Paris (#12) - Poissonnerie, French Landscape Painting


 

Paris (#12) - Poissonnerie

 

 

April is around the corner, and April Fool's Day may be on your mind.  Are you usually the one who plans a prank or you tend to be on a receiving end of it?  If you happen to be in France on April 1, and hear someone say "Poisson d'avril (Fish of April)!" behind you, you've been pranked.

On a street in the Montmartre district, I found this poissonnerie (fish monger) with strikingly blue awnings.  It was late in the afternoon but the business was already finished for the day at this shop, as the owner was washing the glass cases.  Coming from a culture with a diet rich in fish (Japan), I would have been really interested to see what kind of fish he had.

It's been said that the more fish you eat, the better it is for your memory.  If you feel like cooking fish tonight, French-style, maybe you like this recipe (red snapper cooked in thyme-flavored salt).  It looks very easy and the pictures on the site are beautiful, too.  Bon Appétit!
