Maine Belon Oyster Season has Started and Weekend Specialties 9.29.16 September 29 2016 Posted in

Maine Flat oyster (aka Belons) season has opened 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.

Fresh Anchovies and Weekend Specialties 9.22/16 September 21 2016 Posted in

There is so much more to the anchovy than just the canned variety.  We happen to think a true fresh anchovy, while hard to find in the U.S., will turn anyone who tries them into a believer.  Fresh anchovies have a soft, smooth texture; and rich, distinctive, lightly oily flavor with edible bones, perfect for eating whole.

Sanma and Weekend Specialties 9.8.16 September 07 2016 Posted in

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.

Hokkaido Uni and Weekend Specialties 8.11.16 August 11 2016 Posted in

 

California sea urchin is not in peak season, but the good news is we have some great uni trays from Hokkaido, Japan, flown in on Tuesday and Thursdays.  While the lobes are sometimes smaller than Santa Barbara uni, they’re just as tasty, if not better. Hokkaido uni are prized for because of the kombu or kelp they feed on, and the clean water where they live.   These uni trays come in a small 30g tray, perfect for a quick snack.

Wreckfish and Weekend Specialties 7.28.16 July 27 2016 Posted in

We have some great looking Wreckfish coming in this week.  Although Wreckfish are found all along the East Coast, most commercial landings are from the Charleston Bump, a deep-water bank located 80 to 100 miles off the cost of South Carolina.  Wreckfish enjoy deep-water habitats around sheltered structures and are caught using heavy-duty hydraulic reels with 1/8 inch cables.  The fishery is well managed to ensure long term sustainability.  While they can be tough to catch, the result is well worth the effort.  Wreck fish have a large flake, sweat flavor and nice skin that crisps well.

Tuna Belly and Weekend Specialties 7.7.16 July 06 2016 Posted in

It’s hot outside.   We all have our techniques for beating the heat, but eating refreshing cold meals is certainly one of the keys.  At the Lobster Place we’re all about eating ceviche, poke and raw fish to keep things manageable and this week we have some excellent yellowfin tuna belly, flown direct from Hawaii, to help things out in that department.  Tuna belly has a high fattiness that produces a moderate, rich and buttery flavor, perfect raw to keep things cool.

While Razor Clams are more or less a staple in the retail store, they’re always worthy of a shout out in the summer time.  More abundant because summer low tides happen more often in daylight, these strong flavored razors are also a perfect, simple summer time protein to pull off.  Simply cook in a skillet with white wine, chiles and garlic and you’ll be in Barcelona in no time.

Nice shot of wahoo in for the weekend so fire up those grills!  This week’s wahoo hails from Panama City, Florida and was caught using hook and line.  Wahoo has a fatty flavor similar to albacore, but is sweeter with a large-flaked texture.  They call it “ono” in Hawaii, which means “good to eat.”

Mahimahi and Weekend Specialties 6.9.16 June 08 2016 Posted in

On the east coast, summer seafood options get a much needed boost as migratory fish such as tuna, sword and mahimahi make their way up the gulf stream to points up north to take advantage of the warmer water and feeding that comes along with it.  While we are of the humble opinion that U.S. Atlantic fish stocks provide some of the best eating fish around, it’s always nice to see some new faces in the lineup.  As temps start to warm up, we’ve started to see some excellent hook and line mahimahi coming out of the south and mid-Atlantic.  This week’s mahimahi hails from South Carolina and has a moderate flavor with lean and fairly firm, large moist flakes.  Mahimahi is great just about any way you can think to cook it and it tastes even better when it’s caught this close.

Pacific Rock Crab and Weekend Specialties 6.2.16 June 01 2016 Posted in

Good news for summer raw bars!  While Stone Crab season is over, Pacific Rock Crab in California is very much in season.  Rock crab are quite similar to Stone Crabs and have a very delicate, sweet flavor.  We’ve been seeing some great quality out of Santa Barbara and should have them on a consistent basis throughout the summer.  Best news is that they’re about half the price of Stone Crab claws!

Tripletail and weekend specialties 5.19.16 May 18 2016 Posted in

We have some really nice tripletail coming in from Panama for the weekend.  Tripletail is called tripletail, because, well…. it has three tails.  They’re notoriously difficult to catch, but their super sweet meat is well worth the trouble.  Most anglers will tell you they’ll gladly toss the rest of their catch to get their hands on a tripletail.  Happy eating!

Blowfish Tails and Mother's Day Specialties 5.5.16 May 04 2016 Posted in

First Blowfish tails of the year are in this weekend, marking another unofficial start to summer. Rest assured, we’re not talking about the poisonous Fugu. These blowfish tails come from U.S blowfish (or Sea Squab) and are perfectly harmless. They’re prized for their fillets, which resemble tiny chicken drumsticks, with a single bone running between two morsels of flesh. The meat is lean and white, and meaty rather than flaky.

Mother’s day is this weekend and we have plenty of great options for the special day so come on by and make mom proud by showing off your cooking skills!

Cod Cheeks, Iceland
