This year, I have endeavored to buy whole fresh salmon – enough to have 7 or 8 in the freezer. Usually, I will buy pink salmon – I somehow missed my favorite salmon this year which is CoHo.
(in the picture above, we love to serve salmon with organic garlic scape pesto which I make every [...]
This easy pan fried fresh gray cod was a lovely dinner enhanced by a tasty Tarragon Parsley White Wine Sauce. When using a white fish such as cod, halibut, or snapper just about any herb sauce will enhance the delicate flavors of the fish. (make the Tarragon Parsley White Wine Sauce first, and keep on [...]
With our fresh frozen salmon in the freezer, we had baked a lovely Coho Salmon the other night, with plenty of leftovers for salad and sandwiches the next day. As there was quite a lot left I decided to make a salmon quiche. It seems to me that just about anything will work divinely with [...]
Nothing says comfort food better than a delicious bowl of seafood chowder. Most seafood chowders traditionally use a white fish. In this dish I used all shell fish. Many chowders also use a flour to thicken their chowder…here I did not.
In our household if we use cream, I will make SCD cream – Lactose free [...]
Recently I found a new local fish store that supplies all kinds of fresh fish and shell fish – yeahhh! Today’s special was fresh West Coast Snapper fillets – they were lovely! Having found this new store, I hope to have more seafood dishes in the future.
With this recipe I kept it really simple, as [...]
It has been a while since I last did a post…we have been away on holidays. Back to our favorite Salt Spring Island for a 5 day getaway. DH shot this picture on the ferry over to the Island. It was a most lovely holiday…good food, lots of rest, great weather, hikes on the beach…I [...]
My daughter and I shared this wickedly delicious meal the other night. I have not made Bearnaise sauce in years…so good! Ideally this is a dish that pairs wonderfully with Beef Tenderloin steaks – which we had a few nights ago. Then my daughter arrived with Phillips Crab Claw Meat. It is pasteurized and fully [...]
A while back….(end of July/August?) I made my Homemade Apricot and Peach Jam – only this time, I made extra:
It is by far my most favorite jam. Regular Apricot Jam would work nicely here too. We found some beautiful Gray Cod Fillets at the market and with this Apricot/Peach glaze – it was a marriage [...]
Yes, another Pasta dish. This was absolutely to die for…seriously! If you read my blog dear readers, you do know I tend to RAVE about SCD CREAM. Whether in sweet dishes or savory, SCD CREAM is the best whipping cream ever. It lends a slightly tart taste that adds a whole new dimension to sweet [...]
This is a post on how to poach Wild Salmon and Lobster. It is also a post about Seafood Chowder. I have never made a Seafood Chowder before. Back in the day, and I am talking way back in the day, I used to make a luscious Creamy Clam Chowder. Believe me, you do not [...]
