Sevy’s Seafood Adventure: Wolfish Handpicked In Boston Arrives In Dallas

Greetings from American Airlines flight number 1237. I’m headed back to Dallas from Boston, where I left the Severson family to start their family vacation. I thought you might enjoy this story from our adventure in Beantown (waydahgoRangers).

Yesterday, we visited the Steve Connolly Seafood Plant in Boston with Amy and Jim “Sevy” Severson and their two kids. We trailed Sevy as he picked out his order, which includes a nice wolfish that will be served as a special tonight at Sevy’s Grill. Then Connolly’s corporate chef, Carlos Santos, took us into the kitchen and showed Sevy some simple ways to prepare wolfish, cod cheeks, swordfish, scallops, Bay of Fundy salmon, and striped bass. Then we packed the ugly but tasty wolfish in ice and walked it out to the loading dock where it was put in a refrigerated truck headed for the airport.

We grabbed some Blue Point oysters and a few beers and went to a park by Logan airport where we watched the AA jet carrying Sevy’s precious cargo take off and fly over our heads at 3:00 p.m. I am rushing home right now, so that I can make it to Sevy’s tonight where I will dine on said wolfish. Don’t tell Michael “Buzzy” Zeve, Sevy’s chef and partner, about my plan. Tomorrow morning I’ll post a review and pictures.

Interesting note:  While we were in the packing room, I spied orders going to Nick & Sam’s, Neighborhood Services, The Adolphus, Neiman’s, Fearing’s, Lakewood Country Club, Stephan Pyles, and Old Hickory Steakhouse and Ama Lur at the Gaylord Texan.

  1. “Handpicked?” As opposed to….. machine picked? There’s not much automation in the fresh fish industry after you are off the boat.
