I also got a belly from a yellowfin tuna that was 126 lbs that'll be along for the ride.
So I'm working at the fish market today and I'm in the back weighing up some mon chongs and this guy walks up holding this ugly fish and asks for me by name. I've never seen this dude before and I say I'm me. He say that he has something for me from Del... I use to work with Del a few years back and now he's a commercial fisherman! The guy gives me a 28 lb walu!!!!
I was also given a 10 lb kavakava by a different fisherman that I made some into poke. Here's all the fish cleaned and at home:
The two ziplock on the left are walu fillets. The back right Ziplock is two walu fillets in a brown sugar and kosher salt bribe (rub?), the middle right bag is the tuna bellies and the front right are three kavakava (Bonita) fillets.
I'm gonna vacuum pack and freeze the rest of the walu for making lau laus at a future date...
I'm gonna use my WSM 22.5 and amnts with pitmasters blend pellets.
I'm gonna be eating smoked walu and bagels tomorrow morning...
