Snapper Saturday on Little Corn

Good day,

The above snapper was purchased not long ago for $5US at the rate of $1 / pound, muahahah. Buying fresh fish here is incredibly easy as most days someone will have fish, it often changes but once the news gets out it’s not hard to sniff out the spot of sale. This was purchased from a catch of roughly 100lbs that included jack, snapper, barracuda, king fish and lots of odd looking creatures whose names elude me.

A gent involved had egregious plans to make this “bodacious BBQ” but it was foiled and eventually cooked on a stove in none other than tin foil. It was one of those BBQ’s where someone like myself immediately says “this isn’t going to work, there is not enough coal” but someone insists until you end up flipping it around on a propane stove, lol. The true player way is to go to the beach, build a small fire pit in the sand, let it go to embers then throw in some tin foil with your fish, veg etc… Add in a sunset and you’re ready to roll, seriously.

We probably could have taken a better shot of the finished product but whatever.

It’s Saturday, please remember to go out and be social even if it’s against your nature…

Tips hat,

P.S: I love red snapper.

        Yesssssirrrrrr, there is nothing in the world like fresh snapper. And the best part is that there are always more fish in the sea. But I digress… Is there a choice to be had between cooking them in an open pit for a faster seared flavour versus covering the pit over with sand and letting the coals work slow roast succulency into the meat?

          Good day,

          Many people put them in tinfoil and have beach picnics, I enjoy a good grilling if done properly but can’t go wrong with a good fried fillet. That said, whole fried fish is amazing as well, next time I catch and keep one in Canada, it will be cooked whole.
