I see this thread about eating frozen fish http://paleohacks.com/questions/59090/is-it-safe-to-eat-frozen-fish-raw#axzz1lBGuQGMv, but I'm wondering if anyone has experimented with eating raw fish that was just caught and hasn't been frozen yet.
Specifically, this Vermillion snapper which was "just caught this morning" according to the meat manager at Native Sun where I got it. The only reason I'm asking is because my gf and I love sushi and sashimi but would prefer to get our fish fresh from the market instead of the farmed, who-knows-where-it-came-from-and-what's-in-it fish that is typically served in sushi restaurants.
I understand the basic situation involving parasites, and that apparently most "sushi-grade" fish is usually bled on the boat and put on ice before freezing it for a few weeks in order to get that (unofficial) designation.
I'm thinking of at least trying a bite or two before I bake him to see if he even tastes as good raw as he does cooked. In the meantime, I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this?
