Blue Marlin, does it taste like any other fish? [Moved from Home Cooking board]
They had Blue Marlin at the store For $10/lb and the guy behind the counter couldn't tell me if it tastes like anything else or not. I bought some catfish for dinner and didn't really need the blue marling too though now I'm very curious. Has anyone out there had it before?
Its pretty damn amazing. I've only had it at this Mariscos Truck and Restaurant in San Diego. Its smoked and a speciality of Baja California Sur and Sinaloa. Best can be described as fish carnitas. Delicious!
I have had blue marlin and white marlin that had been smoked. Has a good taste, but it did not taste like tuna to me. I would recommend trying it if you can find good smoked marlin.
Marlin Poke, not sure what to compare it with, but it was oh so good. Whenever I go to Hawaii, I make sure to have some.
