my goa restaurant reports won't go up on the blog for a few weeks but for starters here's a look at the thursday market in the village of assolna in south goa. most prominently featured is the fish market. and no, i don't know the names of most of the fish. if you do or if you know the names of likely relatives from elsewhere in the world, please write in.

Squid?!

 

So my question is this:  even though it doesn't appear to be super hot temperature wise, none of the fish appears to be kept on ice. Some stuff deteriorates rapidly: i.e. shrimp, crabs, etc.

 

What;'s the deal with that?

everything but the display stuff was in chilled water/ice, i think. the crabs and the smaller shrimp were alive. at any rate, it wouldn't have been possible for any of what i bought over the two visits---kingfish, white pomfret, mackerel, crab, two kinds of prawns, squid---to be any fresher. 

 

edit to add: you can see the ice in picture 14, for example.
