Fishing for Mackerel at Indian Point. Sadly this wasn’t one that we caught. However, we did catch one later but the camera battery had died by then.

Dinner on the Deck

Last Wednesday, Cameron and I realized that we’d been together for 5 years! We’ve lived together for 4 years and 2 months of that and have so far managed 9 months of marriage (Cameron has just told me it feels like 9 years – charming!) Thinking this quite an achievement (and a good excuse) we decided we’d cook something special for dinner at the weekend.

I love Tapas and vote for it for any special occasion dinner. However, Cameron wanted lobster especially since they are ridiculously cheap at the moment only $4.99 per lb (approx £3 per lobster). We decided to combine the two and settled on a dinner of lobster with melted coriander (or cilantro in Canada) butter, chorizo fried in red wine, tumeric infused rice and peas and fresh crusty bread from the farmer’s market.



All washed down with a bottle of wine or two…. Yummy!

Lobster is Canada’s most valuable seafood export, contributing as much as $1 billion in export sales.

In Canada, lobster is harvested and processed throughout the Atlantic provinces (Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island) and Quebec. Landings peak twice a year, once in the period from April to June when the spring season opens, and then again in December after the winter fishery opens in southwestern Nova Scotia.

Flicking through my photographs the other day I came across the pics we’d taken of our very own lobsters. The two that we cooked for new year. Read the rest of this entry »
