Pompano

Last Sunday, we went to Whole Foods Market to buy fresh fish. I was not disappointed as there were plenty of fish to choose from.

I bought fresh whole pompano fish.


When I got home, I made fried fish for dinner. Paired with tomato/onion salad my dinner was so good that I felt like I was in heaven (lol). I love eating fish but sometimes, whole fish is just so expensive. The pompano costs me more than I would love to pay... but it was so good that I forgot the price that I paid for it.

Pompanos are marine fishes in the Trachinotus genus of the Carangidae family (better known as "jacks"). Pompano may also refer to various other, similarly shaped members of Carangidae, or the order Perciformes. Their appearance is deep bodied and mackerel-like, typically silver colored and toothless with a forked tail and narrow base. There are twenty described species and most are valued as seafood. Some species are considered prize delicacies and game fish.
