Dungeness Crab

Northwest holiday gatherings are extra special with a pile of meat-filled Dungeness crab, lots of butter and lemon, and a big green salad.  They are sweet and delicate in flavor and easy to share with a big group or all by yourself!  We are just getting Dungeness from San Francisco and the Oregon crab should be in the market mid-December.  They had a late molt and have been slow to fatten up, but we expect them to be plump and ready for the holidays.  Did you know that Dungeness crabs molt about 12 times by the age of two, and then once a year through the age of six?  They shed their shell and a larger one is formed in its place. 

We suggest you call the market and pre-order for your holiday meal.

Salmon

 

 

We has a good supply of FAS Chinook and Silver from Alaska.  The color and flavor is very good. 

 

More about the various types of salmon and recipes to try.

Salmon cooked on the grill will never disappoint.  Delicious and nutritious - filled with omega-3's!

Sole, Cod, and Rockfish

Petrale Sole should continue to show up on a regular basis for the short-term future. The catch has been pretty consistent to date. This will potentially be affected if weather systems keep the boats off the water.

Also, high quality, fileted-by-hand, hook and line Rockfish, Ling Cod, and Black Cod are plentiful. The texture and appearance of trolling, hook and line caught fish is superior to trawl (net) caught.  The quality is firmer and the flavor tends to be slightly sweeter and milder.
