7.5 oz Sockeye Salmon Cans

June 7, 2020 in Products, Seasonal Wild Catch

Packed in Petersburg, AK

Straight from Southeast Alaska, these 7.5 oz pressure cooked cans of sockeye wild salmon are the apex of sustainable seafood. The vicinity of the Wrangell Narrows, a narrow channel in the Alexander Archipelago of Southeast Alaska, doesn’t suffer from the pitfalls of overdevelopment. Big ships just won’t fit! This lack of large scale fisheries paves the way for small scale, artisanal harvesters to thrive on the island community of Petersburg. We also want to mention that each can contains 800 mg of omega 3 fatty acids which contain numerous health benefits. In fact, some research shows strong evidence that the omega-3s EPA and DHA can boost heart health and reduce triglycerides.

There are no additives or water in these cans – only sea salt, sockeye and sustainable sumptuous flavor. Don’t take our word for it though, try a can (or two) today! They are 5 dollars a can or you can purchase and entire case of 6 cans for 25 dollars. Supplies are limited!

Here is an awesome recipe for these cans of delicious salmon! Enjoy!

The King is Back

December 15, 2019 in Products, Seasonal Wild Catch

The best ingredients require only the simplest recipes

King Salmon $33/lb

Harvested in May 2020 from the waters of Ketchikan 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 from September 13-May 31 and year round for 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.

Spot Prawns $25/lb [21-25 ct] SOLD OUT thru October 15, 2020

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 Prawn Boil: Approximately 1/2 cup of liquid for every 1/4 lb prawns.

For 2 lb recipe

Ingredients:

2 lbs Spot Prawns  – thawed, unpeeled or peeled with shells reserved*

1 cups water – may use 2 cups white wine or half wine and half water

1 cups white wine or diluted lemon juice [juice of 2 lemons plus water], 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 crushed peppercorns [dried or brined]

1 Tbs salt – optional

1 sprig rosemary

1/4 bunch of any fresh or wilting green herbs

1 Tbs lemon zest or peel – no pith

1 stick of butter

any vegetables beside beets [avoid staining 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 unpeeled prawns to the pot, cover and cook until done.  Approximately 7-10 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 serve with fresh crusty baguette. Prawns will require peeling wile eating. This recipe does not use cocktail sauce.  If you like cocktail sauce omit butter and bread from the recipe and serve the prawns chilled and strained. Reserve liquid frozen for use as a soup base or stock for risotto. This recipe may be made up to 1 day in advance.

*For a more formal version of this recipe see below.

Prawns can be peeled up to 24 hours before cooking.  Prawn shells are optional in this recipe and can be boiled to make the cooking stock used to serve with shelled prawns. To make a stock from prawn shells repeat the recipe above except adding only prawn shells to the stock and allow stock to cool completely before straining the stock to remove all of the ingredients except its liquid. Then add the butter to the cooled strained stock and reheat it the stock on medium heat. Once the butter is completely melted add the shelled prawns.  Cook until peeled prawns are curled and opaque [approx 8-10 minutes].  Serve in bowls with crusty baguette. This recipe does not use cocktail sauce.  If you like cocktail sauce omit butter and bread from the recipe and serve the prawns chilled and strained. Reserve liquid frozen for use as a soup base or stock for risotto.

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