All Fresh Seafood (AFS) has been providing customers in New York and New Jersey with a wide selection of seafood since 1998. This company began with a mission to provide customers with a way to buy seafood online. They pride themselves on their unique ability to find difficult to locate seafood items. Their reputation for providing only the highest quality seafood is confirmed by the fact that top-rated chefs and 5-star restaurants use this seafood to create their cuisine.
At this time, there are no All Fresh Seafood Coupons or coupon codes available. When All Fresh Seafood coupons or coupon codes do become available, I will be happy to post them for you.
Along with seafood, they also sell appetizers, prepared foods, magic crumbs and sauces. Customers looking for the finest seafood will find this company has a great deal to offer. They have 5 categories of seafood from which customers may choose.
A fresh whole fish selection includes trout, branzini, red snapper, striped bass and Portuguese sardines.
Customers can choose from fillets and steaks like salmon or tuna, which are perfect for broiling, baking, grilling and more. A flavor-rich smoked fish selection includes whitefish and kippered salmon salad, as well as a variety of smoked salmons.
Shellfish such as shrimp, lobster, and much more is another delicious seafood that chef's can utilize in appetizers or main courses. Finally, the caviar category gives both at home and restaurant chefs the choice of many different types of caviar to add an air of sophistication to cuisine. There are both domestic and Iranian caviars available.
Customers who buy these appetizers will find they are great as a meal in themselves, a compliment to a meal, or a way to indulge guests at a party or before a meal. These appetizers are made from fresh seafood and arrive fully cooked. There is quite a selection of nearly 20 appetizers. A small sampling includes crab cakes, lobster ravioli, baked clams, coconut shrimp, and several types of smoked fish.
Another option for dinner can be found among the prepared food section. These foods are prepared fresh and never frozen. However, like the appetizer, they arrive fully cooked so customers must simply heat and enjoy eating them. Their prepared seafood selection is created specifically to take the work out of meal planning for those who are too busy to grocery shop or cook for dinner. Customers can heat their food in either the oven or microwave.
Customers can add something extra to their seafood with Magic Crumbs. However, these panko crumbs are not only for fish, but customers can add them to beef, pork, chicken and more. This company's very own Corporate Chef has developed the recipes that make these particular panko crumbs both tasty and unique. Customers can choose from Italian, Cajun, black peppercorn, pommerey mustard and toasted coconut Magic Crumbs. They are also available for wholesale and in a gift set.
Another creation of their Corporate Chef is their specialty seafood sauces. Sauces are prepared to be homemade and fresh. The selection of sauces includes tartar, ginger lime, mustard, non-fat yogurt dill and cocktail sauces. Their cocktail sauce has the ingredients ketchup, horseradish and lemon juice that give it a classic taste. All of these sauces are meant to accompany their fresh seafood.
For customers wanting to buy their seafood in bulk the option of buying wholesale is available. Customers will have every reassurance that the wholesale seafood shipped to them from this company is of the highest quality, and is guaranteed to arrive fresh. They have quality control standards in place to make certain they meet this high standard of excellence.

A "thumbs up" means I found enough value in the product to say I would order it again, and a "thumbs down" could mean it was a good product, but I would not buy it again at the price I paid for it. This is how I believe I can show you the best value for your money.

Chef Piquanti's All Fresh Seafood Review
Chilean Sea Bass, one pound
U12 Diver Scallops Sushi Quality,
Lump Crab Meat, one pound
Chilean sea bass is one of my most favorite fish in the world. It used to be a popular menu item in the 90s, but today it rarely appears on a menu or at your local fish market. If it does appear at your fish market, it's likely to be very expensive and not likely to be very fresh. Averaging over $30 a pound, it is not normally a fast mover.
The Chilean Sea Bass I bought from All Fresh Seafood was $34 a pound and well worth it. It arrived perfectly fresh without any hint of order at all. I sliced it in half and made two tremendous stakes with it. While the price per pound may seem expensive, that is about the standard rate for a fish that is very hard to find. In my opinion, that not only qualifies it as being gourmet, it also qualifies it as a good value.
I also purchased 1 pound of U12 dry-packed diver scallops of sushi quality. Unfortunately, I didn't see any difference in the scallops from any scallops you could buy at any supermarket.
My Chilean Sea Bass, Pan Seared, and Plated
My U12 Diver Scallops Served as an Appetizer
Lump Crab Meat Crab Cakes
They were not particularly large the way one would expect that U12 diver scallop to be, nor were they cleaned that well. My order came with a few scallops that still had the side-muscle on them. Sushi-quality scallops at this price tend to be pearly-white in color. About half my order came this way. One of my scallops came shredded which is a sign of mishandling.
These scallops cost $2.33 each, which is fine for a high-quality gourmet product, but if the quality is less than perfect, it directly effects the value.
By definition, U12 refers to the size of the scallop, and that there will be 12 or less scallops in a pound. My order came with exactly 12 scallops which I paid $27.98 a pound for.
In my opinion, I did not feel they were anything special that you can't get at your local super market, and for about half the price.
My order also included a pound of fresh lump crab meat for $24.99 a pound. I would estimate that is about the price you'd expect to pay for it at the store, and the quality and freshness were about the same.
I made "scalloped-sized crab cakes and cooked them just like you would sear a scallop.
So in conclusion I was very happy with the Chilean sea bass, but I felt the scallops and lump crab meat were of of equal quality which can be purchased locally.
I found these Scallops from CostCo to be a better quality and value. Click to enlarge.
