    Dinner tonight courtesy of Lees Valley and the first pig I shot, bitter sweet as it is pretty much the last of my wild pork, but so damn tasty served up with apple sauce.

    I cheat. While my pork is resting and the gravy is getting made I grill it.

    Kahawai curry for us last night. We don't normally eat it*, but I found a fillet in the freezer. It took a bit of head scratching to work out how it ended up there, then I remembered my dirty bait fishing mate caught it. It was gut hooked and bleeding out. I hate waste, so brought it home and filleted it. It was pretty good in the curry.




    *Please don't say it's all about preparation. All my fish are ikied, bled and iced straightaway, then vacuum packed if not eaten fresh. We're just not keen on it. It's good smoked, but billy goat testicles are probably good smoked! Besides, I can usually catch snapper to order!

    I wish I knew a way to cook Kahawai that was good every time. They don't freeze well and cooked some fish are great and others are terrible caught the same day. The only way I like all of them is raw with wasabi and soya.

    Exactly the same way @GWH did his rabbit. Thicken sauce part a bit first add Fish cook till tender (not too long)
    I prefer the fish steaked and just a very quick sear to colour it before adding to the sauce. But I know some are not keen on dealing with the bones.

    Thanks for your answer @spada, after I posted the question, a feeling of the most remorseful sickening dread came over me as I realised the implications - that Dundee could, and may yet post a photo of a Kahawai stranded and beached in a shallow sea of Watties

    @Moa Hunter No worries mate.
    I've noticed there's quite a bit of Moses parting the red sea on this thread. But hey it takes all sorts

    Mind you if you lead with your chin someones going to hit it... still time yet
