The Fish on Fridays series is a collaboration between Gloucester photographers Kathy Chapman and Marty Luster. Look for various aspects of Gloucester’s centuries-old fishing industry highlighted here on Fridays.
This week we have interviews with sushi chef Jordan Rubin from Rocky Neck’s Madfish Grille about his famous Glosta rolls, and his goal to visit the fish auctions in Japan.
We also have a video of Jordan placing tobiko on the Glosta rolls. Tobiko is the Japanese word for the flying fish roe. The raw roe is very nutritious, due to its high vitamin content, high protein content, and large ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids.
Still shots show their Black Thunder spicy tuna rolls and a Salmon Sushimi appetizer with charred ramp and ginger scallions. Delicious indeed!

Editor’s Note from Joey C-
The Sushi prepared at Madfish Grille is far and away the best sushi I’ve had anywhere.
I make that statement without any homerism involved. I’ve eaten sushi all over the place- California, Las Vegas, NYC, countless high end sushi joints. No joke- no exaggeration- the sushi at Madfish prepared by Jordan and his staff is the best I’ve ever eaten. The most creative, the most brilliantly prepared the most savory delicious sushi I’ve ever consumed. I can’t stress it enough.
My recommendation is to ask them to make you whatever they’d like. Jordan told me the term for this style of ordering but I forget the Japanese saying. Last time in we went with his recommendations and were blown away.
