Meat is meat, good job on recovering a feed.
A roadkilled deer is still better than a commercial pig or chook any day of the week.

Served it with a side of boiled greens, duck fat potatoes and a young cold climate shiraz. We have leftovers for a few days. :D

That looks amazing BJss...!!
Flathead has got to be one of the best fish, if not the best eaten fresh out the water.

I went to a collegues place for dinner cupla years back.
They went to the fishmongers & got atlantic salmon & a little bit of flattie to try that was apparently fresh in thst day....
They gave me a choice of fish & i said id have the flattie--
Pompus gits--they actually felt bad because according to them you cant get better than genetic engineered hormone & colour died pink fed bland as cardboard atlantic sh1t fish...
I insisted on prepping & cooking my own flattie on their barbie as they were unsure how to cook it.
Lightly crumbed with barly a few minutes flash over the hotplate & i drooled & groaned my way to desert...!! :clap:
Farmed Atlantic salmon over fresh flattie...bludy fools...!!!

Relaxing weekend of cooking at home for me, I don't like going away long weekends.

Like you I would take a fresh flattie over farmed salmon, or any salmon, any day of the week.
Flip a coin between KG whiting and a flattie for my Victorian tastebuds, although nannygai are pretty awesome on the rare occasion I have had a chance to go after them

Ill take fresh flattie out of the water anytime, only because whiting are easier come by for me...
Mind you, if frozen whiting is the go-i rekon flathead looses flavour once frozen...whiting freezes really well & keeps for a long time frozen.
I envy you neing able to just go catch a feed...!!
Good luck to ya mate..!! :thumbsup:

Reminds me of the good ol' days pre calici virus headin up the river in the EH...

Just like you can tell the difference in noise from a gut shot to a headshot on a bunny with a 22lr, i used to listen for the bunnies that ran under the car...
If it was a pop, i kept driving knowing it went under the tyres...
If i heard a sharp crack, i knew id nutted it with either the crossmember, front end or diff...so id pull up, give it the "hunting surgeon squeeze test" drop the guts n be on my merry way... :thumbsup:

Doesn't happen now with the 4bee being too high...they either live to dodge another bullet or end up pressed out as a crows protein platter.

Ahh,,, gotta love the old crossmember donk, It took a while after our first date to condition the missus that it was a good sound that meant food (and that I was not a complete psycho) :lol: .. :D But I got there, now she points them out and or swerves to get them (even after twenty odd years away from them in the NT....) :thumbsup:

Btw.. Fark I miss my EH... :(

Relocated back to Vic a little while back, was in the NT for over 20 years. I did see a few EH's up there but not many, I think you would be surprised at how much they go for these days. Even if it's in pretty rough condition I'm tipping that you're likely sitting on a nice wad of cash there Stix :thumbsup:

Haha. I missed out on road kill venison by an hour or so on Sunday. Dead fallow buck, maybe 2 year old on the edge of the road that I stopped to have a look at and move off the road, still had wet blood but was cold and rigour had started to kick in........... Had a good chat with another hunter who pulled up while I was there.

Nice stix, been chasing a property recently for bunnies so I can diversify my game diet, love a slow cooked bunny over winter.

I did a fallow casserole last night with heaps of pancetta, shallots, carrots, redwine, stock, tomato and fresh marjoram and sage from the garden...roasted sprouts and mash on the side...love winter eating.

Off to Tokyo tomorrow so sushi and ramen will be on the menu the next couple weeks.
