Had just a little time yesterday so I decided to do a little sea food. Several kinds so bear with me. The raws:

First up was a little salmon on adder wood plank. A simple baste of butter and brown sugar, capers and a limon slice on top along with a sprinkle of smoked dryed parsley I did from my garden. Cooked at 300 till the fish weeped.

Next up tuna real simple. Sea salt and cracked pepper straight up at 350 for about 45 seconds a side. Took all pans out to the shack with hot water in them so as not to cool down food.

Next scallops provencal, a recipe by Ina Garten
Ingredients
nocoupons

* 1 pound fresh bay or sea scallops
* Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
* All-purpose flour, for dredging
* 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, divided
* 1/2 cup chopped shallots (2 large)
* 1 garlic clove, minced
* 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
* 1/3 cup dry white wine
* 1 lemon, cut in 1/2

Directions

If you're using bay scallops, keep them whole. If you're using sea scallops, cut each 1 in half horizontally. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, toss with flour, and shake off the excess.

In a very large saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the butter over high heat until sizzling and add the scallops in 1 layer. Lower the heat to medium and allow the scallops to brown lightly on 1 side without moving them, then turn and brown lightly on the other side. This should take 3 to 4 minutes, total. Melt the rest of the butter in the pan with the scallops, then add the shallots, garlic, and parsley and saute for 2 more minutes, tossing the seasonings with the scallops. Add the wine, cook for 1 minute, and taste for seasoning. Serve hot with a squeeze of lemon juice.


First drain scallops well and coat in flower.

    Buddy,

    Nice cooks all! Love the look of that turkey! You should try a white bean and turkey chili with some off those death peppers.
