We went to Costco at 10:00 so Suzette could shop for the Greenhouse Bistro and Bakery and Santa Rosa. While we were walking around shopping, we saw there was a Seafood Festival, so we bought a fresh halibut steak for dinner ($9.99/lb.) and a Dungeness crab ($6.99/lb.) for Sunday brunch.
After we rode to Rio Bravo and back on the tandem, at around 7:00 Suzette salt and peppered the halibut and made incisions and stuck pads of butter into them and squeezed lemon on it and grilled it while we steamed asparagus and sautéed cubed PPI baked potatoes, chopped onion, garlic, capers and sundried tomatoes in a skillet with 2-3 Tbsps. of butter.
When the fish was finished grilling we plated the halibut, asparagus and potatoes on plates and poured glasses of PPI La Ferme Julien Blanc.
The fish was incredibly fresh and delicious with a squeeze of lemon on it. It was hard to decide which was a better combination: the sundried tomato with the steamed asparagus or the halibut and pieces of fried potato. I could not help remembering the Fish and Chips I ate at Tofino, B.C. with Willy a couple of years ago at a restaurant overlooking the fishing harbor watching boats coming through the fog into harbor with their freshly caught halibut.
