My husband, my son, and our friend all left the house dark and early this morning at 5am to go fishing. They came home, and my son tells me that his dad caught a fish with his bare hands, and they all point me to the large white cooler full of ice and...
I surfed the web. I have never done this before, so I did some searching, and I found this website, which I liked very much. It sounded so simple...haha.
I put the head on a plate in the kitchen, so I didn't have to look into her eyes. (gender? no idea) I thought I snapped a picture of her, but apparently I couldn't bring myself to do it.
So the next thing it says to do is to stick your big knife in there to make a cut before you use your super-sharp-bendy knife to cut.
Then you use super sharpy to cut your filet. I used my Trimmer here. Not so good.
Then I had this monster piece left...with tons of meat on it...so...
I did the smart thing. I called my mom! She said to make some fish stock out of it! Brilliant! So, the rest of that meat that I can't get off (because I don't have a sharp enough knife, probably) goes to a stock (the head, too!).
To the stock, I added a bunch of salt, some oregano, some parsley, pepper, and bay leaf.
It smelled awesome very quickly. I wish I could post the smell for you.
