Wahoo and a Jointed Tower
Our local fish market, Shelly's Seafood, had fresh wahoo from Costa Rica so we got enough to make several meals over the next couple of days. The name of this fish is really fun to say, wahoo. It sounds like a word of pure joy if spoken slowly and drawn out, waaa hooo! Today I seared two fillets on the stove top with garlic and cilantro. Next time I'll reserve the cilantro for adding at the end of the cooking. Still it was delicious.
Here's the most recent, a jointed tower, about fourteen inches tall. I had to lie it down on a piece of foam to firm it up for a while because it started to sink into itself. The white stoneware clay I'm using has a very long working time. Here's the other side of the tower.
Happy Fourth of July. Oh and check out children's author, Carole Ann Carr's, free ebook promotion. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
