    I was on vacation in Cape Cod one summer and a couple who catch and make bluefish all the time brought some to us to try. They soak it overnight in a combination of 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water mixed, which gets rid of some of the oil and the very strong taste. We then grilled it and kept basting it with a garlic/butter mixture, and it was absolutely delicious, not a real strong flavor, and flaked with a fork. I can’t seem to find real bluefish in the stores around Manchester, NH. I used to have friends who fished and gave me some of their catch.

    A friend in Wellfleet gave me fillets from a small bluefish. I found this recipe in Yankee and tried it since it was simple. The soy was a nice counterpoint to the healthy oils in the fish. The garlic and rosemary gave it a fresh zing. It was super. Very fresh bluefish does not have a strong flavor and this simple treatment enhances it.
