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.

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.

The King is Back

The best ingredients require only the simplest recipes

King Salmon $27/lb

Harvested in July 2015 from the waters of Petersburg and surrounds in Southeast Alaska, Otolith’s King Salmon is as delicious as its name suggests.  Wild Alaskan King salmon is available from Otolith at Headhouse Farm Market and Home Delivery.

Because of its savory flavor and moist texture, King salmon is a perfect ingredient to compliment fall’s leafy greens and savory root vegetables.
Serving Suggestions:
  • Simple dressed salad greens and sauteed thicker seasonal greens compliment this rich and savory fish abundant with omega-3 fatty acids.  It is best to roast, grill or sear king salmon at 400 degrees.  Allow 10 minutes per inch of thickness to cook king salmon.  Once the king salmon is cooked, rest the salmon for 2-3 minutes before serving.  Serving suggestion: drizzle pomegranate syrup lightly over the king salmon or greens.
  • Cleaned, peeled and cut to 1 inch cubes, root vegetables coated lightly with oil will take approximately 45 minutes to roast in a 400 degree oven.  While vegetables are roasting, there is time to thaw the season’s best king salmon and wash and sautee any leafy greens with garlic and olive oil.  Swiss chard is done when the stalks are tender and easy to chew, but some greens such as collard require the addition of a little water from time to time to prevent scorching while cooking to a tender doneness in a stove-top deep dish skillet.  The portions of thawed king salmon can be added directly to the roasting root vegetables after the vegetables have been cooking at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.  Recommended root vegetables include butternut squash, turnips, beets, or potatoes with an optional  quartered small onion or fennel bulb for contrast and additional flavor.
