Week 4, Premier Fish- Grey Sole Fillet


                                                                                     

It's our final week of the Holiday Seafood Medley Session and NH Community Seafood's final week of the season.  Thank you all for participating in this unique blend of NH's freshest seafood for the Holiday Season. We will surely feature this again next year.

Our Community Supported Fishery (CSF) season will begin again next spring. We will be bringing you local fish and other Add On items, like the variety of shellfish we featured this session.

Look for a sign up email notification in March 2016 to become a Member of NH's only cooperatively owned CSF!

Our "Premier Fish" for this Holiday Session is Grey (or Torbay) sole, otherwise known as Witch FlounderCommon throughout the Gulf of Maine, the Grey Sole is known for it's high quality texture and small, delicately flavored fillets. 

Your sole fillets will be from 2-4 ounces each and delicate and thin. They will cook quickly so be cautious not to overcook. Here are some great recipes, including Crab Meat Stuffed Sole, as seen above: https://www.pinterest.com/aquanor/grey-sole-recipes/.

Thank you to  President of NH Community Seafood's Board of Directors  and our Lobsterman for this Session, Damon Frampton, Captain of F/V Vivian May of Portsmouth, for providing us with live NH lobsters Week 2 and the Fresh Lobster Meat and Lobster Ravioli all Season.

It's Oyster Week!

 

 

                             

Hello Holiday Seafood Medley Members,

Are we having fun yet? We are loving being able to provide you all with this great variety of the freshest seafood NH has to offer for the Holiday through NH's Only Community Supported Fishery!

This week, we will feature oysters grown right here in New Hampshire, in Great Bay! Your oysters will be harvested the night before your pick up, so it doesn't get any fresher than that!

Our oysters this week come from my former co-worker and friend, Brian Gennaco, owner of Virgin Oyster Company in Dover. We also received oysters from Wagon Hill Oysters, owned by former colleagues and  long time UNH professors, Researchers and oyster farmer experts, Dr. Ray Grizzle and Dr. David Berlinsky (also a fish aquaculturist).

               

   Brian Gennaco and his wife, Sarah                                           Dr. Ray Grizzle

Most people know about eating oysters raw on the halfshell, but they can also be cooked, smoked, fried, used in soups and chowders and mixed in with a variety of other seafood in recipes! Here are some great for your oysters:https://www.pinterest.com/explore/oyster-recipes/.

For Christmas week, we have some adjustments to some of our pick ups:

Manchester: Moved to Wednesday, same times

Exeter: Moved to Wednesday, same times

Peterborough: Moved to Wednesday, same times

All other Friday Pick Ups, Dover, Durham and Portsmouth:

Moved to Thursday, same times

Our premier fish for next week, weather dependent of course, will be Grey Sole! So you can plan your Christmas week fish dinner now! 

Happy Holidays and thanks for making it Seafood for the Season!

With Wishes of Peace and Joy,

Andrea

Hello Session 4 CSF Members,

 

We are in our final week of our last 6-week Session for the Season. We have purchased close to 40,000 pounds of fish from our NH Fishermen this year,  through our incentive buyer program,  that has put an extra $10,000 into the hands of our local Fishing Community. Thank you to all of you who have been CSF Members this year and years past!

 

DECK THE HALLS WITH PLATES OF SEAFOOD THIS HOLIDAY!!

We are anxiously anticipating our First Annual Holiday Seafood Medley Session for the month of December, which will feature a variety of diverse locally sourced NH seafood such as scallops, oysters, lobsters and a premier fish. For a one time price of $70 for the four weeks you will receive "one share". See our website for details. You can order multiple shares for you and your family and friends to share! You do not have to be a former Member to sign up for this session, so please tell your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers about this exciting Seafood Medley Session.

                                                    

We will also be offering our popular Lobster Ravioli AND Fresh lobster tail and claw meat as Shellfish Add Ons for our Holiday Medley Session! Don't miss this great month of all NH's waters have to offer for the Holiday!

It is also with great pleasure, that we offer our Grand Finale Fish for the Season, the much protected, but not unattainable Atlantic cod, scientifically called Gadus morhua.

Due to drastic cuts in the federally mandated catch allotment for cod in the past 5 years, many of our NH ground fishermen have either left the industry for alternative work or turned to lobstering. Cod catch allotments have been reduced to a mere 3% of the former amounts. Once plentiful and abundant in our New England waters, cod was a New England staple and our signature fish. "In Cod We Trust" was the motto of fishermen here for centuries.

Cod became regionally popular as early as the 1600's here in New England. However, over the past hundred years, there has been an international demand for all forms of cod, including the age old "salted cod", which keeps for up to a year and is used widely all over the world in a variety of cuisines. With this increased demand in cod and an ever increasing world population, came a severely overfished and poorly regulated fishery.

Since 2000, cod stocks have been on the dramatic decline and this has redefined the fishing industry in New England as a whole. Our once thriving NH fishing fleet is now down to no more than 9 active boats, throughout the entire Seacoast! Our fishermen have been purposely avoiding cod all season this year, due to the strict limits on the catch allotment, which would have forced them to stop fishing altogether, for all species. Once they catch the total cod allotment for the year, they have to stop fishing.

Most of the cod you have seen lately for sale in our area has been coming in frozen from Iceland and Norway, as cod migrate north and flourish in those waters, with less restrictive limitations on the fishery.

So, it is with great anticipation that we offer once again, this longtime King of Atlantic. Our Fishermen this week is Ricky Anderson, Captain of the F/V Bridget Leigh. Ricky is one of the last NH groundfishermen who is still out gillnet fishing this season! Thanks Ricky for letting us have this treat as our last fish of the season!

                        

                                                         Captain Ricky Anderson of the F/V Bridget Leigh

 

 

Cod is great cooked any way: baked, broiled, sautéed, grilled or steamed. It's also very popular in New England Fish Chowder. Remember the cardinal rule for cooking any fish; 10 minutes per inch of fillet thickness, any way you cook it. Here are some great recipe ideas for cod, including some New England favorites:http://allrecipes.com/recipes/418/seafood/fish/cod/.

Baked Cod Fillets on White Bean and Cherry Tomato Stew

 

 

If you haven't tried our Shellfish Add ons yet, you should! Many of our members have taken advantage of these Member Only Shellfish treats in the form of our Lobster Ravioli, from Portsmouth Lobster Company The 12 oz. bags have 10 huge raviolis with Gulf of Maine caught lobster and cost just $15! Orders are preordered and must be placed by Monday at 9pm the week of pick up!

Community Supported Fishery

Eat Fresher Fish.  Support Your Fishing Community.

 

Hello Local Seafood Supporters,

We are winding down our Season and still continue to provide you with fresh, locally caught NH and Gulf of Maine Seafood from our local boats to your plate. It's the "Fish to Dish" movement and we are leading the way here in NH with one of 50 Community Supported Fisheries (CSF) throughout the country!

We are also gearing up for our Holiday Medley Session for the month of December, which will feature each week one of the following locally caught delicacies: scallops, live lobsters, oysters and a premier fish. Sign ups will be enabled this week for this exciting first time Seafood smorgasbord for the Holiday!

This week's Catch of the Week is the Monkfish. Formerly caught as by-catch in otter trawls and gillnets, monkfish have quickly become one of the world's most popular fish. In the west, usually just the tail meat is eaten, but in there is a large market for whole monkfish in Asian countries. Also known as "Poor Man's Lobster", monkfish tail meat has both the consistency and distinct taste of this famous crustacean. If you like lobster, you'll love monkfish! And if you don't like lobster, the firm, white fillet when cooked also tastes like a sweetened fish. The flesh is a purplish-brownish color when raw and turns white once cooked. 

Not at all attractive on the outside, monkfish should not be judged by their outward appearance! They are  brownish color mottled with white spots on top and white on the underbelly. Their habitat spans from the Grand Banks and northern Gulf of St. Lawrence along the Atlantic shoreline south to Cape Hatteras, NC. Monkfish are voracious predators. They lurk on the sandy, muddy bottom and lure their prey with the spiny extension on their head. This "lure" attracts the prey, like bait on fishing line, bringing the victim close in for the lunge of the monkfish. The unusually broad mouth , adapted to swallow whole fish, shrimp and squid, is lined with layers of stubby white teeth.

Cook monkfish as you would any other fish, and remember the cardinal rule, 10 minutes an inch! The monkfish "fillets" are wide and thick, because they are the tail meat. Marinating the tails and seasoning before cooking adds to the flavor. Baked, sauteed, broiled, roasted or grilled, these tails are fantastic!

Here are some great recipe ideas for monkfish: https://www.pinterest.com/fishisthedish/monkfish-recipes/.

 Or try it in a kebab, with herb marinated monktail:


Our NH Fishermen for this week are gillnetters Ricky Anderson of the F/V Bridget Leigh and Jamie Hayward of the F/V Heidi Elisabeth.  Both these fishermen are day boat fishing and landing their catch in Seabrook and Portsmouth, NH. Thanks for the great monkfish guys!

                                     Captain Rick Anderson of F/V Bridget Leigh

                                           

                       

           Captain Jamie Hayward of the F/V Heidi Elisabeth

 

Need some extra fish one week for that family get together or this weekend's dinner party? You can freeze our fish for up to six months and it will maintain its integrity in the freezer! We continue to offer an Additional Fish Feature on the Member Log In page. Just choose from our 1lb increments how much extra fish you would like, pay online and the fish will be delivered with your regular share!

Did you know it's Restaurant Week in Portsmouth through this Saturday, November 14? Participating restaurants offer special three course prix fix menus at two unbelievable prices: $16.95 for lunch or $29.95 for dinner per person. Some restaurants extend the $16.95 value price to dinner as well.  Be sure to review each restaurant’s menu.

Some of the participating Restaurants buy our fish and will be serving it all week! Please, if  you are going to take advantage of this special event, remember the following great establishments have fresh, NH caught fish from our Restaurant Supported Fishery (RSF) program:

     

LOGISTICS:

VOLUNTEERING WITH US:

If you can help with any aspect, labelling bags, handing out lobsters at your pick up or just promoting this session in your community, please contact me via text, phone call or email! Each self-help pick up location will need a live body for our live lobster week!

Hello CSF Members,

We are already in Week 4 of our final 6-week Session for 2015! We will be offering our first ever Holiday Seafood Medley Session in December. This 4-week Session will feature a different NH local seafood each week, including NH sourced oysters, scallops, a premier fish and possibly live lobsters! Sign ups for this Session start next week. Look for the informational email!

We are supporting our few NH Trip Boat Fishermen this week. Many of our Day Boat fishermen are winding down their season or shifting to a different fishery like lobsters or bait fish.

So far this Season, we have purchased almost 30,000 pounds of fresh and local fish from our NH and Gulf of Maine Fishermen in an effort to help offset the financial pressures they are feeling due to increasingly stringent regulations and restrictions on catch limits!

In addition to our very popular Shellfish Add Ons, we are featuring one of the Atlantic's best kept secrets this week, the Acadian Redfish.

 

The Acadian Redfish, scientifically known as Sebastes fasciatus and otherwise known as Ocean Perch, looks like a tropical fish from the islands. This member of the rockfish (grouper) family is a deep water, goggle eyed, slow-growing, fish that spans from Norway to Georges Bank in our Atlantic Ocean. Not to be confused with red drum, a southern species down south, the Redfish births live young (very rare with fish) and can live to be up to 50 years old! This species, once thought of as by-catch, is quicky becoming one of the more popular fish in the US and here in New England!

The fillets on these fish are thin and delicate but have a distinctly sweet flavor. You will receive your fillets with the red skin on. Remember, the skin of the fish is where most of the healthy Omega-3 oils are stored AND they add a lot of flavor when cooking. Try them in fish tacos, sautéed in butter with lemon and garlic or on the grill in tin foil. Here is a link to a number of great redfish recipes on our Pinterest Page:https://www.pinterest.com/nhcsf/acadian-redfish/. And remember the cardinal rule for cooking fish10 minutes per inch, including flip time! Because these fillets are very thin, you will therefore only need to cook them for a few minutes each side!

 

 

Our fisherman this week is Tim Daggett of the F/V Anne Marie, owned by longtime NH Fisherman, Fanel Dobre.  Fanel's other boat, the F/V Jennifer K may also contribute.

 

If you haven't tried our Shellfish Add ons yet, you should! Many of our members have taken advantage of these Member Only Shellfish treats in the form of our Lobster Ravioli, from Portsmouth Lobster Company.  The 12 oz. bags have 10 huge raviolis with Gulf of Maine caught lobster and cost just $15! Orders are preordered and must be placed by Monday at 9pm the week of pick up!

 

We are pleased to be co-hosting a special event at the Portsmouth Music Hall Loft this Wednesday, November 4 at 7pm. Please join us for one of Greenfire Productions great films! Tickets are available at: http://www.themusichall.org/calendar/event/ocean_frontiers_ii_a_new_england_story_for_sustaining_the_sea. $11 general admission, $8 for students, military and seniors.
