March 11 Dinner Tonight (Day 166)

One of our purchases from the fresh fish market in Greymouth was elephant fish.

Two good fillets!

Never heard of it before, but the counter person at the fish shop gave us pointers on cooking it, suggesting butter is the best oil and a light coating of spiced flour. So we cooked it up on a sheet of foil on the grill and voila!

Tasty, not fishy at all, with a side of rice-vege pilaf.

Curious about what elephant fish is I googled it; Closely related to sharks.

Weird looking, but delicious! Some references say it’s also found around Australia too.
