Thursday Best Bites - Black Cat Bistro

Where:  Black Cat Bistro, 428 Preston Street, Ottawa, Ontario

What:  Pan Roasted Halibut

Comments:  I had a hard time deciding what I was going to dining companion was amazed watching me think through each choice - even down to the last minute I changed my mind, and I am glad that I did.  Fish can be a tricky thing - even for a talented chef.  I find sometimes that in their effort to bring out the natural flavours of the fish, I usually end up underwhelmed.  Not this time.  The fish was cooked perfectly (nice browning and perfect flaking on my fork) and the flavours of the brown butter and caper vinaigrette were outstanding.  The fish was pan roasted and served on a bed of fingerling potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, ramps, capers and that sensational vinaigrette.  I formed each bite carefully on my fork, so as not to miss a single drop of goodness.  I was not disappointed. Delish!

  1. You have me salivating. The picture is beautiful. I love having fish when I eat out as I find most good chefs do a much better job than I do. It really is a treat when you can find it prepared so well.
