What are you eating? (food porn)

Recommended Posts


Eating skin-on fillets was probably the second thing I got used to here, drinking instant coffee being the first...

Tilapia can be found everywhere, It's a commonly used fish for Thais  It's the red fish that you can see in every Tesco & Big C and is sold alive at waking markets.  It also comes in the gray color.  You will never find fillets. either frozen or fresh, but I've taught my fish monger how to filet it western style.  A Thai filet will still have all of the rib bones in it.
The staff at the seafood section at my nearest Big C filet all fish for you and perfectly without any bones.
Works best with Tilapia and Barramundi because they have no small bones.
Carp and catfish still have small soft bones inside.

Actually leaving the skin on while you cook it, whether or not you remove it after cooked, does add a little moisture and flavor as the little fat that a fish has is between the skin and the flesh, similar to chicken.
 
Drinking instant coffee is out, I bought a cheap espresso machine from Lazada and only drink coffee at home  Big C has a choice of a few different kinds of ground coffee:  i BUY espresso, American Blend, mocha, and  Arabica.  I had two mocha lattes this morning made with fresh cream.
Even easier and less expensive. French press or drip filter for your coffee.
By many coffee lovers the most popular method.
Nowadays you can order single origin coffee beans from Thailand that taste amazing.

Tonight's curry, Naraiyal chicken. I was going to make naan but the flour is full of weevils.

Oh, I don’t mind the skin on, it (like the head) just takes a little getting used to.

I only coffee at work, so Red Cup it is...

Where do you get fresh sea run fish the country. You can id you want frozen crap fish thawed out . I just eat salmon , and if lucky fresh barra. Most of the fish in makro are not fresh , and same as tops .I was a fishmonger in Australia for many years and have taught my wife what to look for when buying fish . I brought a vacuum machine from makro just for sous vide cooking and just use a thermometer 

 

I've never been a fishmonger, but I'll offer my perceptions re fish here:

 

--My guess is that most of the "fresh" sea fish that's sold in commercial markets here is in fact thawed out frozen fish.

 

--And whether it's really fresh caught or frozen and thawed, once in the market, I wouldn't take any bets on how long it's left sitting around and what they may spray or put on the fish to try to extend its shelf life.

 

--And even if it WAS fresh caught fish, with all the c**p being poured into the oceans around Thailand and elsewhere in Asia, I'd be very leery of eating much of anything that's been swimming around in the muck that currently passes for our oceans.

 

Then add mercury contamination, radiation waste from the melted down Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, plastics waste and lord knows what else, and it's hardly an appetizing picture -- if you sit and think about it.

Lucky we're in Thailand, where they have this thing with "thinking too much".
