Red Snapper, Aruba (2014)

I’ve posted about Zeerover in Savaneta, Aruba, DWI several times before. Well, here’s a first hand look at some poor red snapper going through the saw in preparation for a fresh meal.

If you like fish, it doesn’t get any fresher than that. Of course, at Zeerover, you’ll have one beautiful view of the Caribbean as well, including the tankers off shore. Stop by for some Aruba local flavor.

I stopped into Zeerover yesterday looking for some friends. In the well, I found some fish on the slab ready for the filet knife. Check them out:

In a matter of minutes, these fished were sliced into pieces. The crabs, pelicans, and one happy cat were feasting on the remnants. Of course, the crowd was thrilled, too. Doesn’t get any fresher than that. Enjoy your visit to Aruba, and check out places like this for a visit to the Caribbean as it always was, and still is.
