What's In Season: November Edition

As November rolls in and the leaves continue to fall, it's time to embrace the seasonal changes not only in the weather but also on our plates. This month, we have a delightful seafood duo that's stealing the spotlight – clams and hake. These two ingredients are at their peak in November, offering a burst of flavour and freshness that's perfect for autumn dining.


Clams are harvested during the colder months, and November marks the start of their season.

One of the best things about clams is their versatility. You can enjoy them steamed, grilled, in chowders, or as part of a seafood pasta. Their tender meat pairs wonderfully with a variety of ingredients, from garlic and white wine to tomatoes and fresh herbs.

For those who enjoy a bit of adventure in the kitchen, try your hand at making classic dishes like linguine with white clam sauce or New England clam chowder. You can also get creative with new recipes that incorporate these delectable bivalves.

Hake, a delicate and flaky white fish, is another star of the November season. It's a member of the cod family and is known for its mild, slightly sweet taste. Hake is abundant in colder waters, and the fish are at their prime during this time of year.

One of the key advantages of hake is its versatility and adaptability to various cooking methods. You can bake it, pan-sear it, broil it, or grill it to perfection. Its delicate flavour allows it to pair beautifully with a range of seasonings, from lemon and dill to garlic and butter.

Hake is an excellent choice for those who prefer a lighter, milder fish flavour. It's also a sustainable seafood option, making it a responsible choice for eco-conscious consumers.

Whether you're a seafood enthusiast or just looking to add variety to your meals, November's seasonal offerings of clams and hake provide a fantastic opportunity to explore new flavours and culinary adventures. Head to your local seafood market or a nearby restaurant that specializes in fresh, seasonal dishes to savour the best of what this month has to offer. Enjoy the delightful taste of clams and hake while they are at their seasonal peak.
