ISO Regional Specialties of the west coast for Mail Order
I haven’t found any places that have prepared food peculiar to the West Coast, but here are three good sources for seafood:
Fisherman’s Express’s shrimp are small and tedious to peel, so I use that site for salmon and scallops. For shrimp and crab, I use Great Alaska Seafood.
All my orders from these places have arrived in perfect condition*; no taste of being held in the hold too long before processing.
Software is acting up, so if the links don’t work, search for:
Phil’s Fish Market (Moss Landing, CA)
Great Alaska Seafood
*I would particularly commend Phil’s; one alleged “overnight” shipper, choosing to ignore the large “perishable” label, delivered the food in a state of advanced odiferousness. It wasn’t Phil’s fault, but they replaced it free of charge.
For Seattle and Washington specialties, try these:
Pike Place Fish Market
the place where they throw the fish
Port Chathan Smoked Seafood
Lopez Island Farms
preserves and spreads, including my favorite, Northwest Slug Butter!
Aplets & Cotlets
Walla Walla Sweet Onions
Tom Douglas rubs and sauces
Love Washington Wine
The Pacific Northwest Shop
