World seems so serious these days.


Who else hates lemon taste or juice on their fish? Seems always that one guy who takes his week old fillet and tries to cover up the nasty with it. One person making a bad name for the rest of us
:imdumb:

Don’t get me wrong; love me some rock fish ceviche with lemon, lime, and orange juices.

Also been known to throw down some lemon or lime zest on some fresh tuna poke; or the occasional finger lime on some toro sushi if I can find finger lime.

I invite anyone to throw out their favorite fish dish that involves some lemon. Please change my mind and stomach :urno1:

Ceviche: cook with lemon first, then after removing excess and adding pico de Gallo veggies, add pineapple juice, chopped mint, and pear cubes to taste.

What ? trying to hide the taste of old fish with lemon is wrong but lemon used on fish&chips with some malt vinegar and tartar or Swordfish with lemon and butter is very tasty.

Had some fried shrimps this weekend. Squeezed a lemon over top, and dipped in spicy cocktail sauce. So dang good!!! Even better with fired Calamari or clam strips.

Sold my Parker. You can find me on the Red Rooster.
I love rockfish and yellowtail lightly sautéed with a picate sauce of butter, shallots, capers, white wine, parsley -- and lemon. Absolutely fantastic.

Love lemon on fish my neighbors tree really produces, she says help your self :shake: I'm like thanks but no thanks to much 😼 :shithappens: under the tree for me. I call them cat shit lemons and laugh my ass off every time someone is picking them to take home. They just look in the tree picking away not realizing they are stepping on it all 😂 it's so bad. It's like a Tootsie Roll Factory 🏭 so gross . cheers :720icon:

We did wear masks in the car and it was funny. My wife did not want the Corona Virus as I tested positive for so yes that's me 😂 . she is a cancer survivor 2x so you don't always know the whole story when you see that person in the car.
As far as science I chose band and have been rocking the drums ever since.

Acids neutralize amines. Lemon, limes, oranges, tomato and vinegar are acidic and complement fish very well.

Amines are basic compounds with strong odors. The odor of amines is often described as "fishy" since the odor of raw fish comes from the amines contained. Sometimes even "foul smelling" is an understatement, and two of the amines produced in decaying flesh have suggestive names (cadaverine and putresine).

Blasphemy!!!!
Yes, hugely delicious blasphemy!

Try adding raisins to every 3rd meatball in your albondigas, and chopped camote in the soup!

That sounds strangely tasty to me!
It may well be but it's some sort of fish salad which he can name as he pleases not Ceviche.

Ceviche is a preparation of raw fish and IMO even using lemons rather than limes is a bit of creative license.

Lemon on fish has historically been a way to make bad fish palatable.

Now it's just in the water that people think lemon and fish pair well,

if you enjoy it fine.......none of my business but to me lemon=bad fish.
