Cooking redfish on the half shell....


What is the brown flesh on the bottom. It tastes fine but neophytes find it unappetizing. Any trick to getting rid of it?

Flesh right next to the bloodline/it is the bloodline.

After cooking it, just scrape it off the white flesh.

I'm pretty sure that's just the little bit of slow twitch muscle on the fish. Not really any different. Tell the neophytes to stop being little pussies.

You can run a limber blade along the bloodline to tail and get access to the back side leaving edges attached. It's not bad fresh, but a little time in freezer it gets funky.

Tell them it is the chocolate part of the fish - they will fight over it. When we were kids and mom would cut up a chicken to fry she would fry the livers and gizzards and tell us it was chocolate chicken and we would always argue over who got it.
