What to do with 200 fish eyeballs?

Went to the fish monger this weekend and picked up approximately 100 de-eyed fish heads + eyeballs.

I'm thinking spaghetti squash and fish eyeballs?

Fish fat taste bitter when overcooked afaik. Stock that I've made for more than the often recommended period (hour and a half or so a couple of times) tasted unpleasantly bitter...

They're only slightly bitter (I find turmeric to be more bitter,) but they're also savory and meaty. They have an interesting texture that's like stale gummy bears. Closest thing I would compare them to are raw oysters with a less fishy taste.

Sounds like a good natural alternative to hormonal birth control

Obviously... freeze them and use them to cool off your Paleo Koolaid.

Simmer the bejesus out of them in some delicious bone broth soup to add an extra minerals/nutrients until they just dissolve into liquid, then slurp away :)

Are they frozen? I'd probably just eat a few frozen eyeballs straight out of the freezer for a while. Maybe even just swallow them down like they are vitamins.

I heard that fish eyes are very bitter. Is that true?

Make bone broth from fish heads. If the eyeballs are bitter, give them to your cat.
