1 Fish 5 Dish
No writing just pictures!
i take pictures while driving. pictures are more important than your safety on the road! just kidding…
You’re probably wondering what is the big deal with the picture? Catalina Island 26 miles offshore was incredibly clear yesterday.
once down the hill.
try: i walk down the hill /to get the fish /yes.
(I don’t know how to write Haiku, just play with fish and boars)
My friend earlier in the day sounded so dejected he hadn’t been able to get into the water. One of his workers who rides a motorcycle was hit by a car : ( Food is meant to be shared! Dropped him some fish and took the rest home…but not before he and his wife “forced” me to drink some port and eat some pizza 🙂
So then the compulsory oysters (fanny bay and santa barbara hope) with some white wine to enjoy figure out what to make….I had a magic number “5” in my head, and wanted to make 5 things from 1 fish. I love clams and mussels and their broth is incredible, tastes like the ocean., so I started with that. Then some textural contrasts with crispy skin and after going with broths and nicer looking plates decided to kick it back to filet-o-fish wednesdays with some fish eaten by hand. well no, my hand does not eat, but you know what I meant.
