Your SHRIMPNOTE for 10-13 & 14-2017
Greetings!

 The temperature around here has been on the high side recently and I'm ready for it to drop to normal as we move closer to Thanksgiving Day. Then we get to return to our best friends' home in Sneads Ferry for some grape-stomping and gourmet meals galore, an event we've been doing since 1995. That menu I will share with you as the event gets closer.

In the meantime, our focus is obtaining more radically fresh seafood delivered to a sales site near you so you can enjoy our products. That's what we do and that's what we're good at doing.

We are located at Friday noon: 2301 Sandy Ridge Rd, (Fri,)Budding Artichoke and Saturday, 9 AM at 2913 Sandy Ridge Rd, (Sat.) Colfax, NC 27235 Cheerwine. (across from the Farmer's Market)

Many Blessings to you and yours,
Landon

Best Dang Crab Cake you ever did eat
Salmon
 Our salmon is cut from whole fish into huge fillets which are the sides of the fish without bones. We cut these sides into collars, center cut strips, wide cuts, and tails. 
Collars are the fattiest of all the cuts and are best for sushi mi and sushi. Tails are the least fatty and are best for medium, medium well, and well-done salmon. Strips and wide cuts are best for grilling, broiling and sauteing.
Please specify which cuts you prefer.
THIS WEEK'S QUOTATION

SHELLFISH
One more week before NC in-shell oysters are available.
Contrary to most of our training over many years here in NC, live shell oysters are not available during the months with "R"'s in them because the "guvment" has interceded and currently allows harvesting from October 15 each year until the end of March subject to where the beds are located. The pricing for this year hasn't been established yet and we won't know until opening day so stay posted.

Our in-shell oysters were always sold in bushels, half-bushels, and pecks until we learned that some of the oyster men have different notions about how much volume constitutes a bushel so we started requiring our dealers to pack ours in 60# bushels, 30# half-bushels and 15# pecks. This offers us and you greater consistency in the bags we sell.

We can also offer to have your preordered oysters washed at the coast for a $5.00/Bushel fee, but we won't be washing them if you fail to preorder them washed. I also have to warn you that the life of a washed oyster is numbered in days and not the weeks that an unwashed muddy oyster will last under refrigeration. If your plans are to buy oysters to roast on the Thursday following your pick up from us the week before, you will experience several dried-out oysters because they have not had the benefits of the mud protecting them. Washing your oysters is your call, but you must weigh the benefits. Thanks.
