Saturday's Bounty!

I'm really coming to love our local farmer's markets.  And it still amazes me that the vendors and farms that were not organic had so few, if any buyers! I feel change brewing!

Saturday's booty consisted of:

1) Organic Ugly soft tomatoes (that made a terrific pasta sauce)!
2) Organic Celery
3) Organic Purple kale
4) Organic Cauliflower
5) Fresh - never been frozen wild Alaskan Halibut.

5-12-12 Farmer's Market's Bounty!

Since the only real fish I've ever indulged comes from a frozen bag at Costco. And the price of this 1 piece of halibut was probably as much as I've spent on the entire bag at Costco. But holy crap, did it taste amazing. Never have my hands cooked a fillet of fish of that quality!

I salted and peppered the fish and squirted some lime juice on it, and fried it up with some butter.

Then I put a cilantro pesto lime butter over it. Roasted some broccoli at high temperature for about 15 minutes and voila! A really amazing dinner!


1 bunch cilantro
3 cloves garlic
1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 c. pine nuts (or walnuts)
Wash cilantro, dry. Mix ingredients in food processor until smooth.

I melted down the pesto and added lime and butter to the mix!
