Princess SeaFood at the Saturday Market with just caught black cod and here is a great recipe

Ingredients

3 tablespoons each honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, grated

4 sablefish (black cod) fillets
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 green onions, thinly sliced (white and green parts)
Instructions

Combine first 7 ingredients in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Add sablefish, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes.

Remove fish from dish and reserve marinade. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and lay fish in pan, skin side up. Cook 5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and to desired degree of doneness.

While fish cooks, pour reserved marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook 7 minutes, or until marinade is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Brush fish with glaze and garnish with sliced green onions.

This is also GREAT on the grill. Marinade and BBQ for 7-10 minutes skin down and don’t flip.

Recipe adapted from The Nourish Evolution blog.

Manager’s Pick
Right now it has to be the red and the yellow cherries! So juicy and tasty.

A perfect balance of sweet and tart, cherries are juicy and give a little snap when you bite into them, also delivering a dose of potassium, vitamin C and fiber. Though you may find tart or sour cherries in farmers’ markets, the most common varieties are sweet cherries, such as yellow Rainier and dark red Bing cherries

They have a short season. 10 ways to save some cherry goodness.

Ponce/EGB Farms and Busalacchi have cherries.

Who doesn’t love tacos?
This a recipe for omnivores and carnivores

Every week the market has the ingredients for a meal feeding four on special. We want you to try new things and to see the difference high quality ingredients make in even the simplest dish

The Saturday February 8th  meal deal is beef tacos
Salmon Creek Ranch has a special on their Angus ground beef $2 off each pound
“We are proud that many customers including chefs have told us ours is the best beef they have ever tasted. We cut no corners — all our beef carcasses are “dry aged” to perfection (three weeks) at extra expense before butchering. All our cuts are USDA-inspected, labeled and use premium quality vacuum packaging for maximum long-term freshness rather than the common low-cost paper wrapping commonly found on beef that questionably circumvents USDA inspection or tries to reduce costs at the expense of quality.”

Mi Fiesta is providing the tortillas  corn or flour your choice  50 cents off each package. They taste homemade

Hector’s Honey — onions are grown less than three miles from the market.

Parsons Homegrown has the best tasting winter tomato in the world $1.00 off a pound. Parsons Homegrown is located in Fulton just a mile or two from the market

Orchard Farms Organic lettuce mix – just about a dollars worth.

Leon Day’s Lava Sauce “”Molten Skovilles” Only five bucks this Saturday
We have added habaneros to the Volcanic hot sauce..This is the boiler…any hotter you lose the wonderful taste. For lovers of the absolutes…Taste and heat… Ingredients:tomato, habanero, serrano, jalepeno, onions, ginger, vinegar, fructose and lemon juice.

1 lb. ground beef from Salmon Creek
1 1/2 lb onion from Hector (ask for the medium yellow onions) diced

2 cloves garlic minced
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp cayenne (or more if you want it spicy )
A pinch of salt and black pepper
1 package corn OR flour tortillas from Mi Fiesta
Salad mix from Orchard
Leon Day’s Lava Sauce

Pre-heat olive oil in a pan over med to med high heat.
Add the ground beef, 1/2 of the onion and 2 cloves of garlic a pinch of salt and black pepper.

Just under our $20 goal but we guarantee these will be the best beef tacos you’ve ever had…. the ingredients are so good you can’t go wrong.

A little taco trivia
Jeffrey M. Pilcher, professor of history at the University of Minnesota forthcoming Planet Taco: A Global History of Mexican Food (Oxford University Press says this about the history of the taco
The origins of the taco are really unknown. My theory is that it dates from the 18th century and the silver mines in Mexico, because in those mines the word “taco” referred to the little charges they would use to excavate the ore. These were pieces of paper that they would wrap around gunpowder and insert into the holes they carved in the rock face. When you think about it, a chicken taquito with a good hot sauce is really a lot like a stick of dynamite. The first references [to the taco] in any sort of archive or dictionary come from the end of the 19th century. And one of the first types of tacos described is called tacos de minero—miner’s tacos. So the taco is not necessarily this age-old cultural expression; it’s not a food that goes back to time immemorial.

So at the same time, what’s happening with tacos in Mexico?
You’re also starting to see new migrants coming into Mexico. For example, there are a lot of Lebanese migrants, and one of the things they bring with them is shawarma, or gyros—vertical rotisseries where they cook lamb, and they put it on little pita breads. But when they start putting [the meat] on tortillas, they’re called tacos arabes: Arab tacos. Again, it’s the second generation, the children of these Lebanese migrants, who change the recipe a little bit and start using pork instead of lamb. And they start adding a little pineapple. Tacos al pastor, which really doesn’t catch on until the 1960s, then becomes a standard Mexican dish that’s everywhere.

Saturday’s Meal Deal is Kale Frittata.


The frittata recipe features Weirauch’s Tomme Fraiche, produced with milk from a nearby Jersey-cow dairy, is delicious, . Modeled loosely after the fresh cheese produced in Salers and used for aligot (mashed potatoes with garlic and cheese), Tomme Fraiche is made with curds that are neither cooked nor pressed. A fresh-cut piece has a rich dairy aroma, merging the fragrance of warm cultured butter and sour cream. Enjoy Weirauch Farm Tomme Fraiche as a table cheese or in panini, on polenta or on pizza OR FRITTATA
