Help - Robin fish??

graphiteheart | Dec 9, 201108:24 PM     7

Hi all,

I am hoping someone can hep me out here. My well-meaning husband went to the local high-quality butcher shop to pick up some fish for dinner tonight. I don't know what happened, but he came home with... I don't know.

He said its something like a robin fish. It is whole, skin-on, but boned and has the head removed, and weighs one pound. Apparently the butcher said it is good roasted, or in a stew.

I tried to google it and look up a recipe online and found nothing. I am not a particularly experienced or skilled cook and I have no idea what do do with this thing. It is Friday night at 8:30 and I am hungry, and don't want to waste $13 worth of mystery fish.

Does anyone know what I can do with this thing?

Many thanks,
Tracy
