The Kahawai were just wild off Waikanae beach today - thousands of them everywhere - one cast one fish.
Just me (and family) and an Aussie guy fishing. The Aussie guy was having a ball.
We caught about 30 Kahawai between us - gave a dozen or so to people on the beach.
When I was leaving I saw someone doing some salt water fly fishing - even he caught one - we were watching him waiting for him to land the beast - but he must have been one of those light line ponces - we gave up - and went home to prepare our catch.
So we bled the Kahawai straight away - then smoked 2 and filleted 2.
- 2 Smoked Kahawai
- 2 Kahawai Fillets
- 1 1/2 Cups Tasty Cheese
- 1/2 Cup Flower
- 3 Cups Milk
- 2 teaspoons Basil
- 2 teaspoons Dried Kawakawa
Look Kahawai is just great - just bleed and gut them straight away - remove the dark brown flesh - and cook same day. If you don't like my Kahawai fish pie - then YOU SUCK!
