I just came back from a fishing trip with a large king and some red snapper and need a recipe.
Who cares I'll post where I want

    King Mackerel can be a little fishy for some peoples taste. The best way to get rid of the strong taste is to bleed it, whem you catch it, do not know if you did that or not.

    I like it cut into 1" steaks and fried.
    Smoked filets
    Escabeche (pickled, great if you like sardines)

    Good luck

    make dip out of it.. it is wonderful.... brine the king for 2-3 hrs. smoke on grill.... mix smoked king fish, with horseradish, pickles, onions, mustard and whatever spices you want.. mix together... the mix the key item which is lime juice..... it is amazing... mix up and put on club crackers...and enjoy...... fried king is great too.... main think is not to overcook it.. put in grease and once it floats to top, take out. most people do not like king because they overcook it..
  • Sicilian Style

    1 cup flour, all-purpose
    10 pounds king mackerel, fillets
    4 large onions, chopped
    1 box raisin
    3 pounds green olives, smashed
    2 bottles capers
    2 cans tomato paste
    16 ounces wine vinegar
    2 cups olive oil

    Flour and fry the fish fillets in olive oil until browned and set aside.

    saute the onion in the same oil until golden and add the other ingredients to heat thoroughly. Add the fish pieces and cook covered on low heat for approximately 1/2 hour.

    Remove from the heat and cool.

    Marinate for 2 days in a cool place before eating.

    Best King Mackerel advice I can give you is: Eat the Snapper.
