We are up early for high tide but alas, we are fogged in. Watched the water level drop for 2 hours and eased out at 9 AM without a bump (a boat the morning before was not so lucky). Followed a pirate ship from Tarpon to Clearwater (a short hop of 15 miles) and were snug in a new slip before lunch. Half a dozen Loopers here including Ajax (haven’t seen them since Carrabelle) and Lola Marie (from Steinhatchee). Also Lady Pamela from our yacht club in Guntersville is here, but her owner and crew do not seem to be around. Toured on bikes for 3 hours and cooked Grouper on the boat for dinner using Sally Mullis’ recipe she fed us in Panama City. It is wonderful and worth passing along:
Wash filets and sprinkle with lemon juice and garlic powder.
Slice red onion thin and lay on top (plus I added some capers)
Smear Hellman's mayo on top of filet and top with cracker crumbs or bread crumbs
Bake 375 degrees for 20 minutes (It should start turning golden grown)
(Increase cooking time if filets are real thick or you have a lot of them)
