Sky Full of Bacon Presents Roly Poly Fish Eyeballs

In what I can comfortably say is the grossest Key Ingredient yet, Cary Taylor of The Southern uses fish eyeballs in a recipe for an oyster stew, and demonstrates a few finer points of butchering your own fish.

Cary had a lot of interesting things to say, not all of which could go into the video, so be sure to read the article which fills in a lot of details as well. (See, there are two parts to these, made by two different people in collaboration. Freaky, I know. Anyway, if you’re wondering WTF this recurring part of these announcements is about, and you won’t be the first by any means, email me for details.)

    I love sorghum syrup.

    That was a really interesting technique, but mostly that was a disgusting installment. I need to eat at the Southern now. Maybe this weekend for my birthday.

    Or go eat at Hot Chocolate and you can order what Mindy Segal made with sorghum syrup (email me for details if you actually need them, I don’t want to give it away in public).

    I’ve eaten eyeball tacos, so I’ve had more than my share of ocular entrees, but when he was squeezing the eyes into the pan, I had to turn away. Gruesome. Would I eat that dish? Probably.

  4. Michael Gebert Says:

    As nasty-looking as the black goo is, the dish tasted mostly like seafood and coconut milk. I looked at the eyeball as just another source of gelatin in a dish, no grosser than a foot (admittedly, not something fish have).
