    Well yeah...pretty much any fish is edible. But tastes vary...I don't care for mackerel even though some swear it's the best.

    Little red snapper are the best. Mangrove snapper are great as they never turn into big snapper. I love those little guys. They are my kind of panfish! I just oil and grill them in their skins if I don't snack on them raw. And if you get a big snapper, the meat just in front of the tail is what you want for sushi, cook up the rest some other way.

    Yellowtail snapper and snook are really good. But my personal favorites are salmon and red snapper for sashimi, both of those plus eel and tuna for sushi.

    And hi, SC! [​IMG]

    I'm not a huge fan of eel. It's ok, but not my favorite. I like salmon ok, but nothing beats red tuna for me

    It took a while before I developed a liking for eel, but that smoky taste and the eel sauce won me over.

    Avocado on sushi is another of my favorites. I'm sure it's not at all traditional but I love the taste and texture along with the rest.

    I wish I had my phone with me Sunday afternoon. The blue cockerel had backed the splash into a corner until he submitted. The blue must have given him a good talking to, because he wouldn't move [​IMG]
    I thought something was wrong with him at first, so I walked into the pen and picked him up. He didn't even try to run away. I got to hold him, feel his size, and really look at him up close. He really is a beautiful bird. The splash pattern just gets prettier as he gets older, and his muff and beard are just unbelievable. I'm ready for him to start making babies [​IMG]

    I'm with you there. Avocado is a must. I'm pretty fond of cream cheese, too

    Just think of them as long smooth dogs with no legs
