Starfish makes the most delicious frozen fish I’ve ever eaten. That it’s gluten-free and delicious is quite amazing. We were lucky enough to sample the battered halibut and cod last year, and I’ve been meaning to recommend them to you ever since. The crust is crisp and light, the fish is whole with a chew instead of processed and mushy, and the effect of each bite is to make you want more.
I’m serious. Once you take a taste of this, you’re going to want more.
You can also feel good about the fish because Starfish sources its fish through Pacific Seafood, based in Oregon, which has a strong sustainability practice. This isn’t processed fish parts clumped and battered. This is wild-harvested fish. You can taste the difference.
I’ve had the chance to talk with the folks at Starfish, and in particular the head of Research and Development. He told me recently that the letters they receive from gluten-free folks mean more to them than any other. “People are so grateful. That pushes us to do more and better.” This company truly cares about good gluten-free food.
Starfish Seafood is available nationwide at Whole Foods and at many stores near you.
This is a good company. We’re very happy and honored to have them here with us.
We’re also very happy to have Nakano Vinegars aboard.
Danny and I are both pretty crazy about rice wine vinegar. Rice wine vinegar adds a bit of sweetness, with a punch. The tangy quality keeps your lips puckered, trying to discover what that taste is. Rice wine veingar shows up in quite a bit of foods in our kitchen. I use it to season the water for poaching eggs (it also helps the egg white to coagulate). Danny splashes it into his favorite barbecue sauce. We couldn’t pickle jicama or carrots without it.
Danny says he likes to splash rice wine vinegar in with miso, because it enhances the flavor so well. If you’re making anything with a sweet and sour taste, anything with cabbage, and most every salad you’ll make, you need rice wine vinegar.
We use Nakano’s natural rice wine vinegar around here, but Nakano also makes flavored rice wine vinegars that a lot of people love. We appreciate the fact that Nakano has worked hard to make sure their vinegars are gluten-free and support the gluten-free community.
This is another good company, one we’re happy to have as part of the team.
Buy some battered fish and splash some rice wine vinegar on it for fish and chips!
