Ready to roll up your sleeves and grill quality fresh fish?! In the first segment, you will start off preparing the fish in the kitchen at our house. You'll learn how to properly clean (take out the insides) of the Mackerel in order to get the fish ready for grilling. The second portion of class will take place in our tropical style backyard using our grill to learn the appropriate technique of making a mouthwatering Mackerel. You will also learn which complementary, traditional and contemporary side dishes that will truly set the flavor off on this particular fish! Finally, it's time to reap the rewards of your hard work! We will dine al fresco on the sandy beach down the street with a one of a kind dining set up on the sand in Hermosa Beach! I promise it will be well worth it.
Hi there! My name is Sean Kelly. I'm a commercial Mackerel fisherman (Pacific Blue Mackerel) based in Hermosa Beach, CA. I live with my co-host and girlfriend, Amanda Koss, who is 3rd generation in Manhattan Beach. We live in a house here just close to the beach. Uniquely, my family is from Ireland, but I've lived in many countries including Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Venezuela, and finally the US! I've spent 29 summers in Portugal & learned the traditional grilling technique for fish that creates a delicious cuisine you can make for many years to come! Amanda, on the other hand, is a professional in hospitality and beach life... and will set up an epic tablescape for good food, good people, and good times!
