Playing with my food but not like Adam Bolonsky

Adam catches a bluefish and needs to make sure it is really really dead before he lays it between his legs in a kayak.

Waht better way than to rip the heart out with the gills and the blue is tastier after bleeding out.

What better way than to rip the heart out with the gills and the blue is tastier after bleeding out.

If I catch a big blue I need to scale and leave the skin on for the perfect Marcella Hazan “Bluefish with Crispy Potato” click for recipe.”  I was planning on making a post of gifts hanging on our kitchen wall from Fred Bodin’s Shop. But then I had a blue that I bled out when I caught it then scaled before filleting. But wait I needed a picture.

The small ceramic striper on the wall as well as an antique map of my neighborhood when our house was the only one both came from Fred's shop

Still bleeding out but I think I can make a new Zombie avatar before I fillet the fish.

Reading Marcella’s recipe she lists other fish you could use but I have tried them all and a fresh bluefish is the only way to make this dish. Half a fillet will rest on the crispy potatoes while remainder of the fish marinates overnight to become smoked bluefish tomorrow. Ryan & Wood wood chunks from the distillery whiskey casks for the smoke. Perfection. Then smoked bluefish paté sealed with a dog kiss from Stella makes Joey’s favorite snack on a Ritz cracker.
