Flathead Fillets are yummy 😋

X 2


We bought and cooked a kilo of flathead yesterday for tucker.

$45 a kilo!

I reckon that's a ridiculous price but it's an awesome tasting fish which the kids love to eat with salt and freshly squeezed lemon.

NB Our fishmonger is a Greek guy who sells super fresh quality stuff. Always.



Yes, you have to know your fishmonger, mine rings me up when fresh shark is in, shark is very under rated, i could live on it, no bones and firm texture, i am feasting on tonight.

I have had leather jacket, its OK, could even be mistaken for crayfish.
Well someone told me they could cook it in a certain way and I would not be able to tell the difference.

I have eaten way too many crays to be fooled, but it was good all the same.

Leather jacket is a very sweet meat as is cray but  no matter how it is cooked it couldn't even come close to cray for mine, i like the way the jacket comes off and then thrown on the bbq whole, no scales, it takes quite a few to get a feed though.
They are one of the easiest fish to spear, they see you coming and stick their heads out of the rocks to check you out, head shots are easy.
They are a last resort for me and only catch them both on the boat or spearing if nothing else is available.


Well the first opportunity I get to spear some LeatherJackets to BBQ, I'll take it. Sounds like I should catch about x5 for a decent feed. On some dives, those Chinamen Leatherjackets can get in one's face like flies in the outback. A bit like Crayfish eh? Interesting. Due to the Sanctuary Zones in our area - the Crays are popping up a lot in good Packhorse style sizes. Maybe in 10 years they will be 'bountiful' again with the help of the big breeders.

I've always wondered if they were any good, but I've never seen one in QLD, even though they are in plague proportions on the tween coast. It's like they are afraid to cross the border. How do you catch them?

Blueys? As you probably know they may only be taken by line in NSW.

I hand feed them with urchin and you could probably catch them with your bare hands.

Maybe the spearos have depleted their stocks in QLD?

I expect so. It's a dramatic change at the border.

Red rock cod / red scorpion fish.

One of the best.


Really? Huh
I've been trying to 'tickle' them underwater or 'pat' them.
Gotta watch it when they turn side-on though or 'Ouch!'.
Never thought of them as 'tasty'. I wonder if they are similar to the Lionfish popularity (and necessity) over in the States for BBQ's?

Spanish Mackerell, yellowtail kings when I am down south.

I ate a few eel tailed catfish when I was younger. Definitely better than the common forktailed variety, but still tastes like mud. Probably depends where you get it from.

The quality of the 'diet' of the fish goes a long way. Would anyone eat a fish from Parramatta River - even if you get two-heads for the price of one?  Tongue

Yes - they're like that with Kangaroo & Emu meat as well.

I found out last week that the indigenous people in the Midwest dont eat the grey kangaroo ( Yugedda)
They only eat the red kangaroo because it does not stink.

They really look down their nose at the people down south eating that stinky grey.

I always knew that grey kangaroos had a strong smell ,,, never knew the reds didnt.

Anyway, back to delicious fish stories.

The best part of a Dhufish ( West Australian species) to eat is the air bag, I was dubious however when I tried it I am absolutely sold on it.

Just scrub it up, cut into small pieces and throw on the hotplate, it goes all caramelized and sticky and the flavour is magnificent.


Well 'Grey' is the 'processed' Kangaroo meat you find in the Supermarkets and even the Boutique (expensive) Gourmet Meat places (same meat - far different price!  Roll Eyes).
Red Kangaroos are not as common and like all species, you don't really get BIG reds like you used to long ago.
Wonder what they Aboriginals would say if 'Reds' became 'protected'?  Grin

Dhufish (Jewfish/Mulloway): You just made me pine for that big 1.5m one that came off my mate's spear the other day ...leaving me to eat crumby Basa at the shop!

And how sad is it that Coastal 'Fish n Chip' shops sell their stock Fish fillets as coming from Vietnam & overseas?  Tongue Tongue



Dhufish are not mulloway or (black) jew as known on the east coast.
They are a member of the pearl perch family hence they look like a big pearly.
They are delicious.

My go too fish are...
Red emperor.
Mangrove jack.
Spotty mackeral.
Snapper.
Dolphin. (Mahi mahi) not the playful dolphins. Calm down tree huggers.

All with a side of mud crab, sand crab or squid. Love fresh squid.

If I don't catch it...I won't eat it.

A good selection there,, did you catch your bag limit of blue swimmer crabs and whiting the other day Agnes, or just some puffer fish and an old boot?

Had flying fish in Timor Leste with some lime and sea salt. Very bony but nice flesh.

Garfish are delicious but very bony and fiddly to fillet
