Paleo Fish and Chips

Recipes posted a year ago:

I mentioned having fish for dinner and so my daughter thought we should try some fried fish as she heard my grandfather used to fry fish all the time.  We actually didn’t cook up any “chips”, but you can find the recipe for sweet potato fries by clicking on this link.  I took some sweet relish and mixed it in homemade mayo and it turned out great for dipping (similar to tartar sauce)! Kids will enjoy helping with this one and will love the final result!

Lemon Garlic and Ginger Shrimp

Recipes posted a year ago:

The other night, I had elk steaks thawed out to go on the grill, and Karen had picked up a pound of pre-cooked shrimp from our local seafood market.  Since steak and shrimp go together so well, I decided to throw this together to compliment the steaks.  The prep and cooking time are almost nothing since the shrimp are already cooked – so you can get the ingredients ready and quickly cook them while your steaks are “resting” after coming off the grill.

Halibut with Coconut and Macadamia Nut Crust

Recipes posted a year ago:

We live close to a fresh seafood store.  My kids refuse to go inside because it “smells like fish.”  Oh, but is so great to go in and choose some wild caught fish to bring home for dinner.  Today I chose some halibut and decided to top it with a macadamia nut and coconut mixture with a pat of coconut butter.  Hawaiian-inspired meal with prep time start to finish in less than 30 minutes!

Grilled Salmon with Hazelnuts

Recipes posted a year ago:

You gotta love the Pacific Northwest for the seafood!  I decided to cook a Kokanee that Casey caught last summer with my Uncle John.  I have always thought it interesting that John, who has an incredible passion for fishing, doesn’t even like to eat fish unless it is smoked.  He is the master of cooking it to perfection in his smokehouse!  He will also share the fresh caught with friends and family.  I remember once going fishing with Uncle John.   I was pretty proud of what I came home with!  Man.. I wish I still had those boots 🙂

And just for fun I had to throw in this picture of my Grandpa Don.  He is pretty proud of these little fish and those are some great boots too!

Creamy Coconut Shrimp

Recipes (and info) posted a year ago:

Not too far from us there is a great seafood store.  I love to buy my Old Bay seasoning there.  They usually have a great selection of wild caught seafood. My girls love to look at the live clams.  Stopping in the other day I saw some shrimp and decided to grab some.  I made up this recipe really quick and it was a delicious meal combined with a salad, or it could even be the “surf” in your “surf and turf” meal.

Wine & Herb Grilled Salmon

I made this recipe up years ago for a camping trip with extended family, and then sort of forgot about it over time.  Karen’s mom, however, didn’t – because it was the only time Karen’s dad actually ate fish, and then asked for seconds.  So when the family was recently planning a birthday party for Karen’s brother, I was asked if I could do “that recipe” again.  The only problem: I never wrote it down the first time.

After some head scratching, and a little experimentation, I was able to recreate the original recipe.  And when cooked over an open fire or wood-burning grill, it is just as good as I remembered it from years ago.

Salmon with Blueberry Sauce

Recipe posted a year ago: Wasabi Teriyaki Sauce

My dad recently went on a salmon fishing trip off the coast of Vancouver Island.  He brought home so much salmon!  The ironic thing is he doesn’t like seafood (huge score for us!).  Well, let me say that he did eat salmon a few years back at a campout when Casey cooked it up on an open campfire.  To get my dad to eat seafood is a huge undertaking (he even went back for seconds), so that shows you what a great cook Casey is!

I was also able to pick some fresh blueberries and so had an idea about a blueberry sauce over salmon.  Let me say that this is the best combination EVER!!  I’m just not sure if it gets any better than this.
