Happy Thursday Speakies:
As I promised today we are talking “SEAFOOD” and I want to see you send in comments on your favorite seafood dishes no excuses if you can read write me a comment on my blog. When I was younger and it was summer my Dad made several trips fishing on head or party boats at Pt. Pleasant, NJ with the guys we worked with. I loved when he brought back fresh cleaned fluke or better known as summer flounder. Mom used to bread it, side it with some fries and coleslaw and there was one great summer meal. I also remember the times my Uncle Charlie had a boat and we would fish Barnegat Bay for Blowfish. My uncle had a board on his boat that we merely but the fish on a nail attached and one quick jerk and the meat came clearly off. There was not a lot of filet on each fish but at that time you could boat about 100 fish per day. Blowfish was fried like flounder and very tasty and there was never any talk about poison sacks. Good memories of times past. I guess I got off the favorite seafood subject, but those were the fun days of catching fish and enjoying seafood at its finest to me.
You readers know that many times I have written about seafood and my favorite types. I love shrimp, mussels, lobster, crab, flounder, sea trout and scallops. My son says I have to try Key West Grunts, they are small fish not much meat but if you catch a nice batch they make a good meal. Light in flesh and very tasty; when I retire I think I will give that a try and see if I can have a meal worth eating. For those in the Central Florida area or those planning a visit, a friend I work with suggested trying “HOT N JUICY CRAWFISH” located in Orlando. I placed their website below for you to check it out. You can eat there or take out I understand the seafood is very fresh and tasty. http://hotnjuicycrawfish.com/
So much for today and seafood, have a wonderful day and be careful out there.
