disregard... i found a recipe haha these are yellow croakers....seems i have to descale them and trim them up!! here is the recipe if anyone else finds whole fish at the asian market fr $1.99 for an entire box like me! it was their grand opening
2 whole yellow croaker, scaled and cleaned
1/4C Coarse salt
Whole bunch of frozen fruit and vegetable peels, such as orange, lemon, lime, onion, celery, ginger, etc
Korean soy sauce for dipping, optional
1 Remove all the scales on the fish including body, around head, behind fins.
Wash them well. Trim off all the fins and sprinkle salt inside and outside of fishes.
Place on the plate and cover with plastic wrap.
2 When ready, preheat your oven on broil setting. The rack should be about 3 inch from the heat.
Wash the fish again to remove excess salt. Set aside.
3 Line a jellyroll pan with foil and spread the frozen fruit and vegetable peels all around. Spray a broil rack or mesh with oil spray and place on top of the peels.
4 Give a few slits on both side of fish with a knife and place the fish on top of the pan.
Place the pan in the hot oven with broil setting. Broil for 8-10 minutes each sides. Carefully flip in between.
Serve with Korean soy sauce if you wish. Dip bite size fish just a little bit in the sauce.
