Ingredients:
1 rather small zucinni, about a dozen long beans, 1/2 cup of frozen peas (warmed), 1oz of frozen brine, 1/2oz of frozen blood worm, 1 tablespoon of frozen prawn, 2 tablespoon of freeze dried daphnia, 3 Spirulina waffers (Wardley), 1 cubes of left over BBS, and 1 small clove of garlic.


Zucinni= Meaty vegtable. In Europe I believe they have a differnt name. Picture of Veggie.

Beans= I used the long thin green beans that are in season, whole.

Peas= Frozen shelled peas. I did leave the skins on.

Brine= Some how I missed the shrimp on this. *corrected now*. Just a small flat package of brine shrimp. Not the frozen cubes.

Blood Worm= Found in the frozen section of your LFS. They are a red insect larvae, beetle maybe.

Prawn= Frozen shrimp. These were rather small ones. Marketed towards small to medium saltwater fish I believe.

Daphnia= I picked up Hikari brand. It looks like saw dust. It's those small creatures that you see when you look in pond water under a microscope.
Close up of our little friend.

Spirulina= Blue green algae. Link to a product and some information. Now packaged for human consumption.

BBS= Baby Brine Shrimp. Same animal as before, but still very small. Egg sack included for more nuetrition.

Garlic= Everyone fav spice... well at least my fishes, heheheh...

I hope that tells you what you need.

Hello

Old World vegetable fans know the 'Zucchini' as a Courgette. Actually they're marrows, picked when they're tiny - if you let one grow they get all big and tasteless. I have a bunch of 'em to pick from our garden this afternoon. Smile

Vaguely interesting that both words use the diminutive form - 'ini' (Italian) or 'ette' (French). In French, it means 'little gourd'. Ho hum.

Cheers! (or should that be Salute! or Sante! ?)

Acutally I am using old ice trays.

Kunnagh. Here in the States we usually let ours grow as big as the plant will support them. When they ripe, we pick them. They can get quiet large. Maybe that's why people are always trying to give them away. *LOL* Of course there are always breads (YUMMM!), pasta dishes, cassoroles (GALOUR!), freezing, by them selves, raw, stews, etc, etc, etc... the list goes on. I just ate 4 times today and this making me hungry. *LOL* Happy "cooking".

Zucchini, lightly breaded and deep fried, same for squash. They are also great stir fried.

BGA for human consumption???? Never mind checked out the link..... Spirulina doesn't sound much more appealing than Blue Green Algae ;^)

Yeah, ours don't get much beyond 4 inches before they start to go a bit weird, so we have to pick them then. The best way to eat them, in my 'umble opinion (imuo Smile is to have them as the main vegetable in a chicken curry. Not much good for your fish, though.

I am interested in the garlic thing - why do fish like it? Have you tried other herby or spicy flavours on them? I suppose there are plants that taste garlicky (sp?) so there might be a natural prototype.

Now I'm hungry, and I never got that way with fish food before!

Cheers!
