Recipe of the Week - Grill Poached Opakapaka

Recipe of the Week – September 11th 2008
This recipe can be made in a Foil Pouch or on the upper rack of your grill by themselves without the foil. So, poach in the pouch or bake on the grill or in your oven! Opakapaka is a firm pink snapper that works well in both cases. It is important NOT to over cook! The fish is ready when it begins to flake. Try this with grilled asparagus and a vegetable/egg fried rice!

Seafood News
Wild Gulf Shrimp & Prawns - Well, you have watched the news. The shrimpers are having trouble with the most recent hurricanes. It is an interesting problem. On one hand, the hurricanes stir up the gulf and bring the shrimp closer to the surface. This has been referred to as the "Forrest Gump Effect", popularized in the movie starring Tom Hanks. This leads to increased catch, especially with larger shrimp. The downside to this problem is the latest hurricane dropped power to over 500,000 homes and businesses. There is virtually non-existant shore power for shore side cold storage at present. As a result of the supply disruption, we have had to cancel our promo code on Wild Shrimp & Prawns due to limited availability. We still have stock, but not enough for a big sale.

Alaska King Crab - We are down to our last 20lbs (4 Orders) of our popular Snap n Eat King Crab Legs! We were at the grocery store last week and notice the "king crab legs". If your store is like ours, our Snap n Eat King Crab Legs are generally larger and cost less, even including shipping! These are ideal for surf n turf! We have a coupon code on these thru the 15th of September or while supplies last. Save 15% on your next order with Coupon Code SNAP15.

Dungeness Crab - We are just a week away from having Whole Cooked Dungeness Crab back in stock! Right now we have Alaska Dungeness Crab Sections (Clusters) featuring fully cooked & cleaned crab. All of the edible portion of the crab is contained in the Dungeness Crab Sections. Due to the abundance of Alaska Dungeness Crab, we have LOWERED the price on Dungeness Crab Sections!

Tom Douglas Spice Rubs - The word is out! Tom Douglas Spice Rubs will have a price increase later in September. If you enjoy these Rubs, it is definitely time to stock up! We absorbed last years increase, but cannot do it again. We just negotiated a bulk price reduction based on our volume. As a result, we are going to be able to limit the price increase to about 50 cents across the board instead of the $1 we reported earlier.
