Spear fishing is probably my most favorite form of hunting! Spear fishing is the most sustainable form of fishing as well. You only take what you need and nothing else gets harmed in the process. I train really hard to be able to spear fish! You see it’s not just about floating on the water with your cute little snorkel waiting for a fish to show up. Oh no my friend you best believe that you need to dive your ass down there, hold your breath and gently lay on the floors surface pretending to be one with the environment, that’s when fish will start coming your way in the most natural way possible.

With summer weather in full effect that means fishing and spear fishing is in full effect as well! And summer brings some of my favorite flavors; citrus, chilies and tropical fruits! Man, I could live in Hawaii and be such a happy camper livin in my flip flops, spearfishing for dinner and eating all the tropical fruits possible! I mean is there anything better than Hawaiian passionfruit, pineapple or papaya with lime? Oh, and mangos! I think not! These flavors are like heaven to me. So, to combine all these flavors I believe that Ceviche is the best dish possible. Plus, Ceviche come with an added bonus, you don’t have to turn on the damn stove to cook! I mean come on who really wants to sweat their ass off during summer to cook? Its already a humid hell in here Georgia! So, ceviche it is! 

This recipe is something that I love to make on the boat right after I catch a fish. Yes, I bring the necessary food items with me on the boat. Ummm… hello, haven’t ya’ll experienced the best sashimi ever? You know the kind where you catch a fish and eat it right there, man that’s the best! So here is my go to recipe for Red Snapper Ceviche!
