Today, two of Southeast Alaska’s most beloved craft-makers, Wildfish Cannery and Barnacle Foods, announced the launch of Wildfish Cannery Octopus in Bullwhip Kelp Hot Sauce. The first small batch of this limited release product goes on sale today.
Wildfish Smoked Herring is pretty flavorful, with deep, savory undertones, and it might just be all the salt source you need for this creamy, Italian-American-inspired pasta.
We knew we wanted to balance the crisp, alder smoke flavor of our smoked geoduck with mildly sweet aromatics in this recipe. One thing led to another, and suddenly we were inspired by the classic Sicilian pasta with fresh sardines and fennel. This linguine dish has a nice perfume from not only the fennel, but also raisins, pine nuts and white wine. Truth be told, it almost has a candy-like quality, and would sit nicely in a multi-course meal including more savory and acidic dishes.
We don't blame anyone for not knowing what to do with a live geoduck. Its randy appearance can have quite a befuddling effect on the unprepared. One look at this giant clam with a suggestive siphon and a heart of gold can send even the most experienced cooks into paroxysms of oh-lord-what-do-I-do-now. We understand. That’s why we’ve taken the shock and awe out of preparing Nature’s dirty joke. Wildfish Smoked Geoduck pops out of the can in bite-sized pieces the whole family can enjoy without embarrassment, and it makes an excellent linguine in white wine and butter. Give it a try.
Geoducks aren't exactly the most familiar of sea creatures, so we get a lot of questions. After, "What the heck is it?" (It's a giant, funny looking clam) The most common is, "Ok...so what do I do with it?"
