How do you cook yours?
This is a joke ......Right????!!!!!?????
u serious man? lol
My buddy told me about this a couple years ago. Up in NY, they have a festival every year called "Shad Fest" where they drink a lot of beer and eat a lot of shad. Here is a link I found on it:
The kind of shad they are talking about is different than what most of us use for bait.
As they would have to travel really far to reach the ocean here in Kansas.
I had a freind of mine tell me he had eaten shad before but i have notoooh:!
He swore up and down they caught them in a river coming off Lake Erie and they were Gizzard Shad? and they were good?
Ill try anything ONCE:big_smile:!
The American and Hickory shad that run up the east coast river systems are edible and "shad bakes" are or were common in the south.The preffered eating was not so much the shad as the roe which is considered a delicacy like caviar when fried.U nfortunately due to many reasons the shad runs arent what they used to be so the shad bakes are fewer these days.They are great fun to catch though and look and jump like baby tarpon.:smile2:
:embarassed:you might want to watch about teasing the southern fisherman about eating their bait.
hate mail is bad for your health.
As the story goes, it was a run of gizzard shad that kept Washington's army from starving at Valley Forge.
i LOVE eating shad....'course they have been processed thru a catfish when i taste 'em:wink:
if i had to eat shad to survive i dont think this country boy would survive
I can't honestly believe that anyone would eat shad, LOL!!! Those are quite possibley the nastiest smelling things I have ever used for bait, I sure ain't gonna eat any of them, COUNT ON IT, LOL!!!
oooh: Nope not me!!! If i can get SHAD i can get me some catfish!!!oooh:
I fish for american shad when they are running. I dont care for the roe but like the fish. they have real small bones in the meat and are hard to eat like that. The way i fix it is like eating salmon and i fry it like salmon patties. This is the recipe. scale and fillet the shad and cut out the rub bones. Get pint canning jars and stand the shad up in the jars. fill the jars 1/2 in. from the top. put 1 tablespoon canning salt and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in each jar. do not put any water in jars. put lids on the jars and stack jars in a pressure canner. cook jars at 10psi for 1hr and 40min. let cool and they will start sealing. sit on shelf in pantry till ready to eat. open jar and pour out liquid. dump into bowl and crumble up. add 1 egg per jar into bowl. add chopped onion,salt, pepper, and just enough flour to make the patty hold together. get grease hot and fry till golden brown. ENJOY!!
Sounds like some very interesting shad stories, I will not be trying any shad anytime soon.
in Augusta when the shad are running, I used to go and catch them all the time. By the time they were reeled up the wall of the lock, they were stiff as boards. There were always a bunch of Koreans there willing to take them off your hands. Now what they did with them I don't care to know. I have heard winter Kimshi, but ignorance is bliss here.:smile2::smile2:
ill tell ya. boys around here know ill eat most anything. but even i have my limits. no gizzard shad for cats. now gizzards from chickes. ill take a big greasy bucket full.:wink:
If u look at the menu there is Gizzard Shad on it. I'm planning on starting to eat it.
