Pickled Willy’s Gourmet Pickled Seafood

logo

Pickled Willy’s is a specialty seafood processing plant in Kodiak, Alaska, that started out as Alaska’s only pickling plant. Co-owner Bill Alwert, a retired Alaska Commercial Fishermen, started years ago pickling fish and created a long standing family recipe that became so popular with family and friends that he wanted to share it with everyone. The Alwert family still has the family boat, the Buccaneer out of Kodiak, but Bill has since retired to the beach.

The family recipe is undeniably good and there’s certainly no way to get fresher seafood than straight from the vessels of Kodiak Island and other Alaskan Ports.

All Pickled Willy’s seafood is 100% sustainable and found in Alaskan Waters and processed right in Kodiak. Pickled Willy’s products are hand packed, low in fat, high in Omega-3’s, all natural, gluten free and have no preservatives.

I recently had the chance to work with Pickled Willy’s and tried three of their pickled seafood products. The full line of pickled seafoods includes: Pickled Alaska Halibut, Pickled Alaska Ling Cod, Pickled King Crab, Pickled Sockeye Salmon. 

Each 16 oz jar contains a mix of Organic Vinegar, Cane Sugar, Water, Pickling Spice, Onion, Salt and fish/seafood, and has a shelf life of 5 months.
 
The Pickled Alaska Halibut, is boneless and skinless, with a pure snow white flesh and firm texture has a sweet smooth flavor and is perfect for ceviche.

The Pickled Sockeye Salmon has a bright red hue and a much firmer texture than the halibut. I’m not sured to eating salmon this way but after getting used the texture, I quite enjoyed it and didn’t find it as vinegar-y as the Halibut. I paired it with edamame and tomatoes and served it over mixed greens from my CSA, for a delicious lunch.

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while NOT eating gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.
