Someone wise once told me, if everyone in the world put their problems into a hat, you would be glad to pull out your own.
I was pining for flounder, but at the Chinese market, flounder are held in high regard and the price reflects this. Snapper is cheap at the Chinese supermarket.
At the regular supermarket, the pricing is the other way around. Snapper is expensive whereas flounder is cheap. Isn’t it funny?
I had to settle for snapper.
A little bit of coconut cream, chopped garlic, spring onion, green curry paste and plenty of salt and pepper. Wrapped these fish in paper and baked for 30 minutes.
It wasn’t so bad.
Tip: Buy flounder at the regular supermarket and snapper at the Chinese supermarket.
Where do you buy cheap snapper?! And are the fillets cheaper than normal or only if you buy a whole one????
Da Hua (the old Silverbell) on Dominion Rd have whole snapper. I think it was $12kg this week. I’m sure they’d fillet if for you if you battered your eyelashes and flashed your pretty eyes at them Laurel!
