I made the worst looking-worst tasting fish recipe tonight. I tried to pan fry an Amber Jack fillet that was way too thick and ought to be baked in the oven. the only thing that didn’t go wrong was that I didn’t burn it. Instead, the fillet was so thick that it was impossible to cook the center through all the way without the edges getting over cooked. So it was a bad mix of translucent fleshiness and dry fish flakes on every fork. Ewww. Luckily, it didn’t fill the apartment with the aroma of nastiness, and I didn’t set off the smoke detector. Two events that I’m more sensitive about, now that I have roomates to ridicule me.
