Halibut Scraps

Grilled halibut fillet tacos with fresh mango salsa (made by daughter outlaw) the first night. Clam and halibut chowder the next. All enjoyed very much. Thank you for all the fun responses!

Halibut Scraps

My kids just gave me the scraps/trimmings from the first halibut (30 inches) catch of the season. Any ideas on what to do with these bits? Any chowder, soup, stew or ... recipes?

Pasta Pomodoro bogo pizza

Take-out today only. Nicely browned crust is thin and chewy. The pollo e pesto with bacon and sausage, mushroom and onion are both really good.

Good and spicy food with friendly service from the owner and his family. Three chutneys served near the salad: coconut, mint and tomato. My friend loved the tandoori chicken drumsticks - not dried out.
