If you want to get rid of invasive species, put a bounty on them.
I agree with aorod.But I am also surprised. Carp is regarded highly in Europe and Asia. If I had a boat, I'd start catching and exporting....
Asian carp?!?!Tastes like crap regardless of how one tries to dress it up with herbs and spices...
Juandos-I caught some Asian carp out of the LA River, as did many of my neighbors. In fish stew, not bad. The problem is the bones.Yes, it helps to have a Thai wife....
"In fish stew, not bad. The problem is the bones"...Well pseudo benny you're a better man than me if you can stomach that stuff...I've tried three different times (I really like fish alot!) three different ways and just a couple of tastes was more than enough for me...
Jaundos-I don't know what kind of carp you had, but outfits are showing up to catch the carp and send them back to the Far East for eating. Carp is just sort of mild, bland. It is the sauces that impart taste. I confess it is no salmon or tuna....It is the effing bones that ruin it for me. If you make a fish stew, and fish out the bones (haha, get it, fish out the bones) it is fine, although you still have to be careful not to eat the bones. The stew flavors soak into the fish.I am surprised people are not catching the carp and turning them into fertilizer, or eating them. I have seen TV shows where the carp are literally jumping into boats. Big carps, after current-conducting wires were put into the water. I buried a bunch of LA River carp in my vegetable garden. Well, I hope you have lots of salmon, tuna, trout in your future Jaundos, but remember, the carp are free!
Well pseudo benny, it was Asian carp I tried and unlike domestic carp it has a truly rank smell which makes eating it a real toughie for me...
I like the fertilizer idea.What is it with these asians anyway? A few years ago it was asian ladybugs, then asian stinkbugs, now asian carp.Why can't these asians keep their pests at home? Do they have to export EVERYTHING?
For once I agree with juandos. The stuff is inedible.
I can't believe nobody has used 'Carp a Diem' on any of their posts.Sounds like a good way to reduce our trade gap if they love 'em in China...we should trade 50 pounds of carp for every piece of crap they send us.
Juandos-See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-KYLapkxjsIs this the same kind of carp? This is what we have in L.A. Maybe we eat them when they are still young--usually only a few pounds, not the 50-lb monsters....anyway, here in the sewer water, the fish taste okay...
