My local fishmonger gave me a bag holding 4 whole Wild Sockeye tails. I guess these are left after they cut the whole fish into steaks.
Any ideas??

    Is there any meat on the bones? I love grilled salmon teriyaki.

    If you really did just get a bag of caudal fins, then you could try making fish stock or dredge the bones in seasoned flour and deep fry. The crispy bones would be delicious.

      I got the entire tail section of the fish. Skin on, bone in, etc. I guess I could make salmon Osso Bucco :)

      season or marinate them however you'd like, and bake or broil (or poach in a seasoned liquid)...then flake apart the meat to use in anything from a salmon salad to quiche to croquettes. the tails don't often have much in the way of bones, but if you do have some leftover you can use them for stock.
