    No I wanted to experience the fish and nowt else as I have never had it before. So simply fried in extra virgin with salt and pepper.

    Unfortunately it tries to kill you. It is seriously hard to eat. Full of 1.5 cm bones and filleting would be close to impossible as bones stick out along the plane of a fillet.

    I got a bone stuck in my throat and resisted the temptation to gag or cough. Got it down with the fried new potato.

    You could not serve it to anyone, really, at a social event. You have to use fingers.

    Flip side is it was bloody lovely with a bit of lemon juice. Like a cross between cod and skate in terms of texture.

    Doesn't look great cooked, either. A veritable British oddball of a fish!

    Had a nice piece of fresh cod, pan fried in a small amount of olive oil, with a small amount of salt, pepper, garlic, ginger and paprika. Served it with mash and mixed veg. Was v nice, enough left over for tomorrow. Thankfully, no bones.

    Looks good, Justers - like yer spuds! But I can also see what you mean by the bones

    Probably one you'd need to get the tweezers out and pluck before cooking... I suspect too much of a ball-ache to buy again?

    Looks lovely, so much easier to eat bony fish with your fingers.

    The bones and inability to fillet is why it isn't popular I guess as it does taste good. Fish curry with it would have been inedible in retrospect.

    Hm I doubt I'll see it again but I might go for it depending on mood. Definitely no rush though

    Might be better baked. Turning it over in the pan just ruffles up the bones!

    You're not wrong, Jim

    Wonder if that was the same sort of fish that choked the queen mother? Love the idea of a roastie solving the choking on a bone eeh it made me laugh.

    **I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    **Hate makes you impotent, Love makes you crazy. Somewhere in the middle you can survive.**

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    What made me smile is I put the carcasses in the bin sack and left the sack outside the back door. My cat carved a whole in the sack with extreme precision, and lifted the carcasses out. I found two sets of bones fully stripped of any flesh.

    The bones don't seem to have caused him any concern. Seasoned pro, obviously
