cayman cuisine

I have been experimenting with local fare in my kitchen lately, trying whatever I can affordably cook. This has led to some definite trial-and-error experiences with common items such as wahoo fish [which I baked whole, figuring out how to go from there], cow heart [surprisingly tasty, and cheap!], and conch [which donated its shell to grace my bathroom decor]. Today was a new one, however. As food prices are sky high, I have so far not been willing to shell out the $12/lb necessary for fresh tuna. But this afternoon I was chatting with some fisherman and this gentleman was kind enough to give me several cuts from his catch: quite an impressive one, as you can see!
