Have you ever eaten fish's head or fish's bones for your lunch or dinner?
Apparently fish's head or fish's bones have loads of nutrition, because Mwanza people eat them for their food almost every day !!!

Head, many times, bones I don't think so - don't they stick in your throat? HRH the queen mum was always in hospital having fishbones removed when she was still around.

Fish head cooked in curry is quite a common dish here in Southeast Asia.

I had Bombay Duck once, I didn't realise it was acyually fish until it came to the table. I took a bite out of it and spent the next twenty minutes picking out bits of bone. I didn't realise you were supposed to scrape it off the bone . . .

Never eaten a fish head though . . . ewwww!

My mom loved freshwater panfish (mostly sunfish) and would would fry the tails (separately) until very crispy. Not liking the taste of fish at all, I would eat the tails because they had little flavor, mainly because they are all bone.

-I often enjoy a good fish head. I shave all the hair off the top of the head itself first- with my electric razor- prior to cooking it. Hint: for quick removal of wax from fish ears: pour a little cod liver oil into the ear, allow the oil to seep down into canal., then hold fish close to your mouth and scream shrilly into ear. Wax will then erupt like a little, salty volcano.

See, there's just something wrong with all that!!!! I now have this horrible visual of little salty volcanoes erupting out of fish heads... Make the bad pictures go away!!!!!

- Sorry Isadora. Here is a new image to replace the ' bad ' one: a huge bowl of fragrant, steaming clam chowder ( New England style ) with a plate of crusty fresh smoking hot bread to go with it. You see, traditionally- the ' stock ' for clam chowder is made- fundamentally- from boiled fish- heads !

- Typical yogurt container label ingredients: ( one ) ' gelatin ' - what more need be said ?
