Fish Tales

Did you know Long Island, New York, is shaped like a fish?
Yep, and that's the food I've eaten the most of since I arrived here at my sister and brother-in-law's in somewhat eastern Long Island. Most of this bounty has been caught by my brother-in-law. If you want exiquistely fresh fish it helps to have a relative with a penchant and talent for deep sea fishing and a sister who has made fish cookery her area of expertise. Here's just a partial list of the fish I've been feasting on:

Home-smoked tuna dip
Seared tuna with sesame-soy dipping sauce
Cajun mako and tuna "nuggets"
Blackened scallops and mako bites

My sister also whipped up some awesome homemade onion rings.

I already know I'll be returning with a care package of frozen tuna and bluefish, but the brother-in-law is going fishing once again before I leave for back West, so there is probably more fish stories to come.
