A Walk in the Park (Kincaid Park)

Elder Moffitt and I decided that we would like to go to Kincaid Park in Anchorage to see the dead beached Humpback whale that was lying on the beach.  We actually got more than we bargained for!  Besides the dead whale, we saw live Beluga whales briefly, unfortunately I did not get a photo of them. 

When we first arrived there, we encountered people taking lots of photos and looked and there were a few moose there, including a big bull moose with quite a rack of antlers!

   I took my picture than I got out of there! 


We also saw a mama moose with her baby calf!

Elder and Sister Coy's Yummiest Ever Halibut Recipes

Asiago Halibut

1/4 cup Asiago Cheese, grated                         egg
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated                     flour
1 cup Japanese Bread Crumbs, Panko
pinch of salt

Mix cheeses, bread crumbs, and salt together and put in dish (the amounts represent the ratios. . . it usually takes 2-4 times these amounts).  Dredge sliced halibut in flour or shake it in a bag then dip in egg bath and into the mixture-patting on both sides.  Fry in clarified butter for approximately 2 min. on each side in a very hot pan.

Elder & Sister Coy like to serve it with mashed potatoes and gravy (use the leftover flour and butter solids/remainder of clarified butter and make it in the pan used for frying).

Sweet and Sour Halibut

1 1/2 lbs. fish fillets cut into roughly 1 inch pieces

3/4 cup cold water
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder

Pat fish dry with paper towels.  Heat oil (1-1/1/2 " deep) to 360 degrees.  Prepare batter by mixing all the ingredients.  Dip fish in batter with tongs.   Allow excess batter to drip back into bowl.  Fry 7-8 pieces at a time until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side.  Drain on paper towels.  Arrange on platter; pour sauce over fish.

Cut up carrots-cover with water in a separate pan
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 can pineapple chunks
1 green pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces

Heat carrots and water to boiling.  Cover and cook until crisp-tender, 8-10 minutes.  Mix brown sugar, vinegar, cornstarch, and soy sauce in a 2pquart saucepan.  Stir in carrots (with liquid), pineapple chunks with syrup, and green pepper.  Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.  Boil and stir 1 minute.
