Spitec one of the best ways i find for cooking barracuda is cartocio. When i have one which is over a kilo i fillet it removing the bone in the middle as it doesnt have any other bones. I then but it into 4 pieces and putting the meat facing upwords on the dish. i garnish and season with finely chopped tomatoes, some garlic, mint and basil and salt & pepper. then some white whine and some olive oil u ejdli xinti tikol :p

u can add water instead of white wine granitu when preparing fish 'al cartoccio'. I prefer water when the fish is very delicate like bass for example and I add more wine when the fish has a stronger taste like red mullet.

claudio, if red mullet is trill it is not my favorite fish. i never shoot it cause i don't like it's taste but my mother loves them.... she's the cook i am the sort of the "bread winner"- fish winner in this case....

well groupers do have a good taste but they are becoming rare and never caught one because the examples i see are too small.. 1kg range. mullet if clean is an excellent fish so are saragi species(grufulatori), especially the mingus, which has a sort of sweet taste
