Re: Eating Yellow Jack..... Well I'll be darned

YJ are quite good, try them as carpacio- paper thin cut, with some lime, a few capers & a
I think Red grouper are also good not as good as a Black but very close.

Re: Eating Yellow Jack..... Well I'll be darned

YJ is awesome, I like to slice into thin 1/8" slices and fry in olive oil really quick, then splash soy sauce over it. Not really a big sushi fan, whenever there is some left over I cook the fish.

I find reds to be one of my favorites, more firm than blacks and gags. I can't eat black grouper unless it is batter fried.

wow...didn't know that.
Freshwater? That's probably the worst thing you could do to the quality of the meat.

Re: Eating Yellow Jack..... Well I'll be darned

Re: Eating Yellow Jack..... Well I'll be darned

I am not sure what you guys are calling yellow jacks. Are those what wvandeman has in his picture? Do they have a different name. I fish out of st.augustine florida and have never heard that name up here.

and talking about the grouper, my favorite by far is the goliath. MMMMM! tastes kinda like bald eagle wings or manatee flippers

The ones Wvandeman has in his pics are yellow jacks. The best way to not mix it up is to use the scientific name...it is...Carangoides bartholomaei
