Grilled Striper
We're experimenting with various ways to cook Striper this fall. Up tonight is a 21 inch Striper cooked on the Weber.

This gutted and headed fish was stuffed with lemon, thyme, oregano and salt. It also had a good rubdown with olive oil and salt.

After a good searing on both sides it was removed from direct and cooked to 130 degrees in its thickest part on the grill.

The fish and its skin were moist and delicious! The only issue was a little under cooking in its thickest part on the vertebrae. Next time we'll go 140 degrees on a fish this size.

Striper Greek Style
This is my wife's favorite way to cook fish. With the fish and veggies trading flavored it's really delicious.

Can confirm about the blow toads! Like most folks I was wary about what I had heard, but those are the Japanese ones that are poisonous. I'm keeping every catch from here on out. Not bad at all.

AlgernonWanted to really taste it so just a little oil, salt, and pepper in a frying pan. William, Im looking at the second weekend in May. I usually drive out on the sand at a place called Freeman Park and camp Friday to Sunday. But there's a pier right at the entrance. If you guys don't have four wheel drive I can definitely meet you at the pier. Let me know what you're thinking but May is my best bet.

This picture honestly speaks for itself. But for the record these are some large Sea Mullet cleaned and ready for the frying pan that was caught this week at Avon Pier.

Tonight's two post are a little different. This is the other side of all those Black Drum. "Preparation"!! Notice the fillet skills which are getting better with each fish. As you can see the nice cut with ribs still intact on the carcass. Nothing like a Perfectly cut Drum fillet to prepare your favorite way. Finished product coming with next post...

TURF NO SURF! Jumped on a head boat out of Brielle this morning with visions of Cod & Pollock filling my mind. After an hour and a half ride to some wrecks, we started fishing. It wasn't my day. I caught a bunch of Dogfish, a few Ocean Pout, a short Tautog, a Mackerel, and a Herring, the last two were used for cut bait. Only a handful of Cod & Pollock were boated by others, as well as a few Keeper Tog. Any time I take,a party boat trip, I always have steak at home as,a backup plan. Today it's coming in handy.

JimmyA fish plan always has backup up plans and this one looks mighty tasty! If I was home I'd be reaching into my freezer for some beef two. I fished with the #nccrew today and they came up short but I totally skunked.

I usally don't get to cook alot of fish whole due to the fact that my wife does not like to see the head and eyes on the plate. But sometimes I just do it anyway.

Here is a whole Tautog cooked over a bed of asparagus, with shallots, lemon and thyme, in a butter and wine sauce.

I love a good Striped bass meal. Jasmine rice, mixed vegetables, and brown stew/steamed striper...that's my definition of a complete meal. For the guys that catch and release ONLY will never have their taste buds stimulated with this fine meal. I caught, and released more fish this season than I have in the last four years. I just love the process of from catch to the dinner table though. Plus the fact that my wife only eats fish keeps at least one bass (stripers, porgy, sea bass, black fish, and Cod are all she will eat from what I catch) in the freezer for us to enjoy. Eat fish live longer...Stay Bent!

I finally managed to catch a 22 inch striper a couple of days ago. I know its not a large fish by most striper fisherman's standards but its mid-size for me since I target 20-24 inch fish for our table.

We like to stew the gilled heads of fish this size for broth and extend the catch with some fish stew. This is the first time we've tried a tomato based stew since since we generally go with a Greek egg, lemon and rice recipe.

In addition to the fish and light tomato broth, this stew included, potatoes, carrots, corn and edamame. Spices included paprika, white pepper and fresh fennel. It really came out delicious!

I've heard a lot about the virtues of the Mediterranean fish Bronzini. I finally bought some from the fish market to give it a try..

My wife who is a first generation Greek-American prepared it plaki style which is basically baked fish with vegetables.

These fish where cooked with onions, tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini and Mediterranean herbs. The fish was fantastic and I can't wait to try it with our stripers, white perch and croakers.

Yesterday's spec prepared Spartan style. Ready to be baked on a bed of garlic, onions, lemon slices and bay leaves with olive oil, lemon juice, white wine, salt, pepper and oregano.

Sopped up the "latholemono" pan juices with good bread... a small fish went a long way.

Catch of the day, Tautog. AKA Blackfish.
Half prepared fried, the other half was pan fried with lemon pepper, served with rice pilaf and green beans. Serve with a cold beverage of your choice.
