As I was walking around chinatown this week after delivering Bak Kwa to my customers, I quickly noticed that salted eggs fish skin had become a regular item sold this upcoming lunar new year. There were many stalls selling it. It was at this time that I asked myself, “Are there that many fishes to be skinned to be made in to salted eggs fish skin?”
I texted Mr. Lennon Ang and asked him if he supplied fish skin to those snack sellers. His reply was that these snack sellers could have purchased the fish skins from a fish skin factory. I dug a little deeper and realised that there is such a thing called a Fish Skinning machine. Each machine cost between US$1500-3000 before shipping. Check out this video:
Easily costing S$12 (or more) per 150g of salted eggs fish skin, these addictive snacks packs a super high margin for the sellers. And if you crave for some, do have a look at the following news article before you buy:

There are a bunch of “must-dos” during Chinese New Year and this is something i personally did not know of until Mrs. #CommandoFishmonger sent me a picture of a commonly available fish, the RabbitFish.
Easily found from the West Pacific to the Eastern shores of the Indian Ocean, the RabbitFish measures about 15-20cm long and are eaten regularly by locals in Singapore. Very popular among Teochews, the fish is usually served steamed with ginger strips and Hua Diao wine.
During Chinese New Year, serving the RabbitFish for reunion dinner is especially popular. I was told that for only a few days in a year, the rabbit fish sold in local markets are full of creamy roe or milt (fish semen). This is the period when the RabbitFish get ready to spawn and loses the bitter taste in their stomach. It is believed that eating the rabbit fish when its stomach is full of roe or milt is a sign of prosperity.
Can you name the fish in the image above? According to Mrs. #CommandoFishmonger, this is the ugliest fish on her menu. However, the meat of this fish is amazing!

You may be wondering why a leather jacket fish is called a Leather Jacket. You will have your question answered by watching this video:
#CommandoFishmonger, Mr. Lennon Ang, will show you how it is done.
#Wikipedia – The leather jacket fish or leather jack, is a species of jack in the family Carangidae. The Carangidae is a family of fish which includes the jacks, pompanos, jack mackerels, runners, and scads. The largest leather jack is about a foot long. Its length averages about 3.5 times the width.
Did you know? Leather jacks live in shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico and southern Atlantic coast. Also, it is found in Australian waters, in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. All leather jacks species have no scales and are covered in a leather-like skin or jacket!
The texture of the fish is firm, comes in thick chunks of meat which don’t contain small bones. It’s very affordable for home cooking.
