Good Morning to all! And Happy Thursday!
While I've already posted some smoked sardines on this site; Dirtsailor suggested that I start showing the prep work involved in the pieces I make, and so I figured that having smoked more sardines this morning (at 6 a.m. or so even) that was a good enough place to start.
If nothing else, you'll know that I don't simply buy "prepared food" and plunk it down on the table, and that I am indeed gutting, scaling, smoking, and so forth, myself.
OK, Cheers to today! These sardines, and smoked sweet potato, were AMAZING! Make today delicious! - Leah
The above sardines were just exclaiming, "Please have me for lunch!"
Grizzly as all get out "morning photo" as it is; I adore gutting and scaling fish, and find it therapeutic and calming even! My kind of therapy! (Kindly forgive the early morning sloppiness, though I wasn't going for "Vogue Magazine" here, by any stretch, and just happily making my lunch)!
Layering the fish and some sliced sweet potato onto my little mini "thing," this smoked for 25 minutes and smelled fantastically!
Kale, shallots, olive oil and oregano, just topped this off and it was DELICIOUS! I eat these like corn on the cob, munching up the tail and bones (great calcium right) and loving it all the way!
The remains reveal a secret: I'm very thorough, and a "good eater." Though somehow, I think that part is known.
OK then, that's my first attempt to show the prep. May Dirtsailor and all others enjoy! And here's a huge cheers to everyone's Thursday being fabulous!!!!! - Leah
