FRESH FISH Dinner

Recipes, advice, appliances and more. Just because you might have a small galley doesn't mean you can't cook big!

if we are free and not off boating ourselves we can even pick you up and drive you there. We live overlooking the ditch just north of Seabreeze bridge rough position 29. 14.1 N/ 081.01.3W which is a popular overnight anchorage for those wanting to be the right side of the Main Street drawbridge ready for the next crack of dawn start especially if north bound Our boat is in Halifax Harbor Marina a mile south on the city side of the waterway which is a good stopover too, just 10 minutes away from our dirt home, with plenty of visitor slips usually plus all the usual facilities including fuel. West Marine used to be at the marina but for some reason best known to their bean counters moved to a new superstore about 10 minutes drive west on West International Speedway BLVD

http://www.theblacksheep.co/Menu.html is the pub website and it has 36 beers on tap today it said, many claiming to be British or Irish, although I'm not permitted to sample them these days after my stroke 2 years ago (Admiral's rules), but their coffee is good, the waitresses pretty and they carry some non alcohol beer too that I have been known to try. The lunch specials from 11am to 4pm daily are unbeatable for just $5.95 inc soda/coffees and they even have fish 'n chips on that menu with one piece of fish instead of the two on their regular $9.95 dinner menu but which luckily was special offer today for just $7.95 :D

Ralph, Don't pass on this invite from Robin and Theresa. They took us on a provisioning and dining tour last year that was exceptional!
Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Robin- Thank you for the offer. We hope to take you up on it in the near future. The menu and prices look great at The Black Sheep.

You really meet so many nice people when you're out cruising. I haven't counted the number of boat cards we have aboard. Add to that these forums, and there are people to meet almost everywhere along the coast.

I still think the best way to get a good fish dinner is to catch in the morning, clean and cook as soon as one returns ashore or to dock!
