I have lived in Hawaii my whole life. I grew up going to the beach & catching fresh fish for dinner, or dad would bring them home from a weekend fishing trip. I dont go fishing as much now, but I still buy only fresh fish. If am not eatting it "RAW". I am frying the fish. Is yummy with some fresh cooked rice & a bowl of vnger & shoyu... Good.
