Roasted Fish Heads/Cabezas De Pescado Asados

Most people, at least in England,wouldnt dream of eating fish heads,but they are absolutely tasty!! I have used Salmon heads for this, as they have a lot of flesh.


4 Salmon Heads, with the gills ripped out…Or you can get your fishmonger to do this!

Seasoned Oil(Two teaspoons of seasonings):

Black OR White Pepper
Pimentón Dulce(Sweet Smoked Spanish Paprika)
Chilli Powder(Optional)
Powdered Garlic(Optional)
Juice Of Half A Lemon


Take out the gills of the fish heads, or have a fishmonger to do it for you.
Wash the fish heads in vinegar and water, and then pat dry with a kitchen towel. Prepare the seasoning oil,and pour over the fish,rubbing the seasoned oil over the fish. Place in a baking tray on 200 degrees for 10 minutes, and then turn down the heat to 180 degrees, and leave to cook for a further 20 minutes, or until crispy. Serve with a salad, and Parsley-Ginger Dressing, and crusty bread. Enjoy!!
