Otolith appreciates the Mariposa Coop for their diverse selection of highest quality food available. More than occasionally at Otolith we need a snack bar to keep us nourished on a busy day. Not all snack bars are created equal. Too much sugar is not our thing. And too much oats and puffed rice are just another way filling our stomach without nourishing our mind and body. The bars we like are available at Mariposa. It is a terrific market for buying the most healthful convenient snack bars made from responsible ingredients that taste delicious. Mariposa also sells a large variety of ethnic and local nutritious ingredients to satisfy any hungry dinner appetite.
Imagine our surprise when Otolith Sustainable Seafood started to distribute our wild additive free sushi-grade fish products at Mariposa Market Coop in West Philly and we saw salted cod for sale at Mariposa too! This is a very big deal Philadelphia. It might not be Otolith’s cod, and Otolith, does have many great fish now available at Mariposa however, it is an adventure to find your own recipe for bacalao [salt cod] or any fish that matches your taste and give it a whirl. All romesco ingredients can be purchased at Mariposa too! The Salvador Dali exhibit may be over but it is never too late to look his work up online and create an inspired authentic meal at home in West Philly.
Now you can buy Otolith’s Coho and Sockeye Salmon, Halibut, Flounder, Rockfish and Sablefish at Mariposa. Otolith Sustainable Seafood has online recipes for all of our wild seafood. Isn’t it nice to have access to so many excellent healthful ingredients. We think it is too!
