Dancing Marlin Grills Up A Seafood Splendor on FOX Good Day Chicago Our South Suburban Seafood Restaurant went mobile, and popped into downtown Chicago to demonstrate some seafood grilling tips to the FOX Good Day Chicago team in celebration of July being National Grilling Month.  On Tuesday, July 8th Co-owner Ed Nemec and Head Chef Jackson grilled and garnished juicy, jumbo prawns, fresh clams served in a rich butter sauce, Hawaiian grouper flown in direct from Hawaii, and steaming hot NY strip steak, served Tuscan-style, right outside of FOX Chicago’s studios! FOX Chicago’s Melody Mendez, Mark Strehl, and Corey McPherrin sampled these hot-off-the-grill items, and our team was delighted to introduce them to Dancing Marlin’s shared plates dining style.

Ed also shared his skewer secret- freezing them with water in a plastic bag prior to stacking them high with various meats and vegetables.  Ed was able to show how easy and fun it can be to bring your clams to the grill in the summer as opposed to the traditional, pan-sauteed preparation. tWiGvn3PUos4S8um6gfh1D6A5z6ulTa6KNlVl8a_tkg jXx2WCAW54YAK5AtdOTbDvvluD86zrIYzuCGjnmKANI You can’t have a proper sampling session without refreshments, Ed and Jackson supplied libations to sip on as the FOX Chicago team learned Dancing Marlin’s grilling tricks of the trade. Ed showcased glasses of full-bodied red and crisp white wine, ultra-filtered water, and handcrafted cocktails – all straight from our perfectly aerated taps! The Bikini Bottom cocktail with Bacardi pineapple rum, stirrings ginger, and fresh squeezed lemon juice was a hit! Our Tom Likes Cucumbers drink with Pearl cucumber vodka, Italian aperol, St. Germain edlerflower liqueur, and a splash of lemon juice was a crowd-pleaser as well. t50Yd14dfunonJ1CjUGH2Qe_LWJzZSDqAixKsE8UYJo We were thrilled to join FOX Good Day Chicago to do what we do best, Eat.
