Beer Braised Chicken Recipe

That’s the one where a whole chicken is roasted on top of a beer can on the grill or in the oven. Beer braised chicken is the same general flavor profile but there are a couple advantages. First of all you can choose which chicken parts to cook instead of having to cook the whole thing. Secondly, beer roasted chicken is never dry. Yes, flavorful and juicy.

Pecan Encrusted Halibut Recipe

Pecan Encrusted Halibut Recipe

Here in South Carolina we don’t always have the best selection of Alaskan fresh fish so when when the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute contacted me about sending some Wild Alaska halibut (the steak of seafood) to try, I was more than tickled. I knew exactly what I would make with it before it arrived at our door, but instead of a Potato Encrusted Halibut I prepared a Pecan Encrusted Halibut. Nothing but a simple coating with pecan bits, a quick sear, a visit to the oven to finish up and it was perfectly done in no time. I served it along with a mushroom risotto and easy Roasted Asparagus and it was just like being at Brick Street only I was barefoot. Try this one soon the next time you’re able to purchase Wild Alaska halibut. I think you’ll enjoy this a lot.
