A couple of times this month, when eating at "higher end" restaurants I was asked by the server "how do you like your fish cooked", as if I was ordering a steak at the Keg.
I am puzzled by this question. I expect the chef to know how to cook eat type of fish she serves. What does "rare", "medium rare" "medium" "medium well" and "well done" mean when it comes to fish?. Is it the same for salmon, sole, black cod, or tuna? It makes no sense to me.
What's next? "how do you want your linguine cooked" ?
