    Ymm, Seafood

    Why? Two reasons: 1) because it's dinner time and 2) we're headed to the coast late this week and both involve hunger and the need for recipes.

    If youíre getting your seafood out of the water the same day, cooked simpler the better (unless it has been floating or washed up on shore).

    Same day. Fish would be grilled with a brushing of olive oil and lightly spiced. Shrimp boiled or sauteed. Crab, likely fresh but not same day; crabcakes lightly sauteed and probably 95% lump crab.

    Last time we were at the coast (Wilmington area, December) we got a giant monkfish filet and my wife broiled it. Very, very tasty fish.

    Salmon is our go-to, but we're flexible.

    I won't argue with salmon anytime anyplace. But, there is much more fresh seafood to be had on the NC coast.

    Now, when I lived in Seattle, salmon was cheap, fresh, and absolutely delicious every time.

    I am simple when it comes to salmon. Lemon, salt pepper. Ideally cooked in such a way that the skin comes out crispy... Pair it with asparagus and maybe couscous.

    Man, really bugging me more and more that I don't have fresh seafood here at the moment.

    Our go-to seafood market claims it is; will verify this weekend.

    Agree with the NC coast seafood variety; we should try more.

    Having roasted asparagus with ribs tonight along with a rice pilaf. We often pair our salmon with roasted redskin potatoes and roasted veggies (yellow squash, zucchini and onions).

    Red drum is a great local fish, great flavor, easy to cook.

    Put your blue crab on ice for 15 minutes. They won't pinch you.
    Grab back of shell peel forward.
    Wash inside get guts out .peel the deadman(lungs) off.return to ice.
    After they are clean.

    Pot you can fit one crab in.
    Half 3/4 with oil .bring to 350

    Big bowl of butter milk.
    Bowl of flour.mix zatarans or old bay about 50/50 . Some garlic powder too.
    Dip a crab in butter milk roll in flour.
    Reapeat.do every crab twice.
    Fry for 3 to 5 minutes each .

    Throw them on a plate with paper towels.
    As many crab as you feel like eating.
    Eat like you normaly would eat a blue crab.

    Geechie fried crab .
    Its a good recipe.
