Now I know when I see a recipt like that either someone didn't take care of it right. Or waited to long to cook it.Blue fish are great if you bleed them and they got to be put on Ice right away.ALSO keep them on the small sizes 3-8lbs. I though so untill someone showed me this. Try it you might like it.

Just saw this post. I rarely keep bluefish, but when I do, 90% go to the smoker. BUT give this a try. It's great for fish like blues, spanish and magic on triggerfish.
Let it soak in Gulden's Spicy brown mustard overnight and fry em up.

A tinker blue 1/2-pound to 1-1/2-pound is a great eating fish as long as you get them on ice ASAP and eat them the same day. I like mine skinned and fried in House Autry Seafood Breader.

Such bluefish haters here! You North Carolina boys get them in bad shape, though - they are all skinny when they hit the beaches. We called them "racer blues" when I fished down there. The fish fatten up as they travel north and are truly fantastic BBQ fare by the time they hit Jersey.
Blues are one of THE best smoked fish there is, as Backcast says, and they are excellent grilled or broiled with salsa or citrus or tomato sauces. They are too oily to be poached or fried, and don't freeze worth a damn. But fresh out of the water? Wow. It's one of the things I miss about leaving the East: We don't have blues in California.
I love all of God's creatures, properly prepared.
