Product Information

PRODUCT INFO

Yes, squabs are young pigeons (called pigeonneaux in French). But this noble bird is too often dismissed because it shares a name with the pests we see in metropolitan areas. Squab raised for human consumption are brought up on farms, as they have been in the Middle East and Asia for ages (squab were among the first birds domesticated). This practice has survived since antiquity because of these birds’ delicious flavor.

Squab is dark-meated, tender, high in protein, and low in fat.  They're delicious sauteed, roasted or grilled. These birds are already dressed, saving you the hassle.

STORAGE

Store squabs frozen until you need them, then defrost completely before cooking.

RECIPES & TIPS

Each squab is just the right size for a hearty single serving. They can be roasted whole or split in half through the breast bone and grilled.

Squab meat is best cooked no further than medium-rare, and pairs well with flavors like cinnamon, juniper berries, hazelnuts, peaches, wine vinegar, olives, garlic and rosemary. It’s often served with rice.
