Welcome to Fisherman's Catch Tuesday
When you have such an incredibly fresh ingredient to work with it's best to just let it shine. I was fortunate enough to have a fisherman buddy of mine share part of his Grey Trigger Fish catch with me. This fish is found in many parts of the world. In Florida, it is fished in 60 to 120 ft deep waters in the Atlantic.
Butchering this fish is tricky and the yield is not fabulous, but the taste surely is. The flesh has a meaty mouthfeel and cooks up great.
Commercially Trigger fish or (Balistes Fraenatus) is wild-caught in India. I have read studies that report that their fishing practices are sustainable. The Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch has yet to include trigger fish in it's guide, thus more research must be done. Additionally, not all species of trigger fish are edible, so please do your research before consuming.
I paired the fish with a salad of kalamata oilves, roasted pimenton, and pickled swiss chard stems tossed in a honey mustard vinaigrette. Garnished with toasted coriander seeds and sunflower sprouts.
