Fresh prawns

One thing you need to deal with living in the country is the lack of fresh seafood. If you are a seafood lover, don't even think about moving to the country as the nearest coastline from here is 320 kms away. My lifesaver is someone whom I call the Seafood man. He arrives in sydney from his truck every Thursday at noon and does the local area, staying in each town for a few hours at a time. He has the best prawns ! However, I do miss freshly shucked oysters, balmain bugs etc. He has a little whiteboard of the stock he is carrying for the day and you just pick from that. Thankfully the fish is varied. I have had hopes that fish can taste as different as pork, beef, chicken etc. but so far I can't tell the difference between ling, bream and hake. Salmon and tuna are a whole different story though. Most of the time, fish is fish to me.
