Types of Seafood Pates and Rillettes
We offer several types of seafood pates and rillettes, including crab, salmon, lobster, trout pate, and fish pate. Each offers a different flavor profile and texture, and unique and luxurious ingredient combinations.
One of our most popular offerings includes salmon pate and crab rillettes. The sweet crab and lobster meat is chopped and then cooked with butter, cream, and shallots, all perfectly seasoned with sea salt, pepper, and garlic. Pates and rillettes are both delectable spreads, but they differ significantly in texture, ingredients, and preparation. While pates boast a smooth and creamy consistency, achieved by finely blending various ingredients into a homogeneous paste, rillettes offer a coarse and shredded texture. The meat is cooked until tender enough to be easily shredded, then mixed with some of its fat, creating a rich and flavorful spread.
Buy seafood pate if you’re looking for a smoother spread and go for rillettes if you want a more textured consistency.
