From the Proprietor
Last Wednesday night we served Texas Bouillabaisse to over 1,200 people at the annual banquet for the Austin Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association. There was a live auction, a silent auction, and a raffle - all aimed at raising money "to conserve, promote and enhance the present and future availability of...coastal resources for the benefit and enjoyment of the general public." It was a fun event for a great cause! If you'd like to become a member of your local CCA, visit their website. We hope you enjoy our photos of the event on our Flickr photostream. Have a wonderful weekend!

Recipe of the Week
Shaved Fennel Salad with Coriander Crusted Hamachi (recipe credit: Ming Tsai)

3 heads of fennel, cored and sliced super thinly on mandoline
Juice of 2 limes
2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
2 tablespoons chopped chives
4 four-ounce pieces of hamachi, skin-off
(you could also use ahi)
3 tablespoons coarsely ground coriander
Canola oil for cooking
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 

Place coriander in a pie plate. Season the hamachi with salt and pepper and press both sides of hamachi into coriander. Coat a sauté pan over high heat lightly with canola oil and sear the hamachi on both sides, about 30 seconds a side. To make salad, in a large bowl, combine fennel, lime juice, grapeseed oil and chives. Check for flavor and season; let macerate for 5 minutes. To serve, place a small mound of fennel salad in center of plate and top with thinly sliced hamachi.
