Difficult to source and harder still to harvest, Spot Prawns are a uniquely scrumptious wild shellfish full of sweet flavor combined with rich umami savoriness and a beautiful white texture that is firm to the bite without being chewy.

Celebrate the holidays with delicious 2017 Spot Prawns

2 lb packs $50 each

Festive recipe using peeled and boiled prawns provide an exciting and talked about delicacy of the ocean that remains wildly abundant in in Southeast Alaska.  Harvested using pot trap gear, spot prawns are managed for generations of sustainable seafood resource  access.

Spot Prawns are sold as tails only and are easy to peel once cooked while not terribly difficult to peel raw.  Owning to their characteristics of freshness and Otolith’s commitment to superior quality, spot prawns shells are as attached to their prawns’ bodies as much as they day they were harvested.  Thawing shellfish under refrigeration at least a few up to 7 days before cooking will make shells easier to remove and peel.  The hard shells of a large prawn are easy to grasp and the firm texture of the prawns simplifies the task while it is pinched from its shell.   No deveining required. Approximate time to peel 20 large prawns:  6-7 minutes

Seasoned Prawns Boil: Approximately 1 cup of liquid for every 6 prawns.

For 2 lb recipe

Ingredients:

2 lbs Spot Prawns  – thawed and peeled with shells reserved

4 cups water

2-3 cups white wine or lemon juice, pilsner beer, or vegetable stock

1 small onion quartered

3 celery stalks quartered into shorter lengths

1 carrot quartered lengthwise

1 garlic clove smashed

1 Tbs peppercorns

1 Tbs salt – optional

1 sprig rosemary

1/4 bunch of any fresh or old green herbs

1 Tbs lemon zest or peel – no pith

and old vegetables beside beets [do not stain the prawns] can go into the pot at your discretion

In a large sauce pot, combine all ingredients except prawns, cover and bring to a boil.  Add prawn shells to the pot and stir.  Add prawns to the pot, cover and cook until done.  Approximately 10-15 minutes.  Give the prawns a stir to make sure all tails are curled slightly, fully cooked and opaque throughout.  Remove from the heat.  Allow to cool slightly and refrigerate in a container until ready to serve, at least one hour a head.

Prawns can be peeled up to 6 hours before cooking.  Prawn shells are optional in this recipe and can be frozen raw and boiled at another time to make stock for rice or soup. To make a stock from prawn shells repeat the recipe above except omitting the prawns and allow stock to cool completely before straining the stock to remove all of the ingredients except its liquid.

Best Homemade cocktail sauce: 4 parts ketchup, 1 part horseradish, 1/2 part fresh lemon juice, 1/8 part Worcestershire sauce or chopped anchovies. Serve chilled. May be made up to 1 day ahead.

Wild Alaskan Fish at Mariposa Coop Market

October 16, 2012 in Seafood For Thought

Now selling Otolith's Sustainable Seafood

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 MariposaOtolith 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!
