It's a big rascasse, from what I know (I may be wrong). Delicious fish. The mediterranean rock fish are just so good - I'm not too sure why. When I was a kid, my dad used to take us fishing in the evening on the beach and there were foot long mullets swimming there. Great fish too - not as good as some grilled rougets or merlans but still very tasty. I rarely find great flavor in the larger fish - although I do like salmon when it's cured or smoked well.

On the topic of brandade, as I think I mentioned before, I've never ever seen it without the mashed potato element. The concept of brandade de morue in France includes cod and potatoes (just like hachis parmentier is not served without the mashed potatoes)

i tried a dean and deluca recipe for olive oil mashed potatoes that called for a young, green olive oil (i used tiburtini). it was incredible

My mom used to put a ton of milk, butter AND creme fraiche in mashed potatoes. Needless to say, it was good.

Yeah. One of the few things my Mother in Law is good for. She makes a great salmon.

Without any doubt, Coral Trout.

I only really enjoy salmon when it is extremely rare or raw.

as for mashed potatos, i didnt know there was any other way that milk, loads of butter and whipped with a fork.

Definitely perch (had to check the translation) It's very much a Finnish fish, rather small, white meat, and filled with taste. Perfect in the summer, lightly cooked in butter, some fresh potatoes, vegetables, onion and cream sauce. *drool* Salmon, cod and trout are all good too.
