Not this fish. Not fishy in that rotting old fish fishy smell sort of way. This bad boy's straight off the boat.
I joined a local Community Supported Fish program this summer with BV and the roommates. For $45 a person, we're getting more fish than we can fit in our bellies for 12 weeks.
Those fillets don't look that great because I hadn't filleted a fish in years, I hacked it up a bit, and the photo makes it look grayish, but trust me - it was as fresh as fresh gets and delicious. In addition to these 2 big fillets, I was left with the head and bones:
I used the head and bones to make a big pot of fish stock, which I then used to make New England Fish Chowdah.
A little white wine to cook the fish, a little for the stock, and a little for the cook. I love the CSF.
