Eating Bluefish

Uploaded on February 18, 2009

Not sure how many people on here catch bluefish, and for that matter im not sure how many people on here catch bluefish and think of eating them, BUT... They are awesome eating if prepared correctly. I learned for a Portuguese friend of mine that the key is to bleed them completely immediately after catching. After that...i like to fillet them and marinate them in Italian dressing. After marinating for a couple hours, grill them skin side down until the flesh is cooked through and flaky. Some people just think they are too oily, but try this trick and see what they say. Enjoy.

Yumm!! gonna give ur recipe a try. We -my sons and I when I was a remote LE ranger in fla would catch a fair share of blues during the seasonal run.We would cook them up w/usually one or 2 neighbor familys and use my Grandma's recipe. It was to coat both sides w/maynoise, a lil or lot?/ ole bay seasoning and wrap them in tin foil and cook over fire or N BBQ pit. Rwsist the urge to peek or mess w/um for 20-25 minutes, along w/ur baking potatoes and corn if N season and voila a healthy and m,ost important 2Us a low cost meal!! works great on Jack and mackeral also.Try it u'll like it!! Carry ON!! YOC

Snapper blues make the best chowder I've ever made or eaten.

3 lb. of fileted, boned, skinned and cubed bluefish
3 large potatoes cut in one inch cubes
2 med. onions chopped
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp Old Bay
Salt & pepper
one qt. whole milk
2 Tbsp butter

Saute fish and onions in butter in a large enough pot until onions are clear. Add potatoes and other ingredients with enough water to cover and cook until potatoes are tender. Add milk and heat until almost boiling. Melt another pat of butter on top and serve with saltines.

I've never tried this with large blues, but it should work.
