Seafood Diet

I just got back from Fish King,
the popular fish market in Glendale. I was a little concerned when I pulled the number 24 and looked up to see they were serving customer number 150. Just 75 more customers to go.

But the ultra-efficient employees called my number in less than 40 minutes and it took less than ten minutes for them to crack my two fresh dungennes crabs and two Alaskan king crab legs.

While I waited, I got to chat up other customers to find out what they were buying and what they planned to make. I'm nosy that way.

- One lady was purchasing fresh crab for crab cakes. She first made these as an appetizer for a fund raising dinner for PAWS-LA, and her 24 guests raved about them. The recipe is from the Williams and Sonoma recipe site. I love crab cakes (or crab anything) but have never made them at home. This goes on my list of what's cookin' in 2009.

- The same lady purchased a pound of herring because she's Norwegian. I got so excited. I almost told her that my cat is also Norwegian, but managed to restrain myself. I think I'll skip the herring in 2009.

- Another couple, who I had met at a party last Saturday, was purchasing several quarts of the ready-made lobster bisque. They were also purchasing fresh lobster to add to the soup and planned on adding a touch of sherry. Now that's my kind of recipe - easy, rich and boozy.

- A well heeled couple was purchasing several lobster tails ($59.95 a pound) for their Christmas Eve dinner. They also planned to serve fresh cioppinno. I wish I could finagle an invitation to that party.

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday filled with all of your favorite family, friends and food!

You know Fish King is good when well-heeled people will wait that long to spend that much money! Of course on a normal day, the wait is much more reasonable.

I hope your Christmas is as delightful as you are, Susan.

Merry Christmas. I hope Santa brings you something good to eat, and I hope we can read about it very soon.

OH, I'm so glad to know the fish place on this side of town! I've been in the SGV a year now and I still didn't know where to go.

How did your traditional CHristmas dish turn out?

Susan C said...

Thanks, Petrea and Margaret.

Woe is me! I have been overeating like mad.

The Christmas dinner of crab, french fries and Caesar salad came out great. Best purchase of last year was a thermometer to make sure my oil is hot enough when cooking those fries.

It's probably okay for you to overeat, Susan.:)

Susan C said...

Ha - you're right Petrea, but now that I'm off the Prednisone, I once again have a "normal" metabolism, and the weight seems to be coming back on a little TOO quickly.

Is this the company with the aqua trucks and the silkscreen line drawings of sea creatures? I really like those trucks. I see them often in downtown.

Had some problems with the squash and potato dish. Mr V. misread two cloves as two heads of garlic. I did my best to "fish" them out. Unfortunately it was hard to tell the difference between the shreaded garlic and cheese. It was better the next day and I took pictures.

Susan C said...

PA, I would have thought that the gratin would have been even better with the extra garlic. I wanna' see the pics!
