    Really nice fish recipies

    Living in northland and loving fishing I am blessed with an abundance of fish allmost year round, the problem bieng is my creativity when it comes to cooking fish is pretty limited, apart from pan fried in either flour/egg/breadcrumb, or butter or chopped into small chunks and put into a stirfry asian style

    my usuals are getting pretty boring and really it is a waste of good snapper/butterfish to let it sit in the freezer
    its getting to the point where I have set out on an entire fishing trip to not catch more than 3 fish, as id rather them out there getting bigger than getting freezer burnt

    what im after is some gamechanging recipies, your favorites that are the nice tasting different ones to what I allready do to make fish a bit nicer again

    My favorite is pan fryd snapper on mashed spud with holendase sauce over it, not exactly game changing but yum all the same.

    Bill999 you should send a PM to the resident forum chef, Angus. I am sure he would rise to this challenge.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I like fillet/skin and put in a mix of lemon pepper/flour then onto the pan. Pretty similar to what you do.

    Whole fish of just about any species, stuffed with a few herbs and butter then wrapped in foil and baked. Yes, you do still have to deal to the bones and skin, but far less flesh gets wasted.

    Who would challenge a Penguin when it comes to knowing how to eat fish? That is your primary diet is it not?

    Filletting seems to be the kiwi way on the whole. Where i was dragged up, we often had the entire fish, partly due to the small average size I guess Lots of flatfish and mackerel etc.

    I like em roman style, especially with whole flounder. Cooking it in maranara sauce and leeks, maybe some chickpeas and then serving over spaghetti

    I just had a quick lunch of panfried snapper, stuffed into a panini full of taretare sauce.
    once again not game changing but a quick 10min meal on the run
    it was delicious but fish is getting so boring.
    yet I have this urge to go catch some more
