Zaycon Foods Seafood

22 Feb

A while back I heard about Zaycon Foods.  They are a company that formed in 2009 to bring fresh meats to customers at wholesale prices.  They do events all over the US.  At the time, they weren’t delivering close enough to make it cost effective for me, so it fell off my radar.  In January, they had a boneless, skinless chicken breast and a hickory smoked bacon event that delivered to my area, but I missed out on ordering before it sold out.  Earlier this month, I found out they were having a seafood event.  We love seafood, and they were offering Frozen Alaskan caught Sockeye Salmon Fillets, Frozen Alaskan True Cod Fillets, and White Shrimp.  Each was available as a 20 pound unit.  I found some friends to share the units so that I could get some of each without breaking the bank too much, plus to try it out to see how this process works and find out the quality.

It’s pretty neat how it works.  The day of pick up, they have signs to direct you in to the truck.  You pull up, show them your receipt, they load it in your car.  I wasn’t sure how big the boxes would be, so I made sure I had plenty of room in my car.  Turns out, I was fine.

The boxes of cod were a little beat up, but the fish is all fine.   It was packaged in one large bag in the box, and it seems like each fillet is about 1 pound.  The shrimp was in 2 pound bags, 10 bags total.  The salmon was vacuum sealed in approximately 2 pound fillets, and has skin on one side .

It looks great and I can’t wait to try it out!  I am planning on using some shrimp this week, then will be deciding what to make next.
