All fishermen on the west coast have a moniquer. Gary was called Gentle Ben, though never to his face, for his easygoing disposition. Since he’s never let me call him Benny, I named a dish after him. I use his smoked salmon on fresh made English muffins, covered with poached eggs, and topped with a wine reduction dill sauce. If he’s been out fishing the day before, I’ve been known to add some fresh prawns to finish it off.
