I  showed her how to just gently separate the flesh from the cartilage.    So simple, so delicious.  

Yeah, 'cause it's a ray, not a "regular" fish. I've been eating (and for somewhat less time, making) skate for so long that I'm surprised when anyone is unfamiliar with it. I remember reading an Amanda Hesser NYT review - and I use that term loosely - of a restaurant in Chelsea, in which she marveled at this new-to-her fish, and I was like, they're letting someone who's never had skate write restaurant reviews?

I'll start the ball rolling with the fingerling potatoes I bought at Tompkins Square yesterday. I am very bad at remembering the names of stalls, but there are only half a dozen or so here (open Sund

They make Hooligan (full stop) which some might call stinky. And mean that as a compliment.

Well, we need a thread for the rest of the entire world outside NYC, so here ya go.   What did you get at your farmers market? What did you get in your CSA box? Either will do: post it here!

CHERRIES!  Really good ones too.  I also saw stone fruit from the Central Valley, but I think I'm going to wait a month or so.

The strawberries are in full fruit, but since they're coming up in the backyard I'm going to save my $$.

I have this recollection that skate was "introduced" to New York by a restaurant called Rose Hill, the same way Tom Valenti "introduced" New York to braised lamb shank at Alison on Dominick -- and at about the same time, as I recall.

Seriously?    That seems awfully late to me.

I'm not sure about skate but I know winter flounder is highly restricted and I assume the population dynamics (slow growing fish, common bycatch of scallops) would be the same.

From our Maine fish guys:

Quote

Based on federal fisheries landings data, the New England region harvested just 15% of sustainable quotas in 2021. That bears repeating: Our region harvested just 15% of its regulated groundfish quotas, which includes haddock, pollock, flounder, hake, cod, and more...

... last year, the Portland Fish Exchange auction saw just 4% of the volume it sold in 2003.

 

I think you can paraphrase - there is no longer a fishing industry in New England.
