Unusual catch and how to prep it for some good eating!

November 10th, 2020|Capt Art's Blog, Ocean to Galley Recipes|

Angler Dave Bell caught a fish recently that we don’t see often. It’s a Pargo! We checked with our fish experts at Fisherman’s Processing for some reommendations. The rub (and other great products) can be purchased here: Cajun Blackened Rub

“We see these fish occasionally, maybe a couple of times a year. I would either dust with panko crumbs and fry it, or pan sear it in butter and our Cajun Blackened Rub.”

Check out those teeth!
