would you be able to eat a fish if it still had the head on it?

A friend gave us some fish and oh boy was it fresh - still with the head on! Would you cut the head off and cook it, cook it with the head on, or throw it away because it freaked you out?

I would not want to eat fish that looked like it was fresh out of the water. I have seen it served like that. But I would not eat it no matter how good it tasted. There are some foods that I actually like the taste of but don't like the way that it looks. My food has to pass not just the taste test. It has to look good and smell good too. And heaven forbid if it makes noise, its a definite no.

The dish is more flavorful if you cook the fish with its head still on. If you don't like the idea of eating a fish with a head, maybe you can remove the head after it is cooked. That way you still get the added flavor.
