SMOKED BUTTER SEAL RECIPE


 

SMOKED BUTTER SEAL 

RECIPE CREDIT – SIMON MATHYS, EXECUTIVE CHEF: MANITOBA

In the first episode of “The Chef’s Seal” we introduced you to Executive Chef Simon Mathys of Restaurant Manitoba and his delicious “Smoked Butter Seal” (Price : $16.00). Now we want to show you how to make this recipe at home (or at least give it the ol’ college try)!

Although the recipe does require a little effort to find the accompanying herbs and plants, it does not have a lot of cooking and is fairly easy to prepare for the whole family.

One seal loin is equal to about 5-6 portion.

INGREDIENTS – SEAL FILLET:

  • 50 g of seal fillet (each fillet should make two-three servings depending on size)
  • 3 tbsp. of butter
  • A pinch of fleur de sel

INGREDIENTS FOR DRY “DIP”:

  • 3 tbsp. Roasted buckwheat
  • A pinch of Oxalis
  • A pinch of daylily buds
  • A pinch of dried sagebrush
  • A pinch of dried calendula flowers

SMOKED BUTTER:

If you have a smoker, you can make smoked butter yourself. Just put the butter in a dish and put in the smoker for about 1 hour. Make sure the butter is melted before you add it to the seal fillet. If you do not own a smoker, you can simply melt the butter in the microwave.

PREPARATION:

  1. Sear the seal fillet in a very hot pan. Add oil before cooking the filet. It needs to be served very rare, similar to a “blue” cook on a steak. Sear the outside very well for about two minutes on each side. Let rest for 4-5 minutes. Click here for our Seal Loin Tataki Recipe and for the Recipe Video!
  2. Slice the seal fillet into very thin slices.
  3. Place the sliced seal fillet on a plate, arrange them as you see in the above photo.
  4. Place the roasted buckwheat next to the seal, followed by the remaining ingredients in the “dry dip.”
  5. Add about two tablespoons of the smoked butter over the seal meat.
  6. Finish with a pinch of fleur de sel.
  7. Serve and enjoy! At Restaurant Manitoba, Chef Simon Mathys encourages patrons to enjoy this meal with your hands, paying homage to how seal is traditionally enjoyed here in Canada. Simply grab a slice of seal with your fingers and run it through the “dry dip.” Deliciousness follows.

WEST COAST CONNECTIONS

SeaDNA Canada is Vancouver-bound for CHFA West as we bring a little bit of goodness from the East Coast to the West Coast!

This weekend (February 24 and 25) we will proudly showcase our world-class line of Omega-3 products along with our brand-new Seal Jerky.

The Canadian Health Food Association’s health show in Vancouver will see over 750 exhibitors showcase their wares to an educated and experienced crowd of health product experts.

SeaDNA will offer three products at CHFA West:

  • Our Omega-3 Seal Oil softgels
  • Our Omega-3 Lemon-Flavour Seal Oil
  • Our Chipotle, Pepper & Maple Seal Jerky

SEADNA OMEGA-3 SEAL OIL SOFTGELS

Both SeaDNA softgels and our new Lemon-Flavour Seal Oil have the same great properties and are a natural alternative to the often highly concentrated oils that promise artificially increased levels of EPA and DHA.

Why Seal Oil?

1/ Contains DPA:

DPA occurs naturally in few places: Seal Oil and a mother’s breast milk are two.  DPA intensifies the benefits of traditional Omega-3’s (DHA and EPA).

   

2/ 10 X More Effective:

The maximal stimulation of endothelial cell migration by DPA can be achieved using only 1/10 of the required EPA concentration.

3/ Easy to digest:

The mammalian molecular triglyceride structure of the seal is more easily accepted by the human body which means no “fishy burps” and optimal absorption for better results.

SEADNA LEMON- FLAVOUR OMEGA-3 SEAL OIL

More Omega-3 Every Day:

Only 1 teaspoon equals 800mg of DHA+EPA+DPA!

Even Better Absorption:

Seal oil molecules have Omega-3 fats primarily in the sn-1 and sn-3 positions as opposed to the sn-2 position of fish oil. Fats in the sn-3 position are more readily absorbed by the body. In a liquid form seal oil has been shown to promote even faster absorption, leading to greater effectiveness.

Ideal For Kids:

No capsules to swallow and easy to add to the morning juice!

Easy To Incorporate Into Your Daily Routine:

Add it to your smoothie or salad!

SeaDNA SEAL JERKY 

The great, natural benefits seal can provide can also be found in our new seal jerky, which we are excited to also offer at CHFA West.

A quick search of the Googles will tell you that a “Superfood” is defined as “a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.”

They are foods that offer something special. An extra boost from mother nature that separates it from the pack.

SeaDNA Seal Jerky is exactly this. In fact, it might just be the most nutritious jerky option on the market. Check this out:

Our smoky blend of chipotle, pepper & maple compliments the natural taste of the seal to create a high-energy, delicious jerky product that stands alone among its peers for nutrition.

SeaDNA Omega-3 Seal Oil and our natural Seal Jerky are ready to be discovered and experienced as this evolution of a Canadian tradition continues. 

SeaDNA Canada will be in Booth 1249 at the Canada Health Food Association’s West Trade Show in Vancouver on February 24th and 25th. The event takes place at the Vancouver Convention Centre West Building with the doors opening at 10 am on Saturday and Sunday.

WHY CHOOSE SEADNA LEMON-FLAVOUR SEAL OIL?

CONTAINS DPA

This rare fatty acid has superpowers and SeaDNA Seal Oil is one of the best sources of it on earth. DPA is a third Omega-3 to go along with EPA and DHA. And chances are your supplement doesn’t have it.

Science has shown DPA is ten times more efficient than EPA at helping promote arterial health (Toshie Kanayasu-Toyoda, 1996).

DPA also helps the body integrate EPA and DHA, boosting overall Omega-3 levels better than supplements that just contain EPA and DHA (Neil, 2010) (Miller, 2013). 

SeaDNA Seal Oil is different from traditional fish based Omega supplements in many ways. DPA is a big part of that and the contrast continues at the molecular level.

Learn more about the differences between seal oil and fish oil.

 

RAPID ABSORPTION 

This may be a little sciencey but it has to do with the location of the triglyceride molecules. For a better description, we turn to Dr. Evan Lewis who has shown seal oil has benefits for athletes through scientific study. He explains here why he chose to use seal oil in an excerpt from that study.

Seal oil was chosen as the source of experimental N-3 supplement for this study because mammalian (seal) triacylglycerol molecules have N-3 PUFA fats primarily in the sn-1 and sn-3 positions, as opposed to the sn-2 position of fish oil N-3 PUFA [1516]. Fats in the sn-3 position are preferentially cleaved by sublingual lipases, and the sn-1 fat is cleaved in the small intestine, while the sn-2 fatty acid is left for later esterification [1417]. These structural differences are thought to enable chylomicrons and chylomicron remnants containing mammalian N-3 PUFA to have a higher rate of clearance from the blood compared to fish oil intake [18].

In basic terms, Dr. Lewis chose seal oil because his science indicates the human body absorbs and integrates the benefits of Seal Oil faster than that of fish oils. One term in that excerpt many will be looking at is “cleaved by sublingual lipases.” This means absorption occurs under the tongue as soon as SeaDNA Lemon-Flavour Seal Oil enters your mouth. This can lead to a more efficient intake of the benefits of an Omega-3.

EASY TO DIGEST

Another benefit of seal oil is any digestion issues you may have with your supplement should be a thing of the past. This is a purified, natural Omega-3 oil. It is not concentrated or messed with. It is also mammal to mammal integration so our bodies naturally deal with seal oil well. So you can say goodbye to those familiar but unwelcome burps.

NATURAL & CANADIAN

Another clear reason to look at making the switch to SeaDNA Seal Oil is we, as Canadians, don’t need to look far for proof of the healthy properties seal oil can provide. How did folks in the remote North or Atlantic Coast without access to steady supplies of fruits and vegetables survive and thrive for generations? The seal and its nutritional benefits is a critical reason how.

When it comes down to it, we all need Omega-3’s in our diet, no matter how old we are. We strongly believe seal oil is your best Omega-3 option and our new lemon-flavour is the best tasting Omega-3 supplement you have ever tried.

SeaDNA Omega-3 Lemon-Flavour Seal Oil: Natural, Unique, Pure and Canadian and your most complete Omega-3 option for the entire family.
