I submitted this recipe to AR last Nov, and finally got a message that it was accepted pending editing.   I hope that means that it will soon be accepted and posted!  Anyways, thought I would share it here on my blog. Along with some pics!<

Some of the Ingredients:

Then saute in pan until cooked, don't brown!

Add the broth, heavy cream, and the spices!

The fish. Today it's halibut and langastino's, but any white flaky fish and shellfish will do!

The finished product, delish...

Marci’s Noyo Harbor Pan Roast

"This summer in Fort Bragg, my husband went on a fishing charter and came back to the campground with a lot of fresh caught Cod. We came up with this recipe, which was inspired by a pan roast dish we once had in a restaurant. This dish is very versatile, delicious, and is also healthy and light!"


  • 1 Tbl butter
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup sliced yellow onion
  • 2 medium red potatoes chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cans vegetable broth
  • ½ can of water
  • 2 Tbl flour
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 lb white fish such as halibut or cod, cut into chunks
  • ½ lb langostino’s or other shellfish such as shrimp or crab
  • Lemon wedges
  • *optional- ½ tsp Cayenne pepper or a pinch of Red Pepper Flakes


  1. In medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Add celery, onion, and potatoes; reduce heat to low, cover, stirring occasionally. Cook until onions are translucent, adding the garlic in the last few minutes. Do not brown vegetables.
  2. Add vegetable broth and ½ a can of water. Bring to boil, reduce to a simmer cover until potatoes and celery are done. Remove about ½ cup of hot broth from pan into measuring cup or small bowl. Stir in cream, salt, pepper and paprika, (*cayenne if desired). Add flour and whisk until smooth. Stir into soup. Bring to boil. Add fish and shellfish. Cook just until done, about 3-4 minutes.


  • Serve with crunchy bread (whole wheat for extra fiber!), lemon wedges, or Tabasco sauce for an extra kick. Nutrition info: Per serving- calories 269, fat 5, fiber 4 grams. Weight Watchers: 6 points per serving

Marcil, this looks really yummy. The picture is absolutely elegant. I like fish soup...when the fish is cod. Maybe I can get my ingreidents gathered for this soon. Congrats on the publication, too.

About Me
I'm married with 3 children. I live on 7 acres with chickens, goats, and dogs. Being a city girl and living and traveling all over the world, this lifestyle is a new adventure for me. I'm an RN and I work at the local hospital in town. I love my job, and love my community! UPDATE: We have just recently relocated to the south! My husband was relocated to Marietta, GA. We are now in the suburbs, and I am embracing our new lifestyle with open arms!
My favorite things to cook
I recently had to go Gluten Free and low sugar. This is actually a good thing for my cooking progression! I no longer buy any processed or packaged products. I make just about everything from scratch! I love soups and international foods! I absolutely love experimenting with spices and fresh herbs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy cooking with family and friends. I always give my kids jobs in the kitchen, it helps me and also helps them learn how to chop, dice, zest, puree, braise, etc... And nothing is more fun than having a friend visit, and cooking a meal together while we drink wine, and catch up on lost time!
My cooking triumphs
Creating my own recipes! I recently started doing this. I will research a food, look at several other recipes, and combine and moderate to my own taste. Check out my recipe box to see some!
My cooking tragedies
There have been so many. The family joke is my burnt bread. I burn the rolls/bread for every Christmas and Thanksgiving!!! My friend and I made our first T-giving turkey and left the plastic bag-o-guts in the turkey! And of course, there's the time that I mistakently added 1 cup of salt instead of sugar in a cookie recipe!
