Kay, I'm a medium rare kind of guy myself. If you like lamb, I think you would also like goat. IMO, I think it tastes quite a bit like lamb. The thing I think that puts most people off is that it tends to have a lot of fat and bones, and almost always involves a lot of cutting around things to get to the good stuff. But I find it to be a very tasty meat.

Me neither, that's why I wanted/needed it.

They say don't refreeze the tuna but I couldn't eat it all and refroze about 4-5 ounces that wasn't even soft thawed yet.

I'll haul it out tomorrow night and whip up some wasabi and soy sauce.

I totally understand cats liking fish! (Not that I like cats. I'm a dog person.)

I was just kidding Snippy. :) We gotta keep the mods awake here. PF seems to have been especially benign lately...

That's what turned me off seeing goat in my new local Super King market, the goat chunks looked all fat and bones. I think I should try it in a restaurant first.

Same time I was trying to find some lamb that was affordable and not all bones and fat, didn't find that either. Not at a price I can afford. There were nice lamb racks....

It is gross! It's not actually a prawn, it's the King Cricket. It's called the Parktown prawn because of the looks and colour and the fact that they are all over Parktown in Natal.

It's a cricket, an insect. I don't eat insects except accidentally.

Get back to me if they move lobsters into the insect family...

I haven't had any because we only get frozen fish. Don't live near the coast anymore
We do have one supermarket that stocks fresh fish now and again. I really must get a sushi fix soon!

I'm not a big fan of Nori so I prefer Ngiri Sushi, Salmon roses and Sashimi.

I can handle Nori in inside out rolls, somehow having the nori on the inside makes it less offensive
