    So I picked up 3 fresh sardines and I would like to make a fish head smoothie from the heads... I've searched the forum but having problems finding an actual recepie... that will taste good for a niewbie. I am guessing the fish head is left raw with nothing removed right? :/

    I just use small frozen fish that I get from a chinese market. I thaw a little and then chop up a bit and throw in my chopper thing with cold water and fresh lemon juice and fresh herbs - like corriander. Use what herbs appeal to you.

    whatever takes your fancy really ....I suppose some green onions would be nice.....

    I do insist on a mouthful of malbec afterwards however!

    Just don't make it too big the first time ...........just enough to scull down! It really tastes okay BTW.

    These sardine heads are like 2 1/2" long. They were previously frozen and slightly thawed when I purchased them yesterday. Today they were still really cold a tiny bit of ice. I don't know if I can do it. I wold prefer they had been frozen and slightly thawed like you do and smaller. Do you use the whole body and head since the fish are small or is it only the head. I have no lemon which would probably help. I may chicken out :eek:

    Andrea What is NOT on the menu?

    The mackerels I've come across so far have about as big heads as your sardines. One of these heads is enough for me for dinner.
    I cut them in a few pieces and put in my blender with a little water. I use them thawed; it's easier to get a somewhat smooth result. The only seasoning I use is a little black pepper on top - I quite like it that way.

    Kyra - when you use lemon and herbs it is kind of like ceviche ...and black pepper is a great idea too.
    The reason to use them slightly frozen .....I think it would be totally gross to have a warm MHS!!!

    just don't make it too big the first time .......I really just taste the lemon and herbs ...honest!!!!

    or... Just hold your nose Kyra, and imagine you drink chocolate :)

    I do that all the time. My fish head smoothies tastes no good to me must be because my fish often is not to fresh :rolleyes:

    Caroline, what do you use the rest of the fish body for after using the heads?

    They are just small frozen fish ...maybe 6-8 inches.

    I just take 1 out of the freezer and let it sit on a plate for a bit. And then chop it into chunks and blitz with the other stuff.

    The great thing about this is ....it is still partly frozen ...so you get a nice cold drink. A MHS would suck if it wasn't ice cold me thinks!

    This way you get brains, liver etc.

    Why the smoothie? Why not just eat them as they are?

    Yeah, that would be even better Dan... I just have not come so far yet... a bit too yucky for me so far o_O
    the smoothie is way easier... and faster too. Eating a mackerel head might be a bit hard as it is not too soft and small either....

    Please share if you have tried it, how was it?
