how to cook sheepshead

does anyone know how to cook sheepshead fish?  we caught a few and would like to grill them if anyone knows of a good recipie




The best way I know to cook sheephead is baking them,  Here is what I do:

Filet them and skin the filets so all you have is the meat.

Brush on a mixture of melted butter and minced Garlic on both sides then place in a glass baking dish that has been sprayed with non stick coating,  Bake at 375 for approximately 15 minutes  remove from oven and flip the filets brushing with the butter/garlic mixture again. 

after 5 additional minutes  check texture of the filets if done  (meat is flaking, white and seperates easily with a fork)  or  if near done.   Add one one can of chopped or diced Italian sytle tomatoes (Basil ,Oregano and Garlic added) reduce heat to 325 and let simmer in the tomatoes for 5 minutes.   Serve over long grain wild rice with a side salad,   ( If possible also have some fried oysters with this dish it adds another level to the experience)
