There's not much to do on Decatur Island in Washington State -- and that’s just how its residents like it. Food editor Shira Bocar shares her favorite place to be once summer rolls around, as well as foods that showcase the island’s bounty. (Crab cakes and berry pie, anyone?)
Seafood takes on a casual attitude when made into sandwiches. Enjoy convenient canned tuna dressed up with fresh herbs, zesty dressings, or crunchy fresh vegetables; grilled salmon fillets; fresh tuna burgers; simple and delicate lobster, shrimp, and crab salads; and po'boys made with crunchy fried flounder or scallops.
Mini crab cakes encrusted with sesame seeds get a kick from wasabi and soy sauce. The toppings of wasabi, mayonnaise, cucumber, and pickled ginger add creaminess, crispness, and tang, as well as color.
