We were watching Masterchef The Professionals and this is one of the items they had on tonight's table for the 12 chefs to pick from.

I have never heard of it before:

a John Dory fish.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dory

That is one ugly fish.



Out of that whole ugly fish,

you get a tiny filet on the plate.



Maybe 8 oz?

Where's the rest of it?

a very tasty fish indeed and that is untrue  about "a tiny" fillet being all you get.
All you need is a good fisherman/fishmonger to prepare the flesh properly and you get a lot more "meat" of it.

I prefer fried catfish, shrimp cocktail and a nice boneless rib eye.

I don't want to see a head with eyes staring at me on any fish dishes served to me and I also don't want to deal with bones, fins, scales, shells on any seafood served to me.

There are only 4 bones I will happily deal with:

bones in pork ribs, bones in beef ribs, bone on a fried chicken drumstick and a T-bone.

I will eat a burger before I eat fish but not that one above. That looks like a McNasty's Big Mac.

The Fillets off a John Dory are bigger than you might think...............
Often called St Peter's fish since St Peter is alleged to be the origin of the distinctive dark 'thumbprint' (or spot) on its side......
It's a delicious fish with delicate white flesh and a firm, flaky texture......
Price here around $45.00 to $55.00per Kg.....
It might look a little strange but it's one of the best eating fish out there..............
Absolutely Gorgeous................

That's about $25 a lb, for fish?

Even filet mignon or live Maine lobster costs less than that.

this is what she made out of that and a couple of other big crabs:

a crumpet with crab meat and crab meat butter on it.

For me that seems to be a waste.

Years ago in Florida I had a fish & chip dinner, the fish was a local one off the Atlantic.Was the tastiest fish I ever ate, can't remember the name but when we got back to our condo rental we looked it up & the sight of it would scare a corpse out of its grave.Don't judge a book by it's cover.Have yet to eat a fish I did not enjoy.Some are just more tasty than others.

It's Masterchef The Professionals finals week.

I don't eat anything that stares back at me.

I had rainbow trout before but without the head, tail and fins.

A nice filet without any bones.
