BEWARE: Please beware of the guys in the street selling boat charters. If you wait till the day you are fishing and go to the dock where your boat is many times people will mislead you to another boat or dock trying to put you on a boat that was not meant for you. You need to have a person guide you to your boat, who is from a reputable charter company. This way there is no confusion or misleading. Please remember when renting Sport fishing boats in Cabo that you rent your boat from reputable and established business. Walk into a fishing fleet office and ask questions about what you are getting and what are the costs? You don't want to rent boats from vendors in the streets and you do not want to book through shady websites offering you the world. Check through travel forums about reputable fishing fleets to deal with. Look for testimonials about the fleet your booking, your charter with. Ask about what will the boat be supplying? Will it include beverages or lunches? How much does it cost to fillet your catch? Check to see if charter boat is insured? Ask about getting your catch smoked? Check cost of a fishing license. These are just a few things to consider when booking your charter boat. We will be talking more about this in the next weeks fishing report. Until next time good fishing and we hope to see you in Cabo soon. Come by the office here in Cabo and get all the latest up to date fishing report.
FROM THE ADMIRALS KITCHEN!
JC'S OVEN ROASTED MACKEREL RECIPE:
3 large garlic cloves
1 tsp salt, more for later
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh dill
1 1/2 lb whole Mackerel, cleaned and gutted (but with head)
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Early Harvest extra virgin olive oil
2-3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and set a roasting sheet pan inside to warm.
Using a mortar and pestle, crush garlic with salt until smooth. Add coriander and cumin and continue crushing. Mix in parsley and dill.
Pat the fish dry, inside and out. Remove the dark vein that runs along the back of the cavity, if it's still there. And if needed, run your knife along the cavity to open it up some more. Salt generously inside and on both sides outside, then place on a lightly oiled piece of foil that is large enough to enclose the fish.
Stuff the fish cavity with lemon slices and the garlic and herb mixture you just prepared. Drizzle generously with olive oil.
Fold the foil over the fish lengthwise, tightly closing the top seam to trap the steam. Place the foiled fish on top of the hot sheet pan and bake in the 350 degrees F heated-oven for 30-40 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.
Remove from heat and add the lemon juice. Serve immediately with suggested sides and salads (see ingredient list).
JC'S TROPICAL SANGRIA
1 bottle 750ml white wine (such as Sauvignon Blanc)
6 ounces pineapple juice
1/3 cup triple sec
