This truly is a good recipe for cooking Bluefish on the stove top. I searched the Internet for the best ways to cook this species of fish. I found a great Youtube video that seemed very convincing while offering a way to cook Bluefish so that it didn’t taste real fishy.
I really wanted to smoke some up and make fish dip, but the problem is I don’t have a smoker. I considered grilling some up and making the dip, but then I though it would be best to keep things inexpensive and easy.
Honestly though, I was a bit skeptical as I first started gathering all of the ingredients needed for the recipe I chose to use. It wasn’t until I mixed the tomato with green chilies with the spices that I started to really believe that this might be the very best way to cook Bluefish in order to get rid of strong fish flavor.
Here’s the video I found on the Thundermist Lures Youtube channel: https://youtu.be/NhltppaVycU
I modified the original recipe just a little. Here are the ingredients I used to cook two fillets of Bluefish
1. 10 oz. can of diced tomatoes and green chilies
2. Three table spoons of olive oil
3. Half of a red onion finely chopped
4. Italian mix spices that contained oregano
5. Two cloves of garlic finely chopped
6. Add your favorite spices. I used Badia Complete Sazon Seasoning
Here are the steps taken for cooking this amazing Bluefish dish:
A. Heat the olive oil
B. Add in chopped garlic and onion and gently cook for about three to five minutes
C. Add the entire can of diced tomatoes and green chilies
D. Add in desired spices
E. Let this mixture simmer for about ten to fifteen minutes and then add the Bluefish and cook for another ten to fifteen.
I chose to serve this mixture over a bed of brown rice as I thought it would taste the best that way. Honestly, this is the very best recipe I’ve every found for cooking bluefish. The claims of it losing all of it’s fishy flavor were absolutely true. Like I say in the video the meat really takes on the flavor of the Italian spices. I wouldn’t ever hesitate to catch and cook this species of fish ever again.
