My brother and I who spent a few seasons deckhanding together would ceremoniously eat the first prawns of the season raw before then cooking up a feast. Often we ate them steamed or pan fried with garlic butter (cook gently just until opaque and immediately remove from heat so they don’t over cook) but after we’d had our fill, it was time to get creative. I can’t count the number of recipes we tried over the years but it was a lot! Today I’m sharing two recipes, Spot Prawns In Fennel Tomato Broth and simple Grilled Prawns.

With the weather cold, I’m gravitating to warm spices and comforting soups. This recipe starts with a versatile and easy homemade curry paste and is finished with coconut milk, stock and fish sauce for authentic south Asian flavour. The snapper is added minutes before serving and poured over a bowl of rice noodles and vegetable garnishes. Thick and rich, full of bright spice and herbal aromas, this soup is a comforting and satisfying meal in a bowl.

Oyster stew is a traditional dish to have on Christmas Eve….on the East Coast of North America. I think it’s a great tradition and that we should adopt it here on the West Coast because we too have an abundance of these fresh and delicious […]
