Thanks guys. And yes, it is raw mackerel.

that does indeed look awesome. Mackerel is one of those fish that I have yet to purchase solely because of the freshness >>> all other factors when buying.

but i do love mackerel.

Is mackerel an oily fish?

Very.

Going to have to seek it out at somewhere I feel will have fresh then. I enjoy oily fish with fresh water eel being one of my favorites.

Not 10, but just about a minute. I was quite satisfied by their lack of grayness.

It is with great pleasure that I can finally say I am in the presence of not too red lamb.

Speaking of, I'll be cooking for a crowd again. My best man and I want to cook a Mediterranean meal for the wedding party, about 25-30 people total I think including their guests. We were thinking of a bunch of little dishes (Moroccan potato salad, pickled things, glazed veggies with spices, etc...), and a few more substantial things to choose from, probably a lamb leg, grilled pompano, something with chicken, and maybe one of the dishes from Plenty. Any recipe recommendations? Dinner will be in May and we'd like most things to be prepared ahead of time. We'll probably eat socially at tables outdoors, and will grill the fish during.

whenever we entertain, i'm always amazed at how much food and wine 5-7 people plow through. I can't even fathom several multiples of that.

Sounds like a huge PITA. I'd cater, you'd probably only spend slightly more than making yourself and when you consider the time saved and possible aggravation of a dish coming out bad, you'll be way ahead of the game.

As has been recommended a few times before, Jerusalem (great leg of lamb recipe in there)- most of the recipes will work well for large gatherings. I'd also look at New Moroccan Mourad Lahlou, lots of great food there too.

Never really had a problem with running out of food, but I'm with you on the wine. I'm locking up all my wine this time around--last time we had a party it got real expensive.
