It's Time To Get Crabby!
Crab Medley
It only happens once in a blue moon, but we get questions about it almost every week. I am speaking of course about our famous 5 pound crab piece special where you get a mix of king, snow, and dungeness crab all for under 50 dollars! It's the perfect time to break out the clarified butter, and steam or boil up some delicious crab legs at a price you just can't beat.
We know what you're asking though, what are crab pieces exactly? Crab pieces are high quality premium crab, but in packaging they are basically a by-product of sorts. If a leg gets packed by suppliers and it happens to split or break at any point it is removed and becomes a "crab piece". Same crab, just not as aesthetically pleasing as a full leg and quite a bit less expensive! Every once in a while we are able to work with our suppliers to procure a good enough amount to do a customer appreciation sale of sorts with them and if you are reading this newsletter you are in luck, because today is the day!
We've put together and packed these in 5 pound bags and you will get a mix of king crab legs and snow crab clusters, anything from the knuckle area to the lower halves of the legs. We pack these at random, so some may have a bit more king crab, others may be a bit more snow or dungeness crab but all of will be delicious. Come by while supplies last!

Crispy Cod Burger
With Shoestring Fries
Fish burgers
  • 4 small fillets of Cod weighing 12 ounces altogether
  • 3 ounces plain (all purpose) flour
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs 
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • 1.2 tsp (.2 ounces) paprika
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • toasted brioche rolls
  • 8 lettuce leaves
  • 3 medium sized potatoes
  • Vegetable oil for deep-frying
  • Salt
Lemon garlic mayo:

  • 4 ounces of good quality mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1 small clove of minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp of chopped chives

  • Preheat oven to 190C/375F.
  • Make the lemon garlic mayo by mixing all of the mayo ingredients together.
  • Half fill a deep, heavy-based pan with vegetable oil and heat – in preparation for cooking the skinny fries. Use a mandoline or food chopper to ‘julienne’ the potatoes (no need to peel). Place the julienne potatoes on some kitchen roll and pat to remove excess water
  • Put the flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs on 3 large plates. Mix the salt and pepper into the flour. Mix the paprika into the breadcrumbs. Dip each piece of fish in turn into the flour, egg and finally the breadcrumbs, shaking off any excess as you go. Heat the oil in the frying pan, then fry the fish burgers on a medium heat for about 3 mins on each side, until golden and crisp (Note 1). Finish them off in the oven for about 5 minutes
  • Whilst the fish burgers are finishing off in the oven, deep fry the skinny fries for 1 1/2-2 minutes until golden brown (check the oil is hot enough first by dropping a couple of fries in. If they sizzle and rise straight to the top it’s hot enough). Be careful when placing the skinny fries in the oil as the oil may boil over. You may need to cook the fries in a couple of batches to prevent this. Drain the fries and season with salt. If you do need to cook more than one batch, I’ve found it best to drain your first batch and leave them in a bowl lined with kitchen roll. Then throw them back in the hot oil for 20 seconds before serving. Trying to keep the fries warm in the oven can either overcook and burn them, or make them go a bit soft.
  • Place the bottom half of the each roll onto a plate, top with lettuce, add the fish burger and finish with some lemon garlic mayo before topping with the other half of the bun. Serve with the skinny fries.

Baked Salmon In Foil
  •  2 pound side of salmon — boneless (skin on or off, depending upon your preference), wild caught if possible
  •  5 sprigs fresh rosemary — or fresh herbs of your choice; do not use dried herbs
  •  2 small lemons — divided, plus extra for serving as desired
  •  2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  •  1 teaspoon kosher salt
  •  1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  •  4 cloves garlic — peeled and roughly chopped
  •  Additional chopped fresh herbs— such as basil, thyme, parsley, dill, or green onion (optional)

  1. Remove the salmon from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking dish or rimmed baking sheet with a large piece of aluminum foil.
  2. Lightly coat the foil with baking spay, then arrange 2 sprigs of the rosemary down the middle. Cut one of the lemons into thin slices and arrange half the slices down the middle with the rosemary. Place the salmon on top.
  3. Drizzle the salmon with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Rub to coat, then scatter the garlic cloves over the top. Lay the remaining rosemary and lemon slices on top of the salmon. Juice the second lemon, then pour the juice over the top.
  4. Fold the sides of the aluminum foil up and over the top of the salmon until it is completely enclosed. If your piece of foil is not large enough, place a second piece on top and fold the edges under so that it forms a sealed packet. Leave a little room inside the foil for air to circulate.
  5. Bake the salmon for 15-20 minutes, until the salmon is almost completely cooked through at the thickest part. The cooking time will vary based on the thickness of your salmon. If your side is thinner (around 1-inch thick) check several minutes early to ensure your salmon does not overcook. If your piece is very thick (1 1/2 inches or more), it may need longer.
  6. Remove the salmon from the oven and carefully open the foil so that the top of the fish is completely uncovered (be careful of hot steam). Change the oven setting to broil, then return the fish to the oven and broil for 3 minutes, until the top of the salmon and the garlic are slightly golden and the fish is cooked through. Watch the salmon closely as it broils to make sure it doesn’t overcook and the garlic does not burn. Remove the salmon from the oven. If it still appears a bit underdone, you can wrap the foil back over the top and let it rest for a few minutes. Do not let it sit too long—salmon can progress from "not done" to "over done" very quickly. As soon as it flakes easily with a fork, it's ready.
  7. To serve, cut the salmon into portions. Sprinkle with additional fresh herbs or top with an extra squeeze of lemon as desired.
