Chef Tim Grandinetti, Twin City Quarter, Winston/Salem
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
And when something breaks in the Bahamas
Where am I?
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.
This colourful fish is absolutely superb! It seems you’re having a great sunny time in there 😉
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.
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 so jealous now . . . . heheheheh . . . great to see you having a great time . . . waiting to hear more! xxx
That fish is soooo beautiful. I’m so jealous.
nice post, thanks for sharing!
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!!
Oh those fish! They’re huge.
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)
Wow those look delicious – and you know it’s fresh!
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!
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!
I want to hear about every detail of everything you guys are doing! I am beyond jealous. What an amazing trip.
I wish I could head out to my backyard and catch some fish. There’s probably a roadrunner or two… maybe a tumbleweed 😉
The fresh caught fish will be so much better. I will be curious to see the smoked duck confit.
Ahhh, nothing prettier than the sight of fresh caught fish & seafood. You’ve got quite the sweet gig down there in the Bahamas…enjoy!
Wonderful! Can’t wait to see pictures and hear all about the fun. Because I’m sure there’s lots of it going on!
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!
My Big Green Egg is snickering about the kitchen rack smoker….I swear I can hear it;)
Have fun !
Looks like you’re well on your way to having a great trip! Beautiful setting and weather.
