    A fishmonger once told me the secret to skinning a fillet - skin one way, knife the other.

    I have never worked with Shun knives, but I always take the most flexible blade that I can for removing the skin. Basically, you want to be able to feel the difference between just the skin and the skin and a little flesh. I know that some Japanese-trained chefs use a thicker (and longer) blade, but that has never worked for me.
    I use a rigid knife to skin, flexible to fillet.

    I made a big pan of paella for company last night. Mussels, squid, shrimp, chorizo, chicken, pork ribs. [​IMG] 70s-ish tablecloth is a special shout-out to sfield.

    Made a light lunch. My friends' mom invited me over for dinner tonight for some authentic Chinese cuisine; I look forward to it. [​IMG] [​IMG] I ate the Burrata for breakfast; the shrimp were for lunch.

    on the left, a celery "stew" served over a bed of rice + saffron, some fresh herbs (mint, basil) and a slice of radish on it, a grilled tomato, a grilled onion that looks like the flower, and a grilled jalapeno.
    on the right, blueberries and mangos yummm


    Oh ok. Thought it was some kind of sashimi tuna pouch like this thing Susur Lee made on top chef masters.

    Matt, I just love these two from Robuchon and have made the lamb one a couple of times now. I could never get it to look so neat...

    It was a birthday celebration for my grandmother

    Wish I could say I made it...all I did was speculate on whether the salmon was done and do my own plating.

    what problem did you have?

    Falls apart when it comes out of the ring mold - I think I either had too much liquid or didn't press firmly enough. Tasted great, looked deflated compared to yours.
