So, I spent the past week buying and cooking new food. They were all good. Each was a different type of seafood. I have always been a fan of seafood, but I have never tried to make it for myself. (Unless, tunafish or fish sticks count. They count as what? I will thank you to keep your foul mouth away from my thread.) I started with shark. I was surprised how eager to help the guy behind the counter was. He told the best ways to cook it, and he pushed the marinades they had as really good with shark. I chose to just get some shark and use my own spices to cook it when I got home. I put some spices on it and cooked it in a frying pan with some butter. It was delicious.
Since I had such a good meal that night, I decided to try it again the next night. I went out to a different supermarket and faced a similarly helpful person. This time I got some catfish. This time I went along with the marinade, it was a yummy jerk seasoning. I threw in some tomatoes and Italian mushroom while I fried it. Another delicious meal.
I continued the fish tradition the next night. I picked up some Red Snapper marinated in a honey dijon marinade. This was a bit fishier then my other two choices, and it had bones, but it was still delicous. This time I got a portobello mushroom to throw in the mix. Everyone knows, portobello mushrooms are always good. Another great success.
The last night of my seafood extravaganza was good, but not as exciting. I got some shrimp and decided to make some shrimp scampi. I made too much food, which proably led to some belly badness today. But, I did a good job. It was delicious stuff.
Next on my culinary escapades? I don’t know, but, I think it will be a while before I have something as wacky as shark. I know it is a common fish, but I sure have never had it. Next I might take my new fondness for fish to the oven and try baking and broiling the stuff. If you have good combinations let me know and I will try to put them together. No need for recipes, because I like to experiment while I cook to see how things will turn out.
So there is my mundane pointless cooking story of the previous week. No need for me to post this. I guess I just feel bored since I decided to skip my night of DopeFest frivolity. Actually, I probably just wrote it so I could post that clever thread title. The rest is just useless fluff. If you read the whole thing through, you will notice the large number of times I just put in nonsense words to fill up space. It is your job to put in real words so the post makes sense. In a sense it is a post that allows the reader to participate.
