Chop off head from behind dorsal to base of gill-covers and barby wrapped in foil with butter - that's all you need! Delicious!

Use a good pair of barbecue tongs to grip the weever while you clonk it on the head, you use your artery forceps to unhook it and you use a very sharp knife to cut away the nasty part! The spines are still toxic when it's dead!

Cheers - John

clean, gut, top,tail - place on hardwood block - in a baking tray - pour over a good bottle of malt - throw fish away :yucky: and drink gravy!:)

greater weever is a much bigger fish, and delicious too, there was a photo on here six months back of a big one caught down south.

weaver is one of the main fish the frenchies put in bouillabaise
:thumbs:

Was just about to say that myself. Bouillabaise is a fish stew to us ignorant Brits. I think Keith Floyds recipe is the best, but couldn't find a link to it. Grab yourself a copy of 'Floyd on Fish' for a good 'no nonsense cookbook.

there is also a dish in spain and portugal called zarzuela, it like a rich, tomato based fish stew, with monkfish, prawns, clams, and lots of garlic.
they eat it by dunking great chunks of crusty bread into the pot, and spooning out the fishy bits as the level drops its gorgeous!!
cheers dave.:)
