>matodai, the star of International Fish of Mystery?

(Moved from Mar 12, 2007)

Another tai. But this punk has already made a name, or two, for himself.

Meet matodai a.k.a. Mr. John Dory a.k.a. Saint Pierre,
born Zeus faber Linnaeus. The fish darling du jour, he is a marked fish.

Mato (mark, target) + tai = matodai. See the evil eye?

>Grilled John Dory with garden lettuces and Champagne sauce - Chez Panisse, Berkeley, CA

>Sauteed John Dory, tomato marmalade, fingerling potatoes, and nicoise olive vinaigrette - The Conservatory Lounge at the Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, CA

>Matodai nigiri - Blowfish Sushi, Parnell, Auckland, New Zealand
>St. Pierre fish with laurel and fresh fennel - Amadeus, Almancil, Portugal
(He makes occasional appearances as matoudai or matoodai as well...)
