I've said it before and I'll say it again: you can live like a king up here on what people throw away. Two days ago, I filched a halibut carcass that was headed for the dumpster. I spent the morning making a fumet It was made more difficult because I had Labrador Retrievers weaving through my legs. I let it simmer for an hour, then tossed out the bones and strained it. Later I added some tomatoes and parsley. It was rich and creamy, one of the best things I've ever made. It tasted vaguely of Kachemak Bay.
