While heading to the Cucumber Marina in Belize City to collect Tony and Jane and Rikki (our next guest on On Delay), we caught a fish…a REALLY BIG fish. Pete took nearly 30 minutes to reel this in, commanding me at the helm with Wickey as his backup.
The rod and reel did great. Our gaff, it looks little with this size fish on the end.
We were still 45 minutes from the marina and needed to keep cool (the fish, that is).
Processing took almost 2 hours on the dock after we were safety tied up.
Steaks were cut with the help of the machete and a large hammer.
Kingfish is delicious in: fish soup, ceviche, sashimi, curry, steaks (grilled and fried – at a local restaurant), sandwiches (with spicy coleslaw and horseradish), “sous-vided” and in other ways that I am probably overlooking.
