Sip ‘n Slurp 2013

17 Nov

Thursday evening was the 4th Annual Sip ‘n Slurp hosted at 1 Fish 2 Fish in Langley. They hold this event every November to celebrate Ocean Wise month and raise awareness about healthy, sustainable seafood. The food this year was prepared by Chef Sean Bone, and the beverages were supplied by Kalala Wines and Four Winds Brewing.

The event was sold out, so the market was packed. The price for the event included everything, so we were able to drink and eat to our heart’s content. My only complaint (and it’s a small one) about this event is that it is so packed in there, and sometimes it’s very difficult to ensure that you get to try everything. I don’t know how this can be fixed in the future, but I do appreciate that the staff tried their best to make sure that the food is evenly distributed between everyone.

Here’s some of what we sampled that evening:

albacore tuna

Raw oyster bar. YUM!

rock crab

lifeguard stew

sturgeon

Sturgeon with mint, cilantro and a sauce that I can’t remember, but WOW was this ever tasty!

salmon tataki

Salmon Tataki with arugula and a corn puree. Unfortunately I only got one picture of this and it turned out blurry. I had to include it, though, as the colours on this dish were amazing!

It was a fabulous evening of delicious food and drinks, and I will absolutely be back again next year. I haven’t yet met a type of seafood that I don’t like, so it’s hard to pass up the opportunity to spend an evening eating delicious and beautiful food from the ocean.
