Take Your Best Shot: Prosciutto-wrapped halibut

The photographer: Gregory Shaffer of Grass Valley

The dish: Certainly the culinary highlight for our group of two Northern California couples – as we enjoyed a week on the west coast of Vancouver Island, B.C. – was Norwoods in Ucluelet, B.C. Impeccable service, truly inventive cocktails and excellent suggested wine pairings made for a most memorable evening. Among the entrée highlights was prosciutto-wrapped halibut on a potato gratin, grilled zucchini and marinated tomatoes. The halibut was moist and delectable, but the gratin was my personal favorite. The only disappointment is that halfway through our three-hour meal we discovered that Norwoods is closed the only other night we had available to come back before heading home.
