I like to cut it up into small/medium sized steaks or medallions and coat in soy sauce, then grill or saute in a pan - not very long on each side. Immediately after taking off, put a little more soy sauce on and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with some wasabi fish sauce. You can find the sauce and seeds in the asian section of the super market.

Here's a couple good pictures:

It's best to use an EXTRA HOTcast iron skillet OUTSIDE on the grill (it'll smoke like crazy)

Thanks for the replys Wharf and Jim.. and this is probably going to sound retarded... but in the picture the fish basicly looks raw.

I assume thats the point? ( can you tell im a Inshore guy)

Yeah, you don't want to cook it all the way through. You can cook it more than that guy did in the pictures, but you want it to be pink and warm in the middle.

You can cook it "to taste" just like a steak. I like it just cooked just a little more than pictured, but not much... Try cooking it in a couple pieces you can make up you're own mind.

Blackfin and even Bonita, if that is what you managed to catch, make great dips and are also good with a salad. You'd be surprised at what a Bonita will taste like with all the blood lines trimmed out!
