Dave Adler is passionate about bringing good, smart, considerate seafood to the kitchens and plates of Haligonians. A longtime advocate for community supported seafood and Slow Fish Canada, he opened a Halifax branch of Canadian seafood shop Hooked in a wee north end location in 2016. Since then Hooked has been reeling in customers with fresh catches, fun workshops (like sushi making and fish cutting), accoutrements related to beings of the sea and recipes. This being one of them. So picture this: the season’s first gathering on your back deck, all your friends are there and you whip out a cookie sheet of perfectly crisp, browned-but-not-burnt crab cakes. Someone says they taste like a sunny day at the beach. Mic drop. Mission accomplished.
