Deviled eggs are one of those foods I have a hard time controlling myself with. I’ve been known to eat a dozen at a sitting, and even though I know I’ll feel ill afterwards, I can’t stop eating them. These deviled eggs, made with smoked salmon, are especially good.
Some days you remember forever. This tuna fishing trip was one of them. I spent a couple days, 40 miles off North Carolina, in search of tuna. We found them. Oh yes, people, we found them… and with the trimmings of those great fish, I made these Sicilian meatballs.
Goa is a part of India that was once controlled by Portugal, and this curry is an amalgam of the two cultures. Any firm fish will work here, but I tend to use lingcod or striped bass.
Salmon salad. Pretty ordinary, right? My version, as you might expect, comes with a twist: It’s made by grilling everything but the main fillets, then stripping the meat for this salad. Thrifty, and awesome.
When you catch a big fish, don’t forget the “collar,” the meaty bit right behind the gills. Marinated and grilled, it is a spectacular part of the fish.
One of the bedrock skills you should have as an angler — or, really, anyone who cooks fish. If you can make a good fish stock, you can get more out of the fish you bring home and boost the flavors in your seafood cooking.
Clams steamed in a spicy Spanish tomato sauce. This dish is a knockout. Eat it with a fork in one hand, a hunk of crust bread in another. A damn good appetizer or light dinner.
Ah, the unloved bluefish. I grew up catching and eating these oily, oceanic piranhas, and I love them still. Smoked bluefish is one of my favorite smoked fish, largely because I can then make this pate from it.
