Hillbilly Sashimi

Looks yummy, right? Not so fast. 

Can you spot what’s wrong with this picture?

No, it’s not the grotesque silverwear. Whoever prepared this recipe for “Elegantly Stuffed Fish” was so preoccupied with garnishing it perfectly that they forgot to actually cook it. It is also clearly NOT the 3 – 4 lb fish the recipe calls for. 

Sure, it looks nice for the photograph, but the first person who attempts to stick it with a fork better hold that sucker down before it flops off the table and across the floor trying to find the creek it came from, because it's so fresh and raw it's holding its breath and trying not to blink.
