Homemade Bird Dog Pizza Recipe

This Bird Dog Pizza recipe is the basic Bird Dog recipe in pizza form. The Bird Dog pizza is also available from a local pizza restaurant. It’s our son’s favorite one to order. He orders it every single time we get take out, and every single time I sort of cringed thinking how odd it must be. That is until I tried it myself during that one very satisfying homemade pizza night a couple of weeks ago. No more cringing from me. No sirree bobtail. I couldn’t believe how unbelievable the combination was in pizza form. We were all fighting for the last piece.

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.
