Bob Baumhower’s Kingfish Spread

Cut the cleaned Kingfish meat into 1-inch squares.

Place 2 gallons of water and 1 cup of Kosher salt in a 3-gallon pot and turn on high. Once water is at a rolling boil, place cleaned Kingfish meat in rolling boil and mix well to make sure no meat is stuck together. Set timer for 4 minutes and place colander in sink.

Once the timer has gone off, check the fish to confirm the biggest pieces are all the way cooked through. If the meat is cooked, turn off the boil.

Pour water and fish into colander. Rinse fish with cold water and drain well, then place in refrigerator to cool.

Dice the onions, celery, and bell pepper into a small dice. Measure and place the mayonnaise in a large mixing bowl. Add all of the ingredients (except for the fish) and mix well.

Take Kingfish out of the refrigerator and add it to the mixture. Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Chill and serve with fresh vegetables and crackers.
