To trigger the event with Pascal you will need to dive and find a sea creature called a scallop (we found ours on the north side of the island near the netting). When you find a scallop you will trigger an interaction with the otter named Pascal. During this sequence Pascal will ask for the scallop you just found. Give it to Pascal to get an ocean themed recipe in return.

These interactions occurs the same way every time, you will find the scallops needed and Pascal will appear asking you to give it to him. Each time you give the otter a scallop you will receive something in return. This can be items, recipes, or materials.
