I have always been fond of fish and an avid follower of fish recipes from all over the country as well as abroad. Because my roots are in eastern India I am more familiar with fresh water fish than sea fish but after all these years in Mumbai and Thane I am now a fan of sea fish too.
I now live in Thane and although they have a bustling fish market here, I prefer fresh fish home delivery in Thane from EmeatStore, the most reliable online fish and meat store in Thane.
I have learnt to cook sea fish in different styles such as, Konkani, Udupi, Malayali, Tamil, Andhra and Odiya. At the same time, I have learnt to cook fresh water fish in Odiya, Bengali, Bihari and Assamese styles and have experimented with mixing and matching all these at different times. Among my friends I have gained quite a reputation for being an “excellent cook” of fish and one or a couple of them would occasionally bring their favourite fish to my home on weekends.
All my friends decided to have a party at my home
On one particular weekend recently, my entire friends’ circle numbering a dozen individuals decided to converge at my house just for a fish party. Prior to that we spent a full week trying to decide who will bring what fish.
Finally I put an end to all the squabbling and told everybody to just land up at my place. “Thereafter, we’ll decide which fish varieties to buy”, I told them.
Many more questions came up about whether we will have enough time in our hands to shop for different varieties of fish and then cook but I assured everybody to leave that to me. I had already noted the fish varieties that dominated the discussions earlier and so without waiting any further I ordered online fish delivery in Thane from EmeatStore.
I listed four varieties that my friends mentioned most
Among the varieties of fish that my friends mentioned most times while arguing with each other were Scampi or large prawns, Pomfret, Catla and Pabda.
If I went out to the market to look for these varieties it would have taken me at least a couple of hours if not more including the travel time to the market and back.
My friends were asking me precisely this – how will you manage to buy multiple varieties in such a short time? When will you return from the market and when will you cook let alone spend some quality time together?
This party is not just for the host to spend all her time shopping fish and then cooking it in the kitchen. “We don’t want you to go through all that” they said. I told them to relax and just make sure they reach on time for the starters and sideshows of the party. Then, I opened the Emeatstore app and placed the orders for fresh fish home delivery in Thane.
A fish party that my friends still talk about
I received delivery of all the four varieties of fish in barely 20 minutes and all the four types were of top quality. I know that because I consider myself a connoisseur of fish.
All the dishes that were to be steamed were ready within an hour. Those that were to be fried were marinated, salted and spiced…ready to go into the pan.
When my friends arrived and found me relaxed and decked for the party, they couldn’t believe it. They expected me to looking tired and worn out after a gruelling time at the kitchen.
“How did you do it?” they all asked. I quietly shared the online receipts of EmeatStore for the fresh fish home delivery in Thane with them. To my horror they again began squabbling about who gets to pay first. Finally, I intervened again and made sure the cost was equally split among all 13 of us. Thereafter, we had a ball of a time.
