FISH TAILS — HDS
- All you home-delivery folks should be real proud of yourselves for gettin’ along so well without any “Tail” for the last coupla’ weeks … I’m back again for more. Anybody know how to make an Octopus laugh? Why sure, you just give it “ten-tickles”. And to all of you brand new readers, this is as good a time as any to opt out.
- So the demolition & clean-up of what remained from the Pier 45 Fire has been progressing quite nicely, leaving us with a greatly expanded view of da’ Bay, but due to the poor air quality lately, today is really the first day that there is actually a new view to take in. Which is a reminder that if you’re in da’ City, access on to Pier 45 is a lot easier now, so c’mon by to pick up your order, enjoy our view, and ask us about our NEW Ready-to-Cook Seafood Entrees — There’s three fish: NORWEGIAN COD or WILD SOCKEYE SALMON or NEW ENGLAND SCALLOPS (Bristol’s iconic brand), done either Sesame Seaweed/Teriyaki style or Blackened/Butter style … Try all six! Check out da’ Price-List.
- Seasons are winding down on Local CA KING SALMON & Local ALBACORE, so if you haven’t had your fill, don’t wait much longer. Some real nice Local BLACK COD in da’ house, and there should be some Fresh Mendocino UNI in by Thurs or Friday.
- ONO & SWORDFISH & AHI / WHITE C-BASS & Farm’d STRIPED BASS / HALIBUT x 2 / ROCK & TRUE COD / Farm’d SALMON x 6 / Etc, etc. — you know the drill — check out da’ Price List & other attachments, and a reprint of some previous stuff below, which is known as re-“Tail” … and Go Giants!
- TOMBO vs Albacore — they are both White Tuna, not Ahi, and they are the same species. When young, the fish known as Albacore follow the North Pacific/Japanese current, and this is the time of year when they pass by Calif & OR; small fish, delicate & soft meat, very fatty, definitely in the top three of my favorite-est fish! Then the fish get older, (and bigger, and firmer-fleshed), and also much wiser, so they decide to retire to the easy life of Hawaii/Fiji/South Pacific, they change their name to Tombo, and some of ’em end up as a center-of-the-plate entree at fine dining establishments, and not-so-lucky ones end up in a can labelled “white tuna” or “premium cat food”.
- Another discussion point that came up recently has to do with COOL (Country of Origin Labeling), which is meant to be informative, but in fact is very misunderstood, because it’s very misleading and not informative. A classic example is Frozen Alaskan Cod, which may caught by a Vietnamese fisherman on a Portuguese-flagged boat out of Vancouver, B.C. (Canada), fishing in Alaskan (USA) waters, and unloading the catch onto a Chinese-owned factory-at-sea ship, who then processes the fish that’s featured in your McFish sandwiches … and AK Cod is considered a “Product of China”. We know that the fish aren’t required to show their passport when swimming across borders, but there’s never been an AK Cod anywhere near China. But what if this fish (or any other) is labelled “Product of USA?” — That too is very uninformative, as the USA could mean AK or Hawaii or Maine or Florida or Texas or Calif — all different waters, all different ecosystems.
