Good morning Chefs and Buyers,
Our buyers assembled an eclectic collection of midweek specials to get your culinary juices flowing. So take a minute to ponder the possibilities of the following offerings:
- Blowfish; the tails of these can be served as a sort of "chicken wing of the sea". Each fish will yield a miniature monkfish-like tail that weighs between 3-5 ounces.
- Razor clams; from Rhode Island the sweet and succulent meat of the razor clam is great gently marinated in citrus and served raw or as a elegant addition to paella and pastas.
- Boston Mackerel; one of our favorite little fish, low on the food chain but full of flavor, suitable as a crudo or lightly grilled at this price you cannot go wrong.
- Sturgeon; early settlers in this area ate local sturgeon to the point of near extinction, it is now a protected species. We have sourced ours from the well managed Columbia River. Sturgeon produces a rich well marbled fillet, no wonder New Yorkers once called it "Albany Beef".
- Stone Crab Claws; already cooked on the boats, nothing could be easier than these succulent crustaceans served with a mustard sauce compliment or drawn butter.
- Discovery Bay Oyster; often affectionately referred to as "disco bay" these deep water west coast oysters are grown suspended where they pick up a unique iron tinge reminiscent of belons while still keeping the melon overtones and mild brininess so characteristic of most west coast oysters.
