Got the Blues at Courthouse Seafood, Cambridge

I popped into this small storefront on the way home from work last night. I didn't know what I wanted so I asked the man behind the counter for a suggestion. When he asked if I liked bluefish I said yes and he held up a lovely whole fish for my inspection. About 8 inches long and the perfect serving for one I asked how I should prepare it. Throw it on the grill. 8 minutes. That's it.

So I took two fish home (he scaled and gutted them in front of my eyes) and lit up the grill. That lump charcoal from Trader Joe's does burn HOT but that's another thread. I put one in my fish grill basket and the other right on the grill. Eight minutes later I scarfed them both down -- I had planned to eat one, keep one for something else later. Once I squeezed the lemon over the moist fish I just couldn't stop. There's something about fresh fresh fish on the grill that is addictive.

Really gorgeous stuff. Friendly people. They are now open until 7 at night which makes it even more convenient. If you are in the area, I highly recommend spending your fish money there.
