Grouper is an especially tasty fish. It has a great deal of action as you try to reel one in.

Everyone caught Grouper except me. I caught a lovely french snapper and Captain Joey sent it back to the sea.IMG_3579

Cooking fish is very intimidating and Todd takes over on those nights.

While visiting Todd’s Dad, Lee and Nancy in Florida,  Lee showed me his simple fish preparation technique.

It was a relaxing and enjoyable week getting to know Lee’s beautiful bride.

Nancy is elegant, warm and kind and baits her own hook!

As you can see from the photo we all had a wonderful time together.



We caught grouper about 5 miles from Cayo Costa Island.

Grouper have become the most popular food fish in the United States.IMG_3683

Captain Joe’s the family favorite for fishing, shelling and sightseeing in general.        www.captainjoescharters.com

We are so grateful for phenomenal Captain Joe Burnsed.

Thank you so much for an extraordinary day at sea fishing, Dad!

A remarkable day with an amazing catch!


Lee’s recipe is very simple.


Preheat 400 degree oven.

Place fish or grouper on a cookie sheet with foil.

Drizzle melted butter and sprinkle Old Bay Seasoning.  Bake 10 minutes.

Serve with sweet corn and asparagus.
