Hook N Cook program offered at The Nauti Mermaid, Marker 92
The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village Executive Sous Chef Victoria Wenning said the Hook N Cook program began when the resort first opened in 2012. The program is offered at both The Nauti Mermaid and Marker 92.
“We started the Hook N Cook program to allow guests to sit back, relax and enjoy a freshly prepared meal after spending their day out on the water. We loved the idea of taking an authentic Floridian activity like fishing and combining it with a culinary element to provide a hands-on, fun way to enjoy a fresh catch,” she said. “The Hook N Cook program is offered year-round and is very popular with both our resort guests and the locals who love to fish.”
To participate in the program, the fish must be fully cleaned and ready to cook, as well as put on ice.
“Individuals can either call ahead on their way back to the docks, or they are more than welcome to show up at the restaurant with their cleaned/ready to prepare fish,” Wenning said.
The program is $25 per person and includes two sides, as well as either a house or Caesar salad. The sides include charred carrots, roasted potatoes and cauliflower.
“Our talented culinary team at both restaurants can prepare the fish to be broiled, grilled, blackened, baked or seared to guest’s preferences,” she said. “There is no limitation on what can be brought in to prepare, as long as it meets the program requirements of being fully cleaned. We have prepared all types of Gulf Coast seafood in the past.”
