Re: Best Boat Snack

This is my fast snack.

Purchase a 16 oz. tub of the fresh salsa sold on the produce isle of most grocery stores. (Yea, yea, I know it's cheating and it's dead easy to make great salsa with truly fresh ingredients but this is fast and easy.) Mix the salsa with two ripe, chopped avocados. Or, use one avocado and half the salsa, save the rest for later.

Alternatively you may add diced Swiss cheese to the muck.... Holy Guacamoli!

Re: Best Boat Snack

I'm on a 22 footer, and if we're underway we're heeled over. Favorite snack? Whatever you can hold with your teeth long enough to use your hand to ease / haul the sheet - because the other hand is on the tiller! Especially if you had to cap your gatorade and chuck it aside to tack, then secure the jib sheet and pick your drink back up off the cockpit sole when it rolls past your foot. Cup holders... must get cup holders....


I'm really digging the cream cheese / salsa thing posted above. That's going to be my next one to try for sure. (as soon as I heave out the anchor, anyway)

Put the cream cheese on a plate or in a bowl. Pour the salsa over it. Stick a butter knife in the middle for spreading on crackers.

We call it boat crack. It's damn addictive and is good at the dock or when sailing.

If you want to get all fancy you can use mango salsa.
I like this as well, also we enjoy the cream cheese with a jar of jalapeno jelly over it. Good stuff on crackers.

Re: Best Boat Snack

This is dirt simple and good after the hook is down.

Fresh Jersey corn bought at a farm on the way to the boat. Husk and throw on the Magma.

When you pull the corn off, throw on a slab of good quality tuna brushed with a little olive oil and some salt and cracked pepper, sear one side, flip and sear the other. Slice thin and top with a wasabi cream sauce (just some wasabi whisked into cream).

Wash down with dark & stormies and watch the sun set (only Goslings and Barritts please).

Quick, easy and very little cleanup.

And I too want to sail on Chef's boat! How big is your cockpit?

Tiny 35 C&C but we can stow you in the dinghy on davits, maybe we can meet up in Myers Hole next yearon our way to the LI Sound or back from it Jim.

Our philospohy is we sail well, we eat well, we drink well....we sleep well. Then we wake up and do it again, Just because we are on a sailboat doesnt mean we give up fresh food and creative dishes. We enjoy our grill the most. Seafoood on the grill is great, I like your corn idea, especially Jersey Silver Queen. We keep some apple and cherry wood chips on the boat too. Soak a small handfull in water for 10 minues and once the grill is hot throw them on. Gives you food amazing flavor

Our last club raft up we had 6 boats anchored off of a Sundeer 62. Myself and all the first mates made multiple sushi/ sashimi platters. It was a blast. Some of them had never even eaten it before.

Right now we are doing a lot of fruit grilling. grilled Golden Pineapple rings, grilled peach quarters, grilled quartered apples, and grilled plums. Grill them first lightly....dipp them in rum and throw them for 30 seconds on the grill till they flash and the alcohol burns off. Eat plain or put over vanilla ice cream

Re: Best Boat Snack

OK, someone mentioned corn...

Corn on the cob, in the husk. Soak for half an hour or longer in sea water. Throw it on the grill, still in the husk.

When it's done, de-husk, roll it in a mix of olive oil, salt and cayenne pepper...mmmm
