Out of the 5 days we stayed in Tofino, this was truly the best day weather wise. Not a single cloud was in the sky and this was the day B and hubby finally got to experience their dream fishing trip.
Our captain was Captain Lance and “Play N Hooky II” was the boat and by the way, is one of the largest charter boats on the west coast.
Lance’s Sportfishing Adventures is an independently owned and operated fishing charter company, based in the world famous Clayoquot Sound. Thousands of migrating salmon and halibut swim through Clayoquot Sound and the waters around Tofino every year.
That was excellent news for B as that day he caught a 15 pound King Salmon and kept reminding me that he also caught 10 big “Dungeonous” crabs. Of course I was excited to cook up all this beautiful seafood!
That night, I made a delicious Panko Crusted Salmon dinner for Lance and his friends/family complete with a lemon dill hollondaise sauce. In addition, I also prepared:
- Smoked Salmon Spread
- Garlic Grilled BC Spot Prawns
- Freshly Steamed Dungeonous Crab with Garlic Butter
- Seared Ahi Tuna Tartare
- . . . and for desert: Crepes filled with Nutella and topped with Berries
Not to toot my own horn, but everything turned out delicious. I swear my Airstream is my lucky charm. Unfortunately hubby had the camera on the fishing trip so I wasn’t able to take pictures (I stayed behind while preparing the feast for that evening). I did, however, make a delicious One Pot Poached Mustard Dill Salmon with Leeks and Potatoes the next night for dinner. It turned out to be such a simple and delicious recipe! I adore one pot meals that turn out as good as this one did.
