Hi all,

I'll be off on a short break until May 6th. So whatever running discussions I am involved in: You win by default ;-)

Oh, and I think Scott could really use your help in the mean time. If you see an interesting story somewhere, please submit it:

Being retired I don't get vacations, Sander I am quite jealous. Have fun.

I did. I ate oysters (raw) and shark, neither of which I ever ate before. I didn't care much for the oysters (I'd like to try them au gratin instead of raw) but I highly recommend trying shark if you ever get the chance. It is a very soft, white fish but with a very strong and unique flavour. Quite different from any other white fish I've tried.

I would like to try it. However, I know Dino won't. Lawyers don't eat shark. (Professional courtesy ;)

Agreed, but it some folks find it's flavor overwhelming, and don't like it. Of course, some folks feel that way about scallops or lobster too.

Used to be the fish of choice for the Fish and Chip shops in NZ and Australia, they sold it as flake. On the Island where I grew up we ate pretty much anything we caught, including shark. If you get a chance try Kina (Sea urchin roe), it's very peppery. In New Zealand you could get it from Fish and Chip shops in little coastal towns, usually deep fried in batter.
