I typically discard the rib portion of a lot of offshore fish and only keep the filet portions. Kids and wife don’t like picking around the bones. I hate throwing out all that meat when we get a big grouper.
ive been thinking about cooking and picking the meat out to use for tacos, hush puppies, vacuum seal for sandwiches.
Looking of some ideas on how to utilize more of the fish besides just filets. Cheers!
If the're room on the grill add the backbone as there's more meat there too.
As a old fishmonger I will admit that the waste of good meat that goes on because of how many folks are "scared of bones" is sad. I do get it on small fish.....but fish of 5-6# and up.....it's just a crime to waste the meat.
Good that you are thinking how to use it!
