Seaweed for Clambake in Calgary?

  • 3

Does anyone know where I can get some Seaweed for a clambake? I've tried google, to no avail...any help is appreciated!

  1. Calgary? Home of charcoal and cattle? Not a noted clam location...maybe why no seaweed...it doesn't travel well unless it is dried in small packages

    1. Second thought...check in with a restaurant that does fresh fish or oysters, they might be or point you to a source. Good luck (or relocate your event to Tofino!)

      1. Try a fishmonger like Billingsgate. I understand that rockweed is sometimes used as a packing material for east coast seafood.

        But, it isn't really necessary for a clambake. And if you want a seaweed aroma, just put a few pieces of dulse in the steamer vessel with the clams and vegetables and any other seafood you're putting in.
