Apparently a big shipment of fish didn’t arrive in the Bahamas, so the what did the chefs do?

They went fishing yesterday.

And caught two 45-pound mahi mahi and one 80-pound wahoo….which is our dinner tonight!

When you ain’t got no fancy smoker in the Bahamas?

You make one outta an old kitchen rack, plastic wrap and tin foil.  This is the back of Chef Ted Reader, Toronto, who’s going to smokin’ some meat all day today so that tomorrow we can have Confit of Smoked Duck Leg with a crust of Smoked Pulled Pork and Fois Gras served with an Apple Brown Betty BBQ Sauce

I’m hosting a Club Med Food Bloggers Bash in the Bahamas (okay, it’s really their Food and Wine Festival) and brought along some friends.

    1) I’m totally jealous of where you are.
    2) I’m totally jealous of what you’re eating.
    3) I’m glad i can read your site finally, because any site with the word “steamy” in it is blocked at work!

    Wonderful! Can’t wait to see pictures and hear all about the fun. Because I’m sure there’s lots of it going on!

  3. Peter

    Ahhh, nothing prettier than the sight of fresh caught fish & seafood. You’ve got quite the sweet gig down there in the Bahamas…enjoy!

  4. Janet

    I wish I could head out to my backyard and catch some fish. There’s probably a roadrunner or two… maybe a tumbleweed ;-)

  5. Laurin

    Glad you are having such a great, and tasty, time. It’s a good time to be away from the Tampa area as it’s cold and extremely windy here!

  6. Simone (junglefrog)

    Wow, those fish look amazing! I better not show them to my boyfriend (an avid fisherman) as he will be incredibly jealous!! Looks like you’re having some fun over there!

    Mmm… The fish look great (and so do the cocktails @ Diane’s site). Hope you’re having an excellent time! I can’t help but be jealous when it’s completely blizzarding where I am right now.

    (On a pedantic note, I looked up the gorgeous fish on the main page on Wiki, and found it’s a mahimahi. So, shouldn’t the note be- caught 1 80 lb mahi^2 and 2 45 lb wahoos? Or at least that’s what it looks like from the pictures)

  8. Tina

    Ooh! I’m so totally jealous of you, but like Natalie said plz take lots of pics and enjoy yourself!! I’d love to have a bite of tht fish, yum!!

  9. Murasaki Shikibu

    Freshy caught fish just tastes so much better than fish that isn’t…well, so fresh! I hated fish until I went fishing with my grandfather and we barbecued the fish on the beach. :)

    I’m so jealous! It’s COLD here in NYC. Snowy, wind, and just plain cold. Hope you’re having a grand time, and I look forward to seeing great pictures from you.
