South Louisiana-Yes, it is HOT
So, as most of you know, we caught some Cobia on our last fishing trip.

Tonight we ate some fresh Cobia steaks on the grill. Little pecan wood smoke on the green egg, 7-8 minutes and they were done.

Don Dubuc is a local outdoors radio personality, has some really great recipes on his website. This is the Cobia recipe we used...

The breasola salad:

Looks great. How is cobia? What would you compare it to?
Thanks. Cobia is a hard fish for me to compare to other fish. It is a firm white flesh fish, very clean flavor, not oily. It got it's name lemonfish because lemon is all you really need....excellent table fare....perfect for the grill.

Thanks chef jj!

never heard of that fish but sure looks good, nice looking plate of food.
Thanks jim! Cobia is a prized catch in the gulf of mexico. Louisiana has them year round, but the catches increase during the summer with the cobia migration west down the coast. One of my favorite fish to eat. The entire mood changed when the first Cobia broke the surface and we knew what was on the line. Mad dash for gaffs and clearing the deck to bring the fish onboard. Cobia have razor sharp dagger bones on top their back that they can extend or withdraw. They will cut you open if the fish slashes you across the leg. Once gaffed, the gaff stays in the fish until the fish is on ice, otherwise it will thrash about the boat and can really do some damage...especially a big one.
They do grow fast though, a 2 year old fish can grow to 37". The fish is farmed in Asia.....

thats how I am feeling. Man that all looks great!
Thanks sandyut!

Looks delicious!
Thanks Al!

Point for sure
