I shot a decent size opelu. I hear these are great for sashimi / poke. What is a good and easy recipe? also, if you decide to cook it, what are some good recipes?

you get 1 or more????

usually a dish that has opelu has more than one fish. better to have like 4-8 fish

but if only 1 really big opelu u get,
butterfly n fry crispy wit some salt n pepper. served over 2 scoops of rice with a lemon/calamansi shoyu/1 crushed hawaiian chili pepper dipping sauce!

Peel the membrane, pull off the fins, and fillet with your fingers. Salt, grated ginger, shoyu, and thin sliced onions, and you got grindz.

but like yotd1976 said, more the better.
