I also go for the fresh Wasabi with my sushi.
I have to take exception to one thing, T4, Asahi beer... What about all the excellent beers made right here at home by our brothers and sisters? There are better beers made in the USA than anywhere in the world! Buy American - Employ Americans!
I love texas pete on fried catfish. That's like peanut butter and jelly. Flathead catfish only, I don't eat the other kinds of cats. I saw this kind of hot sauce at bass pro shops and would've bought it if it wasn't so expensive, this is what it was called, no kidding:
"Ass-Kicking hot sauce"
LOL, it had a picture of a donkey on the front, and it's suppose to be really hot. You ever try that?
Yuengling is a great choice! They bought the old Stroh's brewery in Tampa a number of years ago and make it here and in PA. "America's oldest brewery!" Yum!
Out here, we even make Ceviche. That's when you take your favorite delicate fillets and drown them in pure lemon juice for a couple of hours. The acidity cooks the fish. It's kind of like a Mexican version of Sushi only cooked.
Now you got me started.
Per 1lb fish fillets soaked in lemon, add:
1/4 cup chopped onion
4 sprigs of cilantro (finely minced)
1/2 medium tomatoe (finely diced)
1/2 green chile pepper (Serrano or Jalapeno) (More if desired)
After fish has soaked for 2hrs, mix remaining ingredients in and stir until thoroughly mixed.
Serve on Crackers, Tostadas or Melba Toast. This recipe also works well on the Garlic Trisquit Crackers. Yummmmmmmy!
****Forgot the side dish******
Must be accompanied with a nice Saporro, Asahi or Kirin Beer.
My question is this:
Can you use any type of flakey-fleshed fish for the Ceviche? I actually saw that made on a TV show on Saltwater sunday. LOL It was the one that they are in the big yaucht, travelling around the worlds oceans fishing, it was the gormet galley portion of the show. I believe they used a Mutton Snapper for it on the show. It looked really tastey.
I think he always had a swig of cheri and a lit match for a bit of flash...
all this talk of fish and chips and beer.... you guys gone and dun it, I had to go out and pick up me a case of stroh's. do guys realize the last time I bought a case of stroh's? I will tell ya, the last time I bought a case of stroh's was the last time the tigers won the world series.
time to dust off the worms and head out to the fishing hole to pick up me a batch of fritters.
another item missed on the list is cheyann pepper. I always add a dash of that and some times a dash of onion salt. sure makes them fritter taist like candy. hard to beleive that pepper would make fish taist sweet. but that is the way them gill are...serve them up that way and the only thing a man needs is a loving gal to fill the platter again and bring ya another beer.... and a kid to ajust the antini so we can see the bird watching airplanes fly over pitchers mound.
