How to prepare fresh Piranha...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
In case you catch any here's a good recipe:

Piranha in Tomato Sauce
Piranha, whole, cleaned and scaled
4 firm, ripe tomatoes
1 finely chopped medium-sized onion
2 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh parsley
half a cup of water
2 tablespoons of margarine
salt and pepper to taste
Peel and cut tomato into small cubes. Put half the tomatoes and onion into a large frying pan, place the cleaned Piranha on top then cover it with the rest of the tomato, onion and parsley. Add the salt and pepper.
Add half of the water and cook covered over a low fire for about 20 minutes or until the fish can be easily pierced with a fork.
Carefully remove the Piranha from the pan and place on a warm serving dish. Reduce the mixture in the frying pan for an additional 5 minutes until thickened and pour over the Piranha.

Goose, your recipe sounds good. I'm fairly certain I will not be able to find piranha....do you know of a substitute I could try? Thank you.smile.gif

Mike, your recipe sounds good too...I will try it with some of my shrimp.

That all sounds great, but aren't you all leaving out the most important step?

Prior to preparation, your finger should be removed from the fishes stomach to prevent cannibalism.

I'll be honest with you....the first time I read that I thought it was a joke! But of course it's not....you can substitute any firm white fish for the Piranha. But if someone does happen to catch a Piranha and tries this I would really like to know how it tastes...
