Hook’ Em Cook’ Em
I have 3 passions in life…. family, fishing and food! It’s a great life when they all come together.
Here I share with you all our favorite recipes. Most of the recipes are fish related, some of them are just good eats. We encourage our customers to share their favorite recipes with us. Send us an email with your recipe, our crew will try it, if they like it - we’ll add it to our site. We are in the process of adding all the recipes that were on the old site. I hope to have it finished by the end of the year… after all, I still have to allow time for fishing!

YOU ASKED: FRESH FISH vs. FROZEN
It is always to best to catch your fish FRESH! But if you have to purchase fish from a store, take this into consideration: Most fish are cleaned and frozen aboard a boat, what you’re looking at in the fish section - even if arrayed beautifully on ice - is often frozen fish that has been thawed. Frozen fruits and vegetables are grown in season and likewise frozen when they’re at their best.
Buy the bag of frozen fillets of tuna, salmon and flounder in the frozen-foods aisle and thaw them yourself. It cost about 40% less and it’s frozen only once, so you’re getting better quality. If produce is out of season, frozen tends to be cheaper than import. Always ask, “Has this been frozen?” And never take it home an refreeze it - Blah! Believe it or Not, Trader Joe’s has some beautiful frozen Fujian Albacore steaks, you can get two nice quality pieces for about $5 bucks. Traders Albacore is great as a steak and it’s actually cheaper to cook it up for Tuna Mac Salad than buying over processed can goods!
