Escalator Fish

At Keegan's, it took me a gazillion years to decide what to eat. Everything sounded SOOO good. I finally decided on the Swordfish with black beans and rice. Of course they were out of swordfish and were substituting a fish i'd never heard of called escolar. The only way i could remember it's name was to call it escalator fish. I thought, 'what the hell' and decided to try something new.

It was De-LISH-shus!! I was so sad when i finished it because i just wanted more. So buttery and moist and yummy!

Barry looked it up when we got home and wouldn't you know that this dang fish is banned in like 4+ countries for being 'toxic'. There's one report of a woman dying, but that was undetermined. Perfect. I finally find something that tastes sooo bad for me but is virtually fat free and great for you. Well, except that possible toxicity that can cause discomfort that "may include oily orange diarrhea, discharge, or leakage from the rectum that may smell of mineral oil."
