Sebastian charter fishing catchin' n' cookin'

Flounder fishing in the Sebastian inlet to me is one of the most boring types of fishing there is. That being said when you catch em it is well worth it. Such a delicious, thin, white fish that is perfect for stuffing.  I'm gonna give you my favorite recipe right here!


-2 Flounder filets

-8 oz can of lump crab meat

-2 slices of bacon

-1/4 yellow onion chopped

-1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs

-1/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs

-1 egg

-1/4 cup parmigiana cheese

-2 tablespoons mayonnaise

-1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 

-juice of 1 lemon

-favorite Cajun seasoning

Pompano are a very fun fish to catch but even better to eat. During the winter time they push in through Sebastian inlet and onto the flatds. This year the pompano fishing has been exceptional and we have been slaying them! People always ask me how to prepare it and this is the recipe that I give them.


Whole pompano

2 cloves of garlic

Extra virgin olive oil

1 lemon

Bundle of thyme

Everglades heat seasoning (or favorite Cajun seasoning)



If you caught the pompano yourself and not on a Filet show fishing charter you will have to prepare the fish t...

     Fresh Wahoo is one of my all time favorite fish to eat. We catch it so rarely out of Sebastian Inlet that when we get one it is a real treat!  The main thing to avoid with Wahoo is that you don't want to over cook it.  It can get dried out very easily and it becomes unappetizing.  The best way to avoid overcooking is by searing it.  I like it completely rare on the inside but you can cook it close to medium and it will still be delicious.  It doesn't get any more simple than this.

This is a very simple and quick recipe, which can be perfect after a long day out on the water.  If you like fried catfish you will love this version made with snapper.  Sheepshead, seabass, porgy and triggerfish would all be very good substitutes as well.  We are frying whole filets, so a fish that is 14-20 inches is ideal.


Snapper Filets (or other white fish)

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

1/2 tsp cayenne

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1/2 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika

1/2 cup milk

1 l...

One of my favorite ways to prepare fish is to make ceviche.  In the summer we catch a lot of cobia out of Sebastian inlet and its perfect for this application.  I always prefer a nice firm fish with white meat but the most important thing is that its very fresh. Ceviche is a way to "cook" your fish with acid instead of heat and it imparts a very unique flavor and texture on the fish. Cobia is my go to when it comes to making ceviche but triggerfish and black seabass are great too. This recipe has a lot of ingredients and is time consuming but is well worth it...

Hey guys, my name is Justin Ambrosio and I'm the captain of Filet Show Fishing Charters out of Sebastian Fl.

Captain Justin with a nice gag grouper!

     I'm creating this recipe blog because on nearly every fishing charter I have my guests ask what the best way to prepare the type of fish they caught.  Having worked in the restaurant business for 15 years I more than know my way around the kitchen and I like to put my own unique and healthy (most of the time) spin on things. This will hopefully be the answer to all of your questions as over the...
