We're cooking Baked Day Boat Fluke topped with roasted grape tomatoes, garlic & basil, side of roasted local Delicata squash & red onion with Chef Tonia of George's of Galilee .
The fluke cooked on The Rhode Show was caught Thursday, September 28, and delivered right to George's. The firshermen are part of a group called Wild Rhody whose goal is to provide the freshest fish. They are part of a program called Trace and Trust that allows people to know exactly what they are having, where it was caught, who caught it and where its being served. Friday's fish ID is EL0545.
