Are there any good Buffalo carp recipes out there? I know it's a strange question, but I've aways been curious as to how they taste.

Buffalo - good stuff, especially the rib meat since it only has the big rib bones in it. Fried buffalo rib meat with your favorite seasoning mix fried to a golden brown.

Smoked Buffalo with some homemade BBQ sauce is a killer too or you can change out to garlic-butter with parsley and Lea & Perrins while grilling/smoking it.

I've heard of that before. Is that the only part of the buffalo that is worth eating? What about the fillet themselves? I always hear about the ribs, nothing about the fillets.

They're similar to salmon only more boney and you have to pull the pin bones out before cooking, but all is really pretty white meat.

Pressure cooker with 2 Tablespooons of Old Bay in 2 Cups of water for 45 minutes meat falls off the big bones and little ones are gone.
I've cooked small carp this way and it is very good, I'm sure Buffalo is also.

Thanks for the info. I'd also really like to try buffalo. I've heard people say they're good. Unfortunately I have yet to catch one. Guess I better get started giving it a try. From what I've heard the best time to catch them is before summer sets in.

^if we hear the ceder plank one more time on here.....

yeah you scor the the meat, also you need to make sure the grease is super hot this "melts" the bones....up north when you go to a fish fry, your eating carp...I don't eat them but I have tried it in the past at a TPWD event and I thought it was great.

Also Brett in the rough fish section eats alot of buffalo he even cans it, says its much better then tunna or salmon from a can
