What you want is a "Cook book" by James Beard. He was probably the most famous (well deserved) authority on cooking "ALL" seafood that has ever lived! Pretty strong statement, right, well it was the great chefs around the world that agreed on this!!
He usually gave a description of each item to go along with his recipes. There is nothing else (book) that comes remotely close!
sounds interesting..... until recently, i didn't know you could eat blowfish. Apparently they are pretty good. I started reading old posts about it, and came across some where folks were eating stargazers! They say the tail is good to eat. If I catch one, he's toast!
I have a friend thats really into fishing and held the state record king mac caught on the sandbridge pier. anyway he fishes for stargazers at rudee inlet, he catches them with gloved hands next to the rocks, he claims they are just like monkfish and are occasionally sold as monkfish. I had always thrown them back, but I know he is worth his salt and plan on trying them. sounds wierd going fishing without poles but I witnessed him catch four big ones while I unsecusefully flounder fished next to him
