We usually grill ours. Marinade with your choice of flavor and grill. They make good fish dip if you smoke the fillets also.

I've never liked it, so just catch & release. Hoping to hear some good recipes that I can try.

I'll keep one or two to smoke. I make smoked fish dip. Other than that I throw them back.

lay fish skin side down on flat grill. Put one T. butter on fish and cover with lots of Ragin Blaze. Grill 4-6 minutes until skin starts to separate. Flip fish and repeat butter and Ragin Blaze. When fish starts to flake it is done. Let stand 5-10 minutes and serve. It is awesome. Makes a great sandwich as well.

It frys up fine. I cut all red meat and the bones out. Dredge 3 inch strips in beer batter and saltine crackers. A little tarter sauce and eat till stuffed. I treat it like sand trout. It goes into an ice bath and never gets warm again until the grease. Some may have to get past the off white color of the meat.

I liked to keep it simple and fry them. One of my favorite eating fish.

How big? Were they big enough to steak out?

If it's fillets - soak them in whole milk for about 20-30 mins, mix up panko breadcrumbs, canjun seasoning and a little garlic, single-dredge, pan sear in a good oil - grapeseed or something like that, drop it on a decent toasted roll with tomato and lettuce - some aioli if you're feeling fancy.

We usually steak ours out and grill. Lots of good marinades out there.

I steak the fillets and leave the skin on. I marinate them in zesty italian salad dressing a good while before cooking (hours not minutes). I take them from the marinade and squeeze some lemons and sprinkle with some tonys. Grill it with the skin down.

One of the guides I have gone with said the best way he found was to cut the filet into strips and wrap in jalapeño, cream cheese, bacon and grill. Just like a dove

I enjoyed it that way. Wasn’t a big fan of it grilled

When bacon is done, eat bacon, cream cheese and jalepeno. Throw away the fish.
