Chapter 89 Part 1 Seafood
After a few more days of traveling, they can now see the sea from a distance. When the sea is closer, the smell of the sea in the air signifies that they have arrived at their destination.
At the moment, Lin Mu and the baby are sitting on Patrik as they flew to the sea in front of them. Lin Mu said happily, “Hahaha~ Patrik, we are here! Keep flying, let’s look at the sea from the top.”
As a person from the modern world, Lin Mu has a lot of opportunities to go to the beach. He has also experienced sailing on a boat, but he has never looked down at the blue ocean from above.
Seeing how happy Lin Mu is, Patrik continued to fly, high or low, fast or slow, according to Lin Mu’s requirements. He did it for some time, satisfying Lin Mu’s wishes in flying in the air.
“Look, that’s a dolphin.”
Lin Mu pointedly saw a dozen dolphins playing and spitting water not far away. Of course, there is also that wonderful dolphin sound. The most important thing is comparing to sharks, dolphins are way cuter, so Lin Mu doesn’t like seeing those sharks gradually swimming towards the dolphins. Maybe they also felt the danger, those dolphins that were having fun earlier immediately dispersed and fled. Lin Mu saw that the dolphin group is gone, and sighed with regret with the baby, “Patrik, let’s go back to the beach.”
Sun, beach, coconut grove… Lin Mu, who is lying on the clean and exquisite beach, is basking in the sun. The entire scenery is very beautiful. Of course, if there is more sea breeze, it would be even better.
Because they don’t have sunscreen here, Lin Mu and the baby couldn’t bear staying in the sun so they moved their resting spot to the nearby woods. They felt quite thirsty, but there wasn’t any fresh water nearby. Looking up at the coconuts hanging on the coconut trees, Lin Mu asked Patrik to pick some of them. Patrik is also given the task of opening the coconuts as he has good knife skills. They didn’t have straws, so Lin Mu poured the coconut water into a bowl and drank from it. Everyone like the refreshingly sweet taste, and the baby looked especially happy to drink it. They drank more of the coconut water until their thirst is sated.
Lying comfortably on the blanket, and enjoying a breeze that blows from time to time, the comfortable feeling is simply indescribable.
When Lin Mu said that he wanted to go to the beach, the main reason is to eat seafood. In this world, there isn’t any entertainment available. There are no novels, no movies, no nightlife with bright lights, so eating has become everyone’s favorite hobby. They used to eat to fill the stomach, but now they eat to enjoy the delicious taste. On the other hand, there are many varieties here. After Lin Mu ate many kinds of meat, various eggs, and many kinds of vegetables, he thought of seafood.
Seawater fish, crabs, oysters… All kinds of delicious seafood waiting to be eaten. Lin Mu wanted to drool as he thought about it. Hence, along the way, he has accumulated a lot of spices specifically to cook seafood during his time on the beach. When it’s time for lunch, Lin Mu naturally asked Patrik to go to the sea to catch fish. As for Lin Mu, he took the baby’s little hand and walked along the beach to pick up shells. One adult and one child played on the beach, kicking the waves; smiling happily.
Lin Mu knew that the fish in this world is bigger, but he still gets surprised when he saw Patrik throw a big fish that is more than 1 meter long onto the beach. The fish is very long, but it is not very wide, just long. It looks like a hairtail fish, but not exactly the same when he looked closer. The fish is more than 20 centimeters wide.
“This fish is so big! It’s enough for us to eat!”
“Big… Big…” The short baby patted the big fish with his little hand.
“There are many large fishes like this in the sea, and most of them are bigger than this kind of fish. But considering our food intake, I only caught this one. I also saw some beastman hunting fishes in the sea just now. They should be from a nearby tribe.”
As soon as Lin Mu heard that Patrik saw other beastmen, he turned to look at the sea. Apart from the occasional tumbling waves, he did not see anyone.
Perhaps knowing Lin Mu’s thoughts, Patrik said, “They didn’t go down from here.”
Lin Mu nodded. It’s no surprise that there is a tribe by the sea, so he didn’t want to put his attention on the matter. Right now, he is thinking about how to eat this big fish.
The fish’s head and tail will be used to make fish soup. Truth to be told, Lin Mu really wants to eat spicy mala fish head. Unfortunately, this cooking method uses too much chili. He didn’t bring much and has already consumed half of it along the way. Though he found some green peppers previously, they cannot be stored for more than a few days so the green peppers were eaten up too. He and Patrik both like spicy food, and he could only hope that peppers can be found nearby when they settle down on the beach.
Lin Mu pointed to the large stone not far away and said, “Patrik, you can go to the back of the stone to clean the fish. I will go to the forest to collect some firewood.”
“You should stay here with the baby and wait for me to clean the fish. After that, I will pick up the firewood. You just need to cook.” They are not familiar with this place so Patrik will not rest assured if Lin Mu left his line of sight.
Lin Mu thought about the same thing after Patrik said that. He is not familiar with this place so he should not run around with the baby. Nodded, Lin Mu agreed. Then he brought the baby to pick up small crabs on the beach. These crabs are very small, so they won’t be eating them. Lin Mu just pick it to play with the baby.
Patrik cleaned the fish quickly, and came out from behind the big rock, “How do you want me to cut it?”
“Cut the fish head and tail to make soup. Then split the fish into two halves. I planned to braise one half and steam the other half. Please cut the meat into slices for me. Also, don’t throw away the fish bones. I will use them to make fried fish bones for you.”
Patrik complied. He cut the meat according to the request and swiftly because he often did it. It didn’t take long to cut them and put them in large bowls.
Lin Mu wants to start on the meat that needs to be marinated, so he put the baby on the blanket next to him. Then he took out a small fruit and said, “Baby, dad is going to start cooking. Play here by yourself first.” Lin Mu went to cook after saying that.
First, Lin Mu marinated the fish bones with condiments. Then he looked at the fish fillets and decided to take out some to make fried fish fillets. So he marinates them and puts them aside for later use. As for the other slices, Lin Mu began to prepare the necessary ingredients.
When Patrik came back, Lin Mu just prepared everything he needed. Patrik put the firewood next to the simple stove he made and handed Lin Mu the vegetables and fruits he picked. Of course, there were a few eggs for the baby as well. Lin Mu planned to make steamed egg custard for little Wu Fan to eat. Fortunately, Wu Fan hasn’t got tired of eating eggs yet after eating them for so long.
For vegetables, Patrik only brought back a kind of vegetable. The leaves were very big, and they taste a bit like spinach. So, Lin Mu called it Big leaf veggie.
“Go and fetch some water for me. Just get it from the small river we saw before this.” Lin Mu saw a river not far away when they came to the beach, so their water problem is solved.
When Patrik saw how serious Lin Mu looked as he prepared things for cooking, he couldn’t help but kissed him. “Alright.”
Lin Mu immediately turned around to look at the baby. Seeing that the baby blinked his big eyes and looked at them curiously, Lin Mu couldn’t help blushing. He hit Patrik and muttered, “Really now, didn’t you see that the baby is here? What to do if the baby learned bad things?”
Patrik complained inwardly, ‘But he is always there though?’ By now, Patrik can completely understand the meaning of the ‘light bulb’ Lin Mu said before. Unfortunately, he can’t do anything about it and has to go fetch water in resignation. In his mind, he wanted to quickly return to the tribe. He just has to get a little cub to play with the baby and Lin Mu will have time to be intimate with him. He used to laugh at Damon in his heart that Ria’s child is very sticky to Ria, causing Damon’s desire to be unsatisfied. At that time, he thought that he and Lin Mu might not have any children to interfere with them. However, they have children now, so it’s his turn to endure the bitterness. While fetching water, Patrik is thinking about how he can eat Lin Mu for once, while Lin Mu is playing with the baby. For safety reasons, Patrik went and return as fast as he could, even before Lin Mu could properly play with the baby.
“Play by yourself, Baby. Dad will steam the egg custard for you.”
Actually, whenever Lin Mu is cooking, the baby is very obedient. He played with himself without making any noise or ruckus. Maybe it’s because he knew that his dad is cooking food for him.
Patrik made 3 large wooden pots and 3 large stone pots when they reached the beach. They had 2 clay pots in hand, so it is not a problem for them to cook. Using 2 pots at the same time, Lin Mu decided to make braised fish and steamed fish first, and then fry fish fillets. As for the fried fish bones, those are meant to be their afternoon teatime, so Lin Mu will fry them last. As for the baby’s custard, it is currently steaming in a short-mouth crock.
On the beach, the smell of fish cooking drifted with the sea breeze and attracted the attention of several beastmen. It turned out that there is a group of beastmen on the beach who just finished hunting in the sea, about more than 200 meters away from Lin Mu’s spot. The group consists of 3 adults and 2 youngsters, and these people are the beastman that Patrik met in the sea earlier. Not sure what tribe they are from, and not sure why they didn’t return to their tribe during lunch time. At this moment, the adults are cleaning the fish they had caught from the sea, preparing to grill the fish for lunch.
