    That looks fantastic Richie. Never seen anything cooked like that before, covered in salt. Maybe I can go down back and catch some trout to try it.

    Looks amazing!! I’m assuming the egg whites are uncooked? Sorry, just never seen anything like this before.

    Very, very nice cook and use of a method not used or appreciated enough.
    The fish looks done to perfection.

    One of the best things about fishing is the eating!


    This is fishing season for me right now, work like a dog all week, fish on Saturday, recover on Sunday, rinse and repeat.
    Been slaying the Spanish/Kings, whupping up on some Blues, pounding some Pompano and savaging the Speckled trout.
    I wish we had y'alls BIG Bluefish, fantastic fishery y'all have with them and other fish, e.g. Stripers.
    Our Blues don't get nearly so big, but they do eat better.

    Saturday before last

    A nice Big Ugly, catch-n-released
