Fresh fish, caught to order

Went to a floating restaurant today. It wasn’t actually floating, it was at the end of a long pier in the water. Very nice open air restaurant. The menu was heavy on seafood, rice and noodles. after taking our order the waitress went over to a guy sitting at the entrance to the restaurant, on the walkway between it and the pier. She reads from the menu and begins pointing over the side of the pier. This little guy then begins fishing around with he net in the water, brings up some fish, and then picks them out of the net and drops them in a basket. The waitress then brings the newly filled basket to us and asked if these looked Ok.

All in all a pretty cool deal. Now I know that I posted once before about ordering seafood outside of the US, but when you’re hungry you’re hungry. Even still, a grouper is a pretty ugly fish when it’s alive. It doesn’t get any prettier when it’s cooked.
