Well let me start this post off with explaining why this recipe is a bit late…. Saskatchewan was slammed with a heat and humidity wave all of last week and the last place I wanted to be was inside, let alone my kitchen (my house was 27°C in the evening…. I don’t even want to know what the humidity levels were inside) and to start boiling a hot pot of soup….Nope – no thanks! Originally, I was hoping to do some walleye fishing and use some local fish, but then got rained out on that plan. Because of the rain, I headed to the grocery store to buy some seafood and was happy that I found some mussels. To continue the adventure, when I got home I opened the package and was hit with the nasty smell of seafood gone bad – wowza, talk about an awful smell. Note to others: if the mussels are even SLIGHTLY open, they have spoiled! So much for mussels in the soup. I was a bit sad too because I knew their beautiful shells would add an extra dimension to the plating. But in good news, the heat cooled off thanks to buckets of rain and I was able to make the soup. So now that it’s here, let’s get to this recipe… Continue reading

Living in Vancouver and having so much great seafood around, I haven’t quite taken advantage of all the fresh local goods, but I changed that recently and decided to cook some fresh mussels! Other than a little hard work scrubbing and debearding all the mussels, they are very simple to cook. Check out the recipe below.

On another recent adventure with the Loveable Douchebag (don’t worry, he’s approved this name) we decided to venture into the world of lobster for numerous reasons (i.e. I have been scared to make lobster since my last memory is my mom bringing some home from Halifax and hearing them scream to their death as they are lower into a death boil, lobsters tend to be expensive, the LD eats lots of lobster but has never cooked one), so it was off to the world of lobsters!!

Sorry for the slacking on the blogging, I’ve been busy working looong days, but here I am with a continuation of the last post. This was my first experience grilling salmon on the barbecue so I was a little concerned about it turning out properly, but I let my instincts guide me and it was delish!
One of my favorite foods has to be fish – whether that’s because of my father’s fishing accomplishments or just because it tastes awesome – I just love it! Salmon and walleye are my two favorite fish to eat. On a recent trip to Costco, I convinced my mom to buy a fresh salmon steak so Bob & I could have a cook off. Both were delicious, mine was on the light, fresh tasting side with Bob’s tasting sweet and rich with hidden flavors of candied salmon. To those inexperienced chefs out there in the blog world, don’t fear salmon, it’s relatively hard to screw up and most people love it!
