Continuing the highly acclaimed series:
‘Fish I Have Mainly Eaten’
I submit for your delectation, the following chaps (Naizer and Hallam – types of fish) who made the ultimate sacrifice to appear… on my plate; I thank you…
It almost seemed a shame to eat him, being colourful and all that, but he was dead anyway and if I didn’t cook him up to devour the soft, tasteless flesh, then somebody else would have so it was first come – first served with a wedge of lemon.
After a short interlude, whereby a number of other fish were sliced and diced including Tuna, Dover Sole, King Fish and half of a Norwegian Salmon, these two cheery chums made it to the limelight for their fifteen minutes of fame on this blog. Now, it was a toss up between filleting them with a pen knife or frying them whole and nibbling off the crispy flesh. Whatever was decided is of little consequence, suffice to say they sizzled in butter and presented themselves for consumption as one would expect in such circumstances.
As you can clearly see, for the purpose of a filling meal there was little hope however, for a sweet, succulent nibble, they were just the ticket.
Last week, whilst looking for interesting things to fry up and consume, I came across a number of Hammerhead Sharks lying on an icy slab. Can you eat Hammerheads? I suppose so as they were available. They were next to some regular sharks, baby ones by their size, and I was very tempted but thought better of it having remembered an unsavoury incident with a Dog-Fish a few years ago. Anyway, that’s for another time.
