Salmon House on the Hill

The festivities continued for my parents at their residence the following day. Amica always has excellent food and the Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa we had along with an artichoke salad for dinner was excellent. I did however have yet Another Dinner scheduled for that evening with defacto son-in-law Dino and his new bride Krista at Salmon House on the Hill
We started with a table full of appetisers: the Salmon House Sampler, which featured candied salmon, smoked wild sockeye, smoked salmon spinache roulade, aldergrove salmon with salsa, chutney and creme friche; along with panko mango prawns. Mmm, more mangos. Do I get a nuclear reactor with them? Thankfully, a bottle of Stella's Jay Brut accompanied the appetisers. What the Mahi Mahi at Amica missed was some accompanying wine.
I didn't think I'd be able to eat an entree after that, but I bravely ordered the Fennel Spice Seared Ahi Tuna with seared potatoes, yellow curry vinaigrette and mango.
Krista asked the server to pair a wine with her order so I did as well and she recommended a red. With fish? Well it was worth the adventure. As the server had promised, the pepper crust on the tuna went perfectly with the red. Wasnt paying attention to what it was, but if you order this tasty dish, your server will no doubt tell you.
I ended my massive food intake with a cup of the Salmon House Coffee, which includes Frangelico and Kahlua. Excellent end to a magnificent meal. Perhaps it reminded Dino of
a previous visit.
Thankfully my hosts had a large truck to take me home in. That's the most food I've eaten for "dinner" since Fumiyo and I were in Europe. Fumiyo is in England for the week, hopefully eating well.
