I've never had Asian carp, but near where I grew up, you could buy "scored carp" in restaurants. They would score the fish to allow the hot oil to cook and soften the Y bones. It was very good fish.

I bet 'copi' isn't a sushi/sashimi quality fish, but adequate when cooked properly. Looks like mixed reviews with those that actually have eaten it putting it in the 'not too bad' category. I bet it'll go toe to toe (gill to gill?) with tilapia. I sure don't mind the rebranding; especially considering it may put a dent in an invasive specie population.

I would try it. From what I've read these carp are not bottom feeders and supposedly taste good.

I love carp especially some good old fashioned smoked carp. The only problem is, last year I accidentally swallowed a y bone while I was stuffing my face and it literally penetrated the tissue in my throat on both sides and hung there. What a nightmare.

Had to shove a pair of pliers down my throat to get it out, gagging and sputtering mucous and blood the whole time. It was a nightmare.

Aren’t the Asian carp filter feeders? They eat pankton and other micro organisms.

It doesn’t matter what they eat. They are made of fish meat, just like all other fish, and people will come up with all sorts of goofy reasons to not eat something. All the while, they’ll inhale processed foods, sugars, and seed oils as though that’s perfectly acceptable.


cheers Thank ya'll for your participation.

Yep, for millennia, people have defined their tribe by what they don't eat.

I really like the back strap of a gar. After you slice the bones out of the middle, slice it up into rings like scallops and fry it up it will knock your socks off.

Just like swai or whatever it is being sold as freshwater catfish that the masses buy now days!
Buffalo isn’t a bad tasting fish, but it has so many bones it’s not worth the hassle. I imagine the same for other similar species. If they have sweat shops to pull the bones, and sell the meat cheap, I’m sure they will make it!

Supposedly Asian carp was brought here by the settlers as a food fish. The are not native to america. I have heard of times say pressure cooked and canned,they were good. Never tried it (to my knowledge )!

TILAPIA

just to be clear on this fish. 99% sold in fish markets and restaurants are farm raised in huge offshore nets. They are fed protein pellets. Their POOP falls through the net, not eaten buy themselves. Great, mild fish, good for about anything

Me? I stick to Atlantic Salmon about 3 times a week.

carp, gar, buffalo. WAY too much trouble making them edible.

You can buy all you want at 99 Ranch Market, Preston Rd. Frisco, next to the Academy and Hacienda Ranch Restaurant (which has FINALLY, re-opened)
They sell great pork belly, skin on or off.
Enjoy
