Spring 2017 - Week #3

Featured Producer: Starbird Fish

“Know your fisherman” is the motto of Starbird Fish. Owned and operated by Tony Naples, who spends part of the year fishing off the coast of Alaska. Starbird Fish is sourced from one of the world’s most sustainable wild fisheries in the Aleutian Islands. Anthony and his crew work long hours in the summer months when wild Alaskan salmon migrate up and down the coast to return to their original spawning grounds. The salmon is caught, immediately chilled, and is processed and frozen within 24 hours to maximize freshness. 

To see the results of the successful management of this precious resource is one of the most inspiring things I have ever taken part in; it’s a truly amazing experience, year after year, and I’m stoked to be bringing it home to share with you in the form of delicious and nutritious wild salmon!" - Captain Tony

Eat This First: Microgreens and Turnips

  • Microgreens are tiny baby greens, grown in soil and cut after just a few weeks of growth. They're a nutritional powerhouse, and should be eaten ASAP for the best quality and flavor! Add them to sandwiches, top salads, soup, scrambles, omelettes, or tacos.
  • Scarlet turnips add a nice burst of color to a slaw, or to a jar of pickled vegetables.
