I never even thought this "fish" was edible.
I grew up and live at the Jersey Shore. My dad had 2 daughters instead of sons so he took us to do all of the things he would have done with boys... including charter boat fishing. Long story short, I've seen probably 100 sea robins bashed against the side of the boat to stun them so the mates could remove them from the hook.
Why did they never offer them to the people fishing on the boat? Guaranteed you'd always catch at least 2 sea robins to 1 fluke/flounder.
I was intrigued when I read about the Las Vegas Border Grill Trash Fish dinner a couple of weeks ago. They served sea robin ceviche as one of the first courses.
Has anyone ever attempted to cook sea robin before? If so, how?
