I's not Japanese chiles but tonight was barbacoa, red chili sauce on goat slow simmered until the meat falls from the bone. Served with Spanish rice and tortillas.


OK, that's not completely true
It is barbacoa, but it's a mixture of beef & pork and the skull is ceramic.


Here's the story. A few years back, my brother took his family down to Michoacan, Mexico to visit his wife's mother. His daughter, who was about 17 at the time, screamed when she opened the oven and saw a goat head looking out at her. My brother, who is quite the jokester, requested a ceramic goat skull so we prank her with it. We put the ceramic skull in with the meat and waited for her to discover it. It did shock her for a minute but she is older and wiser now, she wasn't fooled for long But everyone had a good laugh and the barbacoa was delicious

Speaking of goat...I lived in Austin for six years many years ago. There was a restaurant outside of Austin named johnson's trading post and goat was on the menu. It was great. However the best part was their carry out. You could order half a barbecued goat and you would get the whole half..not cut up into pieces. We would take it home and eat it off the bone. We could finish it in a couple of days. We would then put the whole skeleton out by the trash can and watch people's reaction when they walked by. It was a hoot. Those were the days.

Maybe put some soft boiled eggs in the sockets, with eyes painted on...

Yellow matter custard - dripping from a dead goats eye...

Not quite the full quote , so I think I'll get away with it...

The skull is GROSS! Not having that at my house. Now fish heads, that's a different story!

These little bastards have big ass teeth to deal with (and some big heads).



You kill'em and skin'em and cook their meat slow in lime juice - kinda like an old western torture scene. The result, however, is quite edible.

The above squid I cooked a while ago - but as I'm not in the habit of documenting my dinner -
was photographed specifically for this thread, just never got around to posting it before.




The wife returned home unwell from a short vacation but is now much better and will no doubt
resume command of the galley - and I won't have occasion to post here much.

Tonight was the first time in a few days she could stomach anything savoury.



Salmon, garlic baked spuds, broccolini -

All kinds of good stuff here!
Glad I could amuse you with the goat head
DC, California Sheephead? Nice looking ceviche.
Komohana, very interesting. Nice looking squids, you catch them? If so, how? I'm not a big seafood fan but those stuffed squids are a great presentation. I haven't seen any broccolini in a while. I'm curious what kind of chorizo you get in Oz? Is it a solid (sliceable) sausage like Spanish or Portuguese chorizo? Or does it crumble when you cook it like Mexican chorizo?

hey Mike,

Yes, I caught the squid, or at least some - most ..

I think with one of my brothers on that particular day..

Very easy to catch - I/we use these hand line jigs..





Always a good laugh if there are ladies on-board, a well aimed squid can squirt a LOT of ink.


The chorizo is the hard Spanish type - but one of our local grocers sells the butt ends of salami, pepperoni, etc. cheap -
these work equally well, if not better.


By the way, the larger island in my photograph above is named after an American whaling vessel from the days of sail.
They were fishing - poaching - and were run aground in a squall. There being no settlement in those days,
the poor buggers were forced to walk all the way to Fremantle - but as I understand it, no lives were lost.


Very good fishing in this region - the squid are an added bonus to while away a few hours.

Not very visually appealing - all the same color - but it was tasty!
Crispy Orange.... Cauliflower! WHAAAAA???? Special request from our resident vegetarian - battered, fried, and coated in orange sauce. Half of the fried rice was vegetarian but mine had Linguiça (Portuguese Choriso), a man has to have SOME meat!

OK Hilda, this is more green than beige LOL Mongolian BBQ which, ironically, isn't Mongolian or BBQ. Scallops, chicken, and pork with all the veggies and sauces to choose from
