October 2: Shopping and Feasting

We promised ourselves a “seafood feast”, and to this end visited the amazing T & T supermarket for clams, oysters, mussels and prawns.   You select your live shell-fish from tanks with tongs, and place them in a basket.  Then the smiling helper weighs, packs and labels them.

We also decided to experiment with barbecued oysters.  I think the huge West Coast oysters are better cooked than raw, and this is a great way to do so.  After about 8 minutes they open, and are ready to eat in their shells with a suitable sauce.  This time we tried Ginger Teriyaki, and it worked fine.  When we do this again we will try a lemony sauce, which might compliment their flavour even better.

Elaine prepared a fantastic zarzuela, which we consumed with good BC wines, and agreed that life on the West Coast was pretty darned good.   This is actually the case, in this batch of warm sunny days.  Long may they continue!
