Halibut Burgers Recipe

I get a delivery of seafood once per week from Real Good Fish, and for two weeks in a row, it’s been halibut. Rather than just cook the filets, I decided to go in a different direction, burgers. Sometimes I’m in the mood for a burger even if it’s not […]

Miyagi Oyster Mushroom Bisque Recipe

A few weeks ago I received a dozen and a half miyagi oysters from Real Good Fish as part of my my seafood subscription. Because miyagi oysters are delicate and small, I generally just serve them on the half shell, but this time I decided to make bisque. Bisque is […]

Easy Shrimp Curry Recipe

Here’s one of my strategies for dinner in a hurry–tweak a classic dish by loading it up with vegetables and creating a one pot meal. Recently I worked on a shrimp and feta recipe, it started out very much the same as many other recipes, but I added lots of fresh fennel. […]

Fish with Olives and Leeks Recipe

Recently I got a delivery of Pacific Grenadier from Real Good Fish. Grenadier has the unfortunate reputation as a “junk fish” because it’s by catch–caught unintentionally by fisherman going after black cod. It’s a deep water fish, with a long body and a very thin tail. Pacific Grenadier has a delicate texture […]

Shrimp & Feta Recipe

I have made many versions of shrimp and feta over the years and maybe you have too. Sweet shrimp and salty feta is such a great combination and while you really don’t need a recipe to make it, this one is a particular favorite. I’ve simplified the steps—no need to […]

Honey Soy Ginger Black Cod Recipe

Black cod is probably my most favorite fish because it is so luscious. It’s also really easy to cook. It doesn’t need the kid glove treatment that halibut requires. It’s so moist it’s hard to overcook. I usually cook it with miso, but recently I was looking for another idea […]

Curry Halibut Recipe and GIVEAWAY!

Two years ago I took a trip to Alaska that I will never forget. I met wonderful chefs and fishermen. I flew over glaciers and enjoyed the wilderness. And I went fishing. Our little boat caught a ridiculous number of halibut. Not long after my trip I received pounds of […]

Halibut Roasted in Parchment Recipe

Recently Real Good Fish reached out to me to see if I would try their services and share my experiences. I was already considering subscribing and am very happy to tell you about them. Real Good Fish is like a subscription based community-supported agriculture program (CSA) where you get a […]

Crab Omelet Recipe

I can’t seem to get enough crab this season. Dungeness crab is only about $7 a pound or so at local markets. I think I’m starting to get better at removing it from the shells; it’s a tedious job but worth the effort. Rather than dousing it in drawn butter, […]

Slow Roasted Alaska Halibut with Fennel & Tomatoes Recipe

When I was growing up we had a second freezer that I swear was packed full of halibut. My father got it somewhere and we ate it for what seemed like years. I remember that it was dry, tough and somewhat stringy. Was it terribly freezer burned? Only recently my […]

Alaska Seafood Moqueca Recipe

I’m just back from the incredibly wild and unspoiled state of Alaska. I was on the trip with food writers and chefs as well as a seafood importer. I got a chance to talk with a lot of people involved with Alaska seafood including a biologist, a conservationist, a manager […]
