    Boats and fishing: Biosecurity in the Tasmania Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA)

    September 21, 2019


    Any form of travel may bring pests and
    diseases into our remote areas, parks and natural places causing damage to ecosystems or even extinction Make sure to check, clean and dry all your
    gear, and if you can’t dry disinfect to keep our natural areas pristine Gary France is president of the Trout Guides and Lodges in Tasmania He cleans his boat and equipment before, during and after every fishing trip. Let’s take a look at his routine I’ve just come out of the water and I’m going to check the trailer over for potential
    weeds hanging off any of the parts and remove that I’m going to get up into the boat and give a spray of disinfectant inside the bilge As I release the plug that’s going to
    come out I’ll go and do a few things, tidy up, come back and finally allow that disinfectant to do its job It’s important to pay a little bit of
    detailed attention with wading boots and waders, they often come with a standalone gaiters and you just need to have a good look inside these little crevices These area take longer to dry out, so when you’re doing your spray down and check, just check in those areas for things that can be tucked away and unseen I want to make sure there’s no weed on
    that fly I just want to make sure there’s no moisture or weed caught up in that fly so I’ll
    give that a clean, but also check the guides depending on the location you can pick
    up a bit of weed out of the water and then carry it to another water so just
    giving it a good check over if I’ve been there a few days and I’m planning a
    change I’m not just check the inside of the reel and make sure that nothing is
    caught up inside They’re very simple and easy to check and easy to pop back together As president of Track, Guides and Lodges, I make this available to members F10 is the the disinfectant that we’re using and I mix it up according to the instructions. The bottle
    is very well labeled, it’s an easy process This is a premix solution. Any of our
    members that have done the workshop have the certificate We provide them with the disinfectant the motto that was put down by the biosecurity plan is Check Clean and Dry and if you can’t dry, Disinfect

    NEW METAL SHARK! – Feed and Grow Fish Christmas Update – Part 115 | Pungence

    September 17, 2019


    – It’s a crab wearing a Santa hat. You don’t remind me of
    Santa Claus, you killed me! What? Dude, look at that! Please, we open it? Achievement! Guys, do you know what day it is today? That’s right, it’s the best day ever. Guys, it’s update day, we gotta brand new update
    in Feed and Grow Fish. I’m so excited. We gotta brand new present, we’re gonna be opening
    a new present today. I guess the Santa crabs
    brought us a present. There’s actually Santa crabs. I love these Christmas updates. If you’re excited too hit
    that like button and guys, I got an idea. I was thinking, since we got an update, what if we did two Feed and
    Grow Fish videos next week. If we can get over nine-thousand
    likes on this video, that’s right, over nine-thousand. We’ll two Feed and Grow
    Fish videos next week. So guys, it’s up to you. But hey, only hit the like
    button if you like the video, so maybe, we’ll see. With the new update it
    kinda erased all my mods. We got no mods, there’s no mods,
    I’m playing the game legit. And it’s been awhile, I think
    it’s been a couple months since we’ve just played
    the game straight up so, I might be a little rusty,
    I’m gonna warn you guys. I might be a little rusty,
    but I got some coins, I got sixty-one coins. And I’m thinking, yo we got
    this new barracuda skin. This was the old one but I
    don’t think we’ve played as this barracuda before so all we
    gotta do is open the present and see what’s inside,
    so let’s get in here. Also I wanna talk about the new stuff that’s been updated in this update. Look at this, this is all new. One of the new things in
    the update is they said some of the in the ocean map,
    which I guess is the ocean map have been updated or finished. They never had plankton
    before, is this edible? I don’t think that’s edible,
    I think that’s decoration. (chuckles) But all this stuff is new, I
    think all this stuff is new. Actually the map looks really nice too and last time I tried it
    actually, it was pretty foggy. I couldn’t see much. I’m liking it, I’m liking the
    alterations they did so far. What’re we waiting for let’s
    just open these presents. Guys we gotta see the Santa
    crabs, look at this guy! It’s a crab wearing a Santa hat, but it doesn’t have the white ball on top. Uh oh! Oh no! Guys, the controller, oh no! How dare you, how dare you? You don’t remind me of
    Santa Claus, you killed me! He killed me, that doesn’t
    remind me of Santa Claus. Okay, so I’m a little
    rusty, I’m a little rusty. Are you serious, a crab just took me out? How many bites does it
    take to get this thing? Oh right, with the barracuda
    we do more damage by sprinting. The faster we go, the more damage we do. I gotta remember that. (chuckles) Let’s test it on this. Dude, two point four. I went from half of a point
    of damage, to two point four. That’s pretty good, that’s
    really good actually. You know what, Santa crabs,
    you think you’re so great ’cause you’re wearing a Santa hat? Well watch this! That things got reindeer antlers. Let’s do speed, speed, that’s right! I got the speed, he almost killed me. I’m only at four health. No, I have the speed though. But I have speed, get ’em, yes! Is it just me or these crabs
    like super crabs or something. And he’s so fast, he’s got a red nose! It’s a Rudolph the red nose Santa crab. Okay guys, we’re about
    to get revenge on ’em. I can’t wait any longer, we
    gotta open this last present. Last year they did a Christmas event too. If you never opened
    the presents last year, now you got another
    chance to open presents. What else, lets read one
    of the things they changed. Presents are back. They reduced the prices
    on some of the fish, which is really nice. The experience required
    to level up as a big fish has been reduced. I’m not sure which of these
    presents is a new one, so let’s just start opening. Let’s open this one! It’s not opening. I think last year all we
    had to do was just touch it and it opened. Yes! Oh there’s the mecha bibos,
    which we got last year. There’s the alpha gray white shark. They’re not popping out like they used to. (chuckles) Can I bite ’em? Can’t really bite ’em. And then this should be the fossil bibos. Oh no, that’s the mecha
    bibos, wait a minute. That’s the mecha bibos. That’s the alpha gray white shark. What is this, is that something different? Oh no, we got a Santa crab. Those guys are mean even though
    they gave us these presents. Maybe this is the fossil bibos. That’s the fossil bibos. That’s the mecha bibos. There’s the alpha gray white shark. This must be the new thing we got. I didn’t get a notification or anything. I feel like last year gave
    us some kinda notification. I’ll deal with you in a
    minute, you crazy Santa crab. We opened the present, so
    I should have a new fish. Let’s just take a look. Fish select. Just keep looking. It looked like a shark or somethin’. What? Dude, look at that! Requires achievement: Mecha
    Shark: Merry Christmas. Locked, requires achievement:
    Mecha Shark: Merry Christmas. How do we get that achievement? It’s another version of
    the great white shark. Are you serious? Mecha shark? This is my new favorite! Requires achievement: Mecha
    Shark: Merry Christmas. Wait how do we get achievement: Mecha Shark: Merry Christmas? I bet it’s by opening the
    present, but I opened the present. Uh oh. I just restarted the game,
    I think I know what it is. I think I know what the problem is. I don’t have any mods installed but I did spawn in some coins. On the top right I
    think it said “cheated”. I did spawn in some coins just so we could play as the barracuda. I think that’s what it was. That was the fossil bibos. This is the mecha bibos. This was the alpha gray white shark. Please give me an achievement
    for this mecha shark, please! We open it, achievement! Two-thousand eighteen Christmas
    gift, achievement unlocked. Mecha Shark Merry Christmas. Did we just get a mecha shark? Here’s the thing, we need some coins. We need some coins to play as this guy. How many coins do we need? Oh boy, two-hundred coins. Oh my goodness, look at that thing. It’s a robot shark! All the stats are the same as
    the regular great white shark. Don’t hate me, but we gotta
    play at this thing so, I gotta do it. We need the coins, so I
    could play for an hour or so and get the coins or we could
    just play as him right now. Actually before we do that,
    we got a new tiger shark. They changed the model of the tiger shark, they said to make it more accurate. I like this, I like this new model. Let me know in the
    comments what you think. I think is the third tiger
    shark model we’ve gone through. Personally, I like it. Maybe we should try it in a future video. But today we’re doing this
    mecha great white shark. I can’t believe this. I gotta see this thing, I gotta see it. Another thing guys, I wanted to let you I
    tried to play a server- Oh! I spawned right next to that other guy, you’re not gonna hurt me are ‘ya. We’re friends. (chuckles) But I tried playing on a server
    which is what I used to do but for whatever reason
    all the hostile fish or the predator fish, they
    don’t spawn in so Old Blood, the creators of the game,
    if you’re watching this. If there’s any way to fix
    that, that’d be awesome ’cause I love playing on a
    server, plus we can play as anything when we’re on a server. Let’s take a look at this thing. I love it! Look at those eyes. Look at that body. Look at those details. This thing is crazy. Oh my goodness. In his throat it actually
    looks like a gun. Imagine if he could shoot lasers. Imagine if this things could shoot lasers. That would be so stinking cool. He already is really cool. Can I get a close up of this guy? Can we get a close up up
    against a rock or something? Let’s get close up of this guy. This thing is amazing. Definitely one of my favorite
    Christmas presents this year. The mecha bibos, I think
    that was my favorite before. The mecha bibos, might’ve
    been my favorite. This might be my new favorite. Imagine a baby version of this. I wonder if there’s a
    baby version of this. That would be amazing too. Look in his tail, there’s some kind of black
    thing connecting it all. I don’t know man. Let’s eat, let’s eat some fish. You know what I wanna eat first? I think you know. Let’s get those stupid
    Santa crabs, that’s right. Hey Santa crab, you think you’re strong? Well you’re pretty fast. Take this! Uh oh, I missed him. I can’t get one of this guys. Let’s get Rudolph the red
    nosed Santa crab, got him! One bite, one bite and he’s gone. Let’s get this guy, got him. (chuckles) I wonder if we can just swallow him whole. Can I swallow this Santa crab? They are really fast. I can’t catch this guy, he’s so fast. Got him. We can swallow ’em whole. It’s kinda crazy too,
    how the eyes come out. The eyes come out a little bit. The models in this game are so amazing. Wait a minute, look at this guy. Oh no, he was on his back! Got ’em. (chuckles) That guy was on his back. Let’s get this coccosteus. Let’s get something a
    little bigger like maybe a dunkleosteus or. What’re those? A buncha barracuda, get back
    here you crazy barracuda. Hammer head! One bite, everything is one bite. I’m very happy about that. This is such a great Christmas. Also it feels great to just be
    playing regular death match. We’ve been playing with mods
    for so long it feels good to just be playing the
    regular game in death match. Let’s eat some puffer fish. I think he poisoned me. It said negative four but it was green. I think that poisoned me. (chuckles) Did you see the ragdoll on that guy? Where’s the dunkleosteus,
    we need some competition. He usually hangs out
    around here, this is crazy. Actually I just remembered I
    need to talk about update stuff so they said the water
    rendering is improved. It looks better to me. The tiger shark new model, more accurate. Aigialosaurus behavior fixed. I guess they said the aigialosaurus would just ignore everything. Now it’ll actually fight stuff. More ocean map parts fixed. Whoa, that’s all glowy in
    there, that’s pretty cool. (chuckles) I love the ocean map
    improvements, it looks very nice. Hey get back here you crazy Santa crab. I can’t be too mad at the Santa crabs. Technically I think it was
    them who gave us the presents. What’re those particles coming off? That’s pretty cool. What else we got? Megaladon! The megalodon is now playable in the game. I know we can play with him, with mods. But now we can play with him legit. But we gotta take him out and when we do we get another achievement. Let’s take out this tiger shark. We get another achievement,
    so leave a like or let me know in the comments
    if we should try to take out the megalodon and get that
    achievement next video. Let me know what you think we should use. I wonder if we could use
    this thing because this is technically a shark, the
    megalodon is kind of like a type of shark so it might not let me fight him. I don’t know guys. This is crazy. This is absolutely crazy. Where’s the dunkle- oh! There’s a goliath fish. Where’s the dunkleosteus though? Did you see that, we just
    shake it back and fourth, look at that! That is so awesome. Out of all the fish we’ve
    eaten, I’m only level three. (chuckles) This is why I like playing on a server. ‘Cause you can increase the
    experience rate by three. Let’s get another goliath fish. I just love thrashing those things around. I let go, where’d he go? There he is. I just love thrashing ’em. We’re only level three. There’s not a lot of
    stuff in this ocean map. But that’s another thing on the servers. You can control how many
    things spawn, what spawns in. But for whatever reason, none
    of the predators are spawning, which is kinda crazy. Whoa, look at this! Look at those particles. Oh, I think that’s a glitch. At first it kinda looked like rocks, but I think that’s a
    little bit of a glitch. (chuckles) It looks kinda cool though,
    it almost looks like rocks. It’s still kinda fun examining this map. Was this always here? I don’t know. But look at the water surface,
    the surface of the water, that looks kinda different. Can I jump out of the water? Okay. It seems like even outside
    of the waters improved. That looks pretty nice, maybe we’ll go into
    spectate mode or something. I can’t eat octavius. What’s this great white doing? Aren’t ‘cha gonna eat anything? We should actually double
    check just to make sure we opened all of our presents. I know I asked in my Amazing
    Frog video, but let me know in the comments what you
    guys got for Christmas. Also if you guys wanna know
    what I got for Christmas, what was that poison thing? That was a hundred and
    seventy-five damage! It’s doing a hundred
    and seventy-five damage! We’re about to die! What’s happening? What was going on? Was that some kind of
    poisonous coral or something? What was that? We almost died there, that was crazy. If you wanna know what
    I got for Christmas, I was showing it all in
    my Amazing Frog video. We also got a Christmas
    update in Amazing Frog. If you haven’t checked it out, you gotta check it out those videos. I’ll put a link at the end of this video so you guys can check it out. Is there anything else new in this map? I kinda wanna figure out what
    was hurting me over here. We almost died! We almost died by just
    snooping around in here. There might be some kinda
    poisonous thing in here. Where was it, I think it was right here. Something was doing a
    hundred, what was that? What do you think it is? Something’s doing a hundred
    and something damage is poisoning me. In here. Is it this green stuff,
    it’s not the green stuff. Hundred seventy-five, we’re about to die. One more hit from that
    stuff, we’re about to die. That might be some kinda new stuff. That is crazy, I only
    have ninety-five health. Uh oh. That’s gonna help, eating
    those swordfish helps. That’s crazy. If you know what that is,
    definitely let me know. I think it’s some kind of
    poisonous coral or something. Oh there he is, this is
    gonna be our best battle. I have six-hundred health. We’re going up against a dunkleosteus. He can’t even catch that hammer-head. Let me cut in. (chuckles) Here we go, we’re going
    up against a dunkleosteus. I can’t let him get a hit
    in, it’s too dangerous. I can’t let him hit me. Whoa, I’m only doing six,
    seven and eight damage against that guy? He’s got a ton of protection on his face. That is crazy weird, I’m just
    shaking him around like crazy. That leveled me up pretty good. The dunkleosteus, definitely
    our best competition but at the same time, kinda no competition. Aww man, remember this spot guys? This was our spot! But they took out the
    dreu, so no more dreu spot. I hope they bring it
    back again soon though. Let’s see if I can get him from behind. We do so much more damage when
    we attack him from the back. That was crazy. Wait a minute. It looks like there’s some
    kind of design on his head, Do you see that? You can only see it in the light. Almost like a paint design or something. You can only see it when
    the light reflects on it a certain way, that’s kinda crazy. That was weird. I was just eating a goliath
    fish and then my game crashed. That was really weird. So I’m back to level one. I think all that time playing, I think I was only at
    level nine or something. I wanna see what this dunkleosteus has. He won’t even bite me. Oh! Okay, he is biting. Uh oh. He does some decent damage. And if we’re going head to
    head, he’s got a little bit of an advantage cause he’s
    got all the protection on him. But he’s dead. (chuckles) We got ’em and he respawned. He wants a rematch, it doesn’t matter how many times we fight, I’m gonna win. He can’t beat the mecha shark. I just love that thrashing animation. I still say laser beams. Imagine lasers coming out of his mouth or some kind of gun or something. We’re aiming for nine-thousand
    likes on this video. If you wanna two Feed and
    Grow Fish videos next week. We gotta take out that megalodon
    and get the achievement then we can play as him. If you haven’t been seeing
    my new amazing frog videos, the update has been really really fun. Thank you so much for watching
    and I’ll see you next time. (electronic music) Now’s the moment of truth, let’s see if this thing
    is gonna explode ooh! Oh my goodness it’s a Pungence gun! Oh! It’s turns everyone into Pungence! No! No, he got me, I’m popping
    ’em, I’m trying to get out. Crazy red shark, dude he’s going in!

    What Happens To Fish During A Hurricane

    September 16, 2019


    (thunder booms) – [Narrator] Normally when a hurricane is barrelling towards us, we
    tend to run the other way. But not Isla, she’s a leatherback turtle who was meandering off
    the coast of Virginia when she accidentally swam
    straight into Hurricane Florence. Scientists were worried
    she’d get caught up in the middle of the storm,
    but Isla managed to survive by swimming towards deeper waters. Turns out there’s a part of hurricanes we don’t often think about:
    what happens under the surface. And Isla is just one example. (compelling music) Far out at sea, fish that
    live near the surface might feel some turbulence
    as a storm passes, but most sea creatures including
    dolphins, whales and sharks avoid the rough surface water
    and swim to calmer seas. But it’s a different story near shore. Changes in water temperature and salinity can be
    catastrophic for marine life. Hurricanes can generate massive waves, which mix warm surface water with cooler, saltier water
    below, generating currents that extend up to 91
    meters below the surface. These currents are so strong, that they can sweep manatees
    inland into canals and ponds, or away from coastal waters altogether and into the open ocean, where they can become
    disoriented and even die. Hurricanes also bring heavy rains, so freshwater often floods coastal areas. And because freshwater is
    less dense than saltwater, it sits on top of the
    saltwater like oil on vinegar, where it can prevent oxygen from reaching the salty layer below and disrupt salinity levels, which can lead to sores,
    lesions and ultimately death in whales, dolphins and porpoises. Hurricanes can also kick up
    dirt and sand in shallow seas, which can kill fish by
    clogging their gills. Experts think that this is
    probably one of the factors that killed an estimated
    9.4 million saltwater fish in 1992 during Hurricane Andrew. The dirty, murky water
    also blocks sunlight from reaching corals and sea grass. In fact, scientists found that coral cover in the Caribbean decreases on average by 17% a year after a hurricane strikes. And that’s in addition to the stress coral already face from human interference from things like global
    warming or pollution. But hurricanes are not
    always bad news for sea life, believe it or not. After Hurricane Katrina
    damaged or destroyed 90% of fishing boats in the Mississippi Sound, scientists observed a huge
    increase in dolphin births. Without all the fishing boats around, dolphins suddenly found themselves with tons of fish all at their disposal, and their populations thrived. And of course, hurricanes
    impact land animals, too. Sometimes they change
    ecosystems altogether. For instance, the Hawaiian island of Kauai is now inundated with feral chickens. Locals say they are the descendants of domesticated chickens that escaped when hurricanes blew open coops. And in North Carolina, torrential rains from Hurricane Florence overwhelmed more than 100 hog waste lagoons, possibly releasing pig waste
    into the local water supply. Unfortunately, research indicates that the intensity of
    hurricanes will only increase with climate change. So if we don’t get a handle on it soon, we’ll be in some deep shh pig waste, we’ll be in some deep pig waste. (compelling music) (electronic tones)

    Gordon Ramsay Demonstrates How To Make Fish & Chips: Extended Version | Season 1 Ep. 6 | THE F WORD

    September 15, 2019


    – Right, the most which is my go-to
    comfort food– served with incredible fries and the
    most delicious mushy peas. For me, fish and
    chips screams cod– highly sustainable,
    delicious, but the secret is in the batter. This is a beer batter, double
    zero flour, eggs, and beer. It sort of makes it
    lighter, crispier, and it’s an amazing flavor. The secret is to make that
    batter the night before. The more you let it rest,
    it becomes so crispy. Take your cod, run it through
    into seasoned flour, salt, pepper. You could jazz this up a little
    bit with a touch of paprika. Lightly season your fish. To wet a fish can
    destroy the batter, so I like to season my
    fish first with salt. That extracts the moisture
    from the fish, which keeps the batter even more crispy. Then from there, just
    brush off that seasoning and just pat down the fish. That way it stays nice and firm. Into the flour, and
    then nicely rolled– make sure you get the ends done. Dredge the fish in
    the flour in order to make sure the batter
    sticks, really important. And then next, into the batter. Make sure you dust off any
    excess flour, otherwise, you get these white clumps of
    flour underneath the batter. Into the batter, let it sink. I like topping tailing my fish. I trim the top, trim
    the base– you’ve got the even piece of fish. If it’s cut evenly, it’s
    going to cook evenly. Shake off the excess
    flour and into the batter. Roll that fish around
    and let it sink in there. Now oil comes up to 300. It takes about six to seven
    minutes to cook beautifully, but here’s the secret. Keep that fish coated. This is where it gets
    messy, but exciting. Lift up your fish. Go left to right, dredging
    it, and then very quickly get a point of the fish. Let the battery run down,
    shake off any excess flour, and then into the fryer. And just sort of taunt
    it first, and just let it lay away from you. Shake the pan gently. That starts to cover
    the top of the fish. Take a spatula and just gently
    baste the top of the fish. Once you’ve had the fish
    in there for two minutes, flip over the fish. That way you see
    it evenly coated. God, it’s beautiful,
    golden brown. Now take that out. Shake it well. Let that sit. They’re like these
    perfect parcels, and literally let
    that sit there. Now as it’s piping
    hot, use salt, and just lightly season the top. And what happens
    to the fish now, it just gets even
    crispier, but the batter’s seasoned underneath and on top. And that’s really important. Right, fries– these
    are Yukon gold potatoes and basically just peeled. Don’t wash, because
    I want the starch to get really nice and crispy. I start them off at a very
    low temperature, in a way that I blanch them. And I have literally in the oil
    first for two minutes at 330– in. [sizzling] Blanching basically means
    cooking with no color. And the secret here
    now is to blanch them for two minutes at 330. Take them out, let them rest. Crank up the heat. Go from 320 to 385, great. Now temperature’s
    risen, fries back in. Second time cooking,
    and this time, it’s going to be nice and crispy. A great indicator
    cooking in fryers is that when it
    starts to float, it’s confirmation that it’s
    cooked whether it’s fish, chicken, or fries. Cooking fries twice, blanching
    them first, and then putting them back in hot oil at the
    end is so much more healthier, because they don’t sit
    in the oil for anywhere near as long as frozen fries. So it’s really good to cook
    them twice, super healthy. Fries are done. Shake– you can hear
    how crispy they are. Out onto a tray, drain
    them really well. Lightly, rub off the excess fat. Let them sit there. I love placing
    them into a bowl– fresh parsley on top, a touch
    of paprika, and then a touch of salt and pepper. And then from there,
    just roll them around. You can hear how crispy
    they are, beautiful. Fish and chips would not be
    complete unless we’ve got peas. I use frozen peas all the
    time, so don’t be scared. A splash of oil, just a splash– peas go in, beautiful. Touch of salt, touch of pepper,
    a little hint of shallots minced in, and garlic–
    it’s a great way of elevating mushy peas. From there, a little knob
    of butter, in, and then you just toss those peas. Once that bus is
    evaporated, we turn off the gas, and then just crush– beautiful. And that’s where you take this
    frozen pea into a mushy pea. And we sort of trying to break
    it up almost like it’s sort of a puree, but I
    don’t want to refine them too much, because the
    flavor’s when you burst them. Touch more butter
    in there– butter gives it that really
    nice glossy finish. One more little finishing
    touch with fresh mint. Just bring the leaves down,
    lay them on top of one another. Get your largest leaf on the
    bottom, roll it really tight, and then just shred. Let the knife do the work. Look, beautiful, fresh mint. Now sprinkle that
    over your peas, and that just lifts
    the peas beautifully. When I serve lemon on a
    plate, I take these bits off. These are like the posh parts. It’s just like the perfect
    wedge or slice of lemon. And now we’re ready to plate. Fish comes over– hear
    how crunchy that is. Fries, place on there– look how crispy they
    are– beautifully done. And then, from there, this
    beautiful mound of mushy peas. Place to the side. Finally, this sort of Rolls
    Royce of sources with fish and chips, tartar sauce. It’s a mayonnaise with
    gherkins, onions, and the most amazing capers in there. That goes on the side. And that just cascades off. And how can you serve fish
    and chips without lemon? I get my lemon here,
    and I just squeeze it over the fish onto the salt.
    And then put a fresh one there, literally for seconds. And there we have fish
    and chips a la Gordon.

    DIY Fish Soap Retry, Corinne VS Pin #12.5

    September 14, 2019


    Whaddup internet? Corinne here and you’re watching Corinne vs Pin. Okay! I admit it, I don’t know how to make fish
    soap, but… geez, you didn’t have to be so mean about it. It’s not like I really even cared or
    anything (crying) So yeah, a bunch of you requested my head
    on a stake. Or I mean that I retried the Pin So let’s get started shall we? Just hold on a second I gotta take this call real quick Hello? Hey Corinne, it’s Sarah! Oh my goodness, it’s Sarah from so Craftastic! How you doing? I’m great. I just watched your Fish Soap video And I wanna let you know that everyone has craft fails so don’t
    worry about it, it happens Thanks, I was feeling a little down about it Uh but it does kind of help if you research your Pin. Hey um, I’m getting another call so I’m
    gonna talk to you later okay? I guess a good place to start my
    research is by going through some of the comments you left, where you give me lots
    of advice on how I should have done the pin. Let’s take a look here. You should’ve used a funnel to put the soap in Yep that would have helped. Hang the fish from a string No I don’t think that would work Use a real fish then. Rob, did you leave this comment? You should use the Han Solo figure
    instead of a fish! Clever, but not helpful You know you could have put it in the
    microwave for the soap to melt Guess I have to buy one of those now Watch SoCraftastic. Fish soap for beginners I mean I guess I should pop over and
    take a look. Yup, there’s the funnel action. Oh and an ice bath. That’s helpful. Ooh, and she uses the one
    she messed up on again by breaking them apart Smart. “I’m free!”. Well since I’m here on the
    internet I guess I should go to amazon and order these little fish since no
    craft stores by my house sell them. Um, wait do I really have to buy a
    hundred and forty four of them? Whatever, I’ll figure out something to do
    with them I guess That was quick Ok, got my fish- all hundred and forty
    four of them Alrighty, let’s get this party started. I think I got everything I need here.
    First I’m going to simply break apart Um, ok this is a lot harder than it was when
    Sarah did it yeah okay I’ll just try to cut them out then. Actually looks pretty cool like this but honestly at this point my main goal in
    life is to free this poor little fish dude or cielo camp if you will but f**k look it is extremely
    difficult to get this soap off, alright just whittling away here. F**k, really, that f**king
    hurt did I mention how much I hate this
    project, yeah next I put the soap in my new microwave and I
    gotta admit I was pretty damn excited at how much easier the soap melted than the
    previous method I used not so excited however about the radiation entering my
    being once the soap was melted I filled the bag
    using le funnel and it worked great then i just plopped my little fishy in
    there and positioned it to the front of the bag and then just set it in the ice bath I made one more and waited a few minutes
    and no not what we’re going for I think there’s just a little bit too
    much water in this bowl ok let’s just break these up this is a lot easier to do when you
    don’t wait two weeks by the way, put back in the microwave fill the bag plop fish, position, set and
    success I actually twisted the bag shut while
    the soap was still malleable and put it back in the ice bath. it stayed together quite well no need to
    waste, i mean use another supply on this project i made another one for
    sh*ts and giggles for real though I know 0 people that
    would want to receive a bag of fish soap as a gift, 0 and frankly I still feel the
    same way about this project as i did before do you have a pin you want to see us
    try on the show, leave a link to it in the comments down below don’t forget to
    subscribe and like up this video because we like when you like us, till next time

    Crispy Beer Batter Fish & Chips – Food Wishes

    September 13, 2019


    hello this is chef john from food wishes
    comm with crispy beer batter fish and chips
    that’s right anybody can do a beer batter fish that stays crispy for a few
    minutes but I’m sorry for me that is just not long enough okay not to sound
    too high-maintenance but I kind of want my crispy fried fish to stay crispy
    throughout the entire eating process and by the way it’s always a nice thing when
    the recipe that provides the best results also just happens to be the
    easiest recipe which is the case here so with that let’s go ahead and get started
    with our batter and that’s gonna begin with one cup of self-rising flour which
    is nothing more than regular flour that’s milled with baking powder and
    salt and as usual I will tell you how to mix up your own in the blog post which
    is super easy and only takes a second and then to this flour we’re also going
    to add about two tablespoons of rice flour or if you want some other kind of
    non wheat flour okay some people like cornstarch some people like potato
    starch which will also work but I like the rice flour and then last but not
    least I’m also gonna add in a little extra touch of baking powder and even
    though our self-rising flour already contains baking powder I do like to add
    just a little bit more and that’s it we’ll take a whisk and give this a mix
    until we have everything thoroughly combined and that is now ready to finish
    off by stirring in our beer which by the way I’m going to wait to do until I’m
    ready to use this and because one the secrets here is keeping the batter as
    cold as possible what we’ll do is transfer these dry ingredients into the
    freezer and we’ll leave this in there until we’re ready to mix in our beer and
    then once that’s set we can move on to prep our fish and today I’ll be using
    some beautiful frozen cod which I gently defrost it overnight in the fridge and
    if we are going to use frozen fish or any fish for that matter we want to make
    sure to get it as dry as possible okay so use some paper towels and blot off
    any excess moisture and then what we’ll do once our fish has been thawed and
    dried is possibly cut it down the middle to make to approximately one inch thick
    strips sure we could have just fried this as is but by cutting it not only
    will cook faster but we’re also increasing our surface area which means
    that much more crispy coating and then what we’ll do once that’s cut is go
    ahead and dust those in a little bit of seasoned rice flour be
    for they go in the batter and what this is gonna do is absorb any of that last
    moisture on the surface and then once that’s been lightly dusted and we shake
    off the excess what we’ll do is transfer it onto some crinkled up foil and this
    is just gonna serve as sort of a drying rack for that fish okay so that’s gonna
    let some air circulate underneath and we will have less chance of a soggy bottom
    oh by the way I’m just seasoning with a little bit of salt but if you did want
    to sneak in some spices like curry powder chili powder etc this would be a
    great step to do that but anyway we’ll go ahead and dust our fish in the rice
    flour along with like I said any other seasonings we want and then because we
    want to keep everything cold well transfer that into the fridge until
    we’re ready to use it and that’s it once our fish is prepped in our oils hot we
    can pull our dry ingredients either freezer and finish this batter off by
    pouring in some beer and for this I recommend a nice inexpensive lager style
    okay I have one imported from Australia in large blue cans but really any cheap
    lager is gonna work and that’s because you’re more affordable can beers are
    gonna be nice and light in color and taste not to mention have a nice high
    level of carbonation and all we’re gonna do is whisk it enough until it’s as
    thick or as thin as we want okay so I’ll start with a nice big splash and I’ll
    give it a stir and then I’ll decide if I need more which I did and what I’m going
    for is something similar to a nice thick pancake batter all right keep in mind
    the thicker the batter the thicker the coating once it’s fried and since
    personally I want a nice thin crispy coating I tend to go for a thinner
    batter and I’m actually gonna grab a spoon so you can get a good look at what
    I’m talking about okay so make it thicker if you want but
    I generally shoot for something that’s just gonna coat the fish and by the way
    I mentioned keeping everything cold as a key so if you’re not gonna use this
    right away pop it in the fridge or keep it on a bowl of ice but I was starving
    and ready to fry so I’m going to transfer in two pieces of my nice cold
    dry fish into the batter and then once those are nicely coated we’ll go ahead
    and lift them out letting most but not all the batter drip off which plane we
    will carefully transfer that into some 375 degree oil and by the way I did that
    first piece wrong because we don’t want the oil splashing towards us so place it
    in like this so it splashes away from and then what we’ll do after making sure
    those aren’t sticking together let’s let them fry for about three to four minutes
    or until they’re crispy and beautifully golden brown and there are some things
    we deep-fry that about halfway through we can kind of tip them and flip them
    over but fried fish isn’t really one of them
    so don’t worry about trying to turn them over they can just cook with that same
    side down although sometimes to hedge my bets I will give them a little dunking
    for a few seconds but anyway like I said we’ll let those go for about three or
    four minutes or until they look a little something like this
    at which point we’ll fish those out and let those drain for a few seconds on
    some paper towel and as you can hopefully see this recipe really does
    produce a gorgeous piece of fried fish which we will want to serve immediately
    on top of either some french fries which people in certain places call chips or
    on real actual chips and as you can see I’ve lined the bowl with some newspaper
    and a little bit of an homage to actual fish and chips
    speaking of which because malt vinegar is often served with the fried fish
    I actually went with salt and vinegar potato chips and that’s it before I tuck
    in I went ahead and tucked in a little bit of tartar sauce in a wedge of lemon
    which is not traditional with regular fish and chips but is very very very
    traditional with Western New York fish fries which is what I like to
    pretend this is and by the time I did that it had been about 10 minutes is’s
    came out of the fryer but it was still crispy as you’ll hear when I bite oh yeah and what I find amazing with
    this recipe is that we’ve achieved this level of Chris penis with such an
    incredibly thin coating I mean it’s barely there in fact this might even
    qualify as a low carb recipe oh and by the way as I was taking this next bite I
    thought to myself I’m gonna stop and take some pictures of the cross-section
    which is why you’re about to see me pinch off a jagged piece of the coating
    which as I was doing I realized would look weird on camera so just something I
    wanted to mention because that would have kept a few people up wondering why
    did he pinch that fish dick and of course it’s probably really obvious but
    I’ll tell you anyway just because I use Cod for this doesn’t mean you have to
    I mean you are after all the Arthur Treacher’s of what sea creatures this
    features and virtually any fish or seafood will work with this technique
    but anyway I went ahead and finished that first piece and I went ahead and
    grabbed the second and even though it had been quite a while since this came
    out of the fryer it was still just as crispy as my first bite so I just
    absolutely love this formula oh and let me give you a little tip here whether
    you’re gonna use a tartar sauce or some other sauce you want to go ahead and
    apply that to each bite all right don’t just slop it all on
    there at once otherwise everything is gonna get soggy all right so the method
    we want to use is the bite sauce white sauce white sauce
    whoop sorry it’s actually the other way around it’s sauce white sauce white
    sauce white and that will help preserve the Chris penis but anyway that’s it my
    favorite method for doing beer battered fish whether you’re going to serve yours
    on regular chips or the British style potato chips which are actually french
    fries which are really actually Belgian fries but the point is no matter what
    you serve this on I really do hope you give it a try soon so head over to food
    which is calm for all the ingredient amounts of Martha as usual and as always
    enjoy you you
