I ordered these three days ago and when delivered I directly put them in the freezer of my fridge without really looking at them. If I am not mistaken they are what we call lady fish as my receipt says upon checking it. Now, the story is. Today, I didn't plan to have another meal as I thought I was already full enough but anyways suddenly after spending so much time on the computer I felt the need to cook something. So, I thought of the fish. I brought them all to the kitchen. Then, I peeped at them from the plastic bag. OMG! I was taken a back. I thought they were snakes. Their round shape really looked like snakes and so I suddenly wondered what if they mistakenly delivered snakes to me. I couldn't almost hold it as I was a bit scared. You can just imagine I was slowly approaching to hold them out of the plastic bag. Hahaha. Until now, it felt creepy holding them while removing the scales. I can't get over it. Lol! Just look! They look awful. This is a concrete example of expectation versus reality.

Ahaha. Yes. And if you look at the mouth you can even see the teeth that look like ready to bite anytime.

They're short compared to the snake.

Ahahaha yes. But the body shapes looks like one especially when you don't see them in full. Like I mean if only a part of it is what you see.

OMG, I would run away from them if I saw that in my house. How did they taste and how did you cook them?

Hahaha! I taste even awful either fried or in soup. Wrong cooking perhaps.

@Ecoy41 If I don't like the looks of something I will never eat it....

Uhm... would you have eaten a snake if that's what was delivered to you by mistake? I wouldn't eat snake but I also don't eat fish, either. Now, a crispy cooked kitten might make my mouth water, though. *grinning and teasing you*
