Best recipe for 20lb+ of fish heads?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 19, 2012 at 3:45 AM

I recently acquired a 20lb+ bag of frozen fish heads. My plan had been to open the bag and knock them off the frozen block a few at at time, and experiment with different preparations. However, after some failed late-night hacking I have a new plan, which is to thaw and cook them all at once, then re-freeze the result.

I want to make something good, because I'll be eating it for a while...

I also want something that isn't too involved. It's going to be too big for my crock pot, but I'd like something I can set to simmer for a long time (maybe outside on my camp stove!) without constant attention.

Suggestions?

ewwwwww. I've blended mackerel and sardine heads before but I always mixed them in to some salmon burgers or something. That just looks vile. Then again, this is coming from someone who drank raw liver shakes right after she gave birth.

Why do you have to constantly dish Jimmy?

Remove the gills before you make the stock as they can render the stock bitter. Also fish stock is done in 30 minutes and shouldn't simmer for too long. Reduce stock when you're done and freeze for future use. Make Bouillabaisse. Invite friends. Open a few bottles of white wine.

Fish collar is the tastiest part of the fish! So if the collar is still on, get to eating!

Easy recipe (make sure to dry in fridge or using a blow dryer): http://kitchentigress.blogspot.co.uk/2011/02/salt-grilled-salmon-head-kabuto-yaki.html

After that, any bones you don't eat (as they will be softened) can be used for stock.

After that, get a cat.

Per Jimmy Moore: Fry in coconut oil. Then throw away fish heads and consume coconut oil.
