The GOODS from “C” Restaurant

Vancouver, BC | The Wild BC Spot Prawn season is set to begin again this May and C Restaurant is excited to celebrate this locally sourced and sustainable seafood item for the eighth year. On the evening of May 3, 2012, Executive Chef Robert Clark will receive C’s and Vancouver’s first Spot Prawn delivery.

C will be the only restaurant in Vancouver serving this season’s catch of Wild BC Spot Prawns on Thursday, May 3, 2012 and Friday, May 4, 2012 – days before the 6th Annual Spot Prawn Festival kicks off on Saturday, May 5, 2012. To mark the special occasion, C’s Chef du Cuisine Lee Humphries has created a Wild BC Spot Prawn menu to go with this year’s catch. Served until the end of the Spot Prawn season, this $70 six-course menu will include Spot Prawn Ceviche with crispy head and baby herb salad; Spot Prawn Sashimi with jellied consommé, shaved radish, and smoked albacore tuna.

“When I started advocating for sustainable seafood eight years ago, the joy and celebration surrounding Wild BC Spot Prawns is something I had hoped for,” explains Chef Robert Clark, “It’s been a great success working with the Wild BC Spot Prawn fishery. They are a prime model for all fisheries to follow. With support from restaurants like C, ocean-friendly seafood is starting to become the norm.”

Recognized by the David Suzuki Foundation/Seachoice program as a BEST CHOICE, the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program as GREEN, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch as a BEST CHOICE, Wild BC Spot Prawns are a great catch.  This fishery is kept sustainable by enforcing maximum trap volumes, limiting the number of licenses and the number of traps per license, funding scientific research through licensing fees, and running effective monitoring programs.  For further information, see the Wild BC Spot Prawn fishery’s website: http://wildbcspotprawns.com/

C, located at 2-1600 How Street, is open for dinner from 5pm daily. Reservations can be made by phoning the restaurant directly at 604-681-1164 or online at www.crestaurant.com. To view menus or learn more, visit www.crestaurant.com.

    I’ve been eating Spot Prawns all winter courtesy of the Prawn traps that I set in the same places the commies use starting May 3.

    Of course I don’t have Robert Clark to cook them for me but I count that as a positive-my house is warmer than the sterile C the here kitchen is cozy the wine outstanding and the company many times more interesting.
