Schwartz Concocts a Bánh Mì Sandwich with our Wild Gulf Shrimp!

Mike Schwartz was a U of M student at the time and was working a lot of hours with us, considering he was a student. He had an interest in fish and cooking and already had restaurant experience behind him from his high school years in Livonia. From the start he helped us with recipe ideas for the market and even though Mike went on to become a lawyer and now a teacher, he still pops in to help out, make a prepared dish, or give some recipe ideas.

The Weird & Wonderful Razor Clam!

A rare and unusual treat that we love have been popping up lately—Maine Razor Clams. With a long shell shaped like a straight razor and a foot that's as long as its body, it's one weird looking critter...Some of the reasons that these clams are rare at market is because harvesting is difficult and they are very brittle, fragile, don't travel well and are very perishable. Our Razor Clam supplier, Harbor Fish in Portland Maine, gives us a heads-up whenever they have them but unfortunately that is not often enough.
