Which fish should you NOT eat??

Post by Rigracer »

hi there,

Are there any fish that you should really not eat?

Where are garfish in this league of things?

Cheers,

Rob. :D

The French seem to like Weavers ,cause they,re always on the fish stall.Pretty fish close up but a bit of a pain if trodden on(so says the wife who met one at Winchelsea last year)40 minutes of agony.No stamina these women!!! Anyone got a recipe?.

recipe for weavers.

It may sound a bit wierd but you will require:

1 x medium weaver.
1 x carrot
1 x stick of celery
1/2 an onion
2 cloves
2 cloves of garlic
salt & pepper to taste
1 pint of water or fish stock for better favour
1/2 a brick

Cut head off fish and discard - trim off all spines and fins - roughly chop all veg - add all ingredients to water/stock and bring to the boil - simmer gently for aprox 2 hours or until all ingredients have broken up and it resembles thick soup - strain through a collinder and EAT BRICK.

Enjoy

Mark

OK bit of sense from my own experience, don't bother with these:
1. Female smoothounds - taste yuck because they accumulate uric acid in their flesh. Actually so do big males but up to about 6 pounds they are not too bad.
2. Flounders - taste muddy especially those caught in harbours. Some folk eat them but why bother when there is plenty of good stuff.
3. Wrasse - Not that wonderful and full of bones.
4. Pollack - Actually the small ones are just about acceptable but once they get over about 3 lbs, they are virtually tastless so I don't bother.
5. Pouting - Occasionally you may get one which is not too bad but mostly they are rubbish.
6. All small fish - it is not playing the game or unsporting if you will and you will not get much meat off them. Chuck them back to grow to a decent size.
