Let's Get Crackin' this NYE! Posted on 12.23.16

Crab crackin’, that is! There are lots of reasons to go out on New Year’s Eve, but even more to stay in: you can hang out as long as you like without feeling obliged to leave a big tip, playing cards and games at the table isn't frowned upon, and the champagne tends to be cheaper! Make your NYE night-in even more fun with a Dungeness crab feast fit for a king … or just you and your cat, no judgments here! Here’s what you’ll need to pull this off.

Get pre-cooked crabs. The ambitious few might feel inclined to buy live crabs then cook and clean them. But that takes a whole lot of work and the fun right out of the experience. Buy 'em already cooked! You'll thank us later. Most grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and seafood shops offer pre-cooked crabs so they shouldn't be hard to find. Heat up your pre-cooked...

5 Ideas for Pescatarian Thanksgiving Posted on 11.11.16

Thanksgiving is not just for the omnivores! Even if you don't identify as a pescatarian or vegetarian, branching away from the old into the deep blue new makes for a fun change-up that everyone will love, especially when using high quality, wild-caught fish!

Even better than fun and different, seafood is quick to cook (15 minutes instead of 3 hours or more!). Spend a little more time with your family and a lot less time checking the temperature of the bird.

Your Fishy Questions Answered! Posted on 09.07.16

You asked, Diane Morgan has answered! Here's what the author of Salmon: Everything You Need to Know has to say about your fishiest questions.

I’ve heard a lot of conflicting things about eating seafood while pregnant.

Eating sustainable seafood during pregnancy can be a terrific source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, vital for a baby’s growth and development. The 2015-2020 Federal Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that pregnant women eat at least 8 ounces and up to 12 ounces of seafood a week, choosing seafood that is low in mercury. This recommendation is also supported by the Mayo Clinic and the American Pregnancy Association.

  • ENJOY a variety of fish and seafood that is low in mercury and high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as: wild-caught salmon, trout, steelhead, Atlantic and Pacific mackerel, anchovies, sardines, and herring. Other safe choices include: domestic, wild-caught or... Read more

10 Gorgeous Glamping Destinations in the Northwest Posted on 05.26.16

"Glamping" has become the new way to get outside, and even though we're often partial to more traditional outdoor treks, we think it's awesome. If you go glamping instead of the usual camping, you get to spend time in the outdoors without stringing your food up in a tree or being afraid to run out of your tent to pee at night. It usually involves a yurt, decked-out camping trailer, or luxury canvas tent. When you tell your hardcore outdoor friends about your upcoming vacation and they roll their eyes and say, "That's not camping," you can happily say, "You're right, it's glamping." Unfortunately that probably won't shut them up about how you "should" be spending time in the great outdoors, but you're still going to have fun.

If you're based in the Northwest like we are at Fishpeople, there are tons of truly beautiful glamping destinations within a day's drive. Even if you're not, you should make... Read more
