Grilled fish


  • Fresh fish
  • Salt
  • Spices (optional)
  • Oyster sauce (optional)
  • Onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Lemon cut in a circle

After you catch your fresh fish you can prepare it immediately for you to grill. Seasoned it with salt and you can add other spices if you like.

Fried Fish

  • Butter
  • Cooking oil
  • Salt

Make sure before pan-frying your fish that your oil is hot but not scorching so that you can avoid it sticking on the pan or be undercooked. When your fish is golden brown already then this is a sign that it is cooked already. Don’t overcook your fried fish it will become tough and not juicy.

You can serve it together with your favorite wine.

  • 2 cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 cups white wine
  • pinch of salt to taste
  • 1 bay leaf2 (3 ounces) fresh tilapia fillets

Sprinkle a pinch of salt over the cucumber pieces; allow sitting for an hour. Strain the liquid from the cucumbers.

Mix the whipping cream, mustard, and tarragon in a saucepan over medium heat; add the cucumbers and simmer in 8 minutes.

Pour the wine into a large skillet over medium heat. Season with salt and add the Bay leaf. Bring the wine to a boil. Lay the tilapia into the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the tilapia flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes.Β
