Fish: The Other Vegetable

March 21, 2008

The sun rises on yet another Good Friday, the day marked by many Christian sects as the day Jesus Christ died for our sins so that we may eat fish.

I know I may have just lost some of you, but if you’re from the Caribbean, you may not be so confused. It is customary that on this day the eating of meat is not done. Enter Fish, the other vegetable, because I don’t understand why people separate fish from meat. Last time I checked fish are very much alive, given that they you know, swim, eat, procreate and die.

Also, like any other meat, they were hunted down, stricken in their prime and served up in a variety of dishes with an array of garnishes.

But beyond just that is the fact that many ‘vegetarians’ eat fish. Call me crazy but that just makes NO sense. Anyway, I have to go read up on some Mahi Mahi recipes… this day shall be long.
