Sanma and Weekend Specialties

Sanma (aka pacific saury) season has begun and we've been bringing in some pristine fish straight from Japan.  Sanma are typically found in the North Pacific off the coast of Japan to the Gulf of Alaska and are generally caught using the technique of attracting them by lights and scoop-netting them.  Sanma are small fish with dark, meaty, rich-flavored flesh that provides bone-free fillets.  They're best salted and grilled whole.

Blood Clams and Weekend Specialties 10.02.14

 

Those clams you see are Blood Clams and the red coloring is due to high levels of hemoglobin.  Make no mistake from their appearance, Blood Clams are deliciously crisp and are not as briny as littlenecks.  Fortunately for you, we managed to get our hands on a small amount of these succulent clams straight from the Cape for the weekend.  Raw bar keeps getting better.

Belon Oysters and Weekend Specialties 9.25.14

Maine Flat oyster (aka Belons) season has opened up this week and we should expect to see decent supply through the holidays.  A few quick notes about the Flats:  Maine Flats are a species (O. Edulis) originally from the Belon river estuary in France (hence the name Belons) that came to the eastern coast of the states in the last century.  Technically speaking, only oysters from the Belon river can be labeled “Belons,” similar to sparkling wine outside of the Champagne region.  Both “Flats” and “Belons” get thrown around in the U.S. though.  The oysters we source are wild and from a hard shell clam fishery in Harpswell, ME.  The Flat’s flavor profile is quite unique.  Instead of the wallop of brine most often associated with Gulf of Maine oysters (C. Virginica), the Flats open with metallic overtones, and finish with a mineral laced flourish.
