A leading chef for seafood, Yanni Hassir, will be sharing his knowledge of the kitchen and recipes at the May 10 meeting of the Senior Anglers of Escondido.
The Southern California waterman’s passion extends from the ocean to his kitchen. Focusing on food borne illnesses that can come from bacteria and parasites due to improper fish handling, Hassir created FishermansBelly.com.
He has a growing list of seasonal SoCal sportfish recipes. He’ll share tips and tricks for cooking yellowtail, rockfish, white seabass, halibut, lobster, tuna, trout, and more. Every recipe is easy to follow and is made from everyday ingredients packed with flavor.
Hassir learned to cook from his mother who was a sous chef at the King’s Palace in Greece. He uses big flavors, imagination, and his latest catch, to please his family, friends, and of course, his own belly.
The club’s meetings are held the second Friday of each month, open to all anglers age 50 and above. For the May 10 meeting only, the club will be at the Escondido City Hall in the Mitchell Room, 201 N. Broadway, Escondido. Meetings start at 9:30 a.m.
Members of the club enjoy freshwater fishing challenges, summer saltwater charters, surf fishing tournaments, RV camping trips, picnics, and community service to help kids go fishing.
