You should try being towed behind a bass boat in my little snark! Defending yourself can get to be a full time thing!
Carp needs be a little bigger so that the usable cuts are big enough. It is a moist wet fish
, so it takes things like being smoked well. If you are going to prep it in a more traditional manner, It needs to be put on paper towels or another absorbent type bed
and allowed to dry for a while on both sides for best effect.
Hung and bled like a cat, mudline removed, filleted with the skin gone, Traditional carp are some of the best eating out there. Deep fry and serve hot. Have not tried the Asian. Traditional carp fillets are preferable to some of the cheap offshore
fish varieties by far.
They are not 1 pound crappie fillets, but they are good food!
