How do you cook your fish?
I've been catching alot of fresh fish lately and i've just been rolling them in flour, salt and pepper, either cut into fillets and wings or just whole. Whole is better imo
I've heard of baking them with lemon and whatnot, but it seems kind of bland
you are going to need to employ both broiling and steaming to introduce flavor to the meat and skin. use of acids will also help cook without having to throw it into a stew. you can experiment by alternating between both steaming and broiling multiple times and youll notice it develops in some way every time, similarly to frying multiple times
what kind of fish are you catching? salt water? fresh water?
either way, on salt water fish with a distinctive lateral line "unzip" it and throw it away. i like to shave the scales and leave some skin on and just throw it on the grill for just a little bit on the skin side and even less on the other. seasoning with some pepper and lime.
on fresh water fish, same thing about the lateral line. but for trout and such, just clean it and stuff it with some citrus and herbs. then put it under pressure and heat to retain the moisture. dont be afraid to take it out too early. overcooked fish is the worst.
There are loads of brown trout in the river that I fish. (pic)
I gut them immediately and scale them. If it's summer, I build a fire and add a bit of lemon juice and various herbs - often dill, with whatever I've got. And bake them in tin foil. But it's too cold just now.
I just go out catch them, kill them quick by holding the tail and banging their head against a rock.
When I get home, then I can be a bit more imaginative with the way I cook them.
In summer, we get salmon. They're really tasty.
I'm so jealous, where the hell is that?
