Usually when we cook spoonbill, it's cut up in chunks, seasoned and dipped in some Zatarans Crispy Southern Fish Fry. But, I tried cooking in on the grill a while back and now that's the only way we'll eat it.

I'll take the big strips of meat, season it with some Old Bay and then coat it with a mixture of olive oil, real salted butter, garlic powder and salt & pepper while it's on the Grill. Cook it for about 10min and serve it hot! I like it just a little crispy on the outside.

My son can eat a one pound bag of fish by himself.

Looks like I'll be out for some more bills this winter on Grand!

Glad you found a way to grill it. I didn't have good luck. I'm still a catch and release guy.

It's been years since I've touched spoonbill flesh, but if I remember right, it's pretty similar in texture to swordfish. Swordfish is an excellent fish to grill, so I'm not surprised that spoonie grills up well too.

If you have some recipes for Swordfish, try it with Spoonbill. If I have time, I'll try to post a few myself.

One of my old buds from way back in the stone age told me of a way he does spoonbill and catfish both. He pounds fillets out with a meat hammer, runs em through some ranch dressing and coats em with those crushed fried onion rings like the ones folks toss on green bean casseroles.

Oven or grill either one, says it's great...me, ain't tried it yet.
