Introducing a Trickster Co x Barnacle Foods collaboration. Barnacle had the chance to partner with Crystal Worl, co-founder of Trickster Co, to make this sweet, smoky, salty, and deeply satisfying kelp seasoning (think next-level blackened seasoning).
Together, they dreamed up this kelp-infused seasoning, inspired by the flavors and traditions of the Alaska Coast. Beachside fires and rich billowing smokehouse steam, salty sea, with a hint of sweet. For best results: coat and rub seafood, meats, or vegetables with a generous layer of seasoning and sizzle over flames or in a pan at medium-high heat.
About Trickster Co: Artists Crystal Worl, and her brother, Rico Worl, started Trickster Co. in Juneau, Alaska. Trickster Co. is an Indigenous-owned design company that strives to share the way traditionally rooted people represent themselves in a modern context. Their work represents the prestigious lineage of Northwest Coast art in a fresh, energetic, irresistible form. Crystal Worl is Tlingit Athabascan from Raven moiety, Sockeye Clan, from the Raven House.
The label depicts sockeye salmon, bears, and raven in Northwest Coast form line design that is an art form dating back some 4,000 years and has been acclaimed throughout the world as a uniquely distinctive form of design and aesthetics.
Every year Trickster Co. artist Crystal Worl goes fishing at a secret spot and brings home enough Sockeye salmon for her family (and friends). Each fish is cherished thanks to the adventure of fishing side-by-side with bears that try to steal the catch, almost being washed away in rapids, and trying to get to the best fishing spots before anyone else (bears included). The fish Crystal brings home provides for multiple households each winter.
Now, salmon has found its perfect match — Sweet & Smoky Kelp Seasoning.
