I have found the Hewlett Packard flatbed scanner indespensible for
the preparation of fish - my kitchen has never been the same since I
had one installed.  One drawback is that the scales tend to get stuck in
the ventillation slots, and another is that this hardware seems to
incompatible with the microwave and especially with the dishwasher.

I too have found alcohol indespensible for fish preparation - a nice South
Australian Chardonnay with lime juice for the fish, and a single malt
from the Scottish Isles for the chef...


We too had trouble identifying the specimen - the image lacked anther
and stigma details...
