Nice fish Duds. Size estimate? Trolling? Good fight? Looks like it was well worth the trip.

Great golden trevally - I bet it put in a good fight. I am finding it increasingly hard to find anything to dislike about trevally.

Looks like you got out to Middle Reef - that where that trevally came from? Coles prawns 100m past the marker?

Also how did the new sailing and outrigger mods work out?

You let go the best eating of the lot unfortunately. Fillet, cut out bones and blood line, make slices about 5mm thick. Marinate overnight in lime juice with a dash of Japanese mayonnaise, fish sauce, sugar, ginger and galic. Make a salad of very finely sliced celery, red onions, coriander and some chunks of avocado. Mix the fish and marinade into the salad. One of the best things you'll ever taste :wink:

Nice fish mate, how was the weather
defiantly prefer grunter over trev in my opinion

thinly sliced, on a big plate and pour over with sizzling hot garlic chilli oil. Drip with salted
coconut cream. Throw chopped spring onions on top and squeeze lemon to finish
is a good one to try

I'd have to agree with you for cooked fish. Grunter is great - better than barra. Though a trevally not too big and well cared for, particularly golden and gold-spot (turrum) trevally are pretty darn good as a fried fillet.

But done cerviche style trevally is superb - the best fish for this dish IMHO. In all of the islander cultures they will take trevally or queenfish over other options (even trout!) most days to make nummas or Kokonda from. Done right it is incredibly delicious and you never get sick of it. I've also made cerviche with grunter - it was great but not as good as trevally.

I like the sounds of the thinly sliced fish cooked with hot oil - going to try that someday.

Anyway, full agreement Duds1966 that that is a cracking fish.

Though it reads as if you kept the Slatey - really? - that is one fish I know no ways to prepare it to not taste like crap.

:lol: you out do even me on trying everything.

Catfish is often quite good - just a very different texture to other fish. Wolf Herring is great quality flesh, just very bony. Never tried remora and would never try moray eel (i do very much like the regular variety of eel however). Still not 100% convinced on the slatey bream.
