    Fresh Fish

    Anyone know if you can still get fresh fish off the guys by the police station ( in noord) at side of road. How about fish huts?

    we bought fresh fish at LINGS (well they told us it was fresh ;-) )
    we got grouper filet
    approx $5 for a 1 lb
    and it was in a greenish marinade.....the fish person employed by Lings told me it was a marinade with olive oil and spices.
    we baked it at 375 degree for about 20 minutes
    it was MARVELOUS.
    really outstanding.
    i would not hesitate to buy fresh fish from Lings.
    also got a 1 lb wahoo, put it in the freezer and forgot it was there :-(
    that too was about $5 a 1 lb

    i hope that the housekeeper from lacabana enjoyed it.

    Hello Gianni,

    The fisherman is still there under the tree in his white van selling his catch of the day. The fish is very good and is reasonably priced.

    Regards,

    Oh, Andrea, shame on you! Wahoo is my most favorite fish in the whole wide world...I probably would have been salivating by the freezer every night! LOL!! I take that back...it would never have made it to the freezer - I would've cooked it the same day. LOL!

    If you have a car, there is a local fisherman bar(called Zeerovers) in the Flying Fishbone area, and you can get catch of the day for $8.00 a Kilo.

    Andrea, we had the same grouper from Lings (it was called grouper in french sauce). I wrapped it in foil and cooked it on the grill. It was EXCELLENT! We tried the grouper in spanish sauce from Lings as well. It was also very good. I also cooked a snapper from them on the grill - very tasty. In their gourmet section they had a garlic oil that I marinated the snapper and made garlic toast with. ALL of these were very cheap and very good!

    I'm not a big fish lover, I mean shrimp, lobster yes, but what is Wahoo? I see everyone here always writing about it, is it a white fish, does it taste fishy, thinking I would like to try my next trip

    wahoo is a mild, dense whitefish
    no fishy taste

    if you like grouper or haddock or mild white fish, you will like wahoo.

    Love, love, love...LOVE Wahoo!! I like it because it's meatier than grouper - I like to think that it's similar to halibut (which I also love!)
