Cooking at home:
If you have access to a kitchen and would like to cook the fish yourself we can remove the insides and prepare the fish for you, which you can then bring home while it is fresh. No matter if you have lots of experience in preparing fish or are trying it for the first time, it is a fun activity to do both individually or together with your family, partner or friends. Feel free to have a look at some of the many delicious fish recipes for some inspiration here:
We can also recommend the captain’s simple favorite: Fry the fish in some olive oil until its consistency becomes firm and add some potatoes and vegetables of your choice to the pan. Quick, easy and very delicious!
Grilled Fish - Norwegian Style:
A very common thing for Norwegians to do during summer is grilling at the beach. This is a perfect option if you do not have access to a kitchen but would still like to enjoy your own catch. HOW to do it: In almost every supermarket you can buy a “engangsgrill” which is a quite cheap, lightweight one-time-use grill that can easily be taken to any beach area nearby. All you need is a engangsgrill and a lighter. We can prepare the fish for you so that it can be put directly on the grill, and when ready it can be enjoyed with potato salad, fresh vegetables or any other side you may prefer.
Save it for later:
You can of course also save your catch to prepare a meal at a later time. You can put your fish in the refrigerator, however it should not stay there for more than 2 days as the temperature is too high to ensure that no harmful microbes are present. Thus our recommendation is to put the fish in the freezer as soon as possible if you would like to preserve it well for a later time. In any case, before cooking, you should check the fish for quality and freshness - smell is said to be a a informative indicator. In any case, the above information is only a recommendation and we do advise checking with an expert if in doubt.
Set it free:
If you do not feel like keeping the fish you just caught and it is still alive with no major injuries from the catching process you may gently put it back into the water - many people enjoy fishing for the sake of the activity and not for the food.
Leave it at the boat:
If you do not intend on keeping the fish but it is in a state in which it should not be released anymore you may leave it at the boat after the tour. We will happily bring it home and serve it to our families so that nothing will go to waste, and be very grateful towards the amazing fisher that you are who made the catch! Happy to have you onboard!
