I have always heard that they are tasty so I figured I would try them out. I pulled two large fillets off of a medium size fish and froze them for later. I then defrosted the meat with water and some vinegar and when soft I cut the fillets into chunks. I made it real simple olive oil, salt, oregano and a little lemon. Had some tomato and cucumber salad and voila! Tasted really good. Will have to try it again sometime.Posted Image

Looks good. But I really wanted to see a picture of the fish. Now I am going to have to do a search to see what one looks like. Thanks for continuing my education. Never even heard of one of those before.LOL I went and searched. I have caught one of those before in the bay. I catch stuff all most every time I go there that I do not know what it is called. I guess it is all about where you grow up and where you fish the most. Learn something new every day. LOL I turn a lot of fish loose because I do not know what they are down there.

They're are great eating. Whenever I happen by a good sized one spearfishing, I'll take it home for dinner. We caught a huge one years ago off a research boat. The captain BBQ'd the shark and a large white sea bass on the grill. At the end of dinner half of the white sea bass was still sitting there and the guitar fish was gone.

Rhinobatus productus...the shovel nose guitar fish.Ed, I'd put it on a plate and hand it to you and you'd be asking for seconds after you tasted it.
