The Details:
This week we are delivering fresh Mediterranean Mussels (grown in Washington) and Manila Clams (grown in Washington) to our customers! These shellfish are being harvested and flown in from their respective ocean grown facilities - meaning we aren't dredging our oceans and destroying habitats to get them but rather plucking them from ropes or other structures that we place them on to grown in a sheltered inlet. 

Why Washington this week?

No local clams available and the harvest schedule for cove mussels currently doesn't align with our delivery schedule, but hopefully that will change soon! 

 Not only are they sustainable but they are also delicious, nutritious, and easy to cook!  

We love these tastey morsels in soups and chowders, on french fries, pastas, smothered in butter on the BBQ, or served on top of pizza (that's right - pizza actually can get more delicious!)

I know many of you eat fish for it's health benefits - shellfish can also offer many of the same benefits in addition to others!  

Mussels and Clams are teeming with vitamin B12, selenium, and manganese (offering over 100% of the RDA for each of them!) are they are particularly high in vitamin B12, selenium, iron, and manganese. That makes them excellent for nerve and blood cell health, treating or preventing iron-deficiency anemia, protecting against cellular damage, forming connective tissue, supporting cellular health, DNA synthesis, fat and carbohydrate metabolism, connective tissue and bone health, and blood sugar regulation (just to name a few!) 

Our partners at Seafood Watch consider these farmed shellfish a "Best Choice" because they actually help filter our ocean water and keep it healthy for all of its inhabitants.

The Details:

Sablefish is better known as Black Cod, but it is also called "butterfish" at the market to describe its unique and sumptuous flavor.  How’s that for confusing!?  Don’t let its’ many names deter you, Sablefish is a FreshCatch favorite for many reasons.  We love it for its high omega 3 oil content which gives it a velvety texture, and delicate buttery taste that is unlike any other fish. The fishery is in really great shape according to researchers, but we still go the extra mile to source sustainably.  The sablefish that we deliver are caught using either trap (similar to Dungeness), hook and line, bottomline, light-touch trawl (California Groundfish Collective), or a Scottish seine (California Groundfish Collective).  Our partner boats that fish for these delicious fish have to find some pretty deep water; they love hanging out on the seafloor as deep as 8,000 feet feeding on small fish, squid, and even jellyfish!  Once caught, the fish are handled with extreme care and delivered or picked up by us within hours of it being caught.  The flavor lends itself well to various cooking techniques and flavors but our favorite is still the classic Japanese preparation made famous at Nobu- miso marinated Black Cod (don't worry - we'll be including this in our recipes this week!)

Our partners at Seafood Watch consider these fish a "Best Choice" because their stocks are still healthy and being closely monitored.   

Seaweed Salsa and Pickles are back!!

Barnacle - Alaskan Kelp Salsa and Pickles

Seaweed salsa?! You will never want to switch back to regular salsa after trying this amazing, handcrafted, small batch salsa from Barnacle.  Our minds were blown after we dipped our first chip!

Barnacle was started by Matt and Lia - they grew up in Southeast Alaska - and for years they have been making salsa and pickles from fresh Alaskan Bull Kelp for their friends and families. 

In their own words:

"We realized we were making something special, a taste of home that we should share with more than our friends and family. Bringing the wild flavors of Southeast Alaska from our kitchen into yours. But, more than that, we want to work toward strengthening Alaska’s food system by producing tasty and nutritious products from abundant local resources. In remote and rural Southeast Alaska, we rely on our community and we want our work to help support that community. To ensure Barnacle benefits our community we will keep our business firmly rooted in here, in Southeast Alaska. 

Our first goal is to make delicious food, but we’re also conscious about using abundant and sustainable local food sources like wild kelp. By preserving kelp in the form of salsas and pickles, we are bringing this renewable resource to your kitchen year round. Thank you for your support!"

We are proud to support a small, sustainable, Alaskan company - we kickstarted our venture on a trip to Kodiak, AK - and truly believe in quality and integrity of the people there and products that they produce. 

Each is $10.95 - and weighs 10 oz
