In this kitchen curatorial, we compile some seafood and freshwater fish recipes from around the world to help celebrate late summer. It’s nearly impossible to experience summer here in Montana without also experiencing the art of trout fishing, so we include a couple of interesting takes on cooking with trout. To round out the curatorial, we also wanted to showcase some recipes that will tempt any palette with oysters, clams and halibut.
