Fresh Fish

There is something to be said for fresh fish. It is amazing. Entirely unlike anything else. And what do I mean when I say "fresh"?

We spent part of early September in a little town called Ucluelet (you-clue-let), BC. What a treasure! It is perched literally at the end of the road on the west side of Vancouver Island.

The rainforest outside our cabin.

While there, we wanted to eat fish and found a local fish market called "Fishful Thinking" that proved to be amazing! Fish were brought in daily, by people out having a good day on the water and by small-time fishing boats alike. We were never sure what would be there and it was exciting to go find dinner each day!

Awesomeness CAN be created in tiny spaces.

This day, Chris chose halibut that had been swimming nearby just that morning. We made a simple salad of greens and tomatoes and a quick dressing of garlic, mayo, and water to thin it down.

The fish got garlic and pepper then into the hot pan. A fairly fast way to cook the fish until flaky but still moist.

And that was it. The boys gobbled it down. It was hands down the very best fish I have eaten in a long, long time.

And the little man agreed - amazing fish.
