Best part of the fish - easiest to prepare with the best flavor and fat/flesh combination. I order every chance I get at restaurants and it's a STEAL ordering from Riviera Seafoods. Quality and portions are amazing - a staple for me.
Often discarded the collars are considered a delicacy and are absolutely full of flavor and mouth watering fats. I love a simple marinade and a quick broil to crops the skin and just barely cook the meat through. They are fun to eat too, like chicken wings of the sea! Highly recommend.
