First of all it stinks like fish, which is to be expected, but on the good side the colorful small fishing boats dock here and it is kind of neat to see them all unloading their fish and the bounty of the sea.
Emily, Andrew, Thomas and I bought a large 15 to 20 pound Salmon that was fresh off the boat. The fish monger filleted the Salmon and at our beckoning vacuum packed 1/4 of the fish and gave the rest of the fish to us to eat over the next couple of meals. Emily of course loves Salmon, and she was kind enough to scarf down a good bit of Salmon over the next 4 days.
The remaining section of salmon I decided to slow smoke as I was already cooking on the grill a smoked pork loin. I thought it would make for a wonderful dinner for a house guest we had visiting, but our guest did not show up until 12:30 midnight and the meal was a bust! His loss eh?
So far be it for me to let good food go to waste, so here it is:
