I think this recipe of Azelias is a very good & easy one (as well as being GF) & sounds very tasty; practical too as it is a one pot meal. I am definitely going to try it next weekend, or maybe before if I can find whereabouts of the fish fillets in my freezer!!  smile

Like the look of that one- as the fish gets just a minute it won't have time to develop the "off notes" that I hate- They would not smell bad for most people, I'm just sensitive to fish cooked in sauces and the characteristic smell that results.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

Any ideas of what to do with small whole fish? They are a bit bony if just fried, although they taste nice enough.cheers

I think fish bones are something you have to live with if you want to eat fish.

Depending on the fish but simply cooked is best. 

Grilled with a little butter and a small sprinkle of herbs is nice. Gutted or gutted and filleted is up to you.

Nothing nicer than a fresh mackerel (and I mean caught that afternoon) grilled with butter.

Also nice steamed, you can buy microwave steamer bags that work well. Don't cook too long though,  no more than a couple of minutes.

Other fish that has a firmer flesh can go also go in stews and pies. Dogfish (aka rock salmon or huss) makes a great curry. These can also be battered and fried.

 

Black Bream is a really nice fish that grills well as does Gar Fish. One note about the gar fish, their bones are bright green.

Give the cats a treat Joanna....or kiss of life and into a fish tank.  If your OH caught them tell him to throw them back and not to come home until he can present you with something worth applying your expertise to.....winkwink....big_laugh

This dish of salmon with soba noodles & pak choi sound good. Soba noodles should be made of pure buckwheat flour but check that yours don't have wheat added if you are GF, some makes are not pure. I love Japanese food so this is a recipe for me as I try to eat fish at least twice a week.

Cats may indeed get a treat. These little fish are so small. Just wondering if I cook them for oodles of time in the slow cooker, will those fish bones become like those in the tins, really soft and edible?

I will have to try and make the Soba noodles, we have plenty of buckwheat. Just needs processing to get some flourcheers
