Anybody have any good recipes for fiddleheads?

Salt Pepper - a little olive oil or butter and some high heat.
Back home in Hawaii, we would go into the rain forest to collect fiddle-heads and wood-ear mushrooms, bring them home and do a simple stir fry, loads of garlic, some chili oil and maybe some thin strips of pork, but mostly vegetarian
lovely, any snapshots Gaucho?
Sorry, no snapshots. Full meal was a london broiled flank steak with a coffee/chili rub, fried pancetta, marinated mushrooms (in a vinaigrette), and the fiddleheads. Served with a tempranillo. I'll get a snapshot next time. I did post a picture of the my first bread that I also made with the meal. Had some nice wheyside cheese post entree before a lemon sorbet.
My suggestion is similar to Michael's - except a friend from New Hampshire (ironically named Michael) told me he uses a splash of vinegar so that's how I make them. I use apple cider vinegar but I'm sure red wine vinegar would work too. I wish the season for fiddleheads was not 15 minutes long!
