Re: The sheepheads
Hi, I soak them in the washtub in cold salt water overnight. The salt brings out any bugs that are hiding in it. The next day when I take them out, I have a short hose on the laundry tub and I spray them off real good and set them on a towel to dry for a few hours. I break them up on the cutting board into the size of pieces I want to eat and then you can see any dirt that is left on them and wipe it with a paper towel or if it's too bad, you can scrape them with a knife blade. Bring a pot of water to a boil, drop them in for 3 minutes and immediately place in ice water for 3 minutes to cool. Spread them out, let them dry again and then you can cook them how you want or freeze them. I had one that was pretty wet, so I spread them out on a cookie sheet and put them in the oven on 350 for about 10 minutes and it seemed to dry them pretty good without cooking them.
