Paid a little visit to my local fish monger today to pick up some goodies for the Caribbean Throw-down. and got some freshies.
Mahi Mahi, large pink Gulf shrimp,fesh large Stone Crabs, 1lb ground conch, Conch chowda, then to the grocery store for some Coulantro, red bell pepper, scotch Bonnet peppers and Pidgeon Peas. Next stop liquor store for some Caribe Beer!

Added 2 eggs, red bell peppers, coulantro, onion, scotch bonnets, lime juice, bread crumbs and flour.
My wife was ready for a little appetizer so she helped herself to the Stone Crab Claws, mustard sauce and a glass of Cava.
Cleaned and de-veined a couple of shrimp
Marinated in some jerk paste and skewered
Set up the Kamado direct heat HOT and set my trusty cast iron skillet to work
