    I've got a few more banging around in my head, not just for mgm. Should we start a new thread so as not to clog up these threads?

    As long as the only ones about me highlight my many strengths, yes.

    All looks lovely. Is that a farmed striped bass? Looks small to be wild.

    Manton's cutting comes in and just shoves its balls right in everybody else's raw ingredient mouths.

    If Bhowie's going to make up a meme for that, I don't want to see it.

    I don't know if it was farmed. I asked for a small one because I knew we would have leftovers even from that and a big one would have been partially wasted.

    Yeah, I think that's a farmed one based on what I've seen between it and wild. No real noticeable difference in quality between one or the other, as far as I can tell. If your fish is very fresh, I've kept some bass fillets for upwards of three days, sealed, on ice with very little effect on the overall freshness.

    I like your style of fish/meat courses for dinner. I'll usually just focus on one or the other.

    You can always tell the farmed ones because they have broken stripes. I think they are hybrid striped bass/fresh water white bass. Taste, imo, is totally different. Wild has a very gamey flavor, and farmed is more mild. Both are nice in the right context.

    I've never eaten white bass, or seen it in any markets around here. I know you guys get it out in California. What's it most similar to?

    OK, so farmed stripe is a hybrid of freshwater white bass and striped bass. What we call white bass out here is white seabass, but it really isn't bass at all. It is a kind of croaker. That said, white seabass (croaker) is a wonderful fish. Very similar to wild striped bass, with a bit more of a tendency to dry out if overcooked, but, in my opinion, a slightly finer texture. I think it is pretty seasonal, because I haven't seen it lately. Right now herring is in season, and there is a good supply for the first time in years. It is wonderful fish, the milt is amazing. I don't know if you will see any out there since most goes to Japan and what doesn't is eaten locally, but if you do, buy it.

    One of the things I love about Mike, in every way, is that he keeps traditions alive. It's so consistent across his entire person. Awesome. [/circlejerk]
