We originally planned filet mignon until my mom mentioned that she had gotten a veal chop from the same butcher a few weeks ago and liked it but was nervous cooking it because she’d never done it before—something like that would have been something my father would have cooked. So I asked if they had any and he brought out a big rack of veal and cut three chops for me on the spot. I knew she would not have had the recipe I posted above.

I’d upload some except the site I used to use started causing problems (Photobucket) and I haven’t gotten around to signing up for another one. On the one forum where I routinely post photos, I access the site through the Tapatalk app when I want to post a photo because Tapatalk will host the photo.

no dunkins listed :rant:

I've had Fractured Prune and they are truly awesome.  About 15 years ago, we had a  donut taste-off in our office.  I brought the Dunkins, a colleague brought some from a place I think around Ballston, and another colleague brought in fresh fractured prune.  I forget if Astro was around, but they did not have the place near our office at the time.  Fractured Prune blew everyone away.

One thing we know for sure is that shortage of not they will raise the prices to take advantage of us.

Beef prices have already risen significantly. The strips that were 7.99/lb a month or two ago at Wegmans have been around 11.99/lb for the past month or so.

took the family out to the capital grille last night for a graduation celebration dinner for my son. Overall it was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Fantastic service, and steak (Kona coffee crusted NY strip), and they went out of their way to celebrate the graduation with a decorated table and a special desert on the house. If you are looking for an upscale place for a special occasion, CG is hard to beat.

Kona crusted strip sounds like gold leaf sacher torte, but with a steak.  I must have this. 

And congrats  :D

My sister adores the Capitol Grille in Rhode Island, I’ve yet to go there but it’s on my list. And congrats to you for getting one to the finish line, or at least one of the finish lines :lol:

We have some fresh halibut from Maine caught earlier this week and I grilled a pound of it using the following recipe, except I didn’t turn it because it was skin-on. Very good, I would make this again:

Thanks, we still have a pound or two of scallops in the freezer and may try that. Ms1995hoo also wants to try this recipe for scalloped scallops: https://downeastdayboat.com/recipe/scalloped-scallops/

When we were in Alaska we had halibut cheeks, simply sautéed in butter. I haven't seen them locally.

We have some fresh hake. Any good ideas for how to cook it? No stew or boiling water, please—the kitchen gets the afternoon sun.

Seems like a waste of a fish, just to eat the cheeks. Not much flesh there.

Fish and chips, made with either halibut or alaskan cod are amazing as well.

Blacken would be good if you like spicy.  Pan fry with lime juice, basil, & garlic would be easy and taste good.  Try This

I made one of my favorite recipes last night - shrimp ceviche. So easy and so good.

Here's my recipe:
1. Boil one pound of raw shelled shrimp for one minute, immediately transfer to an ice bath after 1 minute to stop the cooking
2. Chop the shrimp into 2-3 pieces each and add to a large bowl
3. Add
- 1 cup of chopped cilantro,
- 2 diced avocados,
- 1 cup of diced grape or cherry tomatoes,
- 1 cup of diced white onion rinsed in a strainer,
- 1 serrano chili pepper, diced, with seeds,
- salt / pepper to taste,
- 2 limes worth fresh squeezed lime juice,

Stir together to mix, put in the fridge for at least a few hours before serving, serve with blue corn tortilla chips

Last weekend we were at Lowe's and I picked up a carbon-steel griddle for use on the grill. Tried it for the first time tonight with a pound of Maine halibut I cut into thirds. It worked great. Brushed the fish with olive oil, seasoned it with salt and pepper, got the griddle ripping hot, and cooked the fish six minutes per side plus 30 seconds on the other two sides just to sear them. Leftover yellow rice reheated in the microwave, some Maine salsa for the fish, and a bottle of Fox Meadow wine purchased at the winery today (we brought home 24 bottles; 23 remain). Excellent dinner to conclude a very nice day—when has it ever been this cool in July? Plus I got the griddle put away and the grill covered just before the rain.

I've been using a couple of the cast iron skillets I overhauled on the grill lately.  Last night had 3 salmon filets, simple sprinkled with Penzey's Fox Point seasoning and lightly brushed with olive oil.  Done in 10 minutes, excellent.
