Hard to argue with that top 5 RR.

I'd put fresh yellowfin tuna (ahi) over bluefin though.

cut into steaks off the fillet and seared on a super hot barbie plate, dipped in soy and consumed with plenty of ice cold hinano's.

I'll throw some on at the party in July.

shouldn't really be eating bluefin or yellowfin. Definitely not Southern Bluefin.
Most sustainable choice is skipjack, though mostly the line caught stuff is alright from a sustainability perspective.
the belly-loin you're thinking of comes from bluefin.

Happy to see flathead in the top 5, clearly you are a man of refined taste.
I'd have fingermark over snapper.
sand whiting is better than king george.

Can't have a top 5 eating fish without Pearl Perch on the list.

Got no centre console anymore, so haven't eaten it in about 10 years ... but shit on me, it's the best fish I've ever tried. I'd put Red Emperor up there ... and for some reason -- and I know I'm in a minority -- but spanish mackerel steaks tickle my panties too. Every one I've ever caught, I bled straight away, into an iced slurry and eat it that night on a bbq with a spicy thai salad like som tum and a cold beer. It's as good as it gets.

Braithy must admit, he's never tried walnuts with fish before, therefore his curiosity levels are moist with desire.

Braithy loves how the forum has suddenly embraced Jesus Christ, our lord and saviour.

More than happy to eat fish sustainably...got any pikchas of skipjack, or fingermark for that matter?

Yep southern bluefin...endangered right? Don't the japs still covet it and break maritime laws aka. whaling and sell for humungo $$$ on the tokyo fish market floor?

And sand whiting is darn tiny innit...meaning hard to cook well...if at all?

And flathead...caught a cracker in pittwater on easter sunday...just a light coating of flour and on the bbq plate with some butter. Can you do flathead sashimi? Used to congratulate myself on it being my favourite way back when it was half the price of everything else. These days it's totally in fashion and top shelf expensive. Beautiful, versatile fish.
guessing you meant me...
Skipjack - most canned fish in Oz is skipjack, Safcol rates the best according to the greenies

Fingermark (was yanking your chain a bit, it's the same as a golden snapper, though I rate it far better than the red)

Yep, Japs and Koreans still fishin the arse out of the bluefin.

Can eat flathead raw, it's very sweet and works well. Bit hard to do flathead sashimi if you get technical about it, the texture isn't right for it though the bits around the wings go alright.

Sand whiting are much smaller, but also much tastier. I don't buy it though, fish is always better fresh but 100x so for whiting.

What, you mean they taste like god's testicles right. I'm with Ron. They're a shit nut. I don't care how healthy they are, they're as nasty as brazil nuts.

Shelled a big jar of walnuts for my brothers to take to mum but they ate them on the drive from Adelaide to Queensland.

I'd forgive the heinous wankiness of putting nuts in a fish stew, though ground up maccas make a beautiful red fish curry............but using spanish mackie fillets is un-fcuking-forgiveable.

Fish stew is invented to use the shitt bits or otherwise crappy little fish that are too hard to fillet properly.

The marseilles'ese use the little red rock cod for the bouillabaise, we have equivalents.

The best fish stew comes from the head and wings of fresh fish. Snapper, barramundi, jewies all work. Blue(threadfin) salmon is off the scale good. Go to the fishmongers to the waste bins and make an offer on the heads and wings. I've got 'em for a song in snapper season when the bins are overflowing.
Use a fresh stock.
Be careful to not over-cook the flesh; it's delicate. The cheek meat and slivers of meat in the pectoral grooves are the sweetest meats on the fish.
Don't use large reef fish unless you want ciguatera.
Add shellfish, mud crabs or whatever if you're flushed and want the deluxe version.

Can't beat spanish mackerel cutlets done two minutes a side on a very hot griddle and served with a salsa verde - same for kingie cutlets.

Reckon ocean jackets are one of the most underrated fish around, and ridiculously cheap. Like them grilled and served with a caper, parsley and butter sauce.

Reckon ocean mullet and slimy mackerel are also underrated.

John Dory would have to rank towards the top of the "table fish" rankings, though mirror dory is almost as good and only a fraction of the price.
