Ling Cod Recipes?

Discussion in 'Saltwater' started by yellowlab, May 16, 2010.

  1. We went out to MA1234567890 for some Ling action on the fly. Anyone know of any good recipes?????? Largest fish of the day was a 52" Leviathan weighing close to 15 lbs, not pictured... Yes, that is a rockfish in the gullet of that bad boy Ling.

    well for not wanting to give up details you did give away alot of information. best ling recipe i know of is to beat an egg or 2 depending on how much you plan to cook, put a little bit of salt in the egg, dip the fish chunk in the egg(2 inch by 4-6 inchs) and then put it in panko bread crumbs. cook the fish in a pan with some hot oil. tastyyyyy
     
  5. Thanks, will have to try that out. Its coming out too tough, prob. overcooking it. I am going to try poaching it and making a Chinese ginger, garlic and green onion fish sauce to sear it with.

    FYI: Setting the record straight, that big one was mine! Paul tied the fly and took me out but it was my skills (haha) that brought in that big one! hahaha.....it was an awesome day and all thanks to Paulie!
     
  8. All your skillz are due to my sweet guiding instruction. The student learned from the teacher, how to cast, how to tie a knot, how to hookset and land a fish. Damn, I was even netting the fish and un-hooking them for you and driving the boat! If I had more time on the water, I would've landed that big Mama fish. I'll remember your skillz the next Im out rippin' em and you're snoring away in your comfy bed. I especially liked that look on your face when I made my first cast and landed the first Ling, classic.

    If ling cod is handled on the deck correctly it doesnt much matter how it's cooked, it's awesome! In fact with both lings and Halibut I like to get my first taste on the water sushi style yummy! Many times I have heard of people cutting their line to release them as they did not want to touch them.

    We cube the fish, than marinate in olive oil with salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, garlic, and oregano. A few hours works best. Then cut up colored peppers (light oil/salt coating also) and shish kebab the lot. A few brats mixed in are good also. About four minutes on a side with a well oiled and very hot grill is all it takes, and it won’t overcook. A lighter Pinot or NZ Sauvignon Blanc to accompany.
