I'm frying fish tonight for 4 Adults (2 Men/2 Women) a Hungry Teenager & a child. Is 3lbs enough fish (we're also having Fries, Corn, Salad). I hate to run out before everyone is full, but I really hate to thaw/cook too much 'cause nobody really likes it cold/leftover... My frozen portions are all ~1.5lbs except for a couple of ~3lb 'double' portions... I thought I read somewhere that ~.5lbs/fried fish/person was recommended...
There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!
Good luck - sounds like a nice meal. I just made a Cajun 'chowder' out of our boil leftovers. Yum!
Kidding, but I'd "offer eh kid" a burger instead and don't forget the baked beans ... Bush is just fine ... goes real good with the fries and corn. Potato or macaroni salad (toss a can of tuna in it also) is always a good choice instead of fries too.
I've not had good luck with freezing red grouper, but I don't have a vacuum sealer either, maybe that's why.
Have you tried using a food saver to freeze lobster tails? Our son said the spiny ridges poked holes in the bags. Just wondered if there is a trick to it.
It is some work but my buddy says that he cuts the spiney ridges off.
Thank you both...anxious to experiment...if we ever get enough lobster to put in the freezer again.
