Hey /ck. So, I've decided I'm gonna make some seabass, served with basmati rice, langoustines, prawns, chiffonade of red cabbage and speck, white wine sauce, beetroot and broccoli.

Then I decided to challenge myself; I bought a giantass knife a while ago that I don't use for anything except carving meats because it's too clumsy. But fuck that! It was expensive! I'm going to use this 13-inch bowie knife to do all the prep for this dish, and see how it turns out. This might turn into a gore thread. Wish me luck!

Forgot to mention, I'm adding prawns and brown shrimp too. Goddamn this is fiddly.
>>
>>7331774
Yeah, in the OP pic it's shrimp, but I'm pretty sure these magnificent sonsabitches are langoustine. Couldn't fit them and the prawns in the original pic.

Huh, was I not supposed to use the heads? Always figured that was what was used, not like the shells would have much flavour. Oh well. Smells alright, I'll see how it tastes when it's done reducing.

Yeah, this knife is not the best for fine work.
>>
>>7331912

Of course you're supposed to use the heads. That guy is just squeamish.
>>
>>7331912
I think you are supposed to use the heads. You use the heads of fish for stock too so I don't see why it'd be different.

Having said that though, once I got the hang of it the shallots turned out reasonably thin.
>>
>>7331912
You're absolutely using the heads right, that guy's just being a baby. You could use the rest of the shells the same way- they do give a lot of flavor to a stock. Maybe not as much as heads, but still.

>>7331883
They're langoustines, that's what they look like.

Nothing wrong with Morrisons. They do reasonable food at decent prices. I got the crustaceans from my local fishmonger though, he's a pretty chill fella.

Starting off the red cabbage and mushrooms.

And here we go! Had it with a glass of cava, turned out pretty darn nice. The beetroot didn't mesh as well as I thought it might, will definitely give it a miss next time, but the rest was pretty solid.
>>
>>7332169
That look good Op, even with using a flunky knife it came out well. What kind of plate is that?
>>
>>7332190
It's a piece of slate. Used to be a thing in fancypants restaurants a few years back. I bought a few just cos I liked the look of them.

You felt compelled to come find me? I'm flattered. JSYK, not a single drop of sauce nor grain of rice was spilt. And you're kind of playing it fast and loose with the word 'rip' there.

I buy 5lb instead of 10lb just in case I get bored of a certain type of rice after 5lb's. (5kg is about 11 pounds)

Those are bay shrimp, not prawns.

Otherwise you're doing about 50x better than most people on this board. This board is depressing most of the time.

Is that a fucking bottle opener at the end of the blade? Surprisingly good thread considered the knife.

>>7334924
Yeah I know, couldn't fit the prawns or langoustine in the pic. Thanks though senpai.

Nah bruh it's just an oversized Bowie knife. Fucker weighs just over 2 pounds, it's a bitch to control. Kinda fun to use though.

op im begging you

Actually, 4 kinds of fish my brother. Well, seafood. And don't forget the cabbage and the beetroot.
>>
>>7331940
We wouldn't have all the best food we have today if not for fatties. The best chefs and culinary inventors were either fat or trained by fatties. I still respect a bit of chub on anyone who cooks alot or works in the industry, but obese people are gross. No sympathy for those stereotype USA monsters with blubber spilling over the sides of their scooters.
