NOAA Fish Fry 2019

:: Tags: Evening Out, Event, Fish Fry, Food

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve attended the annual NOAA Fish Fry in Washington, DC, but because my wife work’s on the posters, banners and inner office communications for the CFC event, she receives free tickets. So this year she talked me into going with her again and I’m glad I did! The big hit of this years NOAA Fish Fry was Lion Fish and all the different ways you can cook it and use it in different recipes. My personal favorites were Grilled Lion Fish Cesar Salad and Grilled Lion Fish Kababs. I have to admit though, I love sea food, so I tried everything… from the oysters and shrimp to the octopus and crab cakes… and it was all delicious! Another highlight of the evening was meeting and chatting with Captain Keith Colburn of the F/V Wizard, one of the stars from the Discovery Channel’s reality show “Deadliest Catch”. After ten minutes of discussing commercial fishing, politics and the ever shrinking Alaskan fishing grounds and quota’s, we posed for a selfie and then indulged ourselves in some of Keith’s famous Alaskan king crab legs. I had such a great time… I can’t wait to attend it again next year!
