Her name was Gloria. My first and only hurricane experience.

Here’s how Wikipedia describes Hurricane Gloria:

Hurricane Gloria was the first significant system to strike the northeastern United States since Hurricane Agnes in 1972 and the first major storm to affect New York and Long Island directly since Hurricane Donna in 1960. It was a powerful Cape Verde-type hurricane that formed during the 1985 Atlantic hurricane season, originating from a tropical wave on September 16 in the eastern Atlantic Ocean. After remaining a weak tropical cyclone for several days, Gloria intensified into a hurricane on September 22 north of the Lesser Antilles. During that time, the storm had moved generally westward, although it turned to the northwest due to a weakening of the ridge. Gloria quickly intensified on September 24, and the next day reached peak winds of 145 mph (230 km/h). The hurricane weakened before striking the Outer Banks of North Carolina on September 27. Later that day, Gloria made two subsequent landfalls on Long Island and later western Connecticut, before becoming extra-tropical on September 28 over New England. The remnants moved through Atlantic Canada, eventually dissipating on October 2.

Macadamia Nut Crusted Fish

I used cod for my version of this dish. You can use just about any fish fillet. Just adjust the cooking time depending on how thick your fish pieces are. Cod is quite thick. My pieces were over 1” thick.

Servings: Serves 2. Can be doubled easily.
