Gulf coast seafood lends itself to lots of seasoning and spices, whereas the seafood meals I've had on New England or California trips seem to focus much more on the fish. No doubt this has to do with the quality of the water off those coasts versus the nasty Gulf.

I don't really prefer one style over the other, but if my last meal had a pescatarian mandate, it would probably be something with a little spice to it.


i ordered a lobster when i was in the caribbean once, it came out looking good, was really big - but was just bland. I think North Atlantic ocean saltiness makes them better.

i think i'll grill rainbow trout on sunday.

if you grill fish directly on the grill, spread them with a mixture of 2 tbs of mayo (gross) and 1/2 tbs of honey. the mayo will let them release from the grill without sticking (provided you let them stay there without fucking with them before you flip them) and the honey will help them char.

i like the sound of this.

we seem to have the same approach to cooking fish = keep it simple. i mean, a piece of salmon with a a sweet and tangy bbq sauce on it is tasty, but it might as well be a chicken breast.

so i decided to mix things up a bit and saute cod fillets with herb salt. i used the cast iron skillet, which in hindsight was not wise. 2 problems: (1) the fillets were skinned, which meant when they got close to be done they simply crumbled, and (2) i didn't use enough oil in the pan, and man those things stuck like you wouldn't believe (and i have a really good non-stick surface on my skillet).

fail.

Cod is way too delicate for sautéing, sorry to hear it Chris. Hope it still tasted ok.

battered and fried cod is one of the few seafood items I enjoy prepared like that, but man do I ever.
