I just love fresh cooked fish. This probably comes from living on the coast of Florida my whole life. Back in the day, I used to even run on a shrimp boat so I could get my fish as fresh as you could! We would stay out on the boat at night and bring a little grill with us to cook our meals in the morning. We would always flavor the fish the same way and make the same bean salad to go with it.
We really could not bring a lot of perishable items on the boat, so canned food was a must! Thank goodness the freshness of the season gets sealed in the can. Did you know that 73% of Americans throw away spoiled fruits and vegetables on average two times a week. The rate is even higher on a boat! When you buy canned food, there is no need to worry if your food will spoil anytime soon!
