Last chance shopping

Fish and seafood (especially prawns) are popular Christmas fare in Australia. Last night we went to the Sydney Fish Market to buy a salmon to poach, and came across this monster Moon Fish. Not too sure it will end up on anyone's Christmas table though. Reports are things have been busy at the fish market; it was pretty easy when we were there at 8pm last night. The market remains open from 5am 23 December to 5pm 24 Dec - 36 hours of continuous trading, and busy most tof that time.

Best thing to do is take your own esky or cool bag to bring the seafood home in. I'm pretty sure these book shop present wrappers wouldn't be quite the right thing at the fish markets. I guess they will be moving on to other things from end of business today.


  1. Happy Christmas, happy blogging.
    I was about to do 'fish' as well and log out for Christmas and saw you had already been down that path!

  2. Looks a fine fish, Sally.

    Wishing you three a wonderful Christmas!

  3. Happy Christmas to you and yours Sally.

    I don't comment much but always enjoy your photos.

  4. Wow! The fish is impressive! I guess it tastes well, too :)

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Hi Sally! Sorry for the absence, but these last weeks were a nightmare. Just dropped by to wish you a great season! Hope to be back before 2009... ;)
    Meanwhile Blogtrotter is starting its new adventure in India. Enjoy and have a great week!

    PS: Miss your comments, as always...

  6. Love the wrappers picture. So neat and orderly. My wrapping look like I had a fight with it all. Haha. Love the blog.
    Merry Christmas

  7. Happy Christmas Sally to you and your family.
    I suppose a turkey roast just would not work in Oz with the hot weather at Christmas.
