Beer Battered Fish and Chips
4 large baking potatoes, cut into chip-size strips (see my recipe for Wigan chips)
1 to 1-½ pounds fish filets (I use cod, sole or halibut). When buying seafood, buy "Wild" and not "Farm Raised" - the results are 100% better!
1 (12-oz.) bottle beer
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon each salt, black pepper, garlic powder
¼ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, pour in 1 bottle of beer. Sift 1-½ cups flour into the bowl, whisking in gently until just combined.
Stir in salt, pepper, garlic powder, Old Bay and Parmesan cheese.

Classic Crab Cakes
Prep: 15 Minutes Chill: 1 Hour Cook: 20 Minutes.
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup soft fresh breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1¼ teaspoons seafood seasoning
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound fresh lump crabmeat, drained
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
Combine first 6 ingrediebnts in a medium bowl. Fold in crabmeat. Shape crab mixture into 4 (4-inch) patties; chill 1 hour.
Melt butter with oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add crab cakes, and cook 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until golden. Makes 4 servings.
To make Crab Cake BLT, place bottom of 1 toasted bun on a serving plate; spread with 2 teaspoons mayonnaise and top with 1 lettuce leaf, 2 cooked bacon slices, 1 Classic Crab Cake, 2 tomato slices, and top of toasted bun. Makes 1 serving.
Tips for a Fab Crab Cake:
Buy Fresh - Shop at a reputable market or store, and check the package expiration date. Cook crabmeat the day of purchase for best results, or keep in the coldest part of the fridge no longer than 3 days.
Pick thoroughly - Nobody wants to bite down on a shard of crab shell, so gently run your fingertips through all of the crabmeat. (Periodically drying your hands with a paper towel makes this chore easier.)
Chill first - Place uncooked patties on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or wax paper and refrigerate about 1 hour. This helps keep crab cakes in one piece when you cook them.
Fry gently - Sauté lump and jumbo lump crab cakes in a small amount of oil.
NOTES ON CRAB MEAT
Jumbo Lump This luxury grade consists of chunks of sweet, white meat from the crab's large swimming muscles. There are only 2 pieces per crab, thus the high price tag. Use it in crab cocktail or premium all-meat crab cakes; or dip it in melted butter.
Lump Lump crab has the same flavor and color as Jumbo Lump, but it comes from the body of the crab (and can include broken-up jumbo lump pieces). It's excellent in crab cakes, crab cocktail, and some pasta dishes where larger pieces are preferred.
Backfin These small pieces of lump crabmeat combined with white body meat have a slightly shredded appearance. A good value choice, backfin is great for soups, salads, stuffing and crab cakes with bread as a binder.
Claw Claw meat comes from the legs and pinchers. (Large whole pinchers are also sold for fried crab claws or crab claw cocktail.) Claw meat is pink to brown, very flavorful, and economy priced. It's stronger flavor comes through in casseroles or cheesy dips.
Can I freeze fresh crabmeat? It is not recommended - as the meat dehydrates, becoming tough and flavorless. Prepared recipes such as crab cakes, soup or casseroles, however, can be kept in the freezer up to3 months, as the crab is preserved by the other ingredients.

¼ cup chopped fresh thyme or 1 tablespoon dried thyme
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
½ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted, divided

Salmon and Pasta
2-3 lb. de-boned salmon filet
¼-½ stick of butter
Cajun seasoning - preferably Paul Prudhomme
½-qt. heavy cream
1+ cup of white wine (Chardonnay has a good tang)
1 box angel hair pasta
Cover salmon filets with Cajun seasoning and let sit for an hour
Melt ¼-½ stick of butter in frying pan
Pour in spoon full of Cajun seasoning
Bring to light bubble - don't let it brown
Cook salmon in pan at medium to high heat - keep an eye on it so it doesn't brown
Reduce to low and remove salmon and put aside in a bowl so you dont lose the juice
Add 1 cup of white wine to pan
Reduce 10-20% and bring to a boil
Throw in ½-qt. heav cream
Whisk sauce to get everything to blend
Taste to see if you need more seasoning (reduced wine makes things spicy, so if you need more spice, throw in a little more wine).
Just before serving throw salmon and its juce back in the pan
Break the salmon into bite-size pieces
Cover and simmer for a minute, then stir and pull it off the stove
Boil up a whole box of angel hair pasta
Dish up pasta; then cover with salmon and sauce
Same dish with a difference:
Substitute shrimp for salmon. Everything is the same; but when you put the shrimp back in the frying pan; you may need some shrimp stock because it doesn't give off the same amount of juice as the salmon. Make the stock with shrimp heads and shells.
