Seafood at the Tybee Island Condo

We visited Tybee Island, Ga recently and stayed in a condo on the beach.  Instead of eating out one night we decided to cook and eat on the balcony.  It was an adventure.  We bought the fish, red snapper, and shrimp along with the potatoes, salad and broccoli and brought it back to the condo.  It was then we noticed we had no oven for baking and smashing the red skins or broiling the fish.  We also found there was no salt or pepper in the place.  So, we improvised.  The snapper was pan fried in olive oil and garlic.  Fresh lemon was squeezed on before serving.  The potatoes were boiled and drizzled with oil.  There was no whisk in the kitchen so we dressed the salad with olive oil and lemon juice and tossed it.  The shrimp were boiled.  All in all not bad, but salt would definately have brightened the flavors.  The dry white wine we drank is visible too.

Those condos are variable in what they have--but never been in one without salt! I guess you could have boiled potatoes and shrimp in seawater...
