boiled rockfish recipe
looking for advice on rockfish recipe my friend told me about. You need thick filets for this recipe from a 30+ pound fish. Cut the filets into big chunks and boil in water with sugar in water. Then dip in butter like crab or lobster. He said it was awesome. I've never tried it and he ate it at friends house on the eastern shore. Wondering if anyone else has tried this and could give more details.

So good. About a quart of water, bring to a boil. Add 1/2cup sugar and dissolve it. Add about 1lb rockfish chunks. Bring it back to a boil, turn off heat and let sit for 20 minutes. Eats like crab.

When I was a kid we used to do this with catfish chunks.
Boiling water with salt and a little sugar in it.
Throw them in for just a few seconds and fish them out with a slotted spoon (I'd use a spider now)
Does have a similar texture and tastes remarkably like lobster or crab.
