Pan Fried Blow Fish Tails
I know what goes through some peoples minds when they hear blowfish tails "aren't they poisonous". Sure some are but your local fish monger is not going to kill you with the bad ones. In this case for me "The Lobster Place" in Chelsea market had these in and let me know about it so I pick up some and they were great and cheap. These ones come from up in the Hudson Valley and had texture between a stone crab claw and cod. I thought best to keep this recipe simple, they were like snacking on little healthy fish on a stick.

    Having read this I thought it was very enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time to put this piece together. Once again I find myself spending way to much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!

  2. REddy Garcia says:

    I'm so happy another Lobster Shack customer was so happily drawn into purchasing such a seemingly exotic yet tasty treat. I made them for the first time yesterday and they were wonderful.

  3. rachel says:

    My family and I have been catching, cooking and enjoying blowfish tails over the past 40 years! It's a delectable delicacy superior by far to flounder, fluke or other such insipid seafood.

    When did I say that??????????????????????????????????

  5. Mike M says:

    you do know that blowfish is a salt or brackish water fish, and Hudson is a river? They don't migrate up the river and require salinity to survive. Just saying
