Let's just go ahead and lead right off with the lil dudes at right: fresh Oregon Bay Shrimp is back! Shrimp meat, cooked, peeled, and ready to eat, baby. Grab a tub to go and see if you can make it home without opening it up. Grab a Gildersleeve family recipe cocktail sauce and that answer gonna be no. And if you do make it home, may we recommend this recipe from Portland Monthly from a few years ago: Dragon Well Green Tea Shrimp. Yer welcome.

Oregon Bay Shrimp, or Pink Shrimp if you like, lead the charge on this crustacean sensation, the shellfishes for your shell dishes...

  • Manila Clams - sustainable farm-raised, Washington
  • Savory Clams - sustainable farm-raised, Washington
  • Butter Clams - wild, Washington
  • Atlantic Scallops - wild, Massachusetts
  • Dungeness Crab Meat - wild, OR/WA, cooked and picked, ready to eat

Take note of those Wild Butter Clams. They're kinda sorta a NEW PRODUCT ALERT. I think we've had them before but it has been a certifiable New York Minute since we have, so there ya go. Butter Clams are bigger than the usual Manilas and Savories, really good for soups. Have some.

* * *

Speaking of New York Minutes, our Shuck Portland principles and programming are taking us to the Big Apple. We're lending our support to the Billion Oyster Party, a like-minded oyster restoration project in historic New York Harbor. You know, the one with the Statue of Liberty and, like, a tenth of the nation's population. Keep an eye out for more Shuck stuff. Shuck's not just a festival, it's a way of life.

Like, such as: a beach cleanup and tour we've got scheduled for Saturday, June 8th. Mark your calendars and join us for a beach cleanup and tours of an oyster farm and Jacobsen Sea Salt's facility. These are always fun and productive to boot - we hope you can join us. More details and signup soon.

Now then, back to the freshness! Final reminder: It's Passover, Easter, Earth Day, 4/20. All of the best holidays to bring us all together. Kumbaya.


Boneless Ribeye: it's The Truth

Holiday Meats. Let's talk about em. What you see above is Boneless Ribeye from Painted Hills Natural Beef down in the beautiful Painted Hills. You've been, yes? Highly recommended: camping on the BLM land just past the hills themselves, make yourself a campfire, slap a slab of beef on the sizzle, gaze at yonder stars, have a bottle of wine, listen to the yotes howl. That's livin'. But until then, bring the sizzle home - the forecast is a spring beaut that calls at very least for fire on the back patio. Do it up with Ribeye, bone-in or bone-out. Cowboy or boneless, it's your world.

It's Opah, and we don't have it all the time, so there's no sense in snoozing when we do. Grab a couple fillets of that Moonfish and get cookin'. It leads our Gang of Hawaiians, which lead our Gang of Freshies altogether. Here they go!

Once again, the Nat-Matt photo connection

That dish above is but one that you might find on any given day at Ye Flying Fish Oyster Bar, a a cozy eight-seater with room for you, your guests, and a wild appetite - which we'll feed with rotating dishes like that mussel-bound goodness above with Little T bread and a fancy fresh squeeze of local butter. Smoked fish platters are always on the menu, and the ceviches and pokés change with the seasons and seasonings. Mm hmm

And if you're the type to come to an Oyster Bar looking for Oysters? Have at it, champ.

Craig Gildersleeve opened Flying Fish Company in Sandpoint, Idaho in 1979 - the year before his son Lyf was born. Lyf, president of Flying Fish Company, has spent his entire life around fish, including an aquaculture education at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University.

Flying Fish has four locations: Sandpoint, Idaho; Durango, Colorado; Park City, Utah; and Portland, Oregon. The Portland location opened in 2009 as a food cart at the D Street pod on Division Street. In 2011, we opened the fish shack on Hawthorne Boulevard. In 2016, we joined forces with our friends at Providore Fine Foods on Sandy Boulevard, and in 2017, we moved all our operations there. One location, one family, everything you need.

Thank you for supporting our family-owned business.
