Albacore is on the menu for Restaurant Beck a at the Whale Cove Inn in Depoe Bay. “‘Foodie heaven’ might be an apt description for Restaurant Beck — one of the newest upscale additions to Oregon’s coastal dining scene,” writes reviewer Diane Reynolds for the StatesmanJournal.com in Oregon.
Selections for a first course include albacore tuna with watercress, orange segments and mustard rémoulade or a seafood sausage.
That mention of seafood sausage got us thinking … could albacore be transformed into a sausage? Yes, some say it can. Christian Bowers offers an intriguing recipe in the Austin Food Journal – with the title “Tuna Sausage: The Revolution Has Begun!” Albacore and fennel, they should go well together.
Back to Reynolds’ review. She called the night out “flawless.” We want to go! Tonight!
