I adore Spanish Mackerel which has been freshly caught here in North Qld.and I have a friend who regularly goes out Reef Fishing,so I am lucky to get lots of Coral Trout,Sweet Lip and other reef fish.I know it is always super fresh,and I also where it has been caught,Yum! Price never comes into the equation for me with fish.It MUST be fresh,It MUST be Australian!!!
Yes!! I am so spoilt all yrear round with the climate allowing for growing such gorgeous and luscious fruits and vegies,and also having the very nicest friends who share their bounty as I do mine!!! No wonder I am so content with life!!!
When I was a kid growing up in Victoria in the 60's and 70's Flathead was one of the really common fish!!! Super cheap and plentiful!!!! Our friends who went fishing,even from the local pier, always came home with lots of this delicious fish,and we were lucky enough to be given a generous share!! Many folk would not even eat this wonderful fish,complaining about the bones.But like all fish,if we are careful,the bones will not be a problem. It truly amazes me how very expensive fish has become nowadays. It ios little wonder that I look back on my early years with immense enjoyment and actually now appreciate just how very spoilt we were where fresh food was concerned!
Always different. Depending on my cooking method I'm going to use.
I enjoy baked, shallow fried crumbed & grilled.
But many times just buy it 'on the way home' from a fabulous fish shop nearby. Then it's grilled! Schnapper, Barramundi or Perch. If cooking myself, Tailor's my fav or D/S Mullet, as crumbed shallow fried fillets. Do enjoy a Baked Fish of the Day, with Orange & Lemon slices. Or Tomato & Onion slices. Yum!
Whatever it is, plenty of LEMON juice squeezed over it!
