Barracuda & breadfruit recipe In reply to
Serves 4


INGREDIENTS:


1 large foil roasting bag

1 fresh whole small barracuda fish (if frozen, defrost thoroughly in fridge before using - ensure there are no ice crystals in the inner cavity)

2 cups breadfruit, peeled, cored and diced

1 cup salted butter, softened

1 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped

1 shallot, finely chopped

2 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper

parsley sprigs to garnish


METHOD:


Preheat oven to 375 F (175 C). Grease inside of roasting bag and put it on a heatproof cookie sheet.


Using a food processor, blend butter, lemon juice, parsley, shallot and black pepper for about 3 minutes using the pulse button. Do not over do. The butter should be speckled with the herbs.


Spoon the butter onto a plate and allow to set. Cut butter into 1/4 inch chunks. Set aside.


Wash barracuda with water. Place fish inside the roasting bag and top with the breadfruit and chunks of butter. Carefully roll up the bag opening in the direction of the top of the bag to keep in the heat, prevent the juices from leaking and to ensure a good blending of flavors.


Bake in the oven for 45 minutes, or, if using a barbecue, follow the barbecue's manual directions for foil baking fish according to weight. Serve hot garnished with parsley sprigs, accompanied by a salad.

Baked Barracuda In reply to
Servings/Makes: 4 portions



Ingredients:
1.2 kg of barracuda
400 g cucumber
1 dl Extra virgin olive oil by San Giuliano oil mills
2 tbsp dry white wine
½ bunch of parsley
2 cloves of garlic
red peppers
lemons





Directions:
Once you have scaled, gutted washed and thoroughly dried the fish, rub into it salt, garlic, parsley and chopped red peppers. Put in the stomach a few bulbs of dried wild fennel, surround it with the onions, pour over some extra virgin olive oil and bake for 25 minutes on a medium heat. When the fish has reached cooking temperature, take it out and pour over the dry white wine. It will be cooked when the dorsal fin is easily removable. Cut into thin slices and leave to marinate for about 15 minutes in lemon juice, cucumber, white wine, salt and red peppers; take the cucumber from the marinade and place it on the service plate, place it carefully above the just cooked fish and quickly take it to the table. Serve on warm plates with extra virgin olive oil as required.

Grilled Cuda In reply to
Ingredients
3 kg barracuda , head and tail removed
salt to taste
10 ml fish spice
6 cloves garlic, crushed
200 g butter
7 ml dried origanum
1 large lemon, juice
2 lemons, sliced into wedges
MARINADE
250 ml sunflower oil
125 ml olive oil
15 ml peri-peri oil
375 ml dry white wine
1 large lemon, juice
3 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 bunch chives, chopped
freshly ground black pepper



Method:
Wash the fish well and pat dry. Place it in an oven dish and make deep slashes in the flesh, about 5 cm apart. Rub in the salt and fish spice. Mix the garlic, butter and origanum, and rub into the slashes. Spread the remaining butter mixture on top and along the sides of the fish. Sprinkle the lemon juice over the fish. To make the marinade blend the oil, olive oil, peri-peri oil, white wine and lemon juice, and pour over the fish. Place the rosemary sprigs and chives alongside the fish. Season the fish with a little freshly ground black pepper and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for about 24 hours. Cook the fish in a covered gas or Weber braai or in the oven at 150 ºC for about 1 1/2-2 hours. (The secret is to allow the fish to cook slowly as it's fairly thick. Reduce the cooking time for a thinner fish.) The fish is cooked when the flesh flakes easily with a fork. Place the cooked fish on a serving platter, pour over the remaining marinade and serve with plenty of lemon wedges and savoury rice (see recipe), Italian bread and mango salad.

California Barracuda Burgers with Spicy Tomato Relish In reply to
by davetclown

Ingredients
  • 1 lb. California Barracuda steaks
  • olive oil
  • 4 sourdough sandwich buns
  • spicy tomato relish
Directions Lightly brush buns and California barracuda steaks with olive oil. Warm or toast buns on the grill then set aside to keep warm. Grill California barracuda steaks to desired doneness (10 minutes total per inch of thickness). Place on a plate and remove skin and bones. Pile grilled barracuda on one side of bun and top with spicy tomato relish.

Serving Hint: Before heating, make an indentation in the bottom half of each bun by removing some of the bread. This will help keep the grilled seafood from falling out during serving and eating.

Spicy Tomato Relish
1/2 cup sweet red pepper, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 jalapeno chiles, minced
1 cup tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 lemon, juiced
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and cook uncovered until thick, about 20 minutes. Serve warm. Makes approx. 2 1/3 cups.

Hi
How close in taste is barracuda and pike?
I have never tried barracuda but find it difficult to find/buy pike where I live (living in the uk.. but I am swedish )
Someone told me that barracuda is pike but without the small bones.
We have always cooked the pike we catch in the oven with milky cream and horseradish.... LOVELY.

Barracuda is very different from Pike. Barracuda does not have the Y bones that Pike and other fish will have but it does have distinct gamey taste to it due to the bloodline in the fish.

You can smoke Barracuda and confuse it with the taste of Tuna. Therefore it does make good Tuna quality sandwiches. It is not always good fish for frying becuase of the natural oils. Frying is a delcate method and requires careful attention. Baked, broiled or BBQ is my method of choice when I don't feel like smoking them.Cool
