And joining me today is our guest chef, Henry Ford, and he is with Seven Seas Seafood. You want to know certified seafood right here in South Carolina, right here in Murrell’s Inlet. And he’s got a great fish recipe for us today. Henry.
How are you?
Brother, it’s great to see you.
Yes sir, thanks for having me.
I need to get you and your boss there behind reels, huh?
We need to catch some fish.
We try, yes sir.
Well, man, well tell me what we got going on.
Today, we got some fresh, local Wreck fish.
Now, how far out are you guys going to catch these?
You can go anywhere from 50 to 60 miles offshore.
No kidding. So you’re going to the gulf stream?
Yes sir, yeah.
Oh, wow! Now is this pretty much a bottom fish?
It’s a bottom fish, yes sir.
There you go, okay. Low them down, wind them up. I get it
That’s it, that’s it.
All right, man, let me shut up and let’s get cooking.
All right, so I’ve got some of our house blackening seasoning.
We’re just going to coat this on both sides.
Oh, wow, that stuff smells great.
And we make this in house at Seven Seas.
Mmmm, okay. You know you guys, over here on the coast just have such, I don’t know. All the things that you make of certified South Carolina products for all the folks. It’s such a pleasure, okay. And folks don’t really understand it until they come here as tourists or whatever.
That’s it, yes sir.
All right, so we’ve got a little olive oil here, heated up in the pan. And we’re going to get it good and hot. And we’re just going to blacken it for about, maybe three to four minutes on each side.
All right, Henry, now the fish is, man, looking good.
Oh yeah, it’s delicious.
That’s our finished product there.
And we’re just going to sit that on the plate.
Ah, now what’s next? I know you always got stuff next.
Yes sir, we’re going to make a cheese sauce with everything, the oil and everything. So what we’ve got here is some half and half.
Ah, heavy cream, huh?
Yes sir. We’re going to go with some shredded cheddar cheese.
There ain’t a soul that doesn’t like cheese.
No, not at all.
There you go.
All right, and then we’re going to give that a stir around, and it clicking up real good.
Yes sir, we got some of our in house fish stock we make there.
Oh really, wow.
We’ll add a little of that. Seven Seas, we make that in stock.
Okay, here let me see that.
It’s good stuff.
Seafood Market, Murrell’s Inlet, Seven Seas, really good.
You want a shot of it?
No, no, that’s okay. I’ll taste it in the cheese.
Tomatoes, a little color for the tomatoes. Lemon juice.
Squirt of lemon juice.
Yeah, man, add a little sour to it.
Yep, and we’re going just give it another stir. Let it thicken up.
Wreck fish caught at 1,400 feet out in the gulf stream.
Wow, that’s fantastic. And brought all the way back?
All the way back. That’s a haul.
The Seven sea’s at Murrell’s… Now we’ve got what looks like mashed potatoes.
Yep. Got some fresh asparagus. We’re going to add our cheese sauce on top.
This right here we’re going to drizzle that on top like so.
You know, there is not a fool alive that wouldn’t like cheese sauce on fresh fish.
Yep, and mashed potatoes and asparagus. That compliments it very well.
Oh my goodness, yeah.
All right, from there, we’re going to just add a little bit of color. We’ve got some more fresh vegetables, some more tomatoes.
Oh yes, certified.
We’ve got carrots we’re just going to place on there. A little bit of fresh squash there. We’ve got some parsley to, kind of, give it a little bit of color.
Oh, yeah, there you go. Listen.
And I like to get a little fancy sometimes, so we’re going to go back with the cheese and we’re just going to.
Ah, there you go. I call that the trail of tears.
Because, by the time you get done eating, you going to be crying.
Because it’s so good.
