Kona Kampachi Winners

EDIT: 9:00am Sunday
Tampa Trib & Observer Readers: I goofed! I held the drawing Saturday morning, but in the Tampa Tribune and EC Observer, I wrote that the drawing would be held on Sunday. Well, my goof is your gain, as this morning, I’m going to pick an additional winner from the pool of only Tribune/Observer comments…so read on…

This Saturday morning, I had every intention of waking up bright and early to post the winners. But the boys wanted to make breakfast for MiMi and PaPa (Scott’s parents), who are visiting from Buffalo, NY.

How could I say no to this face?

They made German Oven Pancakes German Oven Pancakes for breakfast.

Okay, I know. Enough about breakfast, how about the winners?

Kona Kampachi Winners

Many thanks to the Dr. Michael Daniel’s Parapsychic Random Number Generator. By the way, did you know that Parapsychology means: “the scientific study of paranormal phenomena”?? A little spooky. I wonder how Dr. D feels about me using his psychic random number generator to draw for fish winners? Maybe I should send him some fish too? Because it would really suck to be abducted by aliens or have an out of body experience.

That’s just bad ju-ju.

Let’s spit out the numbers!

BOYS! I need some help here! The numbers are too small to see!

April 2nd, 2008 at 12:01 pm eAnd this would be my entry. I would DEARLY love to try something other than canned tuna, frozen tilapia from The Mysterious Beyond, and salmon.

I don’t even think there IS a fishmonger local to me…unless you count the bait shop down the road.

The next winner is…..

Keep up the great work! Love your blog and recipes!!!

# 489 Carolyn Rhena Hi, I just made your recipe with salmon yummy, but would have loved to have tasted the kampachi in this recipe. I love fish, sushi, sashimi anyway I can make it is wonderful delight. So glad I receive the East County Observer so I can enjoy your column. I just cooked some Spanish Mackerel that I caught in Tampa Bay and it was heavenly. I would love to win that wonderful prize, but know that the next time I am able to get to Hawaii, I will be aware of the kampachi fish. I have to admit I have never heard of it before. I hope I win! and thank you!

That’s it!

Winners, email me your name, address and phone number at jaden@steamykitchen.com.

Kona Blue will be in contact with you and arrange for week of delivery.

I hope you all enjoy your prizes!

xoxo, Jaden
