dhu bladder

hey guys, finally caught a dhu on the weekend, so though i would share this.


kept the swim bladder, opened up and cleaned it.

salted, then rinsed, then salted again, then shallow fried in oil.


tatses just like pork crackling. i was amazed it came out of a fish....will not be chucking these out in the future!

 Always thought about doing that as I have heard it's good . Still yet to try . Good to hear from someone that has tried it

 My Asian freinds have been doing this for ages but without the salt. Finger looking good.

Good for you. I just use scotch towel to wipe clean. Shallow fry thin strips . Then put salt on . I believe it can be done in micro wave ??. It’s pretty good side dish . Fish crackle
