Scoot,

Not sure if this is answering your question, but here goes.

The best, quickest, and safest way to thaw out your fish
quickly is to place the fish in a plastic bag, then place it
in a tub of water with a faucet just barely running into the tub.

The just barely running water will circulate water around the
frozen fish while safely thawing it.

FYI: This method prevent bacteria back up on the surface of you thawing fish (or any proteins).
Leaving meat or fish on the counter to thaw is a dangerous practice.

I have to suggest tempura battered lobster balls.

Thaw the lobster out, cut the tail meat into little chunks (square inch, or so), soak in some buttermilk with some spices, then tempura batter and fry up. So good.

I'm looking for the recipe for the tacos you made at the Steve Green event. Just how you treated & grilled the fish. That was soooo good

Great Grilled Tacos??

It was easy. First, don't over cook the fish, then from the grill into a baste bath.
The baste was lemon juice and olive oil (2parts lemon, 1part olive oil).

Finally a homemade pico de gallo with grilled peppers and some cabbage, then you're in there!!

Fish Ball Recipe...

Years ago, my VW camper broke down on the way to
Scorpion Bay on a surf trip. We stayed in Guerrero
Negro where I had my first Mexican Fish Ball soup.

Here's a super close recipe for those meat balls.
2lbs fish, finely chopped (mush)
1 lb chopped onion
1 bundle chopped cilantro
6 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cumin, salt, pepper
3 eggs, beaten

Mix all the ingredients and refrigerate for an hour.
With wet hands to roll fish balls no larger than a golf ball.

Boil them in your fish soup for 15 mins and you're good to go!!

Yanni, the fish was pre-marinated, I remember you said some Cumin, and what else? Also, the sause, what was it? Good stuff dude.

Marinade Vs Dry Rub

Alan,

The fish was "pre-seasoned" with a dry rub consisting
of 1 part cumin, 1 part salt, 1 part pepper.

I could have marinaded (wet rubbed) the fish, but
since I bathed it in a baste--after grilling--then threw
Pico De Gallo on top of it in the taco, there was no
need of a marinade.

Remember, marinade has a liquid associated with it.

Hope that helps. Yanni

the right amount to sweetness to offset any heat from hot peppers (and I love hot spicy foods)

Peruvian are crazy about their ceviche. It's as common there as hot dogs are for us.
The distinctive food in Peruvian ceviche is the Aji amarillo chili. It's bright orange,
hot and spicy--but fruity as well. Aji amarillo is used in Peruvian dishes, anything from
a rice flavoring, to sauces for meats or fish. But especially for Peruvian ceviche.
Actually, this sounds like a great vid-recipe for FishermansBelly.

Favorite Ceviche Fish? Has to be White Fish (funny I just caught a couple of those yesterday...)


Bob,
Which fish makes for better grav-lox? Wahoo would make a better grav-lox than
Sierra. Here's why, wahoo fillets are thicker and would slice/present better than the much thinner fillets of Sierra.
When you mentioned Peruvian, the first thing that came to my mind was "Huacatay"!! It's kind of like a pesto, but tastes unbelievable! They also use the aji amarillo chili in that sauce for spice. I swear, I could put that sauce on just about ANYTHING and it would taste bomb. I always order the Lomo Saltado and put a ton of that sauce on it. You should make a Yellowtail Saltado (with home made huacatay)!

Thanks Yanni

Thanks for all the recipes Yanni. You are definitely responsible for "I never knew you could cook" reactions from my girlfriend and mom.

This sound really good. How about a recipe for fish soup.

Thanks for all your recipes. You have inspired me to cook my catch in many different ways instead of the same old way
