Nice, The NZ Kingfish is pretty much the same as the California Yellowtail, or Hamachi in Japan. A very good eating Jack. The Florida Kingfish (Mackerel) makes a pretty good dish called escabeche, not to be confused with ceviche. Our King Mackerel are similar in looks to the Narrow Barred Mackerel, however, the Narrow Barred is better table fare. I differ from many on this forum and enjoy eating fresh Florida Kingfish on occasion.
Thank you for clarifying Jack, almost lost my lunch there.GCJetski, thank you for sharing your recipe, I will definitely try it. The lack of favorable response to your post is probably because our local fish named Kingfish (King Mackeral) is disgusting as is and the thought of it as civeche well nearly makes me hurl.I admittedly passed on reading several times before cause it sounded so disturbing. It does make really great smoked fish dip but other than that is considered inedible by many of us.There are those have aquired the taste, God bless you all.This is one classic recipe - Bake the kingfish on a cedar plank just like fancy restaurants do with Salmon. When cooked, toss the fish and eat the plank"Please see my posting Re beer battered King Mackerel.....Prepped properly and treated LIKE FOOD they can be delicious on the table.
