I've been eating a lot of meat, but no new meat. How sad.

#65 - Matjes Herring (Clupea harengus) - Pickled in a tin that's actually labelled with the type of herring.
#66 - Sprats (Clupea something-else-us) - Same brand, different label, so at least I know it's not Matjes.

Picked up a few things in Pittsburgh, and a bit since.
#60 - Tilapia (Oreochromis nilotica) that MaryBeth brought for the grill.
#61 - Redfish / Ocean Perch (Sebastes mentella) that I picked up at Giant Eagle for the grill.
#62 - Reef Triggerfish (Rhinecanthus aculeatus) that I also picked up at Giant Eagle.
#63 - Pacific Oyster (Crassostrea gigas) at a local restaurant. Odd how I had Atlantic Oyster so much sooner.
#64 - Flying Fish (family Exocoetidae, unknown species), or at least the eggs, at a sushi place. Not fond of it.

Nothing exciting. I just noticed that the Kroger fake crab I was munching on had a species in it that wasn't in the K-rab brand I was eating a while back, and they even specified "Pacific" on it, narrowing it to a single species. w00t!
#58 - Pacific whiting (Merluccius productus)
#59 - Gnat (Diptera something-or-other). It got in my food. I ate it just to add another species here. It was not tasty.

#56 - Escolar (Lepidocybium flavobrunneum) - broiled and served over cactus leaves. Awesome. It was about as firm as salmon, but had a very different flavor. More mild, but the Mexican spices they used were excellent.
#57 - Commercial scallops (Pecten fumatus) - Sushi. Kind of rubbery, not a lot of flavor. Probably won't get them much, but I did eat them.
I also swallowed a bug the other day - probably a gnat. Does that count? It was kinda gross.
Current Mood: working

#55 - Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), as distinct from Coho Salmon or Sockeye Salmon. We stopped at a fish smoker / restaurant on the way up the coast this last weekend. I had Chinook Salmon fish & chips, Stacy had smoked Chinook Salmon on a salad. Both were quite good.
As a point of note, when choosing between swordfish fish & chips and Chinook Salmon fish & chips, Chinook Salmon won only because I already had swordfish on my list from the Greek place earlier. I'm still interested in going back for the swordfish, but a special trip would take something like 7 hours to get there. Not gonna happen.
I also went back and figured out what the other tuna I had was, and the store labels it "Mahi tuna." The problem is that while I can find Mahi-Mahi, which may or may not be a type of tuna, I can't get any more specific than that. Help?
