“I know the human being and fish can co-exist peacefully.”


Continuing with the much lauded, highly acclaimed and compulsive series:

“Fish I Have Mainly Eaten.”

Once again we delve deep, deep into the oceans and even deeper into our pockets. The price of fish is going up at an alarming rate. This little beauty is called the ‘Samman Hamour.’

Samman Hamour

This specimen is about 18 inches in length and is a popular fish locally, or so I am told. I personally sliced (filleted) the little fella and fully intend to dust him in some lightly seasoned flour and fry him in lashings of unhealthy butter. And I’m quite sure, were he able to vocalise a preference; it’s what he would want me to do. And how does he taste?


This literary masterpiece has sat in the draft section of the blog for some time now and the fillets of fish have sat in the freezer for even longer. I believe the texture of the fish, when cooked, is somewhat moist and a tad slimy but it is only my belief. The flesh is firm when raw however, I’m sure we sampled this type of fish once before in a restaurant a few years ago.

For now, there are no plans to retrieve said fillets from their frozen embrace in the freezer. Come the time they are up and dressed in a flour coat, I’ll let you know all about it.

Why is this page being concluded then? It’s time for another new and exciting feature called,

‘Dead fish we come upon whilst walking along the beach during the afternoons.’

A classic in the making, I can assure you. And, just to whet your appetite, here is a spoiler:
