My brother Jake took his son Joseph fishing the other day. For the first time he could reel in his first fish. Some kids catch small brim with hotdogs as their first. This kid had bigger goals to reach. His father threw out artificial tied to 20lb bullbuster mono leader and 20lb braid. After about 10 cast he got a bump. He quickly set the hook then we he found it wasn't a monster bull he handed over the rod. His son Joseph started reeling in with all his might. His dad guiding him along the way helping hold the rod so it don't take off with it. The picture says it all : kids love to fish! With every inch of line that was carefully put back on the spool with each turn of the handle a new found memory was made. A moment in time where nothing else mattered. A slot redfish is a great eater but he allowed Joseph to let it go : so he can understand conservation. A quick 2 minute fight on a rod and reel with father & son makes for a lifetime of cherished moments. Slot reds can make for a great recipe and is served everywhere down south. Below is a recipe I recommend to anyone wanting to cook it for their first time. Enjoy #TeamDorsal
- 4 redfish, snapper, trout, or grouper fillets (6 to 8 ounces each)
- 2 tablespoons Rustic Rub
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- Season the fish with 1 tablespoon of the rub. Combine the flour with 2 teaspoons of the rub in a shallow bowl. Mix together the egg, water, and the remaining 1 teaspoon rub in another bowl. Dredge the fish, first in the seasoned flour, then the egg mixture, then again in the flour, shaking off any excess.
- Heat the oil over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet. Panfry the fish for 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
- Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.
