Fish on the Half-Shell and Fried Flounder — 36 Comments

  1. There you go. I never got any of the secret stuff.
    Did it pass mustard? I never got a flounder there T week but the hole rocked Tuesday.

    Awesome post, what are you thinking?

    Making white beans for ice outing tomorrow.
    Had to buy my own bay leaves. Crawled through 4 stores to find some that looked good enough.

    Peace and Fish in 2011, people. Army of ones. I-1-11.

  2. Looks good BW,sister makes all our tartar sauce and a great dill sauce that goes well with fish also but I am always willing to try out new stuff.
    Pizza here tonite for supper,I cooked last night.cubed Canada goose breasts that I country fried,country gravey from a mix and biskets that a local makes and the local country store sells them frozen,turned out great.

    Very Happy New Year y’all

      • Crabbing has been great up until this last freeze,water temps went to the mid 40s inshore and they buried up but we have had a few warm days now and rain so I am going tomorrow to see what the new year brings.Price is good and sales are good,hopefully the scare of gul;f seafood from the spill is fading.

        • The fish in this post came from very near Grand Isle . . . an area treated with Corexit dispersant. I guess if we were going to get sick from eating them, we would have done so already. So I proclaim THE SEAFOOD IS SAFE TO EAT!
          Wishing you a good catch!

  3. All those beautiful fish are making me hungry! They all looked delicious. Can’t wait to hear about the product you’re launching. Had fresh greens out of the garden, blackeyed peas, baked sweet potatoes, cornbread and porkloin roast for new years dinner. Happy New Year!

        • I just throw a piece of plastic wrap over the laptop. It’s easier than bibs. LOL! We’re leaving Mon. and returning Sat. Five days of water, and I won’t have a rod and reel. THAT’S JUST NOT RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!

          • You’ll be so stuffed with the spread they put out for you, you won’t even think about fishing!!! Yes, do have a grand time, and I have an assignment for you. Two things: Did you get bored at any time? What was your favorite thing to do while on board?

  4. Steffi, have a grand ol’ time!

    BW, we had corned beef with cabbage, black eyed peas and a 3-alarm pepper loaded cheddar! And cornbread of course. But, no matter how stuffed, I can always find room for fried or grilled fish! I always fix an extra fillet or two because, I love them cold also.

    Will be looking forward to that new product for tarter sauce. I make mine a lot but, I’m willing to try new products. Never know if you like it until you try it.

    Happy New Years!

  5. Happy 2011, BW!

    I have a confession to make.

    I’m coming out of the closet.

    I am not a fish/seafood eater.

    Please don’t hit me!

    I love being on the water and doing the actual act of fishing. I just can’t eat what’s caught.

    I’ve got friends and relatives that think I’m certify-able. I’ve tried this, I’ve tasted that, I’ve tried the other. I will try anything once. Sometimes, even two or three times. The only thing I have ever found palatable was smoked marlin, which I saw/tasted once and have never seen again.

    That being said, I can tell when fish/seafood is done right or when a recipe would be good and what side dishes will go well with it. I can also cook it, though I may have a clothespin on my nose! I guess it’s from seeing it fixed so often. Or maybe an innate sense of what’s right, seafood-wise?

    Your pictures and descriptions of how things were prepared should have your fish-loving readers drooling.

    P.S. I brought my Dad by to see a few of your entries. He was really interested, as he’s always been an outdoorsman. He’s 83 now, almost 84. Due to health issues, he no longer gets out much and can no longer fish or hunt. I left him with a link to your entries here but he’s not very computer literate. I may have to give him a refresher course, the next time I go up to visit him. He’s about a 4 hour drive away, so I go up every 6-8 weeks.

    • Well, I guess I’ll give you the first “PASS” of 2011. You don’t have to eat fish/seafood, but it’s sure a good thing you don’t live on this bayou, cher, or you would STARVE!!!! So glad you introduced your dad to the stories. To make it easy, use the Category drop down menu, and click on Fishing. It will list, from newest to oldest, all the posts related to fishing. That makes things easier. Also, there is a category for hunting, and it’s best to start reading oldest to newest because some of the stories are progressive. And I GUARANTEE you, he will enjoy some of the duck hunting stories!!!!! Thanks again for sharing! BW

      • LOL!!!!!!!!!!!! Termite’s duck hunt. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        I do believe that is my FAVORITE story I’ve read on your blog. You’ll have to file that one away under “Future Grandma Stories”.

    • HNY, TB! Oh, it tasted almost identical. The drum was, indeed, delicious. Right at 16 inches does the trick, I think!!! How did their fishing trip go last week? Call me?

  6. Great post and Happy New Year. The photos are great and sounds like ya’ll had a great time. I really wish you would adopt me!
    Thanks for your great blog.

    • Courtney, I have to apologize and tell you that I know we’ve communicated in the past; but this brain does not have much RAM left (can’t clear out the old stuff, ya know?), so could you please send me a message through a contact box at the bottom of the About page refreshing my memory? That way, we can email back and forth and talk about this adoption thing! LOL! HNY! BW

    • Ann, all you have to do is read the blog, and on the day of the contest, be sure and enter!!! All winners are drawn at random. And if he gives me a case, then I can have more contests!!
