African Pompano

Went to the Bahamas this weekend and caught two African Pompano's. Each was about 10 to 12lbs. Just wondering how good they are to eat and how best to cook them.

    I ate one from the Bahamas and remembered it as good to eat. Can't recall how we cooked it. Might want to Google that.

    anyway you cook fish is good as long as it's fried
    The worst day of fishing is still better than the best day of work:\

    Africans are very good......treat them just as you would any other jack or firm fleshed fish.

    Yeah, they sure are. All gone. I had it as Sashimi and simply fried some. It was by far one of the best tasting fish i've ever had. It was a moist white meat. Sure hope I catch more of them.

    Wrecks is what I would have thought but these were caught in 30ft of water fishing for Yellowtail.
