Hunting for Fish
Not by myself, but here's a nice catch a couple spearfishermen brought in off Diamond Head beach (way beyond and out of the restricted DH Lighthouse-to-Natatorium zone) this past Easter Sunday...
Menpachi (the smaller red fish), Red Uhu, Kala (the big one with the speared tail hidden behind) & Po'opa'a
Different angle, so you can see the Kala...
Red Uhu, Kala (the one with the horn on the head), Po'opa'a and Menpachi (behind)
The Menpachi is excellent simply pan-fried with salt and pepper, or you can roll the whole thing in flour and deep fry it whole. The red Uhu can be cut into fillet and cooked with Soy Sauce, Ginger and Garlic or thown on the Hibachi (charcoal grill). The Kala is best thrown right on the grill (don't gut it or it will stink the whole fish up). The Po'opa'a is often used in soups. My favorite is the Menpachi.
He said a small tiger shark took his first group of fish, probably because one the fish was still alive and spazzing, attracting the shark.
Guess we know what these fisherman were having for Easter dinner!
