Fishing is a pretty big deal around these parts. And by parts, I pretty much mean the whole state of Texas. From fresh water rivers, lakes and coastal inlets, there’s a ton of fishing that can happen in the warm summer months.
It was during these hot months that I learned how to fish with my dad and granddaddy. It’s how my family still likes to spend time together. And it’s how many of you make memories, too.
The best part of fishing? Fun in the sun with family. The second best? Cooking up the catch of the day!
This recipe will work with multiple kinds of fish. I prefer to work with a fish that doesn’t flake too easily, but will break down when cooking. Mahi Mahi and Tilapia are a few of my favorites, because they aren’t super fishy as well.
This is a great, light and filling meal for the hot summer months and a great way to show off your fishing skills. I hope you are enjoying the warm summer days on the water. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
