It’s What’s For Lunch

After crossing the river to Paraguay and spending the morning walking through the immense goods-for-cheap market, we thought about where to escape the midday heat with some good eats. Our attention caught on the aire acondicinado sign of one restaurant. A man on a moto pulled up as we approached the entrance, a mammoth of a fish lashed to the back of his ride. We gaped. I asked if I could take a photo. The man told us the fish weighed 30 kilos. That the 45 day long ban on surubi fishing starts next week, so this is one of the last before the mandatory let-the-fish-breed-and-repopulate break. We sat down in the restaurant and ate a piece of the fish that was caught before this one was carried into the kitchen, breaded, fried, with lemon, and cold beer.
