I was not disappointed when I got there. Since T&T is an Asian supermarket, they carry a whole load of things that are not usually found here. That includes fish. I found a bag with three frozen Moonfish from Vietnam for $3.99 and their skin was shiny and silvery, almost like a silver foil had been gilded onto the fish. That would make a really nice looking swimsuit. Plus, the shape of the fish is so tall and disk-like that it looks like each half of it could become a breast cup.
So yeah, I bought the Moonfish. Here they are defrosting in a bowl.
They smell a lot like sardines and I guess their skin is a lot like a sardine too. They're like giant disk-shaped sardines.
So, I basically filleted them and then used a shell to scrape off all the meat from the skin.
Unfortunately, it looks like the shininess kind of just rubs off when I move it around enough so maybe Moonfish won't be so good after all. At least this time I removed pretty much all the meat and it smells much less fishy. My kitchen on the other hand smells like a fishmonger's shop.
I guess we'll just see what we have when it comes out of the piss.
