one to try for myself and it was certainly memorable. These traditional potstickers were stuffed full of Ahi Tuna and a tasty blend of lightly crunchy vegetables and water chestnuts and Panko breadcrumbs. The seasonings really elevated the flavors to make this a scrumptious appetizer. You can steam or microwave these potstickers but I chose to lightly pan fry in olive oil which gave it a wonderful golden brown color and crispy outside. At only $12.38 for a 12 ounce package, this is a real bargain.

The highlight of the party for my husband, mom and sister was the Scottish Cold Smoked Salmon which they enjoyed atop egg bagels and cream cheese. This was very easy to serve and there were absolutely no bones at all in this fully trimmed salmon. My mom is originally from New York City and has eaten a lot of smoked salmon in her life. She declared this the best smoked salmon that she has ever eaten! There was a generous portion to serve my guests and a 4 ounce serving is only $14.95.

Finally, we enjoyed a dinner of Szechuan Shrimp which was filled with juicy shrimp and vegetables to which I added a bowl of brown rice. It made the perfect meal for two and it had a very tasty bold, spice flavor without being too hot. This is a great “go to” meal that takes only 10 minutes to prepare on those busy nights when you want to get a healthy dinner on the table quickly. This is far superior to any Chinese take-out shrimp dishes that we have ordered in the past and the price is right at only $13.60 for a 16 ounce dinner.

In addition to the wonderful seafood selections that we sampled, Anderson Seafoods has so much more to choose from including crab meat, fresh albacore tuna steaks, caviar, halibut, scallops, Alaskan King crab. You can shop for your favorites by visiting the Anderson Seafoods online retail store and get ready for one of the tastiest seafood meals you may ever eat!
