Crab Chili Rellenos


July has arrived, and that means Dungeness crab season here in the Puget Sound. I love this time of year.  Even when fishing is slow, or dead, we usually come home with fresh crab. Just remember what I’ve told you before, the key to a full crab pot is two baits.  One broadcast bait to lure the crab in, and a feeder bait to…

Buttering up the shrimp


Today was one of only two scheduled days we can catch spot prawns here in the Seattle area this year.   As it turns out, the weather decided to make it challenging, with wind and rain making pulling shrimp pots a chore.  But it wasn’t enough of a challenge for me.  That’s why I “decided” to neglect to hook the…

Crab Scotch Eggs


Apparently Boxers British Pub in New York City is gone now.  According to an internet search, the only place in New York called Boxers these days is a gay sports bar.   The place I used to go to with that name had a somewhat different theme. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Boxers was a cool British…

Crab Gravy over Biscuits


It was on one of those stormy weekends we had back in September. For the first time in months, I wasn’t out the door early with my boat boots on. Even though I was disappointed that I was missing another shot at the coho run in the Sound, I was making lemonade of the situation by relaxing on my couch…

The Chinese food that many of us are most familiar with, delicious as it is, isn’t exactly authentic Chinese. If you were going out to eat in China, you’d be hard pressed to find General Tsao’s chicken, chop suey, or sweet & sour pork. I got a good lesson in this some years ago when I lived in New York…

Crab Focaccia Bread


Aack!!  I’m missing the beginning of Dungeness crab season. I know, I know, you guys are used to me being on the cusp, cutting edge, the very tip-of-the-spear of Pacific Northwest seafood acquisition. (please play stirring, operatic music while reading that line of bullshit) However, as I write this, my boat is parked out of the water, my crab traps are…

Shrimp Pot Stickers


I’m a total sucker for Asian dumplings. Gyoza, Lumpia, Dim Sum, Soup Dumplings, Bao …. I love them all. If I’m eating at an Asian restaurant, You can count on me ordering some sort of dumpling appetizer at least. On that note, if we are ever socializing, and you hear me refer to your lady as “dumpling” I suggest you…

Grilled Seafood Skewers


Wow, we just went from a slow crawl to a full sprint with the fishing opportunities. In the last week, ling cod, halibut, and spot prawn seasons all opened around here. I’ve been so busy fishing, nay, catching, and cooking said catch; I haven’t had a chance to do any writing.
