The ‘Shipwreck’ Is A Massive Seafood Sandwich Built On A Loaf Of Garlic Bread


The best part of hitting up a seafood emporium is the variety of options you have available. Everything from freshly fried calamari to creamy clam chowder and freshly grilled fish is on deck.

While it may be hard to pick just one item to enjoy, there’s always the option of combining them all together, and this sandwich does just that.

Called the Shipwreck, this all-in-one sub is easily enough to feed the entire squad. Found at the San Pedro Fish Market Grille, this bountiful fish sandwich carries all of the ocean’s most mouthwatering treasures.

That involves heaps of fried calamari, slabs of grilled salmon, and a healthy portion of clam chowder (yes, you get soup IN this sandwich) tucked into made-to-order garlic bread. It’s all brought together with deep-fried potatoes, fajita vegetables with cheese, and San Pedro’s Secret Sauce.

All three locations of the San Pedro Fish Market Grille, in Wilmington, Rolling Hills Estates, and Harbor City, California, are now carrying The Shipwreck through the end of January. If you can’t make the drive out to one of the Grilles to try this in person, San Pedro Fish Market does sell spices, hot sauces, and Minute Meals online that you can order to make this bad boy within the confines of your own kitchen.

The Shipwreck is the seafood enthusiast’s cheat meal and the sandwich fanatic’s dream all wrapped up in one, and is an absolute beast capable of capsizing almost any appetite. It’s worth the challenge of seeking out and conquering, whether it be solo or with a couple of hungry pals.

Clam Chowder Cup Noodles Are Served With A MASSIVE CLAM


Clam chowder and coconut curry come from two very different countries. However, the flavors harmonize together in this restaurant’s creative twist on Nissin Cup Noodles.

These Clam Chowder Cup Noodles are the brainchild of Chef Dean Isom at Shuck Oyster Bar, a seafood establishment in Costa Mesa, CA. Chef Isom got the idea to make them from his love of Cup Noodles, Asian dishes, and Shuck’s classic clam chowder.

At the base of Isom’s creation is a mixture of speck (a smoked, dry-cured prosciutto), garlic oil, minced fennel seed, and Thai green curry powder. This mixture is combined with coconut milk, lime juice, diced cooked potatoes, and chopped clams to create the chowder-curry hybrid. Once the noodles are mixed in, the entire cup is garnished with a mini baguette, Thai basil, micro cilantro, and fresh Littleneck clams.

Together, the curry and chowder components intermingle for a mix of spicy, creamy, and aromatic flavors that have to be tasted to be believed.

Shuck will have this innovative Cup Noodles dish on the menu while supplies last.

15 Foods That Define America, According To The Rest Of The World

Everyone has an opinion when it comes to American food. A few weeks ago, we shared a video showing Korean girls trying American barbecue for the first time and what their initial impressions were.

What we spent most of our lives eating in the US is a completely different experience for those living on the other side of the world.

A question was recently posed on Reddit asking what non-Americans would consider American food. Growing up in the US, there are a TON of answers that immediately popped into our heads.

Pretty cool to see what folks from other countries consider the symbol of American food.

Grub Like a Grumpy Sailor With Beer-Infused Clam Chowder

dogfishchowder1

It’s easy to argue Captain Ahab was an angry, maniacal loon, but maybe he was just drunker than he thought. That’s the story I would roll with anyway, and thanks to Delaware’s Dogfish Head brewery, acting like a belligerent seadog now comes standard with a bowl of IPA-infused Clam Chowder.

Dubbed “Hard Tack,” Dogfish Head’s belly-warming slop is based on a recipe from Moby Dick – a mixture of Ocean Quahog Clams, salted pork and hardtack biscuits infused with the brewery’s famous 60 Minute IPA. Of course, side-effects may include brooding at cemeteries and asking people to “Call you Ishmael.” But when paired with an Indian Brown Ale or 90 Minute IPA, there’s no better way to ride out a particularly trying voyage, even if it’s just in a inflatable donut down a crowded lazy river.

The 13 Best Things About Eating Clam Chowder

breadbowl

It’s National New England Clam Chowder Day, folks, which means if you live anywhere with normal. January. weather, it’s about time you changed your dinner plans. Unless you were planning on eating clam chowder to begin with, in which case, you probably already know what’s up.

For everyone else though, here’s some of the best parts about eating the creamiest, feel-good-iest, tragically-most-underappreciated-iest cold weather food, ever.

1. Not getting it served in a ceramic bowl:

Ceramic bowls are sad and cold and don’t do their due duty of serving as a dish and well, a dish, all at the same time.

Sad:

2. Actually getting it in a bread bowl, complete with cutaway top for your dipping pleasure:

5. Don’t forget the toppings!

8. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you could even try it in an all-bacon bowl:

9. Or you could get it with popcorn:

10. Or try a clam chowder po-boy:

This is What Clam Chowder Udon Looks Like

Earlier this week I had a chance to fly out to Cleveland, Ohio for Certified Angus Beef’s 2012 Culinary Ideation and Trends Session. The post for all that is coming soon, but while I was there, I also caught wind of at least one food item I never thought I would hear about, ever.

I im’ed my editor immediately:

“Clam. Chowder. Udon.”

This explosion of East meets . . . further . . . East comes from Cleveland-based restaurant Noodlecat, which opened in August 2011. Branded as a “slurpalicious Japanese-American mash-up from Chef Jonathon Sawyer,” much of Noodlecat’s menu looks like what happens when a college student decides to go to culinary school and comes back to make the exact same foods he made before, only a million times better.

To be honest, the whole menu is jaw-dropping, so expect this to turn into a continuing series of posts, but to kick us off, the Clam Chowder Udon pictured above is a fusion-inspired soup made with udon noodles, potatoes, onions, celery and bacon, in a creamy clam and bonito broth.

Truth be told, the official menu actually says the bacon is “optional,” but if you’re a regular Foodbeast reader, you should know by now that bacon is never optional. And if you’re a regular Foodbeast reader from Ohio, neither is paying Noodlecat a visit. Like, right now.
