Quality seafood in Nebraska just does not exist unless you are willing to have it flown in. Thankfully, Fathom Seafood offers this opportunity to get quality Dungeness crab no matter where you live in the country. We were happy to receive a gift certificate to try out this great seafood this month, and I jumped at the chance.
Fathom only offers live Dungeness crab and Pacific Northwest live geoduck. Nothing else and nothing more. They make it convenient to order through their website and you will receive your order within 24 hours. No one else offers just these two great live products on the scale of Fathom Seafood. Last year they shipped 1.5 million pounds of Dungeness crab throughout North America. This is ocean-to-table at its finest. They sell to the best restaurants in the nation, but more importantly they can ship directly to your home.
Fathom’s mission is to provide access and education about live seafood in the United States. They have worked hard to create direct relationships with fishermen and docks along the West Coast to provide the best quality live seafood possible.
So we chose a date, we ordered our pair of Dungeness crab, and we waited. The next morning, Federal Express showed up with a package in a brown box, and we opened it up. The Styrofoam cooler is inside the box and it included a letter, a card and 2 live Dungeness crab along with a freezer pack or two. That night, we steamed them in a pot with some Old Bay Seasoning and just attacked those crabs. I love Old Bay with blue crabs, but it was perfect with the Dungeness crabs along with melted and drawn butter. A perfect meal for a date night without having to leave home.
Live crab in Nebraska in January is a tremendous treat and it can be a treat in whatever state you live at a surprisingly reasonable cost that doesn’t have to break the bank. It’s not going to be something that you eat weekly but a couple of times a year, it’s an outstanding gift to yourself. Fathom Seafood provides live seafood in 24 hours all across the continental United States, and it is fantastic.
