Think Smaller, and with More Legs

Think Smaller, and with More Legs

This heinous little bastard is what they use to make McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwiches. Its called a blue grenadier.

What? Why yes, I am reading Four Fish right now, how did you know? Heh, I guess it is “2010’s Omnivore’s Dilemma”and I do “just sort of look like that kind of dope”. Guilty as charged!

That’s actually not totally true. The entire “Salmon” chapter, approximately 25% of the book, passes with no mention of the taste of farmed salmon. In fact, there is no wild vs. farm taste comparison till over halfway through the book, when they are discussing cod! Its really more a book about fishing than eating.

authored by my former coworker and brown alum paul greenberg!

I was wondering if he was a brown alum because he says something about driving past the lights of his former college town, Providence, RI. nice. Speaking of Brown, there’s a part about Shira’s dad’s magic salmon company.

It’s a good book so far!

Stumbled upon some great fodder for our rival to Just A Little Guy today over at Shoot!. The photos come from a book entitled The Deep: The Extraordinary Creatures of the Abyss, which probably contains material for a couple months. Or wait, is killeranimalssayhi.blogspot.com setup already?
