Lisbon. October, 2009

I was warned, before I went to Spain and Portugal, not to confuse what we know in English as swordfish with what they know in Spanish and Portuguese as scabbard fish. Or something. Anyway, you can see some rolled-up examples of the latter here in the central market of Lisbon. Nasty looking things. Even nastier when unfolded to full length. I’ve never eaten one...as far as I know.
