Folks, welcome, we’re here at Deck 383 in Wacca Wache Marina at beautiful Murrells Inlet, South Carolina and I’ve got the sous chef here at Deck 383 joinin’ me today. This is Felicia Davis. She is a former student at the International Culinary Institute here in Myrtle Beach and she’s gonna cook a fish recipe for ya. This is actually one that you did before you graduated, huh?
Well, good. Okay, tell me what we got today?
Today we have a pecan crusted mahi with a wild rice and an orange ginger soy reduction, all local.
Okay, Felicia, what are we gonna do here to this fish today?
We are going to pan sear it.
So I’m gonna go ahead and pick it up and get it for ya nice.
[Bob] That’s a nice cut of mahi.
[Felicia] Yes sir.
[Bob] Now, caught right here off the coast of South Carolina, right?
[Felicia] Yes sir.
[Bob] Yeah, there you go, okay, awesome. Now how long you gonna cook this for?
[Felicia] It’s about two minutes on each side.
[Felicia] Get it nice and golden.
[Bob] Just a nice brown, okay.
[Felicia] Yes sir.
Now once you get it cooked, are you gonna have to put it in the oven at all to finish it or is it gonna be ready to go?
You can absolutely put it in the oven if you like your fish a little bit more on the rare side, you can go ahead and take it right out of the pan and put it right there. I personally like to stick it in the oven just to get it nice and golden and fully cooked.
[Bob] Okay. Ah, yeah.
[Felicia] Nice and beautiful color.
[Bob] And look at the pecans there.
[Felicia] They add a nice little crunch to it.
[Bob] It does.
[Felicia] With that sweetness, like it’s just.
Now in order to cook this, olive oil, butter, which do you prefer?
I prefer butter, olive oil works great if you’re trying for a healthier alternative.
You can do any kind of nut with this. You don’t have to do just pecans. You can do macadamia nuts, cashews, peanuts, any nut you wanna think about, you can absolutely do it with this piece of fish.
But while that fish is renderin’ and cookin’ here, I gotta ask ya, this is your first job outta school.
Down here at Deck 383.
How do you like it?
I absolutely love it. There’s nothing quite like it. The owners are fantastic people. They really care about their employees and their customers. I’ve never heard anything bad about this place.
See, and every once and a while you can get out of the kitchen back there, okay, if Chef Jermaine’ll let ya and look at what you can cook over, huh?
Absolutely, we have wonderful sunsets. Great backdrops for dinners. If you wanna come in for lunch, beautiful weather, great breeze, there’s nothing quite like this place.
No there is not. All right, we about there, Felicia?
Okay. You know mahi mahi is a great fish, okay, and not everybody thinks that that’s only in Hawaii.
But that thing is caught right here off the coast of South Carolina so. Okay, now what are we puttin’ this on?
So we have a wild rice here that was also locally grown.
[Felicia] But we’re just gonna place this right on top.
[Bob] Oh wow.
[Felicia] Just like that. And then I’ve got a ginger soy orange reduction here.
[Felicia] That we’re just gonna drizzle right on top.
[Bob] Oh great.
[Felicia] Nice and around it.
[Felicia] And there we have it.
There we go, mahi mahi over local rice right here at Deck 383. Felicia, thank you so much and congratulations on your first job here.
Okay, what a better place. I’d love to go to work here every day.

Folks, welcome back to the show. Down here at Southern Woods Plantation. Quail is king and Chevy trucks and Kurt Newbruck of the Chevy marketing manager for the southeastern region’s gonna talk to ya about, well, a truck that I’m excited about and I love drivin’ it, is my 2020 HD Duramax High Country. Kurt, man I gotta tell ya, Chevrolet has hit the target on this one.
Hey, we’re excited about this truck.
Well, tell me, you know, there’s a lotta changes in this thing, okay. Not from just the ride and the drive but there’s a lotta stuff that you guys did to it.
Yeah, I mean you can see from behind us here, we’ve got a 19 and a 20 as well but bigger and bolder truck for sure. We got a new 66 gas engine with 464 foot pounds of torque. We got the new Duramax diesel with the 10 speed Allison transmission. That’s got 910 foot pounds of torque and it’ll tow up to 35,500 pounds and it’s made to work. You can see trailering mirrors are standard on all trims so it’s ready to do the job.
Well, and you know one of the great things about it, you gotta tell everybody about the camera system, okay? ‘Cause that is just, that is a great piece of addition.
Yeah, that advanced trailing technology, it’s got eight cameras and 15 views so hopefully you’ve seen the ads on TV but it does a great job and a lotta safety involved with that as well.
Well, you guys have outdone yourselves. I’ve enjoyed havin’ you guys down here behind these bird dogs, okay. It’s always a pleasure to hunt with ya and, you know, I just can’t thank Chevrolet and all you guys so much for what you do and the dealers, okay? Show casin’ the dealers on the show today. It was great to get them out. It’s, you know, they do and they love the outdoors, just like you.
They do and Chevy trucks is there every step of the way and we’re proud to be a partner.
Well, folks, I tell you what. That’s our show from Southern Woods down here. Got a question I’m gonna ask you before we go, what’s in your garage? If it’s not a Chevy Silverado HD Duramax, well, maybe you need to get on down to your local dealer and you find one for your very own. As I always like to say, each and every week, the outdoors are my passion, I want it to be yours too. We’ll see you back here again next week on another episode of Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine.
