    I also used to fish a lot when younger. Catfish were my favorite. Bass were too much work; you had to chase after them and entice them to bite. Catfish, on the other hand, would come to you if you had the right bait that day—the big ones preferred live bait—and were waiting in the right place. Cats were easy to clean. I kept the fish alive (easy to do with cats) until I cleaned them. Gutting and skinning was way too much work so I just filleted the flesh off the bones, flipped the flesh skin side down, then sliced the flesh off the skin. I used paper towels blot up any blood from the fillets—rinsing them kills flavor—then soaked them overnight in a shallow pan or saucer full of whole milk to kill any wild taste. The next morning, I blotted the fillets dry and either wrapped and froze them or saved them for cooking later that day. I either fried them after dipping them in onion ring batter or breaded them with Shake & Bake chicken coating (the fish coating was horrible) and broiled them in the oven.

    Yep a bit like the trout Granddad used to behead the thing (I think it is rather pointless to cook with the head on any fish and a bit "twee") gut it and soak it in slightly salt water overnight then just pan fry it.

    I like the shark stuff cos it was very tasty, very fluffy flesh (for want of a better term) and it also has no bones as such like all sharks had cartilage so no spiky bones

    Personally I prefer crumbed fish too as battered is so greasy. As kids a cold winter night with fresh cooked huss and chips from the village shop drenched in vinegar and salted was so devine.

    You haven't lived until you are addicted to anchovies. Not the poncy restaurant variety.
    I buy 1kg jars of my addiction ... Spanish anchovies are to die for; and my contribution to supporting Spain in their financial difficulties.

    She-who-must-be-obeyed wont come near me ... reckons I smell like a walrus.

    Cheese. I used to love Camembert and Blue Vein cheese. Good and stinky ! Until I discovered I am allergic to bovine protein. Now I console myself with fresh goats milk and anchovies ... but not at the same time.

    The only way I can eat anchovies is in Caesar Salad dressing. Whoever came up with the bright idea of putting the nasty things on pizzas should be shot.

    By your description of your diet I take it you must single, the dog stays outside where there is fresh air, and the cat is sheltered by one of your neighbors.

    I tried anchovies one time and almost threw up. Had to use Ajax powder to brush my teeth and gargled with extra strength listerine. Then swabbed my nose with peppermint spray.

    Guess that's why we are all different and have likes for different reasons.

    As a kid we used Blue Cheese to put on manifolds of cars for those who were richer and owned a car. When the engine warmed to smell of rotten cheese permiatted the inside of the car.

    I am ashamed but loved every minute of having fun while I was young and stupid.
    Now I am older but couldn't shake stupidity. Must be in my jeans!
