Coral trout but it's a bit hard to catch round here, in order mako, flathead, gummie shark
Squid as an entree

I agree. Even though KGW is a good tasting fish.. I would have to say kingfish is my number 1. Followed by gummy, KGW, leather jacket, flathead and then squid.. never tried mako...

Garfish is my favourite fish to eat in Vic tbh.

I knock fillets off, (leave bones in - they disolve as they are cooked) roll the fillets up, and push a toothpick into them, then roll them in flour seasoned with salt, pepper, chilli, etc.

Then I cook up a sauce where I melt down some anchovy fillets and garlic/diced onion, until it is saute'd and broken down, add a can of diced tomatoes and reduce until its lost its acidity. add some herbs (basil, oregano, etc)

Once the sauce is done, I shallow fry the fish in a high smoke point oil, and then remove the tooth picks and put them in the sauce over a low simmer.

I then sear off some green veg (asparagus, broccolini, etc) in some oil, butter, salt, pepper and lemon juice and serve the rolled up fillets on a bed of the sauce with a side of crunchy seared veggies.

One of my favourites.
