Nutrition in its Purest Form:
As we’re sure you already know, most of our country’s food is grown using toxic chemicals, processed at high temperatures, irradiated or pasteurized to make sure no living organisms survive(!), and then “fortified” with ingredients that most of us can’t pronounce. In the process, much of the nutrients and enzymes that our bodies crave are lost, or at least severely compromised.

 

 

They’re here to assure you that it doesn’t have to be that way. Their goal is to provide their customers with a great selection of pure, unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods. Their “Nutrition in its Purest Form” mantra is something they take very seriously.

Organic:
Their company owns and operates a USDA-certified organic packaging facility in Bend Oregon. They purchase raw ingredients which they package in consumer-size packages and sell directly to the public. They pride themselves on having a very rapid inventory turnover, which ensures that their customers receive the freshest possible products. Their organic products are certified by Oregon Tilth.

Raw:
They start with the purest ingredients from 5 continents. Their ingredients come from farmers and processors, who all share our contempt for processed foods and have made the investment in, and commitment to, low temperature drying processes. The results is nutrient-dense foods with their enzymatic life force intact.

Kosher:
All of heir Live Superfoods products are kosher certified. Even if your diet isn’t kosher, you may still appreciate that their foods, facility and processes have undergone the scrutiny of kosher inspectors. Their kosher products are certified by Earth Kosher.

Vegan:
No animal flesh or fats are used in the production of their products.

Gluten-Free:
All Live Superfoods products are gluten-free and many of their third party products are too.

 

 

Wild Harvested:

Raw Organic Goji Berries

 

Eco-Friendly:
100% of their shipping cartons and packaging materials are eco-friendly. They start with recyclable cartons that they assemble using recyclable paper tape.

Steamed Snapper in Oyster Sauce

Steamed Snapper 2

Steamed Snapper in Oyster Sauce

 

Steamed Snapper 3The word fish translated in Chinese means wealth and prosperity, Steamed Snapper or whole fish is always served during Lunar New Year.  This dish is served as part of a shared meal. Traditionally, oyster sauce is made by slowly simmering oysters in water until the juices caramelize into a thick, brown, intensely flavorful sauce. Today, shortcuts have been made to create a similar flavor more quickly and for less money. Oyster sauces today are usually made with a base of sugar and salt and thickened with cornstarch. Oyster extracts or essences are then used to give flavor to the base sauce.

In this recipe we use fresh oysters with no thickeners to create the same flavor without using the added sugars or starches needed to achieve its consistency.

Steamed Snapper Ingredients:

2 Large Snapper Fish Fillets (Approx 16 0z)
4 Large Freshly Shucked Oysters (Sliced in quarters)
One Bunch Green Onions (finely diced)
¼ Cup Grated Ginger
¼ Cup Diced Ginger (finely diced)
6 Cloves of Garlic (finely diced)
2 Fresh Red Jalapeno Peppers (finely diced)
1 Cup Oyster Mushrooms ( Chopped )
1 Tbs Sesame or Coconut Oil
1 Tbs Bottled Fish Sauce
2 Tbs Bottled Oyster Sauce
½ Cup Water

Preparing the Oyster Sauce;

In a saucepan heat the oil and add half of the Red Peppers, Onions and Diced Ginger and cook until the onions are glazed. Add the quartered Oysters and the Mushrooms and water. Cook for approximately 5 to 8 minutes then and add the fish sauce and the oyster sauce and simmer until the mixture reaches a consistency to coat a spoon evenly.

Preparing the Steamed Snapper;

In a separate deep pan bring enough water to a boil to poach the fillets and cook until the Steamed Snapper hardens and does not fall apart. (Approx 4 Minutes )

Plating the Steamed Snapper;

Place enough oyster sauce on the serving dish to serve as a bed making sure to collect as much of the Oysters and Vegetables as possible. Save the remaining sauce for coating the Steamed Snapper after plating. Place the Steamed Snapper on top of the sauce and coat evenly with the remaining sauce mixture. Garnish with Cilantro, Green Onions and Grated Ginger as well as some uncooked Red Peppers for color.
