For the longest time, Australians refused to eat leatherjackets. Misconceptions about their edibility can be found in the Old Testament, in which consuming fish without scales is prohibited. These days (unless of course you keep Kosher or Halal), their lack of scales should prove no obstacle. Underneath the skin is excellent flesh - firm, sweet, and glossy with Omega-3. Leatherjackets should be part of every seafood lover’s stable.
