Turtle Nuggets

August 2, 2015

For my wife's birthday, we decided to go fishing with Melissa and Chris. When we finished up, we would have a barbecue afterwards at their place, they live on an acre: * insert thumbs up here *.


Originally, we were going to head over to Medieval Times in Kissimmee. They offer free admission if it’s your birthday. It’s a pretty good deal, being that it is expensive. If you don’t know what Medieval Times is, click here. Due to the fact that hanging out with our friends is so much more fun, we changed our plans to the fishing and barbecue.



We just had such a good time! Unfortunately, we may not have had a catch of the day but we got to hang out at Indian River, kick back, relaxing and enjoying the wonderful view while entertained by the friendly dolphins. Once we realized we weren’t going to catch anything, we decided to head out. Just in time, too, because they have just begun to rain. Headed out to their house to barbecue some leftover catch they had at home. We had the sweetest spot under the bridge on Merritt Island. Are we even supposed to do that? I hope so because there is a small paved road to get on under there.


These Shark SteaksTurtle Nuggets were mmmhm, good. With all the exotic food I have eaten while traveling the world, I could honestly say that I never thought I would be eating Shark Steaks & Turtle Nuggets, much less at the same time and on the same plate. I can talk all day about never having wanted to try this but now I’m convinced it’s not the last time. Are you ready for the wildest meal you’ve ever read the recipe to?


Even if you’re not, have a taste of the wild side and scroll below.
