Narrator: On this week’s Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine, Bob heads off the coast of South Carolina to Georgetown, South Carolina, to do some summer redfishing. Joining Bob will long-time guide and friend, Tommy Scarborough, with Georgetown Coastal Adventures Guide Service. And on this week’s sportsman’s table, we feature a South Carolina certified beer poacher fish taco recipe. All this and a whole lot more and it begins right now.
Bob: Holly, man you look good behind that reel. You do not get to do that very often.
Tommy: No. It feels good.
Bob: It does feel good. Now I am telling you.
Tommy: It feels good. We have gotten to where we fish some of these spinning reels, I do not get to fish my reef as much as I used to.
Bob: There you go I am telling you. The beast maybe that is what you have on there is a beast. Folks, welcome to our show this week. I let my good friend Tommy Scarborough, with Georgetown Coastal Adventures, catch the first fish of the day. I would say it was his birthday, but it is not. It is just- It happened to be on his side of the boat.
Tommy: My rod, my fish.
Bob: There you go. Oh, man. We are back down in Georgetown, South Carolina, one of my favorite places to be and again with one of my great friends and Tommy.
Tommy: Not a big boy but just a nice solid redfish.
Bob: Get him man. Get him up here. I tell you what he is a…
Tommy: He is spunky.
Bob: Yeah, he is spunky. Come here now come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.
Tommy: You got him?
Bob: I think so.
Tommy: You want me get it, you got him?
Bob: No man I am doing this part, hang on. I said I would man. Come here! Come here! Come here! You are not cooperating.
Tommy: Hello, male fish.
Bob: Oh yes this is not I am saying this morning. Nice black dot. I will let you remove the hook, there you go. It is a beautiful day.
Tommy: Certified hook date of job.
Bob: It is a beautiful day. Are you gonna hold him come on man, hold him. Put your rod down.
Tommy: Hold me a fish. Got to put my had behind his tail. I always tell people, do not grab them like that!
Bob: Yes. There you go.
Tommy: South Carolina spot tail bass, you have to be able to see that polka-dot.
Bob: You know, you had the magic bait. See you later, mister reed.
Tommy: Thank goodness we got bait quick.
Bob: Now we did, I am telling you.
Tommy: In the old days it was hours at times before we got bait.
Bob: Here let me borrow the rag. Listen Tommy come up here and let us talk this a little bit about fishing, Georgetown… Tell all the folks out there – what can they expect to come and fish when they come down here with you.
Tommy: A whole lot of fun, a whole lot of fish. You know, we fish for everything – king mackarel, redfish, sharks… Summertime like this, people like to come in they like do a lot of shark fishing and that is the biggest, baddest boy around. People from inland, they love shark fish. People like us, we love redfish and king mackerel. You can catch anything there is a lot of tarpon around here, speckled trout, flounder, just depends on what you are after but we are basically a family-oriented company. We want mom and dad and two or three kids or dad and grandpa and four young ones take them out just have a good day of fishing. We do not have to be serious, of course you know, my love has always been fly-fishing but we can not all be that technical.
Bob: Well you know Tommy I tell you – you have a beautiful layout here on your Tidewater boat and all those folks over in Lexington that provide this for you so that is just a great opportunity for folks to come down and experience a great ride but the other thing is coming down to fish with you – it is a pleasure. So folks I just want to say this guy right here if you have not been fishing lately you need to come on down to Georgetown, South Carolina. Things are alive and well down here. Log on to bobredfern.com, and you will find on the top sixteen, you will find Tommy Scarborough and Georgetown Coastal Adventures. Can I have one, can I catch one?
Tommy: Your line is in the water, we will see but let me bait up and see if I can catch another one.
Bob: I may have a better chance with you being out of the water! Are you going to let me have this one again, Tommy?
Tommy: Sure! Okay man.
Bob: Here can pop.
Tommy: If I knew for sure it was a red, I would get it myself.
Bob: You know, I wonder why that you hesitated I know, see. It is either a ray, a shark, or a red.
Tommy: If I think it is a red, a shark, or an oyster toad, I am the most generous person you will ever find.
Bob: You are killing me man, you are killing me.
Tommy: Oh my goodness!
Bob: Listen, how many trips a day are you coming out of this summer?
Tommy: Well, I was going to ease into the summer and ease into the heat and I eased right into running eleven twelves trips a week. I am pretty much booked every day. One thing is, people getting out on short notice but boy there sure need to call time as they start thinking about coming to the beach, they need to go ahead and be calling, because all you good guides if they are worth us much anything, you need to call them in advance.
Bob: Well I mean that is always good practice, especially if you want to come fishing with a guy that knows what he is doing.
Tommy: Fish even love that may cut one going back and look out. Let us see what that fish looks like. If it is bigger than mine, I am not grabbing it.
Bob: Look at this. Well, I think he might be.
Tommy: He sort of looks like it, almost.
Bob: He does, he do not?
Tommy: Kindly saw.
Bob: He does.
Tommy: You are upsetting Bob. You are upsetting. Simmer down, fishy, simmer down. Boy, this Tidewater 24 is a beast.
Bob: It is. It is great to fishing.
Tommy: I have owned everything that floats just about and for the money you can not get much better than this right here.
Bob: Look at that! Oh, man. Awesome! You got him?
Narrator: Stay tuned! After commercial break, we head back to Georgetown, South Carolina for more fishing.

Tommy: It might be okay I do not know. You might want to get it anyway Bob.
Bob: Alright, let me get it out this way.
Tommy: Go up here yes or where. I am burned hungry.
Bob: Where I am going to go that way. Got you. Oh, no, I have to go under here.
Bob: Alright, man. Get him, get him, get him. That was pretty good.
Tommy: Like Gump’s box of chocolates right there.
Bob: I am telling you.
Tommy: So men are out there, you do not know what you are going to get. Could be a shark, could be a stingray. Might be a big old tarpon. You just never know.
Bob: Sun is shining.
Tommy: Sun is out, a little sea breeze.
Bob: That is all it takes.
Tommy: Big old bend in this Abu rod. Hear that drag coming off of that beast reel, oh yes.
Bob: Plus, you just enjoy me getting wet.
Tommy: Yes I would hold red a lot on somebody else had to take these sharks home.
Bob: Yes I think you are right that one is a shark.
Tommy: Yes I see it when they hear, look, act like a little black-tip or something they come right up just smack to of…
Bob: That is okay.
Tommy: But you know we are not fishing for fame and glory – I am fishing for fun and that is what most us come for right there – we are addicted to the squeal of the reel. It is a darn stingray! Good God. Now I definitely know I should have given it to Bob.
Bob: I can not believe I missed that one. Bob you know, people across country come here on vacation who never seen these things enough and I have caught redfish after redfish and one of the kids or somebody catches one of these and they more excited over this than a thirty-pound redfish.
Bob: Yes I know. No kidding. You are right because they have never seen one.
Tommy: You want to take the rod now?
Bob: Yes I will look at you better handle that one I got it. Let me move back here.
Tommy: There you go. Have to just bring that stings grew up down.
Bob: I will let the captain do his stuff.
Tommy: Hey come here you. I have done my stuff I made him mad.
Bob: He is not happy, you are right look at him.
Tommy: Look at him, he can got to spit at you.
Bob: Yes look at him.
Bob: Show that war out.
Tommy: He knows you have been eating carrots. You want him fly?
Hey you got to save the hook. All right, you did it.
Narrator: Coming up next, we head to the City Center Market in Florence, South Carolina for a great fish and beer recipe. The Sportsman’s Table is brought to you by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. Whether you live in South Carolina or out of state be sure to buy South Carolina-grown meats, vegetables or fruits. Make sure your food is South Carolina-certified. It is a matter of taste.
Bob: Joining me today in downtown Florence at the City Center Market kitchen here is chef Adam Silverman, with Downtown Southern Funk. We have a great recipe for you all. I will tell you what Adam, thanks for being a guest. I love fish and you love playing with your food here at Downtown Southern Funk. Well let us play with this one because I can not wait.
Adam: So this is a great recipe. You are out fishing with the buddies- We are located inside of Seminar Brewery. So we are going to do a beer poached wreckfish taco. Wreckfish was brought in from Merle’s Inlet Seafood, sourced locally through Maypop Farm, Darlington. So all I have done is bring some of the beer to a boil. Does not matter what kind of beer you use, you guys are fishing and drinking, throw one of the cans into a pot and get it boiling. So we are just going to cut some nice thin pieces of this wreckfish . It is absolutely beautiful.
Bob: It is. I mean it is a meaty fish.
Adam: Yes it is great for grilling, frying, roasting, sautéing…
Bob: So, with wreckfish- That is relatively new but a lot of you chefs know what that is. Normal it is snapper, grouper and that is–
Adam: Flounder. Okay so we are just going to take this and just put it straight into the–
Bob: Into the beer.
Bob: Look at that. Alright Adam, we are heating up the tortillas.
Adam: That is right and we have combined our tomato, onion, garlic, peaches and hit it with a little lime juice and we actually do have a local source for citrus fruits. That is Stan Mckenzie, down in Lake City.
Bob: Oh great!
Adam: So we have a little peach salsa and so far we have spent about ten minutes. We are going to take just a little bit of this chilli garlic sauce and mix it into the mayonnaise. Just going to make a nice little…
Bob: Mayonnaise is my favorite thing. Mayonnaise makes everything good.
Bob: And is got to be Duke’s.
Adam: Of course. So we are just going to grab some tongs, take our wreckfish, fall one apart, tender.
Bob: That is okay. Let me slide it out of the way so that the folks can see it, how about that. There you go. Well you know as natural as it would be I believe if I was dunked and cooked in beer I would be a little bit shaky too.
Adam: Tender too?
Bob: There you go.
Adam: Okay, I am going to put that to the side. We are going to take a little bit of some mixed greens that we got from local farmers, just chop that up a little bit.
Bob: It always amaze me how you guys do that without cutting your fingers.
Adam: We take a whole lot of time practicing and we get a whole lot of cuts in the meantime.
Bob: I bet you do.
Adam: So we are just going to put some of these greens on here, going to have a little bit of tomato…
Bob: Color is everything.
Bob: Presentation. Who would have thought wreckfish tacos. Wow!
Adam: Some onion and we are going to top it off with some of our peach salsa.
Bob: Oh wow!
Adam: The nice thing about this you can make this peach salsa day before, chop up your lettuce and your tomatoes so while you are out there fishing and making tacos all you have to do is cook the fish and throw everything together.
Bob: Well it is a great idea because what you combine here is the sweet and the bitter together. Oh look at that?
Adam: A little bit of a zing on top–
Bob: Oh wow!
Adam: And there we go. We have got some beer poached wreckfish tacos.
Bob: Wreckfish tacos. Adam thank you so much for being a guest chef on the show today.
Adam: I appreciate you having me.
Bob: And folks when you are in the great state of South Carolina, stop on in to the city of Florence. This guy right here, Downtown Southern Funk, you need to be there.

Bob: Here he comes.
Tommy: And what month are we in, Bob?
Bob: Oh, it is July. It is hot in the south. That is okay.
Tommy: You hear all these stories about all these places and redfish…
Bob: I know. Most people will tell you that you can not catch a redfish in the heat of the summer, but you can down here with Tommy Scarborough. Look at that!
Tommy: I like these little white rods.
Bob: I am telling you, that Veritas is an awesome, awesome rod. Now I put a Berkley Braid on there yesterday, I just re spool those things thorough beast. So a beast for a beast.

Tommy: If he would come on this way.
Bob: Oh man!
Tommy: It has been a while since we got out here and had some fun Bob.
Bob: I am telling you, you know. We work too much.
Tommy: But you know what we are going to fall right back into it. Never miss a beat, just keep right on staking along.
Bob: Folks, I am telling you, Georgetown Coastal Adventures. If you have not been, it truly is an adventure. Oh my goodness, look at that.
Tommy: You will probably want to grab the leader and grab his tail, Bob.
Bob: I got you.
Tommy: Before I can get the net out at which out. I kind of love watching you that. That is the reason why- If you get a big one, I am just going to get the net out and scoop it.
Bob: You are killing me. Goodness, that is a nice fish. All right, come here. Do not do that. You are killing me. Come here, fish.
Tommy: If we ever do a bloopers section, we are going to have to put that on.
Bob: Oh, my gosh. That thing is a horse. All right man, we are going to have to get the pliers to get this one out or may just have to cut…
Tommy: Yes I have my hook remover right up here.
Bob: You get him, he is your fish. Man look at this you already got me all wet. Look at that oh man! Be careful now, be careful. Look at that. Folks that is Georgetown Coastal Adventures right there. Wow you did good, my friend.
Tommy: We are going to get her back. That is out baby-maker. There she goes. All happy.
Bob: See look at there. Just though of little faith.
Tommy: That is a good fish. That was a good fight, it was fun.
Bob: That was a good fight.
Tommy: Might just have to do that again.
Bob: I know. It was your turn, you were turning the barrel, you were trying to catch a tarpon.
Tommy: I am and I am still trying to catch a tarpon.
Bob: I am just trying to be a good mate. Plus I got my union card. Plus you never did give me my commodore, graduate to admiral card.
Tommy: Yes, I know.

Uh, this guy was an Apache helicopter pilot for the 101st Airborne second 17th… Cobra, Cobra Cobra! I’m sorry, gosh I keep thinking Apaches. It’s all right, that’s all right. But um, and I was a battalion operations officer for an Iftar battalion 4187 and Jack provided air cover support with Cobras for us and gosh, you know… Been friends ever since. Well, we had been and I talked to you on the phone but ya know it’s been since 1987, how many years is that? Yeah, too many. Forty some years ago, look at that, man. Beautiful, Beautiful. little red fish right there. All right, Georgetown, Yes, sir. Gotta be more where that came from. Well, you know, Kevin I’ll tell you what, I love redfishin’, okay, the summertime, yeah it’s hot but redfishin’ just, I don’t know, it’s just exciting out there but all of these great Gulp! products and all this stuff from Berkley is just absolutely on target today on our show. Okay, and I tell ya what folks, when we come back, we’re gonna have Kevin talk about each one of these things that I’m using on today’s show. So stay tuned, when we come back, it’s all about Kevin and Berkley. [Announcer] Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine, is being brought to you today by, The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, life’s just better outdoors. By Berkley, catch more fish with Berkley fishing products. By Ranger Boats, still building legends one at a time. By Browning Ammunition, Browning the best there is. And by Southern Woods Plantation, voted as one of the top quail hunting destinations in America. Welcome back, folks. As promised, joining me is Kevin Malone, he is the product brand manager at Berkley for Pure Fishing and I tell ya what, this young guy, it’s been a while since he’s been on our show and so that’s why I wanted to have him as part of this show this week, to talk about these great products from Berkley and especially the Gulp! and the gig heads. Kevin, bud, I tell ya what though, you always never cease to amaze me, okay. I just, let’s talk, let’s start with the gig heads, let’s talk about those ’cause they’re new from Fusion here at Berkley, let’s talk about those. Yeah, so a couple years back in 2015 we launched new range of Terminal Tackle and Berkley called Fusion 19 which is uh, really our take at some key pieces of terminal tackle. So you know, at Berkley we make a serious effort to make sure that it’s the right stuff and has the right performance, and that’s really what Fusion 19 is about. We’ve got a couple new additions, that you guys were using in today’s show, the new Swing Head um, you know this is a really neat design in that you get a really wide range of motion with the swivel in between the weight and the hook. But what’s really important is the hook, you know that’s one of your most important connection points between you and the fish, and these Fusion 19 hooks on the Swing Head have a needle point design so they’re super sharp, they maintain their points really well and they have a slick set coding, which is what we put on this hook that actually helps it penetrate the fishes mouth easier so you get a ton of action out of this head, you’ve got a super sharp high quality hook and just a really great value. The other piece of this key is this little keeper, it’s a lead-free swinging keeper that help hold your plastic on there, you know a lot of other similar type gig heads like this, you just slide out the shank of the hook and it has a tendency to pull down so, we put this little keeper on here to really help keep your plastic straight and in place. Well, I tell ya what, you know with the Jerk Bait here, that we have is, I mean, it goes on there very well okay, and I just, it’s just that added action. Yeah. Okay. As apposed to more what I call the normal gig head. Yeah. Okay. Which is more of a kind of a static. Right And there’s not much, its just an up and down and then of course the tail. Yep. So I think you guys have hit the nail on the head with that one. Yeah, that’s a really awesome gig head and to your point, it gives a lot of extra action that you don’t get in maybe a traditional straight gig head. Well let’s talk about some of the others now, you know, again for trout and even redfish, on a quart unit here like we were using today, these crabs are… I just had no idea. Yeah, yeah, I mean it’s super lifelike in terms of it’s overall shape, you know redfish obviously eat a lot of crabs throughout the year and so that, in combination with the special formula that is Gulp!, makes it really irresistible to those big redfish. Okay now, we’re gonna have to take it back just a little bit, okay? Let’s reintroduce to a lot of folks out there, who may not be familiar with Gulp!, okay. You know, a lot of guys use live bait, they’ll use shrimp, they’ll use gut and uh, mollet and all kinds of things when they’re actually fishing in the saltwater. If you don’t have Gulp! on board the boat man, I think you’re missing the boat. [Kevin] Yeah, absolutely. I would say Gulp! you know, and a lot of people and particularly in saltwater consider Gulp! to be the best alternative to live bait and the reason for that is the scent. There’s a lot of other baits out there that claim to have scent but nobody understands scent like Berkley does and we introduced Gulp! you know, some years ago and it made its place into a lot of saltwater boats over time, but what it comes down to is the scent so we’ve got the traditional shapes, some night shapes, like the crab but the material and the scent that we put into that product is what drives the fish crazy, it’s probably the only soft classic in the world that you can deadstick and fish will eat it off the bottom just like live bait, so it’s the proprietary material, it’s the proprietary scent package that we put in it, and it actually distributes scent out into the water column, so you’re not only playing on the fish’s sense of sight, with the shape and action but you’re actually bringing them to the bait with that scent. Well and the packaging is kinda key too. Let’s talk, I mean it’s already in the scent, you can buy it that way, okay, for multiples and of course the variances there, it’s still, there’s a lot of scent in the bags, if that’s how you wanna do it. You also, and tell folks how, all of the Berkley products, tell ’em how they can go about there and look at ’em, okay and well, basically before they go into the store to buy ’em because you guys just got so much of this stuff out there. It’s just awesome. [Kevin] Yeah, we’ve launched a ton of product over the last two to three years and the best place to look at it is on BerkleyFishing.com, we’ve got every size and shape and color you can imagine out there and there’s a lot of good resources out there as well so… Okay, well I’m gonna have you back cuz we’re not done yet, okay. Beau, I tell you what, man, I gotta ask ya, how’s it feel to be a new dad? Oh, it’s awesome. It’s the best feeling in the world, there’s nothing better than catching fish, I thought that was the best feeling in the world but coming home to a little baby is uh, it tops it by a mile, so it’s a lot of fun. And I bet you already got him his fishing rod out, okay? Oh yeah, we’re ready to go. There ya go. All right well folks, listen, stay tuned, when we come back, we’re gonna have a great recipe on this weeks Sportman’s Table, Rib Sandwiches, okay? South Carolina certified pork, you gotta stay tuned for this one. We’ll be right back. [Announcer] The Sportsman’s Table, brought to you by, The South Carolina Department of Agriculture whether you live in South Carolina or out of state, be sure to buy South Carolina grown meats, vegetables and fruits. Make sure your food is South Carolina certified, it’s a matter of taste. Welcome to this addition of the Sportsman’s Table, this week folks, joining me is Ed Drombroski, he is with Lee’s Farm, here in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina and we’re filming from Deck 383 Restaurant, just down the road from Lee’s Farm. Ed, it’s always a pleasure, man. What kinda, I tell you what, you never cease to amaze me, man, you got a rack of ribs here… Yep. [Bob] What do we got goin’ on? Well, what we’re gonna do today is, we smoke uh, meats on the weekends at the market, we have a big smoker there, I love doing smoking. I’ve been doing it for 25 years. What we’re gonna do today is, I’m gonna do a boneless rib sandwich. Oh, wow. Okay? And what we’re gonna do is just start that off, let’s get our, I’m gonna make a sauce for it too, I’m gonna make a syrup and bacon and bourbon sauce to put on top of it, the sandwich. Oh, wow, sounds great. But we’re going to take some sliced up bacon, [Bob] Okay. throw that in there… Get that rolling. [Bob] Now you’re using pecan oil or just regular olive oil? [Ed] I’m using pecan oil, high heat and I love the flavor, the nutty flavor of it, obviously use whatever you need, cause some people have those allergies. [Bob] I gotcha. [Ed] Let that get going, we’re also gonna throw in some diced up onions in there, we’re gonna let that reduce down and want that to uh, render all the fats, so that’s going to take a little time. In the meantime, we’re gonna work on our, getting our rib ready and I’m gonna show ya how we’re gonna do that. We’re going to take your rib, look at that beautiful rib, Oh my goodness. all that meat on there, all that marbling in there, very tender already. [Bob] Yeah. [Ed] What you wanna do is you wanna take this silver skin off. Easiest way to do that is to grab yourself a towel, cut yourself the end, grab ahold of it, and tear it off. [Bob] Oh, wow, okay. [Ed] Just like that. [Bob] Wow, look at that. [Ed] Okay? That’s that chewy part that everybody has on the rib, you don’t wanna have that on there. [Bob] Gotcha. [Ed] Okay? So after that we’re gonna do is rub it, any type of barbeque rub… This is stuff we make here at the market here and its got brown sugar, its got some chili powder, its got, I put a little Old Spice in mine, Okay. I like that. A little bit of orange, dried orange peel, it’s a really nice for pork and chicken. All right, so now that you can see how the fat rendered out, and see how crispy that bacon is, Yeah, yeah. And translucent that is, now we’re gonna finish off the sauce. [Bob] Okay. [Ed] K? What we’re gonna do is take a little bit of smoked chipotle chilis, put them in there. [Bob] Right, mmm. [Ed] Okay, I’m gonna put a little bit of balsamic vinegar, give it that acidic flavor. You can use maple syrup, I’m using black walnut syrup that we sell at the market. Oh, at the market. Again, I like that nutty flavor. [Bob] Oh yeah, yeah. Um, some people don’t like it but I love that nutty flavor. Okay, mix that around a little bit, and you can let this cook for ya know, about five minutes or so. [Bob] Okay. What you’re gonna do is, you’re gonna take your favorite whiskey or bourbon, you gotta put that in the sauce. [Bob] There ya go. Okay? So that’s that, put that there. Okay, now from here you’re gonna let her cook for another about ten minutes or so to you know, to render down and reduce a little bit, and that’ll be your finished sauce, on top a your ribs. Put that up there like that. [Bob] Whew! [Ed] Mm, look how nice that looks. [Bob] Oh, my goodness, fresh bread… [Ed] Yep, you do this for a party like this, this long thing. [Bob] Yeah, fresh ribs… [Ed] Absolutely. Now we’re gonna take the sauce… [Bob] I’ll get this out the way for ya. We’re gonna take this sauce, we’re gonna put this on top. All those flavors… [Bob] Oh, my goodness. [Ed] K? Yeah, some people put barbeque sauce on top a the ribs, I’m not a lover of that, I like to do it with, I like to taste meat. [Bob] Mmm-hmm [Ed] I love tasting that meat. So that’s what we’re gonna do there and now I’m gonna finish it off with a little bit of parsley, okay? [Bob] Wow, wow, wow, wow Goodness. All right and now we’re ready to plate it. Whew, wow! Let’s set that right there. That is wonderful. Look at that, that’s beautiful, isn’t it? Yeah. So now what we’re gonna do, is we’re gonna, we make all our salads at the market. Okay. Okay. So we’re gonna get a little potato salad cause you gotta have potato salad at a barbecue, when you havin’ ribs. We’re gonna do a little bit of our macaroni salad. [Bob] Mmm [Ed] Okay. And then were gonna cut this up. [Bob] Mmm-mmm-mmm Oh, my goodness, look at that. Wow. [Ed] Look at that. [Bob] Mmm-mmm-mmm [Ed] Okay. I’mma plate it there.

First thing we’re gonna do, is I’m gonna get my shrimp cooking here. So I got a little bit of unsalted butter here. Okay. A little bit of onions. And I already cooked my fried green tomatoes earlier. So I used a little bit of buttermilk a little fry flour and a little bit of corn meal to get those nice breaded and nice texture for the dish. You know, not everybody can fry green tomatoes. And you know what I like about green tomatoes. They haven’t got that sweetness yet, so it’s little bit of better, I made a nice honey bacon jam here. So that’s gonna bring the sweetness to the dish and the saltiness like with the bacon. That everyone just loves so much. So, we’re gonna make a little bit of benedict here, I mean, I am waffle, I mean breakfast expert, so. There you go. So we got those onions cooking a little bit. I just want to bring out the flavor, bring out some aroma. And I’m gonna get my shrimp cooking. Well folks, if you want a copy of Jamie’s recipe just log on to BobRedfern.com go to the Sportsman’s Table and voila, it’ll be right there. And we are down in the Myrtle Beach area. Drop by Johnny D’s Waffles and Bakery and you’ll probably see Jamie in there doing this exact same thing. So the best part of the dish is I got my beer here. So we’re gonna finish off with a little bit of beer. We’re gonna let that shrimp finish cooking in that braising. The two B’s, beer for breakfast. Exactly, why not? I mean, we do serve liquor at the restaurant. Yeah, okay. So we might as well. You know, beer, liquor, bloody mary’s what ever you want here. Yeah, exactly. [Jamie] So we’re gonna get that going. And I mean shrimp is pretty relatively quickly cooked so it’s only gonna take a minute or two. [Bob] You just gotta let them get pink. [Jamie] That’s it. We’re gonna let them curl up a little bit. But in the mean time here, I’m gonna start plating. [Bob] Okay. [Jamie] So I got my fried green tomatoes that I made. All right, let me get this out of the way a little bit. We don’t want to block it. There ya go. All right. Oh yeah. We’re gonna take little bit of this bacon jam. And that’s got honey in it to. Yes. Wow, that’s awesome.
