Re: Carp Deboning:How To

I saw something on Food Network where they made a bunch of vertical cuts and fried the fish. It apparently caused the bones to just fall out or something. The people in the restaurant were raving about it. I guess it's not the trash fish I was always led to believe. Huh

I guess if you think about it, Carp and Catfish eat the same stuff, (dead bodies, dirty diapers, and popcorn from tourists, and Catfish aint half bad.

I've never seen a carp eat a live fish before, but I have seen a catfish eat one. Mmm... Dirty Diapers...

Re: Carp Deboning:How To

Carp have a lateral line and spinal column that run very high up on their bodies, and everything below that is gut cavity. They also have pretty large kidneys relative to the filet size. Beyond the obvious implication that carp have proportionally very little meat for their size, there's also the issue that you stand a good chance of getting bile, kidney juice, blood, and other internal fluids on the meat unless you get a carefully-placed shot on a large fish. For example, the Europeans hit them in the heads (live) with mallets before carefully fileting them.

I have no doubt that properly prepared the meat is quite palatable, but all things considered, I don't consider this (or the other recipe thread) to be a convincing argument (moral, culinary, or otherwise) against the practice of committing carp massacres and then sinking the victims to the bottom of the lake. If this were in Europe, where they are native and don't seem to be as destructive as they are here in the US and also over in Australia, then I'd be all over it. But as the current situation stands, there should be a bounty on their heads, and there's nothing wrong with using them for stealth and target practice.

OK, I'm bringing a fillet knife next time. Thanks for the video site, the 'ghost' carp was cool.
