Then I put it breast side up again, basted it, checked the temp (120 F), reduced the heat to 300 F and roasted it another 30 minutes until the thermometer reported 160 F in the thickest part of the breast.

We added cole slaw, baked beans, and various snack items. Dessert was a chocolate-caramel tart (that my daughter had made earlier for a neighborhood dinner). Drinking included Brandy Manhattans, Picon Fizz's, a Portuguese red, and a Miraflores Syrah. Fun meal. Crappy game.

Swordfish with roasted lemons...sounds heavenly. We get so hungry for good fish up here, but sadly only eat it about once a month. Not much fresh fish available.

How can that be, you live on the water? Do the markets up there not carry fresh fish? We live three hours inland and have an abundance of fresh fish brought in several times a week, in various locations.

Karen/NoCA wrote:That just boggles my mind. It seems to me that folks who live on the coast would be seafood lovers, as well as loving the environment. I did a little search and found about ten seafood restaurants/markets in that area. In our travels, we have been up the OR and WA coast many times and have always enjoyed the seafood, much of it coming right off the boat. We have been into Canada three times, but not sure about your area. Too many trips, I need to refer to my travel diary. Well, at least you are close enough to make a run to the fish when you want it.
