Working at a remote fishing lodge like BC West means that your culinary opportunities are somewhat limited. You can’t just jump in the car and head out for a fine dining experience or even go to a grocery store to pick up something tasty to cook at home.
With that said we do have some opportunities that one cannot enjoy in the civilized world!
When conditions are right we row out into the bay and set out our prawn traps in 90 to 250 feet of water. After an overnight soak we head back out on the bay and pull them up in the hopes of harvesting a load of giant spotted prawns and coastal shrimp.
Next step is to bring them back to the lodge where our chef, Belinda, fixes them up into a mouth- watering dish.
This just may be about the best seafood treat on the Pacific coast and you just cannot get them any fresher.
