Weird-Looking Fish

I saw this strange-looking fish at Marukai.


The label says Red Gurnard, and it was $9.99 a pound!

It's called Houbou in Japanese, and according to Shizuoka Gourmet it can be eaten raw, in soup, simmered or steamed.

Um, I don't know, it doesn't look normal. It looks too scary to eat!

Looks prehistoric to me, Kat!

Totally, V!!

No, I didn't, Les. I wonder too.

Susan, it's one of those things where I wait until somebody else tries first.
