Fish On The Beach... A Biblical Experience.

picking-fishHere's a great foodie experience I had in Puerto Vallarta. I was walking along the beach in the early morning and the beach was oddly covered in fish that locals were collecting it by the bucketful. Some people were throwing them back into the ocean but others were collecting them to feast on later. [caption id="attachment_2173" align="alignright" width="144" caption="Photo courtesy of Reb Stevenson "]taxi-guy[/caption] There was a lack of consensus as to why the fish had chosen to swarm the beach on mass. Some blamed global warming, some thought a nearby shark or whale drove them in, one guy said it was because the fish were spawning while another guy theorized it had something to do with the full moon. While some of the people I talked to seemed gravely concerned, the staff at Blue Chairs knew that they had hit the jackpot. The third day of a fish feast washing up on their beach meant good eating for everyone’s family. After watching the locals collect buckets and bags full of fish, I ventured up to the restaurant where they were frying up platters of the fish and where taxi drivers gathered around and ate the piping hot fish on hand made corn tortillas with fresh lime. sand-jesusThe restaurant wasn't selling the fish – just sharing the bounty with locals and curious onlookers like me! The fish was delicious and couldn’t have been fresher. I squirted it with lots of fresh lime and peeled the piping hot crispy-skinned flesh off the bones and popped the morsels into my mouth –  I couldn’t have drummed up a yummier breakfast that morning! Oddly enough, further down the beach was a larger than life version of the DaVinci's Last Supper carved out of sand by a local artist.... maybe there's a biblical explanation for the fish bounty jumping out of the ocean! picture-21
