Greetings, I hope you enjoyed a beautiful Labor Day Weekend!

Due to a nasty cold front and high winds, fishing has been very slow. However, it will get better later this week. Now we need to keep our eyes on Hurricane “IRMA.” This storm may be heading for the east coast?

Ok, no more negative news! Pickford’s will have a light catch for the first part of the week, but the catch is wonderful!

Please come by and pick up Pickford’s Punch Cards. Buy up to 10 pounds of Shrimp, and get the 11th pound FREE!

The Second Punch Card is for Salmon and Tuna. Buy up 10 pounds of Tuna or Salmon, and get the 11th pound FREE!

Image result for crabmeat 250 x 250Maryland Crabmeat
Maryland crab builds up fat deposits to survive cold Chesapeake winters, making its meat luscious and sweet. You can actually see the flavor in Maryland crab meat, which is marbled with yellow fat. By contrast, its Venezuelan cousin idles in warm waters year round, which is why its meat lacks comparable color and sweetness. And the Indonesian crab meat is a different species entirely, the blue swimming crab, which yields beautiful lumps of surpassing blandness.

“Yes, you can buy cheaper crab meat, but then you have to eat it!!”

Cod
Cod Fish is sometimes referred to as the Chicken of the Sea, because of its white flaky meat and mild taste.  Atlantic cod fillets have a lean meat, with a mild flavor and large white flakes when cooked.

Image result for unagi 250 x 250
Fresh Water Unagi
Unagi is prepared through the same traditional methods that have been used for thousands of years and which bring out the bold, rich flavors of the dish. Once the eel has been filleted and deboned, it is grilled over an open flame which serves to melt off the layer of fat which lies under the skin. The eel is then steamed, drained of oil, and basted in a sweet eel sauce. The final and most important step is the second grilling, allowing the eel to absorb the flavors of the sauce.  Unagi is often served on a simple bed of rice or as sashimi. Unagi sushi is called unakyu, and pairs the richness of
Unagi with the refreshing crunch of cucumber.
