Who am I kidding….what an awesome week I had!
On Wednesday I went out on a Chartered Fishing Boat in Jersey.
What a great trip. I’m a morning person so waking up at 5:30am was no biggie. The sun was out and the temps were just right. There was a slight ocean breeze, but nothing too rough to stir up some waves. We were going for Fluke. Overall, I caught three J SOO exciting!! But, my fish were all ONE INCH too short so we had to throw them back. womp womp….but not before I snapped a pic
I didn’t really mind throwing the fish back because the excitement was in the catch and release! But, my friend had two keepers and shared (so nice!) so I was able to come home with some fresh catch.
There is nothing like fresh catch. It’s the sea-to-table for me! lol
Fish is a good source of lean protein the AHA wants us to include two servings of fish per week. I seasoned the one piece with a little lemon and pepper. I think it’s a fresh taste that really complements white fish. The other piece was seasoned with fresh herbs from my Herb Garden. So convenient from the backyard!
As far as cooking goes, I favor the grill to keep the heat outside!! I wrapped them in foil and threw it on the grill. You could also bake them of course.
I served the fish with sautéed spinach and faro. Delicious!
So now you can see that it was a fun filled experience. Overall I got to spend some QT with friends and enjoy a beautiful day at the shore! It’s the little things!
