Redneck fare

I hate to admit this but the fish head was excellent. It is served with curried green mangoes, limes over rice. It was actually better than restaurant fare. If you didn't know what it was you would eat seconds. Of course all of the couch surfers showed up because amongst my people the head of the sea catfish is the most prized item. The head is massive roughly eight pounds. I knew granny didn't make it as I looked at the girlfriend and knew who made it. Granny made sure she ate the stuff quickly.

Suddenly eating fish heads isn't so bad. Add this to the oddities of Guyanese life that never quite have an explanation.

Did the dish look like fish heads?

I can't eat anything that looks back at me!

No it is cut up and carried in a green mango lime curry. My girlfriend really did an excellent job and to think I toss that part.

It is a huge catfish head roughly seve pounds or so.
