Seafood Buffet: Scrod

 23 replies

C’mon in and see what’s cooking today! (Hint: This ain’t your father’s BBQ)

And what is “scrod”, some may ask? Well, while it’s often treated as an acronym such as “seamen’s catch, received on deck”, it dates back to well before acronyms were in common useage. According to Merriam-Webster it derives from a Cornish dialect of English, and it’s first known use in writing spelled it “scrawd” and was a food preparation process. These days it’s generally used to describe any fresh, young oceanic whitefish, and strictly speaking for marketing it’s a misleading term unless the species is specified alongside it.

And as you can clearly see, today’s selections are indeed fresh. What the future holds, nobody knows, neither where it comes nor where it goes, but at least with camp underway we’re getting more of the fresh stuff. All we can do from here is hope they manage to have a season and carry on. And as the final note, I’m still hoping someone around here not only cooks fish and such on a grill, from time to time is kind enough to snap a pic for me to use as the banner for this searies. 😉

complete accident from what I understand … too much stored in one area, and perhaps unsafe storage methods … they say they’re going to investigate, but how do they investigate “nothing” which is all that’s left

How do you post photos to the Comments? I mostly read articles, and don’t know all of the cool commenting features. I have a great pic of some fresh caught salmon over a campfire if you’re interested.

If it’s your own private photo, I think you have to post it to some photo sharing site and then you would paste the link in the comment.

If it’s already online, just right-click and “copy image address” and paste into a comment.

Some pics in facebook might not work, especially if it’s private.

Would work better to put on some image site like imgur or something.

has to be “online” … then just post the “image url” in a comment and voila, it appears when you post the comment

videos can only be embedded (showing the player frame) by a site editor (BRaG, Tony, myself and others) but if you pop in the video url (like youtube) eventually one of us will get around to a “fast edit embed” eventually sometimes usually on occasion

and welcome!

Veach on the Herd was really good. It might be the first time I heard Veach not give any credit to John Dorsey.

Had some freshly grilled halibut the last 2 weekends. I’m not a fish guy but it was pretty darn good. I did not take pictures.

At +/- $ 22 / Lb …Halibut has Become more of a Luxury purchase for me … ; (

( as a New Englander – Young Cod was what Scrod usually denoted … Hence My ( Non-PC ) Buddies & I used the term in asides as reference to young ladies … : )

God I love Homer, AK. Might be my retirement town when I get to that stage of my life….30+ years from now. Currently living in Anchorage though, so I get access to fresh Halibut often. I still have several pounds in my freezer from when my wife went fishing last summer.

My Father in Law owns a house in Homer, so he always brings back fresh halibut steaks.
