Shrimpin 101

 

On March 1st, 2014 our company suffered a major loss. Our founder, my father Rossario Cassarino passed away leaving behind a legacy and philosophy that we intend to continue. Quality products, quality people, and an efficient process are the cornerstone ideals in which Galveston Shrimp Company was built. Despite the grieving of his passing, we are now more focused than ever in assuring that all of our team members are instilled with these principals. We will consistently do our best and always strive to do better.

High Quality Seafood for the Public!

 

In Honor of Lent, we will be posting a recipe of the week for the next 6 weeks. This weeks recipe calls for Wild Caught Alaskan Cod available in our Retail Market for $6.99/lbs. (fillets)

seared Cod

Seared Cod with Chive Butter Sauce

Ingredients

4 (6-ounce) cod fillets

Panko Bread Crumbs

2 eggs, for egg wash

Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

4 tablespoons grapeseed oil

1/2 lemon, juiced

1 tablespoon butter

1 sprig fresh thyme

Butter Sauce, recipe follows

Butter Sauce:

2 cups white wine (recommended: Chardonnay)

2 sprigs fresh thyme

1 shallot, sliced

2 clove garlic, smashed

2 tablespoons heavy cream

1/2 lemon, juiced

2 tablespoons cold butter

3 tablespoons chopped chives

Freshly cracked black pepper

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the fillets on a sheet tray or rack so the fish can release its natural juices. Place the bread crumbs into a shallow dish. In a separate shallow dish add 2 beaten eggs. Season both sides of the fillet with salt and pepper. Once seasoned, brush the belly side of the cod with the egg. Dip the egg side into the bread crumbs.

In a cast iron skillet add grapeseed oil. Before placing fish into pan, make sure the skillet is very hot. Sear only 1 side of the fish (the side with the bread crumbs). Once 1 side is seared, place the skillet in the oven for about 3 to 4 minutes until cooked. Once the fish is cooked, flip it over and add the lemon juice, butter and sprig of thyme. Let melt and baste the fish with the juice. Pour over the Butter Sauce and serve.

Butter Sauce: In saucepan, add wine, sprigs of thyme, shallot and garlic. Set on back burner to allow the wine to reduce. Once the sauce is reduced to a syrup, strain and add the heavy cream, and lemon juice and bring to a slight simmer.

Whisk in cold butter and once melted add the fresh chives and season with black pepper.
