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.
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.
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...

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...
