I looked up my Groupon account to see that some of the deals I bought were expired. ): – (Unlike!)
I think I’ve been buying too much that I can’t keep up. So now, I promised myself I’m going to use all that I bought before buying new deals. First stop, Fisch Gruber. It is a fresh fish shop at the Naschmarkt, quite known for its freshness and high prices. Well, given that they sell fresh instead of frozen, it’s justifiable.
I got two deals worth 40€ each at the price of 19€ a deal..so that’s 38€ for a catch of 80! So off I go with Kuya O and Tita S. This is actually fulfilling my promise to Tita S. She never liked buying eventually eating frozen fish. I think it has to do with her growing up eating them really-really fresh from the sea. I was a bit forgiving as frozen is ok with me…or maybe because I really miss fish too!
Tuna, salmon, seabream, trout, octopus, calamari, sea urchin, giant lobsters, blue marlin, oysters, butterfish and a wide range of sea-fruits were there. We weren’t able to decide immediately what we’ll be having. The patient seller was friendly enough to let us decide…
Sidestory: seeing eel, catfish and other live fish, my C (older son) asked if we can have them as pets. lol. I don’t think our kois would be happy to have them…
Were there selections of milkfish, tilapia and mackarel scad I’d definitely get those, lol. Lacking those three, Salmon was obviously the first choice…there were fillet cuts too but we settled for steaks because it’s cheaper…I asked for two 1 kilos separated but she (seller) mistakenly weighed two 2 kilos each. 🙂 I didn’t complain nor did Tita S…the deal is, one should buy not less than the 40€ worth of deal so we had to add some more to exceed 80€. We got each a Goldbrasse which I have always heard from friends…turns out this is seabream or besugo but definitely bigger than the ones I used to have. (will post about it next)
I had opted of letting the 4€ go like give it as a thank you but they were adamant that I spend it 😀 so we got a piece of calamari (it was 8€ for 100g)…
At home, I made a simple dish for half of the steaks. I normally pair salmon with dill but this time rosemary won the which-herb-would-it-be battle. :)Click here for recipe.
yummm! salmon steak is just so rich. rosemary and salmon-pwede pala silang dalawa.:p
i almost bought frozen salmon at SM this evening but since i'm planning to cook it on Sunday, will buy it on Sat. na lang.:p

My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at http://www.eatingbangkok.com, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.
I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site http://www.mariekhan.com recently and was pretty impressed. I've added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: http://www.eatingbangkok.com/foodie-blogs/ and would also like to add you to my blogroll.
If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] eatingbangkok.com) I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!
As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn't well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.
Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I've subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.
P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:
I really love fish…Happy FF!
I'm scared of cooking fish but your recipe looked so delish and easy to do. I'll have to try this soon with my dad. But I'll tell him to buy his fish first because I have no idea if the fish is fresh or not.
wow! i like the fist pic. ang ganda ng counter nakaka enganyong mamili. LOOK at that salmon, yum yum
heres my share for the weekend
Ako rin,I don't mind paying additional price for fresh fish, I'm just tired of eating frozen one!
