Fresh, Local, Line-caught Wild King Salmon Now at Sigona’s

Fresh, Local, Line-Caught Wild King Salmon Now at Sigona’s

Swimming yesterday, in our store today, these Omega 3-laden beauties go quickly so hurry in!

Wild King Salmon at Sigona's

Dave Kubo, or friend and local fisherman, catches and prepares the fresh-caught wild King salmon for our stores.

The commercial salmon season opened yesterday and thanks to our friend and local fisherman, Dave Kubo, we have beautiful, fresh, local, line-caught wild king salmon steaks and fillets in our Redwood City store TODAY.

That’s right. Caught yesterday and in our store today. Now that’s fresh!

These beauties are caught off the coast of Half Moon Bay and Monterey. Ocean-caught king salmon have higher levels of the naturally occurring Omega-3 fatty acids and a higher oil content that adds to their natural robust flavor and deep coloring. It’s a fantastic fish.

This season we’ll also take pre-orders for whole and half salmon at a discounted price. It’s an abundant season, so we expect a lot of fish and lower prices. Plus, these fish have been feeding on krill, which pumps up their levels of Omega 3s so they’re loaded with nutritional benefits. It’s going to be such a good season we already have a few local restaurants lined up to get fresh fish deliveries directly from us!

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter to get the latest on fresh deliveries, and be sure to try one of our favorite seasonal recipes: Sautéed Fava Beans with Herb Grilled King Salmon.

More Wattle & Comb Pastured Eggs Coming Soon

More Wattle & Comb Pastured Eggs Coming Soon

Wattle & Comb just bought in 200 more chicks that are ready to start laying petite-sized eggs called PeeWees. This means more eggs – in various sizes – are coming soon!

Top: the smaller eggs are called PeeWees and are laid by pullet, or young, hens. The larger eggs come from mature hens. Bottom: Keep your eye out for PeeWee eggs with this logo in our stores soon.

Attention Wattle & Comb pastured egg lovers: thank you for your patience as the hens lay fewer eggs during molting season – darker days makes for fewer eggs. We know you’ve been pining for more of these delicious eggs, and thank you for your understanding!

We have some good news, though! Wattle & Comb has added 200 new hens to their flock that grazes just over the hill in Pescadero. These new hens, known as pullets, lay petite-sized eggs, known as PeeWees. These eggs will increase in size as the hens mature.

Wattle & Comb announced this week that some of the pullet hens are just starting to lay so we’ll have these adorable, petite-sized PeeWees in just a couple weeks. While pullet eggs are the new rage in the culinary world, they have a certain cuteness factor that appeals to kiddos just the same. They’re sized just right for children, and their bright colors (both inside and out) make them fun to enjoy.

Of course, their appeal to children makes them easy for adults to love them even more. Pastured PeeWee eggs contain more vitamins and minerals, essential for strong growth of children’s teeth, bones and muscles. These nutrients also benefit the immune system.

Do you know what “pastured eggs” means? In short, it means the hens are raised outdoors — with access to coops if they so desire — which allows them to roam freely, eating what grows on the land, such as grasses, seeds, grains and bugs…just as nature intended. It’s better for the bird, it’s better for the eggs and it’s better for you!

When compared to typical store-bought eggs, did you know that farm-fresh pastured eggs have been found to have:

  • Higher omega-3 fatty acids
  • Less cholesterol (some studies show pastured eggs have up to 1/3 less cholesterol)
  • Higher amounts of vitamins A, E & B12
  • Higher amounts of folic acid, beta-carotene and essential fatty acid

Janina Pawlowski, founder Pescadero Food’s Wattle & Comb pastured eggs, notes that chickens are said to produce the best eggs in the first 13 weeks of their egg-laying life. Though smaller than what egg-eaters have been conditioned to think is best, pullet eggs are the most delicious and often snatched up by pastry chefs-in-the-know for their richness and “soufflé-ability!”

This is because as chickens age, egg size increases while color and quality decreases. Large and small eggs from the same chicken have the same amount of egg “material,” but larger eggs are said to have more water and therefore less rich and “eggy.”

Keep an eye out for these cute, local and pastured Wattle & Comb PeeWees – they’ll arrive just as soon as the pullet hens start laying with more frequency. Remember, Sigona’s is the only store to carry these wonderful, nutritious, pastured eggs, so tell your friends about them too!
