Razor Clams and Weekend Specialties 7.17.14

While they’re typically available year round, razor clams hit their stride in the summer months and this weekend is no exception.  Razor clams make their homes in the extreme end of the intertidal zone, and they can only be harvested during low tides that occur during day light.  Given the longer days in summer, a higher amount of low tides occur during daylight hours making razors more accessible.  With that said, harvesting a razor clam from exposed sand is no easy feat!  They’re well worth it though and they stand up to a variety of cooking methods.  We’re partial to quick and simple preparations that highlight their natural taste such as grilled or pan-seared razors with a little olive oil, garlic or lemon, but we’ll let you decide.

And last but not least..for those of you who missed it, there are still tickets left to the first ever “LobsterStock” (named after its close geographical location to Woodstock, NY) clambake on the historic Denniston Hill Bridge on Saturday August 9th.  For more information or to buy tickets, please visit the event page on Brown Paper Tickets (http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/750909 )

Grilled Sockeye, LobsterStock 2014 and Weekend Specialties 7.10.14

We know Sockeye always gets mentioned a lot in the summertime, and there’s good reason.  We just received some gorgeous Sockeye flown in from the Aleutian Islands of Alaska.  These fish have great deep red color, impeccable flesh and a nice fat content.  In honor of summer’s bounty, Chef Dave Seigal has shared a great grilled Sockeye and parsley-tarragon emulsion recipe.  Check it out here

We’ve also got some excellent grill fish this weekend, including some pristine Gulf of Mexico Wahoo.

And last but not least..for those of you who missed it, there are still tickets left to the first ever “LobsterStock” (named after its close geographical location to Woodstock, NY) clambake on the historic Denniston Hill Bridge on Saturday August 9th.  For more information or to buy tickets, please visit the event page on Brown Paper Tickets
