Canned seafood! One of my favorite meals is the dried ricotta and spinach tortellini. Cook it up and toss with olive oil, minced garlic and a tin of smoked clams. Yum. Dinner in less than ten.
That does sound pretty tasty too, Kim ! :)
I've not been buying smoked oysters b/c all the ones I've seen are from China & I'm not confident in their water purity. Oysters are filter feeders after all~ (I won't eat gulf oysters either)
Vivian, I usually rinse the cast skillet in plenty of sea water using sand/shells to clean off the food bits and grease with a stick. Then a quick tiny freshwater rinse & dry. I've found that leaves just enough sheen of grease to keep rust to a minimum. I store in it's own plastic bag so it doesn't funk up the dry bag cook kit. At season's end (like now) I clean with detergent and lightly oil it for storage.
