Where there’s fish…there’s…(?)

Golden pomfret DFM

I had veggies on the brain today, and I happily wandered the aisles of Ye Olde (Not) Farmers Market (all-in-one store) until I gathered a fine selection of plant foods for stir-fry-ish-ness. Plus some other goodies for my fave-o-rite hummus, the kind with pine nuts and mint.

En route from the veggies to the Korean hot-food counter (I looked and bought nothing, but I lingered over the soy-saturated hard-boiled eggs, for their exoticism), I saw these leetle fishies, labeled “golden pomfret.” I didn’t know there was such a thing.

’Course, I dunno much about feesh.

Googling suggests that “golden pomfret” is a fairly newly named (late 1980s) species from down-under waters, a bramid species. Another new word. Ummmm. Okay, I’ve googled more, and I’ll stick with: here’s a fish photo, and, no, I didn’t Photoshop the color one bit.
