Last night was the absolute best! Cathy, Marylex and I went over to our friend’s house, Chris and Melissa. They are the funnest. We met a year or two ago. I, first, met him while interpreting. Once I met her, that was it! We have so much in common. She loves Pinterest, she lives on the wild side and she’s got a whole lot of faith. Friendship is so sweet when it’s Godly. He really knows how to put families together in fellowship.
For the Fourth of July, Melissa and Chris went shark hunting with some of Chris’ cousins. We couldn’t wait to hear all about it over some dinner at their house. The next day after their shark hunting expedition, they sent us tons of pictures and we were eager to try some shark and whatever else they caught out at sea.
They paid $35 per person to go out on a boat with the shark hunter and guaranteed to bring home shark fillets. Luckily, they caught some giant catfish as well and allowed to bring home. The coolest was that they caught some tiger and hammerhead sharks but not allowed to take it home. I guess there are limits and laws on what and how much you can take home with you.
Back to last night, we had a blast. We ate Beer-Battered Shark + Catfish Bites with amazing veggies and Angry Orchard, my personal fave. They recently came out with the seasonal flavor called Summer Honey. I’m officially obsessed! I had tried shark before but not this fresh and, definitely, not this tasty. I hope you find a way to get a hold of some shark fillets and catfish, you certainly won’t regret it. You most likely will live to regret not having made this recipe.
