There are also a lot of people who really know what they're doing on a boat. That doesn't mean they know what they're doing with very different types of fish in the kitchen.

Anyone who can cook red snapper & grouper really well but not mackerels, drum, bonito or anything else is probably a very good fisherman. Full stop.

They are good fish. It just takes more skill, and a wider culinary vocabulary of recipes, ingredients, and techniques than the average home cook may be willing to dig into.

Going toward asian ingredients and flavors is a great way to broaden the horizon.




The way Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and Greek chefs address fish is also very different than in the USA, and there's a lot to be observed there too.

Those are people who don’t catfish.
They don’t have a choice.

Good luck eating remoras. When sharks, flipper and Asians won't touch it, no recipe can save it.
I will save you all the hardhead catfish you want.

I'm not saying I keep everything, but shitting on black drum's just a bit too far over the line.

You got bluefish, bonito or Crevalle's I'll take em. You're looking at bonito in that picture.

Bled it out, pulled the top loins off and seared the skin black with a torch. That's how I learned in Japan.

You know the Japanese each so much trash fish because they pretty well already ate most of decent fish.

Funny thing. If someone likes a different kind or wine or mixed drink or soup or chili, an expression of their opinion might get a response of other people's opinions, but it rarely devolves into an outright assertion that the original preference is fundamentally wrong and represents a personality of character defect (other than lite beer).

My family has been enjoying bull black drum since I was a boy. We use it interchangeably with bull redfish in a number of recipes. Bull redfish and drum occupy a different niche from most other species in our family menu. Both are healthy and relatively plentiful in our preferred waters. They provide a nice alternative to most of the tender and flaky choices, and also allow us to eat fish twice a week (doctor's health recommendation) while abiding by the consumption advisories for some of the other waters we fish.

Funny thing is...YOU are the one who took offense not long ago because someone joked that Pornhub was down...and presented it as a character defect. Perhaps you should practice what you preach...or read the Book , Luke 7:1-5.

I could care less what you eat. I eat squirrels, but I am not going to do a tutorial on skinning out Norway or wharf rats because they are in the same family, nor extol the virtues and benefits of possum and turnip roots because my grandmother ate them during the depression.

very well stated. i totally concur. hypocrisy will certainly help your situation when you defend your argument.

Thats because With Wine, mixed drinks,soup, and chilli, You don’t have to remove the worms before you eat or drink it....Just as a ”first thing that comes to mind” thought.
