West Coast treats for a guest from Down East
Guests are always a great excuse to splurge.
Since our company came all the way from the Atlantic side of the country, it seemed like a good idea to serve him fish from our side, the Pacific. The first of this season's fresh halibut was in the shops, so that was the focus of our meal. Polenta with mushroom sauce, perfect springtime asparagus and, of course, a salad complemented the plate.
We'd also had salmon lox for appies, always a treat.
I think our guest was glad he'd eaten here. And I was glad I'd had him as an excuse for such yummy treats.
