Wow Placenta, I was just wondering about that. Most of the animals I get are boys. I saw a horse placenta. Didn't consider eating it back then, but I remember marveling its beauty in the morning sunlight.
When I get an interesting fish tid-bit from the market I'll post it here.

Each deed to another deed.

Yeah, that's one reason why I go by what tastes the best, basically using the Instincto approach, rather than what the label says. It just so happens that the fish labeled "sashimi grade" tastes the best to me, but the label means nothing to me. My local market actually has the best quality food I've ever encountered anywhere on the East coast of the USA. They have very high standards. Unfortunately, they also have high prices. LOL

I've had similar experiences on my end, the 'sashimi' grade has happened to taste the best and incidentally be the freshest as well.  Some of the best tasting fish I have ever had has been sashimi toro- fatty tuna. It's ridiculously expensive though. Have you ever tried sea urchin? Talk about a strange consistency and I've had my fare share of organs.. It was actually pretty good.

No, I 've never tried sea urchin, and every time I go to the local Asian restaurant I ask if they have sashimi toro, but they haven't had it yet, despite it being on the menu. Next time I'll ask them if they have it during a specific season, as you've reinvigorated my curiosity.

Real toro is very expensive, and tastes incredible.  I've paid $16 for two pieces before, but it was worth it. Oh my goodness. heh.

Fresh sea urchin is absolutely divine.  It's not like toro, but I love it. Sea urchin is one of those few raw foods that does NOT get better in ANY way when it is aged. In my opinion, anyway.

Agreed. Fresh sea urchin is hands down some of the most amazing seafood I have ever tasted.

Right on, glad to hear that some of you enjoy the toro and sea urchin like myself! Just wish it was more affordable.

Yeah, it stinks how many of the tastiest foods are uber expensive where I am--toro (and haven't even seen it yet), king salmon, cherimoya, raw aged sheep cheese, artisinal mead, etc.
