The first part of the recipe, and typically what triggers the Half Boiled quest, is found on Einar’s dock. It’s located on the lower part, near the stand on the left side. The Galdur often stands right near it, making it easier to find than the second piece.

With the beginning of Palian Onion Soup in hand, you need to find the second piece. While it may seem like the part is far away, it’s actually still located on the dock. This time it’s up the small staircase, laying in front of a the wooden barrels on the right side. There can be other papers on the dock that you can’t interact with, which makes it tricky to find the correct one.
