Just recently, for the 4th of July, my brother Bubba came and spent the weekend with me. Well, y’all I was just dying for someone to put out my crab traps for the weekend. Finally, Bubba agreed and I was so thrilled! Altogether in the five traps we set out, we caught about 25 to 30 crabs. It was a hoot, just hanging out by the water with my brother and the rest of our families. We sat right on the dock, eatin’ our crabs and watching the fireworks overhead, just like we were kids again. It’s moments like that that make me so glad to live in Savannah.
But of course, if it’s one thing that us Southern girls love, it’s fishin’! As a little girl, I remember tugging at my daddy’s pants leg while he would cast out his line, hoping that he’d catch something to bring home for dinner that night. Today it’s always great when I have a few hours to myself, Michael and I can grab our rods and head out to our dock. It’s so quiet, listening to the water lap on the shore. We don’t even need words. We just sit back, dip our lines in the water, and relax as the Savannah sun warms our skin.
Beer Battered Fish and Chips is a great go-to dish. Sometimes Jamie and Bobby come over and they always like to grill. Bobby loves to make Grilled Tilapia with Peach BBQ Sauce. My friend Trisha Yearwood was just recently on one of my shows, and she shared this delicious Saucy Catfish recipe. It was scrumptious, y’all!
Try some of these summer fish recipes for your family. I guarantee you’ll find something your family will love!
