I want to tip my hat to my friend Abu Farris of Progressive Islam. Apparently according to Islamic religious authority mermaids are suitable for eating. Personally I think to do so without cocktail sauce is barbaric. Of course Westerners who are not subject to Islamic dietary restrictions will have to deduce the appropriate type of wine to use when eating mermaids. Of course if one follows the advice of our good friend and resident philosopher Mr. B just serve it with beer.
Then again if you cant hit it with a Buick it probably is not worth cooking anyway.
