i was just about to make a fish stock with all the leftover bits and pieces of the gurnard i wasn't planning to eat plus
- lemon grass
- a red onion
- some lime leaves
- a piece of galangal
- an handful of sze chuan peppercorns
everything unceremoniously dropped in the pot from above.
then it dawned on me: even dead, beheaded and about to be boiled, the gurnard was still waaaay more expressive than a lot of people, including this guy here.
