Good job Rami!!!!!!!!!
If I had fresh cod in front of me right now, I would make fish & chips. But that's just me.
Don't drink out of ornamental ponds in Tiergarten. You will get sick.
Very nice Rami! I have a very similar fish ready to fillet first thing tomorrow.
Blue eye is very versatile, the head is great for soups, it splits very easily. The flesh is quite firm with nice large flakes. I like to salt it for around 20minutes, Brush off & gently steam.
It also holds up well in things like pies & curries.
Also it's called blue eye Trevalla these days, not cod anymore.

Where is your deba, Rami? Very nice catch.
Jon has a high dollar one, and there is a Sukenari Ginsanko one on JCK. I'm pretty sure Sakai Takayuki makes a ginsanko deba as well, but someone would have to special order it for you.
I'm from Cape Cod and have I've pulled so many cod out of the water but have never seen that species. I'm now a hypocrite fisherman cause my heart breaks just a little when I see such a beautiful animal pulled from the sea.
I'm sure my thoughts would be quire ephemeral after Rami served it. Seriously, nice catch. Tell us how you caught it? Giging off the bottom? What did it weigh looks around 25-28LBS?
Regarding cooking: My all time favorite way to cook whole fish is covering it with a layer of egg whites fortified with salt, gullet stuffed with herbs and lemon. Thats a pretty big cod, I cook it three ways:
1.) Filet one side. Fish and Chips and/or pan seared and/or poached.
2.) Salt Cake bake
3.) Fish soup using the bones and random scraps saved after roasting.
Please do eat the eyes too. it would be a shame to waste those peepers. Just remove the white iris and sclera jacket and spoon out the virtuous humor. Its akin to bone marrow.
One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.
Rami that's not a fish... This is a fish

Will keep the recipes In mind.
