Try using garlic salt and toss in a slice of jalapeno if you like that kind of thing... On a side note I like kosher salt... It seems to have a cleaner flavor. Table salt has iodine and it throws off the saltiness a little.

Beautiful fish, I would sure like to have some of those fillets vacupacked and sitting in my freezer.


BTW we never used iodized salt when canning.  The iodine makes the canning liquids cloudy.  You can use any non-iodized salt.  Canning salt is ground a bit finer but non-iodized table salt is fine.
