Seven simple ingredients blended together create this unforgettable spice blend. Hand collected wild Californian fennel pollen, almond, parsley, orange peel, Fleur de Sel, black pepper and cayenne are included in Pollen Ranch's M~Ocean Spice Blend.
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 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 - great for all seafood as well.

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 the said spice, hatched an idea to start a business collecting wild fennel pollen from Northern California. David, who learned of pollen collection from his grandmother Mina, 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 their pollen blends. Their dill pollen is collected from plants in Imperial Valley down in Southern California. Currently, Pollen Ranch is now the largest producer of wild-crafted pure fennel pollen, and the world's first supplier of dill pollen.
