M~Ocean Fennel Pollen Blend from Pollen Ranch
Aromatic Fennel Pollen Spice Blend from California
Seven simple ingredients blended together create this unforgettable spice blend. M~Ocean Fennel Pollen Blend is a fragrant blend of handpicked fennel pollen with almond powder, orange peel, herbs and spices.
Slightly spicy with hints of citrus and highly aromatic bursts of fennel pollen, M~Ocean is the perfect fish and seafood blend. We love to use it as a dry rub for white fish such as halibut or striped sea bass, or for shrimp and scallops. Try marinating steaks of salmon in M~Ocean, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper prior to grilling. We've even sprinkled a bit of M~Ocean in aioli and then served it alongside crab or fish cakes. You may also wish to try Pollen Ranch's Dill Pollen, which is also great for all kinds of seafood.
Ingredients: fennel pollen, almond powder, parsley, orange peel, fleur de sel, black pepper, cayenne.

About the Producer:
After reading a food article by Peggy Knickerbocker describing fennel pollen as "the spice that angels sprinkle on their wings," David Rebb Firman, founder of Pollen Ranch and lover of said spice, hatched an idea to start a business collecting wild fennel pollen from around Northern California. David, who learned of pollen collection from his grandmother, knew exactly where to find beautiful fennel growing wild, how to collect it, store it, clean it and extract its essence. So he began to do just that. Pollen Ranch harvests wild fennel pollen from plants all over Napa, Solano and Sonoma Counties to use in the pollen blends. Their dill pollen is collected from plants in the Imperial Valley of Southern California. Currently, Pollen Ranch is the largest producer of wildcrafted pure fennel pollen, and the world's first supplier of dill pollen.
