Raw Fish

Post by Pinky »

I am a Barbeque God. I say this in all modesty.

Last Saturday I entered the Los Angeles County Fair Barbeque Contest and won Grand Champion - Best of Show.

"What did Pinky cook?” you ask.

Wait......wait...... this year my BBQ Bitch* and I served..... wait.... wait..... drum roll.....Raw Fish....ba dum bump.

Yes, we served, at a barbeque contest no less, seared Albacore. As I said, we won Best of Show. The meal we served was Japanese. There was the Seared Albacore, bbq'd Shiitake Mushrooms with a Soy and Tangerine glaze, Teriyaki Broiled Rice Balls, and bbq'd Clams with butter, soy and green onion. The table was dressed with a black tablecloth. The dinnerware was black stoneware. The clams were served on a mount of kosher salt on square, black stoneware. A black and white Japanese style lantern and a couple of black river stones served as a centerpiece. It was very Zen. Reminiscent of the famed Buddhist rock garden in Japan. The mood was calm and peaceful; the food, elegant.

All this was well and good. But I think what put us over the top was the beverage we served. Sake, of course. But, no ordinary Sake. We served home made Sake that I had brewed months before, specifically for this event. The the judges were duly impressed.

The other contestants were not the least it impressed. More than one expressed dismay at losing a BBQ contsest to Raw Fish! Naturally, my bitch and I are delighted. We had no expectation of winning. We entered with Raw Fish thinking we might win some also-ran ribbon. Our friends and familly told us we were crazy if we thought we could do anything but fail. In the face of dire predictions we did more than good, we did best. We are Barbaque Gods. Feel free to genuflect.

What fun!

raw fish is a bit tough when sitting along side the subject of good taste.

Mmmmmmm...Sashimi and sake. Fuck this country's lack of a coastline and impoverished Japanese people!

Hmmm... barbeque.
Truly a lost institutioun,
But perhaps your mixing oil & vinegar??
I say stick with tradition,
A pork butt thats been smoking for 14 hours in pecan
Has the same complexities as seared Ahi Tuna.
I do respect creativity,
But it bothers me when dishes like you mentioned win traditional bbq competitions, although from what I sounds like, you merited some kind of recognition.

sorry.
im drunk, its 10oclokc.
