We made dinner out of appetizers last night.
And everything came from the local area.
Buttery garlic Qualicum Bay Scallops and fresh caught Spotted Prawns. Gravlax and smoked octopus.
The chef from The Masthead a wonderful restaurant in Cowichan Bay, makes the Gravlax and the Smoked Octopus that is sold at the Cowichan Bay Seafood.
The bread is also from Cowichan Bay - True Grain Bakery.
Friends, Bud and Cathy dropped off fresh caught and cleaned prawns just as I was putting dinner together. So I cooked a few of the prawns with the scallops.
The smoked Octopus is wonderful.
