Barry Phillips, Lucky Fisherman Restaurant


  • 2 lbs. grouper filet, diced
  • Button mushrooms
  • 1 lg. yellow onion, 1 inch diced
  • 3 lg. banana peppers, 1 inch diced
  • Potatoes, peeled 1 inch diced
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup Old Bay
  • 12 thin wooden skewers
  • Salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • Olive oil


Pour 1/2 cup olive oil into a large skillet and heat to approximately 325 degrees.  While oil is heating, take a wooden skewer, alternate vegetables and fish until skewer is full.

Next, lightly season with salt and set aside.  Put 3 cups of flour into a medium-size mixing bowl, add 1/4 Old Bay and 2 tsp. salt and mix well.  Finally, lightly dredge the skewer into seasoned flour, dip skewer into milk, and back into seasoned flour for a good coating.

Place the skewer in the saute pan and brown on each side for approximately 5 minutes.  Once the fish is fully cooked, the skewers are done.  Serve with a side of red beans and rice and your favorite sauce.

Serves 4.
