1 tsp parsley
1 tsp lemon zest
2 tsp lemon juice

3) Take them out of the pot and let them cool, and cut them into 4ths.
4) Once the potatoes are cooled, add your seasoning and sour cream.

Ingredients:
Roux:
¼ C Flour
2 tbsp butter
1 cup Cidre
2 C fish stock
½ C heavy cream

10 oz - Halibut
1/4 cup chopped fennel
2 cloves chopped garlic
2 tbsp chopped shallots
2 stalks celery

Process:
Add oil into pot, sweat veggies (fennel, garlic, shallots, celery, carrots) with butter. Add flour / stir together to incorporate - make sure to continually stir.

Slowly add Cidre, stirring as you’re pouring in. Add the fish stock - it should bubble as it starts to thicken. This means the roux is activating.

Chop your thyme, and add to the pot along with your Old Bay and salt and pepper. Cube your halibut fillet, and add to the pot - cooking for ~ 10 minutes

Add cream. Stir.

Serve in a bowl with oyster crackers

fish chowder

this week byron is in hampton, new hampshire, checking out the largest seafood festival in new england, and getting some tips for his own fish chowder recipe.
