I've heard they're decent eating, how do you clean them and how do you cook them?
Cleaning
  • Make an incision around the head
  • Use pliers to peel off the skin.
  • Fillet
They do not have a lot of meat on them. They are mostly head and belly. You get back straps and tail meat off of them.

Cooking

Poor Man's Lobster
  • Cube chunks into 1" pieces
  • Boil in Salt/Sugar water
  • Fork out and Dip in Butter
Bacon Appetizers
  • Cube chunks into 1" pieces
  • Wrap in bacon and secure with tooth pick
  • Bake at 300 for 10-15 minutes
Burbot Wraps / Fish sandwiches
  • Cook fillets in oil
  • Flake fish and add to bowl
  • Add Dill Relish and Mayo to bowl
  • Make Sandwiches or Wraps
Good old fashioned fry
  • Dip Fillets in egg and smashed ritz cracker
  • Fry in Oil
Baked Burbot
  • Marinate in Jack Daniels Bag Marinade for 2 days
  • Bake in Oven at 300 for 10-15 minutes
I haven't found a way to cook them, that tastes bad. They are a freshwater cod and I imagine any cod recipe would be a good representation of the fish.

I hate to admit this but the last time I went fishing was in July… I was on the back of my father in-laws yacht in Catalina, we go out there pretty regularly, if we time it right, we’ll be there when yellowfin are running but you gotta go out by Church Rock. When we’re hooked to the mooring in Avalon, all we catch are kelp bass, white seabass and sheepshead, so many in fact it gets a little annoying.. almost as soon as you drop a line in your bait is either stripped or you got a fish on.

that said, last trip we had a MONSTER giant black seabass (300-400 pounds) right below the boat and some leopard sharks.

as an aside, my mother in-law bought me that hat from Buoys & Gulls on the island as a surprise, she got it when I took the boys out on the inflatable, don’t hate. 😂

Another little “minnow” from the Ogden River parts that run through the town. Looks like a healthy rainbow to me. Did a lot of the bigger fish die off or do I have find some deeper pools of water?
