Parrot fish actually tastes pretty good. One one of my recent trips, we got the chance to taste a meal that had parrot fish as the fish of the day. It was delicious. mmmm i can still taste the coconut flavor.
Trigger fish is ALSO a fantastic Japanese delicasi, Its called KAWAHAGI, and they dry it and cut it into strips and serve it with a spice sauce.. really really good but hard to find, AND i have no clue which kind of Trigger they use.
This is a cruel thread. Ever since I moved out of Florida I haven't been able to find good fish. I loved catching grouper, snapper, sailor's choice (a little bony but very tasty), and blues. You people are SOOOOOOOO cruel. My mouth is watering with no way to fix it.
I also liked catching fresh steamer clams. Put them in the fridge in a shallow container with a little cornmeal to flush em out. Next day pop em on the grill and EAT!
Of course this is all pre-pollution days. I hear (Family still lives in Melbourne) that all our favorite spots are now too polluted to eat the fish.
Tang... Angel... whatever I've killed most recently.
You have to pull them out before the hermit crabs get to them though, they always go after the most tender parts first. And if it's tang, be sure to remove the scalpel bone, it can make your gums bleed.
Seriously... I don't eat any seafood. I like to joke to people saying "Even though I don't eat seafood, I've probably spent more on it by now then you will in your entire life."
