I have to agree with dugongboy

Tomato Rockod is number 1

But then for the rest it depends who the chef is and depends on what you making.

Grilled,Fried,Breyani (Rockcod is number1),Curry

Where have you okes been???

The best tasting fish is of course Natal snoek!!!
After that couda with a 50/50 sauce "oppie kole" then Garanx Ignobilis, Garrick, Kabeljou, brusher, pompano, grunter, I wouldn't put Dorado as one of my favourites but its not bad eating.
try some shark meat it is realy tasty, only if you prepare it properly.

I've eaten Dorado at resturants.  Most of them over cook the fish.

I'm sure a fresh Dor done well wud b Brill.

The abolute tastiest fish iv eaten is this one (Pic, Roman? or Englishman?)

I caught it on 6 Jul 08 and put it on ice immediately. 

Prepared as Fish Curry. 

Not too spicy, and not over cooked.

Fish was tastier than Crayfish.

Absolutely superb!!!

I enjoy most fish, but if I had to recall one specific meal that stood out above all others, it would have to be a day in Mozambique.

Another member here at Sealine, Pomerob, and I were camping just north of Millibangalala on the beach.  Pomerob caught a really nice tuna that day, and we had some leftover Wahoo.  Pomerob put his culinary skills to work (owner of The Deck in Edenvale), and came up with a really first class spread of sushi and sashimi.  The combination of peppers, avocado, tuna and Wahoo was just fantastic.

If there is one MAJOR tip I can offer here, and I’m probably the last person on this planet to work this out, it’s Kikkoman, genuine Japanese soy sauce.  If you have ever had sushi/sashimi and it didn’t taste quite right, you probably were not using Kikkoman!!!

Fishton...that looks like a great meal.

I don't know if you blokes get any of the tuskfish over there but my favorite fish is the Baldie...Baldchin Groper.....Choerodon rubescens. Wrasse family of fish, here the tuskfish are known generically as bluebone.

These things pull hard and fight dirty. Lovely white flesh that is firm and juicy.

 
Got this pink one a couple of years back they are normally green in my area.



Conditions where terrible that day:::S

My list

1. Baldie http://www.westernangler.com.au/default.asp?action=article&ID=91  

2. Dhuie http://www.westernangler.com.au/default.asp?action=article&ID=98

3. Spanglie http://www.westernangler.com.au/default.asp?action=article&ID=161

4. Herring http://www.westernangler.com.au/default.asp?action=article&ID=184

5. Spaniard http://www.westernangler.com.au/default.asp?action=article&ID=148 dugongboy will recognise the picture

Here's the whole list from Wangler http://www.westernangler.com.au/default.asp?action=article&ID=90

cheers

Guy's whatever you do do not eat any Butterfish unless its dry cooked without any oil. All the excess oil in the fish is the one that will give you the runns. Rather eat it from a reputable restaurant or hotel. Best fish i ever eaten must have been Monkfish steamed in Lemongrass and soy. For all the sachimi and sushi fans, Kikoman Dark soy is the best on the market and there is no substitute for that. Here is a quick one for everybody. Farmed Abelone you can by again. This is only for Hotels, Restaurants, Lodges etc. Unfortunately the establishment have to apply for a license to sell the abelone to the public. Its not yet available to the general public but it will be soon. Also forgot to mention the abelone farm itself has to apply with certain criteria to farm the abelone. This farm is very strictly monitored by officials.

@ Tony Harding, terrible conditions!!! I thought you'd stocked your pool! LOL

As for the fish you are talking about, nope, never seen one here or Moz. Maybe someone else on the site has?? Looks like a great fish though, and tasty by the sounds of it. Nice one!
