It’s Finally Back! Red Sockeye Salmon

 

wild_sockeye_filet

It’s been a long wait, but we finally managed to get our hands on a recent catch of Sockeyes. They are in our opinion the tastiest of all wild salmon species. They are not quite as fatty as the

king salmon, but they still provide plenty of omega 3 and other nutrients due to their varied feed in the wild.

These sockeye come from the cold waters of Kamtjatka and are recently certified by the MSC as sustainable. Kamchatka contains probably the world’s greatest diversity of salmonid fish, including all six species of anadromous Pacific salmon (chinook, chum, coho, seema, pink, and sockeye). Due to its uniquely suitable environment, biologists estimate that a fifth of all Pacific salmon originates in Kamchatka.

Raw Organic Coconut Water

Chopping up coconuts with a cleaver is a fun afternoon activity, but it’s not very practical to carry around a pound of coconut and a big blade everywhere you go. Raw coconut water is chock-full of electrolytes and it’s perfect to replenish your fuel after sports or as a refreshing drink in Bangkok’s hot climate.

To help you out we put raw organic coconut water in a convenient bottle to bring with you or keep around in the fridge at home. Nothing has been added, since coconut water is already sweet on it’s own.

Just 40 Baht per bottle. Now available on our grocery under the Healthy Living tab.

South African Beef Jerky!

South African Jerky is called Biltong from the Dutch words Bil (rump) and tong (strip or tongue). It is typically made from raw fillets of meat cut into strips.

Indigenous peoples of Southern Africa, such as the Khoikhoi, preserved meat by slicing it into strips, curing it with salt, and hanging it up to dry. After European settlers (Dutch, German, French) arrived in southern Africa in the early 17th century, they improved the curing process by using vinegar, saltpetre and spices including pepper, coriander and cloves.

Biltong differs American Jerky in 3 distinct ways:

1) The meat used in biltong can be much thicker; typically biltong meat is cut in strips approx 1″ (25 mm) wide – but can be thicker. Jerky is normally very thin meat.
2) The vinegar, salt and spices in biltong, together with the drying process, cure the meat as well as adding texture and flavour. Jerky is traditionally dried with salt but without vinegar.
3) Jerky is often smoked; biltong is never smoked.

The ingredients of Biltong are: Meat, Black Pepper, Coriander, Salt, Vinegar. No nitrites.

While biltong is usually eaten as a snack, it can also be diced up into stews, or added to muffins. Biltong can also be used as a teething aid for babies. It’s perfect if you go on a trip, hiking, camping, a long flight or if you want some extra protein. One pack of 50 grams will contain over 29 grams of protein. It’s now available under our NZ Beef section on the Grocery page. Fill in “ILoveBiltong” in the voucher code and we’ll add 2 packs for free with your first order. Valid until August 15.
