Mine is also loosely based on Marc's. I just made a new batch tonight as a matter of fact.

Found an asian market called T.N.L. Superfood in Irving at 3113 N Beltline, just north of the Irving Mall off 183 that has a seafood mix without the fake crab meat in it. It is not in the freezer section but at the seafood counter with the smelt fish, etc. It was $2.49 a pound. Also, the sell smelt fish and nori for less than what I usually pay at the asain market in Haltom City that Marc also goes to. Nori was only $1.49 and the smelt was only $1.79/lb.
Willis, when you are on the Hidden Treasure page, scroll down to the Foods section. There are 4 articles linked there. Jacob linked you to one of them.
I've been making mine for several years. I base mine on Eric Borneman's recipe, including antioxidants from whole foods, a vitamin supplement (reef complete), cod liver oil and a few other odds & ends. I went to the TNL food store in Irving this weekend and I think they have changed their SF mix; this time it had fake crab & cooked mussel mixed in. I took that out added some real crab, a few scallops & extra shrimp. They did not have any fish roe. If anyone knows who carries that that would be great. Anyway fish love it and it?s so much cheaper :wink: . I might bring some to the next frag swap.
well as of right now, the closest asian markets are in garland.

until they finish building the huge asian market off of legacy and 75 youd probably have to make trips out to garland, which is what i do for when im in need of things.

Newer store opening up at Legacy and Central... As with others, the name escapes me, but should be a good source...

It calls ASIA WORLD MARKET. Locates on West side of 75 and Legacy. Nice building. It is like a strip mall with other restaurant and shops as well.

Could not find it.........also trying to go the internet route it is not finding the link either.
http://www.reefcast.com/episodes/ --- will list all of them. Pick number 5

IMO - Fast forward through the first 12 minutes. Total waste of time.
I think I may try and make some. I wonder if it will make the food processor all nasty? My girl friend has a shinny brand new kitchen aid processor i might use to make some food. And that asian market off legacy is about 1 mile from my house.
