SEAfood

I am no food critic nor do I posses much of any culinary skills. My husband drew the short straw in that category. I’ve just now mastered spaghetti and enchiladas. I can follow the recipe and usually make it edible but I lack creativity in the cooking department. Which is odd since everything else I do takes some moderate amount of creativity. Moving onward…

I have however had success in cooking seafood and in finding some very yummy seafood creations along the way, both in the great state of Texas and travels to the east coast. I spent last weekend down in Port O’Connor to do some serious fishing with my dad. By serious I mean no little boys to get bored on the boat or repeatedly ask to go to the beach. On Saturday we decided we’d BBQ some fish for dinner and that some stuffed shrimp and crab would go well with the fish. Previously known as Raby’s down in Port O’Connor now owned by Beacon 44 you can purchase yourself some tasty food there all frozen and ready to cook. Shrimp Diablo, crab stuffed shrimp and many other items. My dad made an attempt to keep it half-way healthy so we also stopped and grabbed a myriad of vegetables to slice up and steam on the pit as well.

The Veggies

Sliced up a red and green pepper, squash, zucchini, red onion, mushrooms, and potatoes added a bit of olive oil and a stick of butter. Covered it with foil and put it on the pit for a good while until the cook down and get very soft. You can add some cajun seasonings to give it a bit of a kick and some flavor. Extremely delicious!

We cooked all the seafood on the BBQ pit also. Cooked the shrimp and fish in olive oil in pans and the shrimp Diablo like this –

Shrimp Diablo

This is shrimp stuffed with cream cheese, a slice of japaleno and wrapped in bacon. These didn’t last long. I was too busy eating to take any more photos of the food… It’s always an enjoyable weekend at the coast fishing with my dad. Even at 30 years of age I’m still his little girl, but at least I can bait my own hook now.
