Lesson learned: when company is coming for dinner, Do Not wait til 11:30 Saturday morning to go to fish market.
Everything was pretty much gone or sliced up enough that what was in the case was the dregs. The cod pile was pretty decimated too but doable. The man next to me had called in an order of FOUR POUNDS of Wild Alaskan King Salmon. I leaned over and said What time shall we come by and I got a stare back like Lady what’s up with you?! I should have known better than to attempt to get a man driving a fancy BMW and wearing driving Mocs to laugh. No sense of humor whatsoever.
There was Naturally Raised salmon and Farm Raised Salmon. I have no idea the difference. What the hell is naturally raised anything??
Halibut ….$32.99! Holy expensive fish Batman.
I wanted shrimp too but I was asked to give to my first born as payment so I went to the supermarket and got mystery frozen shrimp farm raised in Indonesia. Gulp. Hopefully no one will be calling me tomorrow to report food poisoning.
And I rounded out the morning shop with some wine and ginger beer for Dark and Stormy drinkers. I closed my eyes and grabbed the rosé in the prettiest bottle with the nicest label. I noticed lots of women like their rosé so I thought it best to have some on hand.
