King and spanish Mackeral on the grill

PostThu Jul 24, 2008 5:03 pm

Caught a nice king and a nice spanish a couple of weeks ago and was catious about eating it. Steaked up the spanish and fileted the king as I could not cut through the backbone. Mixed up some butter, garlic and a little lemon juice. Threw them on the grill and basted with the butter mix. Cooked well on both side. The fish was very good, no fishy taste at all, just good light collored meat. Recomend to anyone. The wife and kids enjoyed the fish as well.

If Kings aren't too big and the spanish are decent size they eat pretty good if you eat them FRESH.

I bring a lot of kings to BBQs in lieu of my stock of Mahi, Tuna and Wahoo.

There is a stainless steel serrated knife that cuts right through a King Mackeral for steaking. It is made by Dexter Russell (http://www.tackledirect.com/dexter-russ ... nives.html).

Oneal, Just cooked a Spanish Mackerel on the grill and it was Excellent! Didn't know it could taste that good. Thanks for you easy instructions. I need to get back to the coast and catch some more before the season is gone!

Larger kings I always put in the smoker but for smaller ones, I either blacken them or use the recipe below for grilling:

Ingredients:

1 small or medium sized kingfish
1 cup of your favorite Italian dressing
1 package of bacon
toothpicks

Steak the kingfish - 1" sections are good and then carefully slice out the 4 nice clean round "medallions" of meat from each steak. Put the fish and italian dressing together in a ziploc bag and marinate for an hour or two.
After marinating wrap each medallion with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Grill for a few minutes on each side on a hot and well-oiled grill until the fish is done and the bacon is starting to get crispy.

Enjoy.
