When under way on a "cruisers budget", and while island hopping, is there a web site that has recipies and recomendations on how to cook on board. There has GOT to be other thins to store and cook besides fish and rice.

There's a lot of good fish recipes out there! Honestly I just grill mine, and make burritos if I have the tortillas. Add some beans, rice, and tomatoe if possible.

it's not exactly great, but I find myself sometimes doing this when I need a quick, filling, easy meal.

I take some instant grits, cook em in the microwave(on a boat, just boil about a half a cup of water) dump a drained can of tuna in it, crumble some crackers over it.

Definately fills you up and doesn't taste half bad. Might want to add some salt... and I tried a bit of cheese once and it almost came out to something like a tuna casserole.

Fresh fish might be a bit of a waste this way, and more work since you'd have to cook it.

As for normal methods, well, most cook books have a seafood section. Plenty of recipes online as well.

Plenty of other threads on this board here as well related to recipes, food storage on board, and alternatives to "rice and fish"

A resturant in Key Largo offers 50 ways to cook the same fish.

I suggest that you work out ways to cook what you are eating now. There is not many cookbooks out there that does not require a fridge or canned.

Inorder to save space and cost you might check out the dehydrated foods. Just buy a 1 gal can of stew mix, eat that for a while and then try canned stew.

Several good dehydrated cook books like Mix-a-Meal. The same with seafood. Once you are curising you will be able to find many more.

Unless I have misunderstood rgrubbii's intent, the question isn't "Can someone please tell me where to find recipes to prepare fish?" Rather, it is, "I'm so sick of fish and rice, can someone direct me to a website that can tell me how to cook something else aboard?"

I take the meaning of his title for this thread ("How many ways are there to eat fish?") to mean he (or she) has eaten so much fish that the thought of eating any more is repulsive.

If the question is, literally, how many ways are there to eat fish, I would submit that while there are many, many ways to prepare fish for consumption, there is but one way to eat fish: open mouth, insert fish, chew fish, swallow; repeat . . .

Jackstee, Most "Bubble heads" I know ate pretty well.

I thought the thread is asking " Besides the obvious (Fish) what other foods should I consider taking and how do I cook it?"

Granted, I was less clear than intended. I am actually asking two questions. What can be stored for long periods that sea salt will not affect; things that you will not get tired of every day. Yea, I love me some fish and rice, but I need some pointers on different ways to prepare it.

My sister makes an excellent Broiled Tilapia Parmesan...

INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 2 pounds tilapia fillets
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.

I can imagine how 7 years submerged could lead to some unpleasant odours.
Even the Nukes only work 6 Month deployments.
What did you serve aboard?

Try this someday:
Saute a nice white filet in butter (Canned butter is available) and deglaze the pan with some not too dry white wine. Add shallots (They keep well and are the secret to all great cooking) lemon/pepper spice and fresh cantalope and bananas in chunks. Saute a few minutes and plate the sauce with the fish on top with a side of rice.

I do not measure much. You need twice the amount of fruit as fish. A little grated coconut on top will bring tears to your eyes!

I like your tilapia recipe--I use a similar one for Salmon--except I substitute horseradish cream for the mayonnaise--

I'm gonna have to give horseradish cream a try Mike. I'll pass that tip onto my sister as well. Thanks for sharing!
