OCEAN2TABLE DELIVERIES: 4/1 & 4/2

Our fishing friends in Moss Landing have landed locally caught Sablefish, also known as Blackcod. Sablefish is also commonly known as butterfish due to its soft texture, delicate flakes and rich, buttery taste. These characteristics can be contributed to its high level of healthy fatty acids.


In addition, we will have Miyagi & Golden Nugget Oysters from Tomales Bay Oyster Company.

Oysters, especially when harvested locally, like these Miyagi's and Golden Nuggets from Tomales Bay, are a great choice. Flavorful salt-briney goodness, beneficial minerals, packed with vitamin D, a smart choice for nourishing your body and soul.

Also, they're a great choice due to their overall low environmental impacts. They're raised within Tomales Bay in oyster bags within their natural habitat and filter feed on the algae & plankton in Tomales Bay, which actually cleanse the water and improve the health of the ecosystem as a whole.


This week we will have two bread options from Manresa Bread!

We will have Sourdough Baguettes & the Whole Wheat Loaves


Garden Variety has made Ricotta cheese this week. Made with whole sheep milk, this ricotta is sweet and milky


Lastly, our farming friends are busy working in the fields harvesting the beginning of the spring time crops! We have a great variety this week in both of our boxes & add on options

Available Fish Species


Species: Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

Catch Date: 03/24/2020

Aquaculture Farm: McFarland Springs

Location: Susanville, CA

Farming Method: 100% Vegetarian Red Algea Feed, Spring Fed Raceway

Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice

Share Size: 1.0 lb

Rainbow Trout are a species of salmonid native to the West Coast of North America. Commonly referred to as Steelhead, Rainbow Trout are anadromous, meaning they are capable of moving back and forth from the river to the ocean then back again to the river to spawn (sometimes several times throughout their lives). They have a delicate texture, medium flake and a flavor similar to wild salmon.

McFarland Springs is leading the aquaculture industry in sustainability by utilizing 100% pure vegetarian feed made with red algae. They have eliminated antibiotics and all other medicines from their diet as well. Most farmed fish (eg. Salmon and Prawns) have a bad rap for good reasons, they are fed a diet that contains large amounts of antibiotics as well as fishmeal which is produced from wild fish stocks. This practice of catching wild fish to feed farmed fish in inefficient and unsustainable. Fish farming practices also degrade wild habitat by polluting local waters with effluent, medicines and other additives.

Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Rating: Best Choice



Biological Information: Sablefish is commonly known as butterfish due to its soft texture, delicate flakes and rich buttery taste. These characteristics can be contributed to its high levels of healthy fatty acids. It has been consumed as a delicacy in Japan for many years and is now making its way onto the local market. Sablefish are found in muddy seabeds at depths of up to 9,000 feet and prefer the edge of the continental shelf. They are opportunistic hunters who like to feed on other fish, squid and even jellyfish. Sablefish mature early and have a long lifespan (up to 90 years).


Sustainability: Sablefish’s buttery, rich and flakey texture make it a great substitute for other impact fish, such as the Chilean Seabass. It is a very well managed fish with its population numbers well into the healthy range. When they are caught using fishing methods such as traps or bottom set lines, they have minimal bycatch and environmental impacts.

Harvest Date: 03/30/2020

Farm: Farm West Fungi

Farmer: Kyle Garrone

Share Size: Full Share 1.0 lb


Recipes:


Pan Simmered Sablefish

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Sablefish fillet

  • 1/4 cup sake

  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar

  • 1/4 cup canola, rice bran or other neutral oil

  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger

  • Dark sesame oil, for garnish

  • 3 calcot onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal, for garnish

  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

Procedure:

  1. In a large sauté pan, mix the sake, rice vinegar, canola oil, soy sauce and ginger. Bring to a simmer on medium to medium high heat.

  2. Simmer fish in sauce: Lay each fillet in the pan. (If using skin-on fillets, place the fillets skin-side down in the pan.) Use a spoon to baste the tops of each fillet until you see the flakes of the fish separate a little, which should take about 30 seconds to 1 minute per fillet.

  3. Reduce sauce: Increase the heat on the sauce and boil vigorously for 1 minute, stirring constantly to reduce the sauce.

  4. Serve: Spoon a tablespoon or more of the sauce over each fillet and discard the rest. Drizzle a little bit of sesame oil over each fillet, then garnish with the green onions and toasted sesame seeds.
