    this grilled halibut was so good it barely made it to the plate...the rack is cheating i guess but for a guy who likes to drink and grill its just so easy...the indentations dont change the flavor but it does make the fillet look like its been sitting in a lawn chair for too long

    hard to compare cost of crap food vs quality food, its more worthwhile to compare quality to other quality and just rest on the fact that you are eating FOOD not "food".

    talapia is good, tried some ak halibut about a month or so ago and that was real good too. scup porgy is similar to talapia but more tender and slight bit more flavor imho.

    @HellsWindStaff for me there is nothing more satisfying than preparing and cooking a decent meal.
    Knowing exactly what's in my meals is important to me and if it costs a little more then so be it.

    As an example a chicken that's had a good life and eaten well makes a far superior meal.
    Keep it up especially if you've felt good for it.

    Living not far from one of the biggest populations of Gujarti's in the UK has it's benefits.
    Pickled chillies and ginger all done in a sweetened rice wine vinegar and Mrs PP's made a roulade.
    When you round next @Ruta, tomorrow was that??

    Lemon pepper garlic cod. Was pretty good! Very healthy!

    My only complaint is that lemon pepper garlic butter is a kind of light seasoning/marinade and cod is not really the greatest fish imo, should of done it with something that would of had a bit more flavor

    But that's a lb of cod and 376 calories, 96 grams of protein :rockon: the health benefit is the real keeper regarding cooking yourself and plus it's rewarding and all that making something good. I'm getting fished out gonna have to go to chicken for a bit soon

    I have some good ancho chile maybe I'll add that to my other two fillets before I eat...

    This is some Canadian Walleye. Really good fish never had it before kinda like salmon.

    The seasoning has been my go to for fish I wanna taste the fish. Lemon juice, then chili and lime seasoning, then slightly less lemon pepper seasoning, and then even less ancho habanero(much less here). It really packs a punch in terms of flavor but Is refreshing and not overbearing on taste buds and let's the fish shine. Did catfish like this the other day and it also was quite good.

    This was awesome. Salmon was on sale :D

    It's the same stuff I put on the cod above but with some olive oil - this was much much much better than the cod

    A scallop crudo for the Klingon cookbook I'm working on. Made with sweet hard cider, garlic, shallots, opal apples, salt, pepper, lavender, garnished with lemon zest, lime zest, and Sriracha.

    Smoking some candied salmon all day, hopefully it comes out good...first time. I should've sliced some thinner pieces though ... hindsight.

    This is the simplest, straightforward recipe I found online. I've had it from a friend in Canada, and he said his recipe is pretty much exactly the same.

    http://honest-food.net/salmon-candy-recipe/

    I used half maple syrup, half honey mixture. Also you could easily substitute cannabis honey as well...perhaps leave that for the last coating during the cooling process.

    It's tasty, if and only if you like salt cured salmon :)

    I like mine sweeter, so next time I think I'll go for a heavier ratio of sugar to salt on the curing stage. Then again, I left mine in the cure for about 1hr15min.
