We were watching Masterchef The Professionals and this is one of the items they had on tonight's table for the 12 chefs to pick from.

I have never heard of it before:

a John Dory fish.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dory

That is one ugly fish.

Out of that whole ugly fish,

you get a tiny filet on the plate.

Maybe 8 oz?

Where's the rest of it?

Look at the miserable look on the face of that fish. He's ugly....and he's being eaten. And you think YOU have problems?

I am not much of a fish fan.

I also don't want to see a fish with the eyes staring back at me.

They may be ugly, at least they'll never be fat shamed.

Fish is healthier for you.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Nothing beats a well marbled rib-eye. Well, a 1 1/2 inch thick perfectly seasoned and cooked pork chop would run a close race.

A properly done salmon steak is right up there IMO, as long as we're talking fresh, non farmed salmon.

We have a store here that sells pork chops from pigs raised in the UK.

Center Porterhouse cut chops are $10 a lb.

Each chop is about 16-20 oz cause of the bone.

But they are soooo good and moist and juicy even after you grill them.

I think their name is Berkshire if I am remembering right.

That looks like a Verlasso Salmon steak, Crane Hunter

Only salmon steaks I eat.

Ugly? I think the idea is you eat it, not marry it wink

British fishermen, much constrained by EU fishing quotas feel fortunate when they land John Dorys. Much valued, particularly in France I believe.

Though not popular now, English Fish 'n' Chip shops used to sell 'Rock Salmon', as nobody would want to eat Dog fish which is was it's true title.

At least it's not a blobfish.

It's my understanding that "real" English fish & chips is usually either Plaice or Cod?

Cod is more traditional I would say Panzer. At least in the fish and chip shops I've frequented,if I wanted Plaice I would have to ask for it,because if you ask for fish and chips you are getting Cod for sure.

Nothing against a salmon steak, but I think salmon is better in fillet.

Now HALIBUT steaks, oh yeah...

Snails and squids don't whet the average appetite, but escargot and Calamari are delicious (IMO). In fact, most seafood "on the hoof (fin?)" look at least a little disgusting. Cows aren't exactly going to win any aesthetics competitions, either. Fortunately, not only do we not have to marry it, most of the time we don't have to prepare it, either.


SALUTE TO ALL!

Salmon steaks are more forgiving to cook than filets as they don't dry out as easily.

A moderate sear on both sides does the job, while the skin holds in all the juices and oil that you'd probably otherwise lose in a filet.

Plus, you don't have to worry about the skin sticking or burning.

I never had true authentic English Fish and Chips.

I need to take a trip to the UK.

Especially when I saw this episode a few years ago.

Move forward by about 9 minutes.

Depends on how you're cooking it. For the BBQ yeah steaks are definitely easier to manage. Myself, I mostly do fish either in the oven or on a cast iron skillet. But I'll cook any meat via any means and make it good!
