Fresh Florida Catch, Wednesday: June 21

Chef Miller will take you on a seafood adventure, discovering the bounty of regional offerings from the Florida Panhandle Gulf estuaries, and fingers to fathoms. Chef Irv will share tips for purchasing, storing, preparing and cooking fresh seafood and shellfish. He will discuss basic marinades and demonstrate several of his favorite dishes. With a bit of preplanning, a trip to one of the local seafood markets will inspire you to use the freshest seafood available by purchasing over-the-counter seafood fresh off the boat. Locally prized seasonal catches include red snapper, grouper, scamp, cobia, pompano, triggerfish, swordfish, wahoo, mahi mahi, amberjack, sheepshead, speckled trout, flounder, yellowfin tuna, king and Spanish mackerel and the invasive lionfish species.
