Ate a snakehead!

My husband and I are in Thailand this week, and several street vendors were selling snakehead tonight. My husband had one last time he was here, and said it was good, so I gave it a try. It's just the fish, gutted, on a stick, and grilled whole. It's a tasty fish, with a mild flavor. It absorbed the flavor of the charcoal well. It has a skin, much like a catfish. Overall, a great fish. It's sad we don't eat them in the US, because they multiply quickly, and could be a great, cheap food source.
