    Carps are known to be pests and not common for the table. However I have eaten carp many times and it is tasty and fleshy. Many people catch a big fat carp and kill it. It is easy to scale and clean (chop off the bloody head). Just cut the fish into chunky slices and place into a fry pan with oil. Make sure it becomes golden/brownish and it is hard and crispy on the outside. Simply squeeze some lemon and enjoy. The tastiest part I enjoy is long strips of fat this fish has.

    I tried carp once and only once and the best thing for them is to be turned into fertilizer

    Very true.If you plant them deep under your garden whole then plant veggies on top they go nuts.The gas from the carp comes up through the ground into the roots and the veggies will reward you.

    hahaha.

    I tried eating carp once , a nice healthy river carp purged in fresh water for a few days filleted and marinated overnight cooked the next day and it still tasted like arse.Way to much effort to go to when there are so many more tasty fish out there.Or better stil a big juicy steak or a few lamb chops , yum.

    Easy Deep Fried Carp Fillets Recipe


    Serves/Makes: 6 Ingredients:
    • 2 pound fresh carp fillets
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 cup biscuit mix or pancake mix
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • Oil (for deep frying)
    • Lemon wedges
    How to cook Easy Deep Fried Carp Fillets:
    • Remove the skin of the carp and take out all the brownish-redish-colored part of the meat, the "mud vein" discard.
    • Chunk up the rest of the carp fillets. Place carp fillet pieces in a shallow dish. Pour the milk over them and let it stand for half an hour, turning the fillets over once during that time. Stir the salt into the biscuit mix.
    • Take carp fillets out of the milk and pat them into the biscuit mix, covering both sides.
    • Fry carp fillets in deep fryer or in medium hot oil in fry-pan for 5 - 10 minutes until cooked through and browned on both sides. Use tongs or slotted spoon to turn them.
    • Drain on paper towels. Serve with lemon wedges.
