DIY Down the Shore: Chris Painter’s Flukin’ Foil

photo 1

Fish, fish and more fish! But we’re certainly not complaining.

Especially not after drooling over the pictures of Il Pittore chef Chris Painter’s addition to our summer recipe roundup. Down the shore, you’re likely to get the freshest seafood straight off the boat. So why not take advantage of it? Painter’s Flukin’ Foil sounds like something to try after a long day of fishing, or even just sunning on the beach. Extra kudos to those who use their own catch, but Jersey has some pretty good fish markets in case you weren’t so lucky with your line.

1-2-web

For today’s installment of the DIY recipe round-up we’re finishing up with a classic. A mojito. Paul McDonald of Society Hill Society shared his spin on the summer classic. We’re not only fans of the name, Quasimohido, but the cucumber syrup which offers a fresh flavor that isn’t typical to this summertime favorite. The prep time for this drink might be a little longer than you’re used to, but you won’t regret it when you’re down the shore with drink in hand.
