Line & Dine Options
Typically, you will have the choice of how you would like your meal prepared. Fried, grilled, or blackened are the most common choices, but other methods like fish picatta is very tasty too. Fried is a safe way to go with almost any fish. Most people enjoy fresh fried fish, but frying can take away from the flavorful depths other methods offer.
For delicate fish, like Sea Bass or Vermillion Snapper, a pan sauté can expose the flakey, soft texture and powerful sweetness in these filets. Grilling filets is more suitable for thicker cuts like Grouper, Mahi-Mahi, and Wahoo as they hold together well. Many inshore species like Redfish and Black Drum are great candidates for blackening because of their size and flavor.
Lastly, much like chicken piccata, fish picatta has strong butter and lemon flavors that pair perfectly with any kind of fish. Whichever way you choose to have your catch cooked you will absolutely recognize the difference that the freshest fish has to offer.
