February 3, 2010... Little Farmers Cay
We dinghyed to town, and explored the island on foot. We were done in an hour -- it is really a tiny place -- only 60 residents. Some were cleaning their fish catch at the dock, so we were able to buy a couple of yellowtail snapper for dinner. Now the fun part. We had to clean the fish. Neither one of us had ever done this before -- so out comes the book which makes it all seem so easy. Well it wasn't. Trying to produce four filets from the two fish, we now understand why the locals call these pan fish and fry them up whole. We made a mess of it, and ended up with fish pieces too small to grill. So, John whipped up a terrific snapper saute, with onions, green peppers, garlic, and spices, served over rice. Like we knew what we were doing all along! Well, we'll keep trying. And we might try to find someone to teach us how to clean fish.
