Warren Wong likes the idea of eating water hyacinth:
“Read your recipe on cooking water hyacinth, have IDEA for you. My good wife YU YING … (I) suggest she prepares it with ginger, onions, garlic, cha siew (char sui) or fish. Add chicken or slices of porterhouse steak — wow, you have this most fantastic dish. And wholesome, too.”
Wok the weed with olive oil, Wong suggests. Boaters could enjoy this dish and clear a path for their boats.
The hyacinth at Buckley Cove Marina is mind-boggling. There’s enough out there to feed all the hungry people in San Joaquin.
Meanwhile, the city’s spokeswoman sends along the section of the Muni Code that prohibits firing a gun within city limits.
