Exploiting a member of the slimehead family

I almost feel guilty about this meal. Although we kept the Catholics from going to hell on a meat rap, it was done by exploiting a member of the slimehead family. At least that was what I was led to believe by the Wikipedia entry for Orange Roughy. How was I to know that by purchasing a package of frozen fish at Costlyco I’d have to worry about Greenpeace coming after me. Oh well, they can get in line behind PETA.

You have to admit I treated the fish nice; it was placed on a bed of sliced onions, sprinkled with salt, pepper, and some thyme, then covered with lemon slices before it made it onto Bubba Ho-Keg. It was joined on the grill with some sliced carrots, and then hidden behind everything else for the plate picture.

That green and red stuff in the front was Roma tomatoes and avocado chunks bathed in lemon juice, EVOO, and some red raspberry vinegar. And it was the surprise hit of the meal, at least as far as I was concerned. And it wasn’t surprising that the Orange Roughy is exploited; I guess that’s what happens when you are so tasty…
