Default Today's Lunch!

I worked until noon-ish today, and now I'm having a snack.

Smoked smelt from Lake Superior, pickled beets, and an IPA. Yum!

Isn't smelt a baitfish

If you like it, enjoy it! But I don't think that's for me!

Well, it was good! My friend caught them, cleaned them, smoked them, and delivered them. It only costs me a few beers. He said he LOVES the Furious type clone I have on tap right now, so he was happy and so was I.

Well, they are also a delicacy, and you can only get them in the spring when they "run". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smelt_(fish)

They are good fried, but better smoked! They are small, though, so I hate cleaning them!

I appreciate the process, and i might even like it (wouldn't know where to get it, and i'm actually intrigued), but i think i'd rather some smoked brisket haha

I remember dipping smelt out of the Cowlitz river as a kid and taking them to my grandparents to cook them. After my first bite, I thought, "Can someone tell me why we caught these?!?!?" I imagine they would have been much better smoked.

I love smelt. I could do without the beets, but I wouldn't starve if they were available. Wow. For some reason I can suddenly smell smoked fish... yummy! Never had smoked smelt, but I bet they are good!

For my lunch today I am planning on maybe some celery or carrots and soem crackers and tuna. IF I stay at work and play out on the shop floor. If I go home, then forget the tuna! I think there is some Taco Bell in the fridge from last night.

Um...the IPA looks really good.
