I love smoked fish. Any fish smoked is good with me, salmon, trout, mackerel, eel etc.Love em'all. Must be my norwegian background. Anyhow, I was so happy the other day when a new smoked fish place opened up no so far from me. The smell that met me when I opened the door was amazing, much finer then any perfume you can buy. I bought 2 smoked trouts to have for dinner that night. Made them with a very simple side dish, vinegar baked beets. It's so good......You should try them, with or without the smoked goodness.
