Is for Mouthwatering deliciousness!
I know.. that is a Loui♥ word..
I conjured it up in a blonde moment..
a perfect description of me enjoying a favorite seafood delicacy!
Don't get me wrong..
this Southern gal was raised on seafood..
My Daddy was famous for his Mullet Fish Fry.
That man could COOK!
This was an EVENT of the greatest magnitude..
Word spread like wildfire..no cell phones or internet back then..
Folks would come from miles around to savor his crispy, golden fried mullet.
Crispy on the outside, flaky on the inside,
served piping hot with French fries,Cole slaw, and his Hushpuppies!
A slice of sweet onion, lemon and a bottle of ketchup made it all complete.
(some folks enjoy a side of grits with theirs..but not me!)
An ice cold beverage of choice to wash it all down..
and if there was any room left , he always made Lemon Meringue pie..
I have a favorite place for fried mullet..
...Hunt's Oyster Bar..
and the friendlist staff..all family owned and operated.
Rick shucking for the camera..
M.. is also for another favorite seafood I adore..
Mussels..which I only learned to eat while living in Spain..
Mussels are washed, debearded, and any cracked or open shells are discarded.
A mixture of chopped onions, garlic, parsley is sauteed in butter in a dutch oven
White wine and lemons are tossed into the pot, then the mussels are steamed for 5 minutes.
(any shells not opened are immediately discarded.!)
serve with white wine, crusty French bread for dipping into the sauce!
Now mosey on over to Jen's Unglazed for moreMmmmm.. Mouthwatering foods...
