A mate caught a 1m dhu on reel force last week and doesn't eat the shit parts of the fish so I got the wings.


Thai dhu fish wings with salad:

Juice 2 lemons, finely chop 1 chilli, 2 tbsp brown sugar, soy sauce, 1 tbsp fresh ginger, white wine and mix all together.


Place baking paper on tray and cover fish with marinate, put in the oven and baste every 10min until cooked.


Salad was simple; spinach, avocado, capsicum, carrot, roasted pumpkin and what every dressing you like, washed it all down with a cab sav.


I only cooked half the wings this time and it feed 2 of us easily but it was a massive fish, filleted right to make sure ya get the belly and there is less wastage left over.

It's a great bit of the fish and the smell out the oven with that ginger was killer.

 I would argue that the wings aren't the shit part. I love them!

 Dhui wings are the best regardless how you cook them , also surprising how much flesh is left on the bone after filleting , so we BBQ that as well
