Pease pudding hot, pease pudding cold, pease pudding at The Fish Exchange

Fishernan's Platter
The Captain’s Seafood Feast

Pease pudding hot, pease pudding cold, pease pudding on a seafood platter is the bomb.

I’ve seen so many group dinners go wrong that it’s a pleasant surprise when a restaurant pulls it off as well as they did recently at The Fish Exchange in St. John’s, Newfoundland.  Twelve of us sat in a private room and the staff did an excellent job.  Food and drinks all arrived promptly and were served with good cheer.

We shared some cod tongues to mixed reviews.  I loved them but they were maybe a little out of peoples comfort zone.  Salt cod fritters were better received.

I had the Captain’s Seafood Feast, a beautiful platter of shrimp, scallops, salmon, halibut, lobster and sale cod fishcake.  I was delighted to find some delicious pease pudding on my plate.  They only serve it with the seafood feast so I was the only one that had it.  Since everyone else wasn’t from Newfoundland and had never had pease pudding I asked if we could have a side order to share.  No problem, and they delivered a small dish for everyone to try.  The response, as expected was mixed.  I could have eaten every bit but I didn’t know everyone well enough.

I would recommend The Fish Exchange for groups for sure.
