Kitchen Talk with Chef Jeremy McLachlan (52)

Tuna U R Still No. 1 in My Book

Tuna used to be la crème de la crème in the U.S. for decades as a meaty and flavor-packed fish. It was the No. 1 seafood consumed here in America, and canned tuna was an amazing vehicle for protein supplementation before the rise of super supplements. You can store a can of tuna for over a month! It's easy to see why it lasted so long at the top of the charts. As my fellow blogger Kathy Kingen says, "Tuna is a brilliant fish with a great nutritious repertoire ... it has been a staple of low-calorie dieters everywhere."

I got a couple swallows of the Columbia River, but luckily my dad always practiced safe boating and I bobbed up floating in my life vest. After a quick boat ride back to our campsite and an hour in front of the fire...

Holy Halibut, Batman!!!

The Big Flounder of the Deep is finally here and at its prime. This is my favorite white lean fish. The delicate flaky meat is fantastic and good for you, too! If you don't believe me, just ask Kathy Kingen (Good for You). Whenever I dream of a dish featuring this amazing fish, I always know one thing: unlike the mid-region of my body, halibut needs fat! Because halibut is so lean, it's great pan-seared and rubbed with a compound butter or...
