: Of corse your not kidding Carl.
: My point is bitter tasting shark is unusual to me, therefor possibly it is not the quality he thinks it is.
: The soaking in milk thing....
: Boy this fish taste bad but its the only thing we have to eat. Well if we wash all the flavor out of it the I guess we could force it down.
: A guy bought me chickens once that wouldn't kill you if you ate them but they were strong smelling and he said if I boiled them in baking soda and water they would be all right. Maybe that would work for Mark.
: If something taste bad throw it out and start over. Never serve someting just because.
I really was kidding, kind of. But if you had made the above point in your original post, it would have been more helpful.. That is my point.
Anyways, you are correct in discarding anything that smells bad. I did not mean to infer that soaking in milk was intended to "bring back" a spoiled or spoiling product. I have found that at times there are tendencies in certain fish and fowl that will give them an odd taste if prepared in a bland recipe, the milk give some assurance of better taste.
By ALL MEANS, if you suspect it to be spoiled or "off flavor", DISCARD it.
As always, I appreciate your input Tim
