While the shrimp and corn on the cob were getting ready to go into the boil, David put on a few Rock Fish fillets and the asparagus I had prepped. Believe it or not, we had never grilled asparagus at home over the open coals. I don’t know why, because they were so yummy!

He basted the fish with a special sauce he uses when grilling fish. He made this up for me back in the day and really impressed me with it. I grew up on fried fish and had never eaten grilled fish much. When I asked David what he called the sauce, he said he didn’t know. He had stolen the recipe from an old fishing buddy of his. So I decided I would name it: “Al’s Stolen Fish Sauce“. Named after the fishing buddy he stole it from.

Even though we had a bottle of cocktail sauce in the refrigerator, we decided to make some from scratch. If you have never have fresh cocktail sauce before, you are missing out! It is so much better fresh!!
