Fish Recipes: For Locally Caught Fish in Florida

Locally Caught: Florida’s Fish Recipes

At this South Florida boat club, Memorial Day weekend is prime fishing time. The cobia, mahi, and blackfin tuna are biting. And what do these three fish also have in common? They are incredibly delicious to eat. To prepare a fresh fish caught the same day on your Gulfstream Boat Club rental, in the waters off Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, or Palm Beach, is to sample the best South Florida has to offer. Looking for amazing fish recipes? GBC brings you the best recipes to put your culinary skills to the test.

Cobia Recipes

Cobia is a sustainable fish, with sweet, almost nutty taste that needs very little additional flavor. Cobia can be broiled, grilled or sautéed. We at the boat club like to eat this South Florida fish as soon as possible, with as little done to it as possible. Publix Aprons actually has great recipes, and many of them are perfect for locally caught fish. Here are two recipes for cobia: one super simple, and one just the tiniest bit fancier if you’ve got someone in the house who requires a little butter and bread crumb on their fish.

Mahi mahi Recipes

Mahi-mahi is another South Florida fish with a mild, sweet flavor, and we at Gulfstream Boat Club can’t get enough of it. You asked for Fish Recipes, we think Mahi. It’s got a nice texture and large, moist flakes, and is sturdy enough for a sandwich, or fish tacos. The skin is thick and should be removed before cooking. Try this healthy Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Avocado-Chile Salsa from Myrecipes.com. With ingredients like avocado, lime, and serrano chiles, this dish is pure Palm Beach, and is perfect for a Memorial Day party.

Blackfin Tuna Recipes

Gulfstream Boat Club reports that in South Florida, it’s a great year for catching blackfin tuna. And we can’t think of a better way to serve it than rubbed with barbecue spices, with a side of local, in-season mango. This recipe for Barbecue-Seared Blackfin Tuna from Florida blogger Suwannee Rose takes tuna steaks to the next level with an avocado sauce. One of our favorite fish recipes for sure!
