I roasted them in the basket for my Weber charcoal grill rotisserie, using pecan 1/2 splits for fire.

What a great idea. The Hatch chili has such a great flavor. I mixed them with poblanos for my chili. I will definitely make this a yearly tradition.

I am sure I have eaten Mirugai Nigiri, as I think I have had just about every type of fish sushi there is, but the flavor doesn't stand out in my mind as extraordinarily unique like uni. Have you eaten Fugu? I have, but only in Japan.

Never been to Japan and don't think I'd trust anyone outside of Japan to prepare fugu. Most of the sushi places around here are terrible, so we usually make it at home.

I had some eggs laid by Andean Blue chickens. They have so much flavor. I went to buy more a few weeks later but the supermarket had stopped carrying them - the worker told me people would "not buy blue colored eggs" and they just sat on the shelf.


I guess I'll have to start keeping chickens myself.

I love Uni too, especially when its buttery. A friend of mine thinks it tastes like licking a rock that's been sitting on the beach in the sun for an hour after the tide receded.


Geoduck is fine as sashimi - but perplexing: the pronunciation having the e and the o exactly reversed! I wonder how that came about.

Probably a bastardized version of the native American word for it.

Nichols Farms Califirnia Pistachios. These are shelled and roasted. They are kind of pricey, but they are quite good.
