A Lovely Local Meal

I bought some halibut in Kelso. It was just so fresh and nice but 25 pounds a kilo. The girl saw my face and weighed it and charged me 15 pounds for the piece which was nearly a kilo. I also bought some Samphire, a sea edge vegetable which has a short season.
We cooked the halibut with a simple seasoned flour and pan fried it until the skin was crisp and served it wioth the Samphire tossed in butter for 1 minute, brocolli and new potatoes with parsley sauce. One of the best meals I have had since we came to Scotland.
