Eggs and fish

My food project is very much alive, even though it’s three weeks since my last update. The two next letters is E and F.

For the letter E, it was easy to pick a word. It’s not that much food that starts with E, so I had to go with eggs. I did that on my last food project too, but I was set on doing it differently this time. Egg is something I always keep in my fridge. I love eggs, in all forms: boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, fried eggs… Egg is also very important in baking, which I loved to do. So it’s very important to have eggs in the fridge.

Originally my plan was to photograph some fruit for the letter F, but when I went to this big supermarket (which has just about everything you can wish for and then some more) last saturday and bought mackerel, I knew that for letter F I had to shoot fish.

Mackerel is the best fish ever. It is so delicious, my mouth starts to water just by thinking of it. The supermarket sold whole fishes and not fillets. I was fine with that, because I’m familiar with gutting fish. It’s something I’ve done before and it’s pretty easy to do, at least if it’s mackerel. You keep the skin on, so you just have to chop off the head, cut it in two, get the stomach etc out and chop off the tail and gills. Oh and of course try to get rid of as many bones as possible. Getting a tiny fish bone stuck in your throat is something I can’t recommend. Been there, done that!

After getting the bones out, the next thing you do is to cover the fish in a flour-mix containing flour, salt and pepper. When that is done, you’re ready to fry it in the pan.

Here are some photos from my sunday dinner –  from getting the fish out of the fridge to a meal ready to eat. Be prepared for chopped of fish head and blood ;)

Doesn’t it look tasty? I sure think so.

Next letters up is G and H. I’ve written down some idea of what to shoot, but I might change my mind until I decide to start on those letters. I’ll have two weeks off next week, so I have lots of time to shoot.
