Fish preparation

Postby dirtridn2010 » 09 Sep 2015, 23:07

I was introduced to a neat little method of readying fish for cooking earlier this year.
While it is new to me, you guys may already know about it.
i was told to mix generous amounts of LEMON JUICE(bottled stuff is fine), SUGAR and some water.
put it into a container with the fish fillets and leave for 4-6 hours, or even overnight.

This was suggested to us by a old fella who has been fishing since the dawn of time(well almost)!

He says it makes the fish taste great.
My wife and I tried it on Sand whiting fillets and BlackFish fillets while up at Lake Conjola.
Now no big deal so far, but i did have to fillet the fish myself, and I know that I am not good enough to get all the bones out.
Once we cooked up this fish in a Pan we were amazed to find that NONE of the fish fillets we ate had any bones....NONE.
Now as I said I ain't that good.....but NO bones.
The fish tasted great, with just a hint of lemon.
Maybe it is a chemical reaction between the Lemon and the Sugar with he bones, I don't know.
But As I said...No BONES!

Enjoy, we did!!
Happy Yakking !!

try doing some King George Whiting by filleting them and removing the rib cage and skinning them

put them in fresh lemon juice and leave in the fridge for couple of hours

serve with salad -- no need to cook them the lemon does that for you
