Default Best meal cooked on your boat?

What is the best meal cooked on your boat with the main ingredient being something you just harvested? Mine is red snapper on the half shell with fresh garlic, real butter and old bay blackening seasoning.

Maybe if I ran a 45 or larger sporty but I ain't running 40 miles offshore at 45-50mph with a grill in the rod holder. Mines pretty similar to above. I'd be lucky with bojangles

For me, it's definitely simple steamed lobster with melted butter. Pulled my last pot, ran about 10 minutes to an anchor spot, started the grill and the pot with water, steamed the lobster and melted the butter. Was eating him within an hour of being caught. Sweeter than any store bought lobster I've had.

Freshly caught yellow or bluefin tuna as sushi and seared with wasabi and soy sauce 75 miles offshore. Makes the ownership cost of a mid-size sporty sting a bit less.

Does cooking on the bank count? I used to Keep a cast iron skillet on the boat and we would hit a sand bar on the river and build a small fire for lunch. Fried bluegill, redbreast or catfish. I even had rattle snake once but I wasn't cooking.

Wahoo, tuna or cobia sashimi with soy sauce and wasabi. Clean filets on ice for a few minutes and have at it with a cold beer or in my case, A nice glass of Jefferson's small batch or Blantons.

We were tournament fishing, one of the mates showed up with a bag of shrimp that he'd gotten from his buddy on a shrimp boat that had just docked. That night we grilled them along with a freshly caught blackfin tuna and some steaks!! We might not have won the tournament, but we ate like kings!

Fresh caught grouper seared with garlic, onions, and potatoes in a secluded cove in the Keys.

Enjoyed with a stiff vodka and my beautiful wife at sunset.

Does cooking it in lime juice count?
Fresh Ceviche with minced onions, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, salt & pepper. Let cure a few hours. Any fish, lobster or shrimp will do.
Saltine crackers and a frosty beverage.

Had some awesome lobster and steak anchored up of Anegoda, BVI, but best was watching my buddy from KY pick up a Yellowfin eyeball that popped out after an errant gaff and down it like an Oyster Shooter. It was his first trip offshore. Norfolk Canyon. But yeah, fresh Bluefin right after you land it is hard to beat.
