    I'm going for a spin tommorrow arvo and I want to bring home a feed or two. Normally we just scale the fish, rip out the insides and clean the Redfin and put it on the fry pan. So I just wanted to try another recipe that taste great for Redfin!

    redfin is a tasty fish, pretty much good on it's own with a bit of lemon .. but you might try in foil with adding tomato, some butter, onion, garlic, maybe some cracked pepper ... you could look into smoking it too.

    You can always experiment with some spices, but don't go too overboard ;) it takes over from the taste, but once making up a mix, put some butter and lemon juice on the fillets or whole fish, and put some in some four in a plastic freezer bag with the spices and fillet, shake, and pan fry.

    experiment really, you'll find a good mix.

    I like to fillet my fish and either Batter it or crumb it, ok you may lose a bit but atleast your not mucking around with bones,besides you can always freeze the carcass & use it in your shrimp bait for the next outing, or simply bury it in the garden for compost......cheer's Greg.........

    Hi Lachlan, here's one for you, first fillet your fish,1cup of plain flour,half a cup of self raising flour, a pinch of black pepper,and fair sprinkle of Chicken salt,finally a can or 2 of your preferred beer. Method,wisk or stir in beer till you get all the lumps out & have a good virscosity, finally let you batter stand for atleast20-40 min's. After this just heat up a pan with oil,dip your fillets in and Bingo was his name it,s that easy,Bon-appertite...Cheer's Greg............

    B.Frost,

    Redfin are one of the easiest fish to fillet, when you've done a few they become pretty easy and don't take long.
    Once filleted and cooked in beer batter they are very very hard to beat!
    Still in my top 3 fish to eat.

    Beer batter is very nice.

    I worked with an old fella a couple of years ago.He said if i wanted to scale redfin i needed to do one thing to make it easy.Stand on the tail and pull on the head until i heard a crack.He reckons that makes them easy to scale???Has anyone else heard of this method??

    remove cover, pour 1 tbsp soya sauce , slice chilli , slice ginger and pinch of sugar (if you like sesame oil, you can add a bit)
