Hurray, right in time for the arrival of the first 40 Chinese tourists to Thailand.    

Prawn cocktails all round then ..

I like my seafood from the sea....not farmed freshwater produce.

GF's family are in the prawn business, farming and wholesale, and they're struggling right now as the maket has shrunk, bth domestic and export. There's already a surplus yet they want to produce more? Don't quite understand the logic......again!

More lagoons filled with soil killing nitrates. Once these farm ponds are abandoned and dried out the soil is so depleted nothing  will grow. 

 

 

If it is managed well, they can use the nitrates as a fertiliser for vegetable production.

So the product taste is zero but dip it in this and give it flavour.....    stupid  imo.

 

seafood prawns from the ocean win hands down.  

Isn't that what good cooking is all about, turning bland favours into delicious ones? Before I came to live here, I was under the very false impression that fish and other freshwater produce would have no flavour. How can it living in fresh water?

 

But how wrong I was. We often enjoy fresh caught fish from the rivers and the lakes around us and much of it with the minimum amount of enhancement. And shrimps and prawns are a regular part of our diet, all of it delicious.

no ... wrong .... it's bland and the sauce only makes the taste

 

One chef's "bland food" is another chef's blank slate to produce a masterpiece. 

 

Just like pangasius.  Starts out bland, but it ends up being what you make of it.

Are you telling me my wife's a lousy cook?

 

Sorry, I suggest that what's bland is your sense of taste.

It's the sauces, the herbs, the vegetables, the spices, the cooking process, and the skills of the chef.

 

I question the insinuation that they're not good because they start out bland.

 

Personally, I think they should look into growing mud bugs, like they do in the rice fields of Louisiana.  Another "bland" protein that is outstanding boiled, or in a gumbo.  Or a po-boy sandwich.  And they supplement the income of rice farmers.

 

if you've seen what they feed farmed pangasius, tub tim, tilopia, fresh water shrimps and many other species ....  you wouldn't eat it again .....  chook sh_t comes to mind.    lol
