Pretty smug that I can offer black cod! This fish is so good it's hard to find in the US because Japan takes it all. Luckily for you, "I know a guy". Southeast Alaska, product is skin-on, bone-in, chemical-free, and frozen once. Each piece is 6-8oz.
Caught in Oregon and Washington waters by Tre-Fin - three captains of the F/V Oppor-tuna-ty (actual name) painstakingly bring you pole-and-line caught, then bled and slurry iced literally one minute of landing on board. Landed to Ilwaco within 24 hrs then HAND-FILLETED into the freezer. This is their life every day. Virtually zero bycatch, small albacore, purposefully chosen in order to minimize mercury accumulation. Worried about the potential impact on the stock health of cherry-picking small fish? Don't be...albacore grow fast and make babies young - they can handle it.
Each 6oz pack has (2-3) 2-3oz nuggets. Feeds 1-2 people.
Sometimes fisheries are lacking in fish. This healthy bountiful fishery is lacking in demand. Deckhand's Daughter Smoked Herring is essentially a really decent Alaska fleet manager, Warner Lew, who is singlehandedly providing life support for the three remaining herring fishermen in Togiak, AK. Trying to salvage a viable living in this kind of fishery is kind of like when you know you've lost at Monopoly but it takes a while to actually go bankrupt. The solution? EAT IT! Herring is ... strong. There's no beating around it. But small pelagics are where it's at for big omegas and small bioaccumulation. Renee Erickson whips this smoked herring product with butter until smooth and serves with crostinis at her restaurant Walrus & the Carpenter (see Warner pictured below). Try also mixing into a cream cheese with scallions for a smoky fishy cracker spread. Place chunks from the can into an ungreased hot cast iron to crisp up the outsides and round out that hot grease flavor. Eat mixed with cous cous or quinoa and salad, cut with a squeeze of lemon and olive oil. For the brave of heart, and as your fishy tolerance grows, eat it right out of the can with crusty sourdough.
Longlined under the strictest of quota in southeast Alaska, this halibut is coming straight from the fishermen! Product is skinless, boneless, chemical-free, and frozen once. Each piece is a whopping shareable 10-12oz portion.
Ingredients: black cod, sea salt, brown sugar, natural wood smoke. Tiny slices of luscious. Makes everything better. The new bacon. Caught and smoked in BC, and brought down to Bellingham by Vital Choice, these 4oz packs come with several thin slices.
