What about cheese AND fish?
This is not the year to think about what we don’t have.
It is the year we should be grateful for what we do have.

Well the experts say it's a no-no, but I don't agree. And even they sanction it occasionally.

Cheese. And laxatives. Cheese does stop me up.

I buy fresh fish about once a week, you can't beat it. I love cooking fish as you can do so many things with it.
I love a good cheese too but it's not essential for me and I can go weeks without buying some. I suspect most people who voted cheese don't know how to cook fish well.

I do, and in a microwave is the best and easiest way I find.

I have one of those floppy doored plastic microwave cookers and in it I'll throw a salmon steak and some thinly sliced onion, green pepper, potato, carrot and a couple of cherry tomatoes, then add a splash of soy sauce and lemon. Nuke the whole thing for for seven or eight minutes and ding! I have a gourmet meal. :D

The words "nuke" and "microwave" rather support my point! :lol:

I've never had cheese I didn't enjoy, and the same goes for fish (unless it was bungled in the cooking process). Fish is probably my favorite protein. Still, both are luxuries to me and my daily life wouldn't be particularly different without either.

It is different for US posters because of the hugeness of the country. I would guess for many fresh sea fish is just not available, whereas in the UK even if you live in the middle of the country you are only ever a couple of hours away from the coast.

That's true. It depends where one lives. I'm close to the gulf coast, so it's not an issue for me. But there's also all manner of freshwater fish available.

Why is it a luxury then? Is it especially expensive?

I live in a vegetarian household, and I choose not to cook meat for myself. It is generally pretty expensive in nice restaurants where it will be cooked properly.

Fish: good. Cheese: good.

I don't eat a great deal of either, but i don't think i'd like to give either up.

When I was in Italy with some friends one of them who has family in Milan said that they never ate cheese and fish together so it was a on going joke when we were in restaurants ordering got bring up that up, usually with the wagging index finger demonstration ala Seinfeld. My friend cleared it up later and admitted that it wasn't true but there aren't many dishes where both are sharing the same plate or bowl.

For the record, the two are probably my favorite sources of protein. Although some types of fish will have a strong fishy odor like mackerel and other cold water fish high in oils but the rest of them should smell very clean and decidedly not very fishy. When I buy fish from the fish mongrel at the farmer's market, he has the individual pieces in a ziplock bag which he then puts in another larger ziplock bag with lots of crushed ice which helps keep the fish very cold until you get home. I put that bag in a cooler that has those "blue ice" thingies in it to further protect it, especially in the warmer months and then keep the fish in the fridge still on the ice until dinner time. I almost never cook the fish the following day. It is a lot more perishable than other meats so if I can't cook it the same day, I don't buy it. Frozen fish will get you fresher fish at a convenience but freezing it changes the texture so I prefer to not eat fish that has been frozen although if you cook frozen fish in a liquid it is less noticeable.

So no one here has ever been to Maine to try their world famous cheese fish?
