Bluefish Soup Recipe

    Bluefish can be very good to eat if you cook them correctly. Its best to bleed the fish at the catch site and eat them that day. The older they get the more fishy they taste. Cut out any dark meat. Cook it inside foil on the grill. This steams the fish and the fishy taste steams away. Wouldn't suggest frying the fish. This method keeps the fishy taste locked in. Here is a favorite recipe of mine. South Carolina Bluefish soup:

    South Carolina Bluefish Soup
    1 ½ lb bluefish fillets
    ½ lb sliced bacon
    3 medium onions, chopped
    3 stalks celery, chopped
    2 medium potatoes, cubed
    1 can tomatoes (15 ounce)
    2 cans chicken broth
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 package frozen corn (10-ounces)
    1 package frozen sliced okra

    Cut bacon into small pieces and fry lightly. Add onion and celery and stir 2-3 minutes. Drain. Place bacon, onion, and celery in soup pot. Add potato, tomatoes, sugar, chicken broth, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil and reduce heat, simmer 1 hour. Add bluefish, okra, and corn. Simmer 20 more minutes. Serves with oyster crackers or saltines. Serves 5-6.

    Bleed em and ice em right away.
    Yes they are a little fishy but they are fish!!!:)

    Up north when you get 10 pound plus fish that eat bunker they are too oily and fishy. Nothing wrong with 2-3 pound blue handled right!

    I've had grilled blue fish before and don't think it's bad at all.

    the 1-5 pounders are the best. filet them and put some mustard butter and lemon on them, bake 300 like 10-15 minutes and its banging
  11. Sounds great, Ill have to try this next time I catch a Blue. I normally blled after caughting it and I have fried it. To me it doesnt have that fishy taste that everyone talks about.

    Looks good. Will have to give it a try.
    I always used to fry mine too. Guess I just didn’t have a sophisticated pallet with enough sense to throw them back:D

    I know most people do not like blues, but I actually enjoy them. Especially fried.

    Fried bluefish is really good, you just need to bleed them and ice them well, also cut out the bloodline.

    Smoked bluefish is also excellent. The oily flesh lends itself to not drying out while smoking
