A simple dish made with the catch of the day. My son came up with this one to share with the blog readers after some Thames River fishing.
Fishing is a nice relaxing way to spend time during the summer. We have a large pond behind our house which is a great spot for catching big mouth bass. But, I prefer eating the salt water fish caught along the coast.
My son, Devon, spent the last two days of summer doing Thames River fishing with his grandfather before starting high school. They went out in a small boat and caught some porgies which are great tasting fish.
Devon filleted four fish himself and grilled them for him and his father today at lunch while I was working. They took some photos along the way. So, I thought I would share their recipe on this site.
I was pretty impressed because my son dressed up the plate like a true food blogger. Who knows, maybe he will be the one to take over the blog from me after I retire.
My son does seem to like cooking a lot more than my daughter. And, he loves to spend the summer Thames River fishing with friends and family.
Devon is also big into crabbing. It’s something he does with a friend late in the evening along the Niantic River in East Lyme, CT.
Fresh blue water crabs are great eating. Devon’s favorite dish to make after a night of crabbing is Crab Imperial which is a recipe he shared over at All Natural Ideas.
