There are fabulous fish markets all over the Arabian or Persian gulf with some of the freshest fish I have seen. However, what makes them more fun than anywhere else, at least for me, is that there is a separate section where you can have your fish scaled, gutted,  filleted and cut the way you want.

Here’s a little clip of the fish cleaners which I shot in the fish market in Ajman, a small emirate not far from Dubai. The big fish the guy is cleaning will eventually be grilled whole over charcoal and served over a huge platter of rice, either white rice or biryani.

What’s more amusing is all that is discarded such as fish guts, heads (unless they are eaten), shellfish peel, etc. is used in cosmetics. You may not smell the fish (or meat for that matter) in your expensive crème de la mer or Estée Lauder cosmetics but it is very possible that some of this fish debris has gone into making them, including these lovely heads below!

    Ha! Anissa,
    I would like to say that I would never wear make-up again but you know how that goes. I can’t even stop coloring my hair and who knows what’s in that bottle.
    Great video and yes, there is something about getting your fish fresh.

    i must say, i don’t wear much make up but the idea of fish meat debris going into it will not stop me from using it. on the contrary, i like the fact that it is not wasted.

    perhaps not your cup of tea edward, but a great spectacle. and both the fish and shellfish are amazing.

    well, they wouldn’t be wasted. either turned into cosmetics or fried and eaten. delicious. and i agree that they make fabulous broth.
