billfisher88As a native Floridian I grew up in the water doing anything from fishing and surfing to kiteboarding. My father founded Cod & Capers Seafood in 1984 which has definitely shaped my path in life. I started working for Cod and Capers when I was 13 helping out on weekends and holidays. After attending business school and trying out the boating industry I have found myself right back where I started and loving it!
So many people are afraid of tackling whole fish. Not only can it be an easy way to cut down on dishes but it can also be extremely flavorful!
Start with one snapper around the two pound range and have it scaled, gutted, gilled and scored. Next I mixed a little fish tikka masala powder with a little olive oil so that it would spread over the fish well yet not overpower the delicate flavor of the fish. The snapper then went into a 350 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes. I also look for the lens to pop out of the eye (its almost like a built in timer!) The last couple minutes of cooking I like to turn on the broiler to get the skin nice and crispy! Garnish the fish with limes, add your sides and your ready to dig in!
