But, I have not found common carp to be much to my liking, though I
have tried to force it. I know that it is a preferred food fish among
many, and surely I ate it many times in various commercial preparations
when I was younger. But I've not been able to prepare it so that it
was as tasty as most other fish. Or, better said, it was too tasty
(that is, it had too much taste). Euel Gibbons claimed it was
delictable. I just found it strong tasting.
