From The Road – Eating A Salmon Head



By David Ponce

This may seem terribly off topic, but there’s a bit of a link to the OhGizmo! ethos here. Hear me out. Part of the reason I started the site was that new things have always fascinated me. Sure, most of the new things I’ve always been interested in were gadgets; innovation (in gadgets and tech) quickly became a focus for the site as a result. But this fascination with new stuff is still a part of me. And sometimes, it backfires, as can be seen above.

See, this is why, when sitting comfortably at a new sushi joint in town, I decided to order the most obscure sounding thing on the menu, something I’d never had: “Fried salmon head with some sort of spice combo I can’t remember”. Sounded nice. Sure. Except that in my head, for a moment, a salmon fish was the size of a goldfish, and the head I was expecting to get was no larger than maybe a thumb. Good one. This is what showed up a few minutes later. This.

But I ate it. Sure. I picked at it. But eventually ate it. Fun stuff.

I’d love to hear your culinary horror stories.

    you should stick to your kraft dinner, pop tarts, and wonderbread. If you want to go Ethnic, just add Tobasco.

    In high school I had a teacher that went all over the world in the military. He ate two ethnic dishes wherever he went, and his map looked like he had taken a push pin machine gun to it. Flamingo tongues and eyeballs in Egypt. Somewhere in africa he had monkey nuts boiled in human spit. I would have stopped that tradition there…
