Buffalo Fish Recipes

I have been noticing quite a few people asking for buffalo fish recipes. Not only have people asked me about cooking buffalo fish, but I have read through numerous questions and answers regarding recipes for buffalo fish.

It cracks me up in amazement how many ridiculous answers there are from all of the inexperienced fish related cooks out there. Okay, I'll ease up to give the benefit of doubt,... as I can see how this can be so easily  misinterpreted.

First of all, a buffalo fish is a freshwater species of fish. It's not  just a fish cooked like a buffalo chicken wing with a special type of hot sauce and blue cheese or ranch dressing. A buffalo fish is just that, a freakin' fish! For those who still don't get it, a buffalo fish is quite often mistaken for the bottom feeding carp.

Just in case you are actually looking for a fish dish cooked buffalo wing style, we have also included one for you too. Hey, I love buffalo wings just as much as the next person :-)
