Bittersweet Autumn

September 15th, 2018 § 0 comments

Tiny touches of color are beginning to adorn the trees on Prince Edward Island. The population is shrinking as tourists, summer renters and cottage owners leave. Some businesses will close until spring of 2019. By the Bay Fish Mart, source of many happy HG/BSK seafood meals, closed for the season today. But, before it shuttered HG/BSK scored a pound of their excellent sole. BSK gave it a savory treatment (learned from her chef daughter-in-law, Exquisite Maiko). The firm filets were sauteed/steamed on a bed of spinach, bok choy, garlic and ginger. Canola oil and white wine provided the necessary moisture. This is one of HG’s favorite dishes. Light, satisfying, flavorful. Tonight it was served with rice noodles (rice sticks) and dry fried string beans. As is HG’s custom, the fiery spice lover enhanced everything with dashes of chili oil and sriracha. Noodles got a hit of sesame oil. September weather has been crisp and sunny. Sleep under many blankets. Though it’s bittersweet saying a seasonal good bye to the businesses that have served HG/BSK with typical Island warmth and friendliness, HG/BSK are joyous that they have many more PEI autumn days to enjoy together.
