Hello Everyone! It's another beautiful week in Olympia - sunshine and summertime!  At this point we're pretty much exclusively using our outdoor grill for cooking... making extras of our proteins to carry us through the next day's lunch and such. Between the grill, our weekly local veggie box, and the rotating pitchers of sun tea on our patio we are fully invested in summertime eating. So good!  Things are rolling just as nicely in the fresh local seafood pipeline - we're in the prime of wild salmon season and we regularly have our pick of all of our fresh favorites...

Everything you need to know about... Halibut 2017

Everything you need to know about... Halibut 2017

Halibut is a peculiar fish with a peculiar name. The word "halibut" comes from a combination of the words "haly" (meaning "holy") and "butt" (meaning "flat fish" ?) but the whole thing together is sort of begging for a middle school joke to be made. Combine that with a very odd smashy-face appearance and it seems to me that if it wasn't for its exceptional culinary qualities halibut would be the joke of the 7 Seas. Fortunately for halibut, it's delicious! Mild in flavor, firm in texture... it's a favorite of many a seafood fan. Alaskan halibut are managed and...

All the Fishy News! March 29, 2017

Hello Everyone! Did we all see the little clip about our fair Olympia on King5 this morning? I was happy to see that it featured one of our new favorite places to visit - the 222 Market building and our shellfish growing friends at Chelsea Farms. We really love having such an excellent oyster bar so close to us, and Pantry (thanks for wearing our shirt, Kevin!), Fluerae and Sofie's Scoops (Sailor's favorite!) are becoming great regular places to find amazing things, too. The only place we haven't actually purchased something from is the bone broth spot - if you've had...

All the Fishy News : March 22, 2017

Hello Everyone!Spring is finally here, hurray! This week marks the start of what we like to call our "Busy Season" although we won't notice much of a change until the weather gets substantially better. There is something about sunshine and seafood that appeals to us all! Regardless, we're launching the start of a rotation of a few grab-and-go items for a quick lunch or side dish and beginning with a popular one from last year - our Seafood Pasta Salad. It's our Featured Fish this week as well as our recipe, and we know you're going to love it! That...

All the Fishy News :  March 15, 2017

Hello Everyone!Well it's day 15 at my house and we're feeling like champions who are juuuust about to crest the top of the hill - once a year we like to wrest back control from the it's-in-everything beastie known as "sugar" and revisit an eating strategy called Whole 30. It's tons of fun (insert sarcasm) because you cut not only sugar, but alcohol, dairy, wheat, soy and even legumes from your diet for 30 days straight. 30 days never seems like that long until you actually start, at which point it becomes an eternity. It is, however, completely lovely to...
