Late last week and again, today, various friends and neighbours have been the recipients of fishy gifts. One, a farmer offered us eggs, which we declined. Last Winter he regularly left vegetables from his crops, in our garden. Today though, the farmer's wife was insistent on gifting us a large juicy cabbage.
If I do not cook fish five days a week from now on, there is a enough fish stored to keep us fish-fed till early 2011. If there are just a few more days of fishing hauls, we will have to obtain another freezer, just a small one. Even so, I am not sure where I would install it.
To make space for the sea food catches, three meals in the last two weeks were not fish-centred.
I have broiled fish with gentle spices;
I have coated fish in flour with flavourings to flash fry it;
I have baked fish in butter;
Mackerel has been BBQ'd with thyme;
I am beginning to feel I am about to sprout fins.
