    Hello all,
    Am I the only person in the world who has eaten Pomfret and loves it?
    It is a fish I ate in Goa- very popular there. Unfortunately, it isn't
    available here (UK). That's probably why no-one seems to have heard of
    it.

    Anyone out there enjoy a pomfret or two?

    We've had it at a Thai restaurant in SoCal. It was a featured item on
    the menu, and delicious. That would be a long drive for dinner, but
    maybe your Thai restaurants in the U.K. have it, too.

    There are, I think, different varieties of pomfret. While in South Asia,
    have seen differentiation in size, as well as colour in the markets.

    Here in the East Asian markets on the West Coast of the US, I usually
    get the white/silver kinds in various sizes. There are labelled pomfrets
    in a few places, otherwise referred to as pompanos.

    Very nice. You can find frozen pomfret in Asian foodstores here.

    Hi Cyndi!
    It's great to finally find someone who gets as excited about seafood as
    I do! Your message made my mouth water- shrimps and crabs with nothing
    else sounds fine to me- why try to dress up a meal that is already full
    of beautiful, natural flavours? Good for you!

    I noticed that the pomfrets also go by the name Pompano (sp?).. I think I
    have had that many, many years ago. If I did, I'm willing to bet I loved
    it! I get excited about a lot of different foods. So far, the only thing
    that I've had and didn't like (Okay - detest beyond hate!! LOL) was liver..
    but then again - not totally because I can eat liverwurst sandwiches.
    <shrug> Go figure.

    DH husband teased me today about little Nathan and I not having any seafood
    leftovers... :)
