With regard to baked potatoes, my mom always rubbed her pierced baking potatoes with Crisco. She said she liked a crisp skin on her baked potato and now, having grown up and moved away, we "kids" do the same to our baking potatoes. 

I can see how you would think oil would keep the skin soft but it's the high heat on those fat-covered potato skins that makes the crispy skin happen.

 

Now we call that "air frying"...

You are a TJ's guy. Remember when they used to sell lobsters vac-packed in  salted water like "sea water" in the freezer case?

It's 90F+ Plus so bit hot for pizza, but it's my Birthday this week so I don't care :)

 

Sausage, Onions, Red Pepper, and some Basil.

Once the heads turn dark,  they are breaking down/  your product looks steller.  From Whom?

 

These were a live and very active.   They are from a local company.  Interesting story on how they saved their commercial business during Covid. https://www.nationalobserver.com/2020/10/16/news/how-island-seafood-company-hooked-fresh-opportunities-during-covid-19

 

Their delivery service is amazing.  Fresh and frozen seafood delivered right to the door.

That is how I was told by the experts to freeze prawns.  Have been doing them this way for years.

The heads turn dark because of oxygenation which starts as soon as the prawn dies. Freezing or cooling slows the process.

Commercially, in the cooking process, you add sodium metabisulphate which is a preservative and stops the oxygenation.

 

If the prawns are snap frozen when caught it stops the process, but the process will start again when thawed.

 

No idea whether you can add preservative to fresh prawns without cooking.

 

The black is the evidence of this process and will show up in the head and digestive track. It makes the prawn unattractive and eventually any bacteria present will spoil the prawn.

 

How long after the heads starts to tun black before the prawn spoils is the same as the question "how long is a piece of string?" Unknowable unless you know exactly how the prawn was treated from the time it was caught.

An ammonia like smell usually a prettty good indicator that the prawn is "off"

 

Even prawns sold as fresh may have been snap frozen when caught, but that is NOT a bad thing, it preserves the prawn in pristine condition.

Pan Seared Duck Breast and Vegetable Stir Fry with Teriyaki Sauce and Sushi Rice

 

It is bad enough that @Ann_T torments me with her food porn, do you have to do the same?

 

That duck looks so good.

Porterhouse steak under baby bella mushrooms sauted with butter, olive oil, red wine and garlic. Last year's frozen green beans sauted with butter and garlic, and the last of Sunday's leftover charred asparagus.PXL_20210609_005240661.thumb.jpg.d1e3d266345990a07158922214dda26e.jpg
